Wasps Rugby Discussion / Sintu Manjezi incoming?
« on: May 02, 2022, 05:38:26 PM »
He is rumoured to be leaving Bulls to join an English Premiership club based in the Midlands.

1.97m (6' 5.5")
114kg (17st 13lbs)

Saints pull it off by one point, get 5 points, Quins get 2. What a game. I doubt many of those players of either team will be fit to play next week. They are all utterly out on their feet.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / BB Livestream
« on: January 24, 2022, 03:44:02 PM »
Just watched a livestream interview with BB on Facebook.

Some takeaways (his view/opinion).

Obviously he doesn't 'know' who is leaving (and not yet announced), but feels the main opportunity for signings are in the backs. Maybe Wasps are still looking for someone like Esterhuizen, who they tried to sign before Quins nabbed him.

Seemed to suggest the pack was not going to see much by way of change other than what we have seen/know already.

Hinted that we will see Jack back soon also.

Oh, and he is pretty sure Jimmy is off to Tigers.

Some discussion around Alfie and mad Eddie, and around Jacob/Charlie (needing experience and development).

Wasps Rugby Discussion / Sale Post Match Thoughts

Not good enough in almost all areas of the game. Little likely to change for at least 4-5 weeks.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / Anthony Watson off from Bath, but where?
« on: December 30, 2021, 06:09:20 PM »
He doesn't know, but doesn't want to stay.

About as fragile/available as Marcus, and probably wants a big salary. Can't see anybody snapping him up. These days it is about VFM, and an expensive player who is not often wearing your shirt is not what you want.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / Red Card hit on Tom West Ignored by Poite
« on: December 14, 2021, 08:36:13 AM »
Video here:

At speed, flying off the feet clearout, can be seen to target Tom's head, he looks directly at him as he does it. Poite is looking at it as it happens, and the assistant raises his flag, which Poite ignores. Knocks Tom back off his feet.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / Injury Updates from BB
« on: December 01, 2021, 07:09:17 AM »

Ifs, buts and maybes, but no really good news. Hougaard doubtful, Watson maybe, but hasn't done any training (maybe this morning he will), Crossdale out for a few weeks, Miller a few more weeks yet, West maybe, Cruse maybe ready for Irish, Harris some more months yet.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / Charlie back in training

He twittered:

Kicking and running for the first time this week.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / Sale busting the cap with Ford?
« on: November 17, 2021, 11:51:19 AM »
1.6m over 3 years for one player?

Not considering this is Ford we are talking about. Insane on 3 counts; the player himself, the annual cost to their cap, a 3 year deal.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / Morning All
« on: October 30, 2021, 07:03:16 AM »
Morning All.

It is supposed to be raining right now where I am, a few miles up from Bath (the main road, which is maybe 100 yards from my house, pretty much goes straight to Bath along the Fosse Way). Of course, that is the BBC weather forecast, so it isn't raining. Dark it is, even the BBC can get the sunrise time right. Feels warm as well, with a Southerly breeze.

Not on BT, and while VIPbox lists the game, there are no streams showing.

I have a good feeling about today. Intent and intensity is what we need.
