Tactics:


  • Use of heavy carriers, and mobile support runners in the pack to create forward momentum. 
  • Phase play with half backs dictating play. Look for territory when need to gain field position.
  • Counter attack whenever possible.

I've named a fully foregin side and a full eq bench.
Who should I swap from the bench to be one of the starting 4 eq?
Do people rate Thomas or Collier more?
Is the backrow balanced or not?
Do I have enough carrying options in the pack?
Where is my main weakness now?

Not sure about that. League looks quite tight this year. I am expecting yourself and Bath to come hard at the top 6. League is too open to call I reckon.

I'm a long way from top 6.

You've looked the best two sides in pre's I reckon, any coincidence you have the best two 10's in world??

Best, in terms of the 10's is subjective, and ultimately doesn't always win you things. Half back pairing is important though, which is why I like to have a proven combo that work together. Parra and FTD did well for me in the early days of this game when they were the France pairing and hopefully Smith and Cruden can do the same.

I wouldn't say you are a long way from top 6.

Think it's impossible to say who is the best side until we see the form of the players in their comps next season! One injury or one previously unrated player having a great season can change a lot

Will just be a mixture of combos mate. Normally make 9/10 chnages. Think i've pretty much played everyone's full strength side so you might as well carry on the trend ;-)

Saints now looking like league favs for me alongside Wasps.

Losing Hayman big loss for Chris, he was immense last season. If Jones ends up in the Champ he can't be rated for me. Every top team needs a good TH, make or break for Jones

Haha Pooly you criticised me for playing Hayman last year in predos a few times, not sure if I can win with you  Sad 

Papers saying Jones is looking at a move to Toulon at the moment. Amazing how comics can make someone rich enough to get all of the signings for that club. Know Jones isn't what he was, but will still offer a steady scrum.

All subjective Pete. Big FTD fan but hate Parra due to him having zero idea about how to play. Similar to yachvili it's all about them. Scrum half is the link
And he does not do it. Deserves to be 2/3 choice in a position France poor at. Parra is one of the players I don't get like Scott Williams who only has Rabo form and the odd moment internAtionally.

France have issues at 2,9,10 which are key positions hence why they are poor

Used to be a big fan of parra but said for a long time he has declined and holds play up.

Think he does not suit an open game. If you were going to play 9 man rugby he does a job but the game is moving on.


Said this Way before you signed him. I like the Montpelier lad

Like I said there are several players I don't rate like piccles Parra Williams etc


There are others I never used to rate but who have developed like SOB cipriani etc

If we all went dredging through past comments we would have a field day. Fielden better than sharples Youngs best SH in the worlds etc.

That comment was from a while ago and for me Parra has not been like he was for a long time.

Worked well with FTD at the time but seems to have had all the spark knocked out of him.

 Or you could grow up a bit, ignore the comment as peoples opinions do change, and not spend the day digging through old comments in order to continue an argument that is both boring, and ultimately pointless.

Or I could type Matt and Parra into google and hey presto.

I'll respond if I want to respond as Matt always does.

Not going to say another word on the matter. It's opinions. You need to calm yourself.

Previous owner of parra will say I often marked him down. What does it matter.

Spending days trawling and trying to knock players others own like Kurindrani, Mas etc etc is weird at best.


It's a game people have opinions. I think what most people have an issue with is your relentless " Wumming"

That's my final point on the matter.

We all have players we don't rate for me that would include faletau, Williams, biggar, Madigan, parra,piccles, and many others

I'm perfectly calm.

You wum as much as I do, I like a bit of banter.

I don't need to spend days looking to mark Kurindrani down, you just have to watch him.

I've named a fully foregin side and a full eq bench.
Who should I swap from the bench to be one of the starting 4 eq?
Do people rate Thomas or Collier more?
Is the backrow balanced or not?
Do I have enough carrying options in the pack?
Where is my main weakness now?
