  1. Personally I don't think that he's been scapegoated. I haven't seen anyone talk to an official in the way that he did and escape a card or a citing. I agree with Slacker that bans for this sort of thing are needed to try and stop it from creeping into the game.
  2. Also, Sinckler banned for two weeks, as expected:
  3. Totally agree LR. We are seeing this creeping into the game a bit more now and we have to be careful in how it's dealt with. I don't want people to think that I'm only laying into Bristol or England players either. I was only complaining to my friends about a couple of the Munster players chatting back to the referee the other week against Clermont. There was also at least one Clermont player waving an imaginary card, which I'm sure nobody wants to see. Dylan Hartley got an 11-week ban for calling Wayne Barnes a ******* cheat. Obviously more serious than what Sinckler said but I expect hi
  4. I didn't realise that I was obliged to comment on the performance I didn't see the whole game. I watched most of the first half and parts of the second. I usually watch the PRO14 or TOP14 so probably all of the other posters here would know a lot more about the Premiership than me. The short answer to your question is yes. Bristol have already beaten Connacht in Galway which takes some doing. I think that they have quality players in most positions now and have certainly improved defensively in the last while. Most teams have to take their lumps for a few years in Europe befor
  5. Forgot to post this before for anyone interested. The Loose Head is well worth a follow on Twitter and a podcast listen. He's got several other high-profile coaches on for this series too:
  6. Good second half from Bristol. Poor enough in the first half but they sorted it out. Some really poor decisions turning down kickable penalties at 9-0 down but looked a totally different side after half time.
  7. https://www.the42.ie/peter-mccabe-5300899-Dec2020/?utm_source=email Nice article with Peter McCabe here for anyone who is interested. Bristol have been getting some decent coverage in our media lately because of the Irish connections.
  8. Really good win for Bristol. I didn't think they'd have enough experience to go to Galway and win. Fair play. Maul looked really strong. Bizarre that Connacht didn't kick the penalty for a BP at the end. Mad stuff.
