I note the same tactic was employed by Pocock against Ireland last autumn. I presume the Australians don't play rugby either?

Damage limitation by a team that can't play the game.

Relegation has to come into the six nations as Italy need to learn how to play the game or F off.

Nah not relegation. Just promote Georgia.

Italy will get better under O'Shea and Venter and Catt

Was that first line in reference to Pocock or to Italy?

It seemed to work really well resulting in a 21 point loss, have people lost all sense over this.

Eddie is quite clearly trolling here and he has been doing so for quite some time. Recently, I heard Gary Neville talk about his approach to press conferences and interviews and he talked about what he would look to get out of it, his objectives. Eddie implements the exact same method, he doesnt listen to the question just attempts to frame the discussion post or pre match to himself and the teams benefit.

He can see here that his team is going to get a fair bit of flak from the media who expected England to run over Italy, so is moving the debate to be about him and italy's tactics. Clever, and fans, players and journalists should just ignore it, as he is being completely disingenuous.

Is Georgia paying some people to promote their cause? Whistle The way this story keeps growing and growing I think we might have a bit of a Trumpish espionage mystery on our hands.

I'd like to say to Italy that I'm ready and willing to be paid to support their case for continued entry in our lovely 6N family of love and kisses. Just drop the $500,000 down payment into my usual Swiss bank account.

Well so far as I can see, that's about 60 ponts better than expected.

Well done Italy!

SecretFly I've had enough of you mocking me and making me laugh at myself in the process Wink

Its happened on 2 threads now.

But he's clearly exaggerating the point here and I think the OP missed that. It was a obviously a game of rugby but as I've said on other threads, I think the tactic used could have bad consequences for the sport as a whole.

win - bonus point

Bit of weird gane though -will benefit England by coming through that.

I reckon the AB's would have adapted lot quicker - not sure about anyone else - it's fast game out there.

Good on the Italians though, why be lambs to the slaughter - 80 minutes of hammering turned to 40 minutes of hammering.

Think outside the box.

I actually think his comments about Scotland were more interesting; the stuff about pressure and expectation etc.
Most people would think all the pressure would be England going for the record and at home going for the grand slam.

We've had to put up with England not playing within the spirit of the game for several decades if not a century with their 10 man rugby and this Italy thing happens and they completely spit the dummy and bleat on about some 'spirit of the game' nonsense. Not only that but Eddie has the audacity to bring up the Trevor Chappell incident as a comparison. The man has no shame.

I have to say that if it wasn't for #ruckgate / #englandnervousbreakdown I would not have paid much attention to that game so well done Connor for bringing new things to look forward to.
For what it's worth this tactic has been used in super rugby a year or two ago and Clermont also sometimes use it on their restarts on time to time.

Nah, not really. Most English ex-pros bar Dawson commended Italy, the players didn't seem to mind except on the pitch when they asked for clarity, and I'd say at worst it's a 50/50 split between posters here as to whether they think it was brilliant or awful. Jones, the Australian, was being ridiculous, you're right.

I'll add my voice to those Englishmen saying 'well done Italy' - they made us look like dolts for 40 mins, served us right.

It's long been established that Chris Robshaw didn't know a penalty kick at goal was worth 3 points, but it appears he isn't the only one oblivious to the simplest of rules. England don't know the rules.
