Debate Over Denny Solomona

Monday, May 1st, 2017

There is much that goes on every week, including controversial discussions between rugby experts where different leaders give their opinions on pressing matters in the world of rugby.

The latest debate ensues about the stance that Rugby Football Union has taken over Denny Solomona. He has been in great form for Sale Sharks. There has now been a call for switching over from Castleford Tigers to get him fast tracked into the England squad of Eddie Jones or to get him for the Lions squad led by Warren Gatland.

There is much going for this 23 year old player who hails from New Zealand. He is a Samoan international player in the rugby league. He gained attention when he scored in five tries in the first games of the competition. As a result, he qualified for playing for England as on March 9th as per prevailing residency laws. He was a representative for the Samoa League last year as his grandparents are Samoan. (more…)

By warning Scotland not to allow their confidence turn into complacency, Eddie Jones has ignited the Calcutta Cup fuse.

In less than a week’s time, the teams would head out to Twickenham on Sunday. The match is expected to be a major deciding factor in the outcome of the Six Nations Championship

Where Scotland can pull off a confident win at Twickenham, they would be heading home with their first win at the Twickenham since 1983. They go into the round four with the knowledge that they can make some major shakeup in the contest for the title, win the Triple Crown and shatter England’s hopes of a Grand Slam.

The opening weekend of the competition saw the Scottish team prevail over Ireland, while also defeating Wales last Saturday in a 29-13 victory. Since then, the confidence level of the team has been on the rise. However, they would be facing an England side recently coming away from their not so great experience against Italy last week Sunday. (more…)

Joe Marler Defends Team But Gets Warning

Friday, August 12th, 2016

There has been a lot of theatrics that could deviate one’s mind from the main game though Eddie is determined to let nothing stand in the way of him leading his men to victory. One such incidence that has occurred concerns Joe Marler.

He has been issued a warning from formal RFU over the comments he has passed over Bob Dwyer. It shows that players need to be careful about what kind of posts they put up on social media channels that is not exempted from scrutiny. Marler passed a derogatory comment against Dwyer when there was a claim that Dan Cole might have scrimmaged in an illegal manner in the first Test.

The tweet in answer was a reaction from Joe which was natural but not acceptable against people like a former coach Bob Dwyer. Hence, he has been issued a warning and he would have to follow the warnings that RFU has in place. The organization has strict norms about the use of social media in such contexts and it seems that Joe has certainly rubbed people the wrong way as a result. (more…)
