Battle of the young Wasps 8s this afternoon - Barbeary vs Fisilau. Both playing really well. Also Elliot Stooke putting in his usual shift.

I see from the Beeb that Alfie scored twice in Bath's 41 - 24 victory over Exeter.

One of them here
Did he learn that from Nathan Hughes?

Also, someone tell him it's December now so he can shave of that Movember 'tashe.

It's like no one in that organization has two brain cells to rub together.

I have viewed the appointment of Borthwick as a short term measure until OF can become head coach.

OF has all the facets required:

A better track record than Eddie.
Better people skills than Eddie.
Brilliant tactician.
Well liked by everyone that counts.
Family history.
A certain way with words to impress the press.

Plus a great rapport with referees.

Better still Owen .......  just retire.  Take the dog for walks.  Zip your lip.

A lot of talk he is heading to Wigan RL...

But they have lots of good players, why do they want Owen?

Even if the RFU approved the move I can't see them giving Wasps any funding. How much do the Gallagher Prem teams get from RFU currently? Of course, if Wasps return to the Championship or lower then that funding is much much lower.

How is funding handled in the URC? Does the URC provide any funding themselves or is it all handled by the relevant national unions? IRFU funds Leinster and gives any leftover money to the other regions. The WRU just about funds their regions. I assume Edinburgh and Glasgow get the bulk of their funding from the SRFU.

No union funding makes it much harder to survive let alone compete.

NFL teams have an enforced maximum squad size so are the RFU/PRL planning to introduce a similar restriction? It would certainly stop clubs from trying to hoard academy players.

Of course, the RFU/PRL would then have to *cough* enforce it...

Reading this and today?s media, can this be the impetus for our leader OF to be considering that a move to the 13 a side might be attractive?

Oh, god, no. I've just started following league as I'm fed up with union. Stay in union please, Owen.

Yep, very bad form from the fans.

The Fijian war dance is called Cibi.

Interesting that 3 teams have ex wasps starting at 8 this weekend.

It's a shame one of those teams isn't England.

Sweeney statement, probably:

"The RFU are very disappointed that Jersey Reds decided to time this action to draw attention away from the World Cup..."

How much did Holland loan to Atlas? It was only about ?2 million wasn't it? That's damn cheap for a stadium!
If his only interest is the stadium then maybe he'll be willing to sell the Warriors club, brand and IP on for quite cheap if a supporters group/trust can get organised?

Oz conceded so many turnovers and have Michael Hooper sat at home...

So far England are the only team not to score a try. Even Romania managed to get one against Ireland.

Poor old Argentina. They're used to battling against brilliant teams like South Africa, NZ and Australia but we managed to bore them to death!

I don't think either of these decisions are going to assuage the Pacific Island nations' concerns over the disciplinary process.

Was any decision arrived at regarding Billy's red card?

Probably but for evening sittings they seem to wait until the next day to release -
However just read that the OF Board started at 7.30 AM and finally completed at 8.30 PM. A staggeringly insane length of time. I know it was different panels but maybe the Fat Bill one had to be delayed.

Just 13 hours of Owen saying "I'm sworry"...
