Can't help feel that England will and Wasps missed Cippriani today, much as I really rate Miller.

Thanks for trying VV. What a game, I really couldn't see us coming back and then in the last quarter they gained momentum. Shame the energy wasn't quite there to support the breaks, looked like we surprised ourselves at times!

I have searched in the admin panel and I can't find out how to un-ban you.  And none of the other admins are admitting to having banned you!

Anyway, Morning Notso and everyone else.

Hoping to watch it on a stream, but am ferrying kids around so may well miss it...

We have a decent chance I think, but I wouldn't be surprised by a loss.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / Morning all!

Morning all, best wishes to you and yours. I still cannot post or pm on the other site, recently discovered that I can post on other team sites in Sports Network, so it does appear I got banned from the Wasps site, no explanation given no response to messages, the nice editor of the England site forwarded my last question to the correct person. Shame, as most of the chat is still in the other one.

I hope the pack have something left in the tank for this one, it would really put us in a good position. I wonder if Miller has been focussing on fly half and this is why we haven't seen much of him. In any case, really hope he goes well.

May the best team on the day win, but, you know, Come on You Wasps!

Safe travels,
Notso

Not complaining about the decision, it is a judgement after all, but do English rugby release a video of all citings incidents?

Perhaps feeling sensitive as a supporter, but cannot help wonder if there is some bad feeling within the decision making circles.6

Ah Daly will be called into England squad and broken again. Gaby decision is ridiculous unless there was another damning view. If so it should be published. Questions need to be asked of the citing process when worse tackles are missed frequently. Also former players should not be able to be employed on matches where their decisions could impact on the next match which involves their former employers.

So he misses Gloucester, Irish, Leicester and Sale. Glad Daly is nearly back.

That is outrageous based on the other things in that game that were not cited.

He was cited by independent citing commissioner Nick Wood for a dangerous tackle on Exeter Chiefs’ Sam Hill, contrary to law 9.13, in the second half of the Aviva Premiership match Wasps v Exeter Chiefs on Sunday 18 February 2018. This reflects Wasps upcoming playing schedule.

Lovobalavu contested the charge but was found guilty by the panel. He was given a four week suspension and is free to play again on 10 April 2018.

Panel chairman Jeremy Summers said: “The panel found that the player’s shoulder had struck the head of the Exeter player following a tackle that had been recklessly high and delivered with force.

“The panel are mandated to enter at mid-range and having given the player credit for his clean record and other mitigating factors, reduced the sanction by two weeks. He was not eligible for full credit having not accepted the charge.”

The panel comprised Jeremy Summers (chair) with Becky Essex and Michael Tutty.
