I can name all 197 UN recognised countries and states in 11 minutes.

Yes, I have been very bored without Rugby.

Wasps Rugby Discussion / New Skills

Its a bit off topic.. so apologies .

I caught my first mole this morning. I think it probably happened 2 nights ago but I didn't dare disturb the traps I set in case what I thought happened had actually occured.

Has anyone else acquired any new non rugby related skills in the last 4 months or so?

His first appearance in the Premiership was in the St Valentine Day's massacre, which we just edged!

"Update on Wasps pair hit by major knee injuries"

Somewhat alarming.

But it's an update on injuries from Lee. Some better news about Benji.

That would certainly be interesting and probably unique - particularly as they are both dead.  ;D

That's going to kick up a big stink. Council funds being used to help Wasps.
If you look at Bobby Bridges' reports on Twitter, yes it has!

I must admit, I find it a bit unfair on Wasps to be receiving flak because it's for the Commonwealth games - it's not like the council has just handed a free 5m to Wasps.

Ah but don't let facts get in the way of a good bit of vitriol.

But let's not pretend that hosting the Commonwealth Games at the Ricoh would be some sort of benevolent gesture by Wasps for the benefit of all of Coventry.  It will be a massive commercial boost for Wasps as well as for the city as a whole.

Absolutely, one of the perks that Wasps no doubt considered when making an offer on the Ricoh in the first place. Obviously not the commonwealth games itself, but large events in general.

I doubt Wasps made a bid to host events.. it was probably CCC who enquired first, then ran it by Wasps. It seems sensible to then upgrade the facilities being used for the events taking place.

The outside of the atrium is probably being redeveloped to process bar coded tickets or cards before entry to the main building (i.e. before the steps up)..

Its not like Wasps are getting a new pitch, seating, and a new motif nailed onto the west stand.

Ticket sales proceeds will presumably go to the organising body and then any scraps fed back to Wasps to cover overheads.

Wasps will hope to make money by selling space outside the stadium to food vendors etc.

I'm not sure I'd be interested in watching Judo but perhaps wrestling..
