It’s strange hearing this.

I’m playing rugby over here in London and it’s growing. Teams everywhere, the streets are abuzz with 6 Nations vibes. It’s institutional.

Was in Paris last weekend for England v France and the stadium was packed, 80,000 people and an insane atmosphere.

I think Australia is just saturated

Northern hemisphere rugby has always been different to Southern Hemisphere rugby. Sadly, referees are becoming so fickle that all rugby now replicates NH rugby. One pass off the ruck to a fat prop who advances 0.25m. Over and over again. NH crowds love it. We hate it

I think that’s a fair assessment.

In the Sydney Subbies rugby that I played for years (until moving OS) it was very league dominated, lots of islander boys with much more focus on quick hands

Coming over here, it was a shock to the system to play slow, muddy, grinding rugby. It’s not about getting quick plays to expose the flanks with fancy backline plays (ala Benji) but instead about piston-drives up the middle and much more tactical kicking. As a 10, this was a challenge to adapt to.

So we play on the biannual Bingham Cup and the aussie sides always smash everyone. Why? Because the European sides come to play wet, muddy, 80min rugby with fat bastards hitting each other non stop. The aussies come and just throw it wide and score before anyone has even taken their seats.

In essence, the aussies are playing “league/touch”

I just watched the first episode that dropped earlier today.

10/10 from start to finish!
Perfectly picked up 20 years after Nemesis (and the Romulan supernova in ST09), yet forging it’s own way forward.
Seeing Picard in the TNG-era command uniform made me squeal!

I guess not

Could you post a screenshot of this?

I’ve run the site through a Google Mobile Accessibility scanner and it hasn’t picked up anything “too small”… so obviously it’s missed what ever you are seeing

my pleasure. I was getting some housekeeping tasks complete before the season gets going. Last thing we needed was to schedule this during Feb-Oct

Hey everyone.

The site was offline overnight and this morning as did some work on the server. It took a few hours longer than I anticipated, sorry about that.

The work was entirely server related, nothing has changed on the forum.

It should appear for you when ever you open a thread.

What browser are you using and on what phone?

Guys. Take this non-LM discussion to the General Discussion thread

Right. That took a while to clean up!
I don’t know if it’s a full moon or if people are on the sauce, but that was a right mess.
I thought I’d stepped into a kids playground! Honestly, from everyone involved in that, you all looked ridiculous.

It’s embarrassing.

Please just have a think before you type something up and click “post”.

The line is drawn here, now move on and act like the adults that you are.
