    (Toulon) Baa Baas would be more accurate tbh


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,613 ✭✭✭ connachta


    If you add Clermont, Stade and La Rochelle players, it's a revenge team after missed seasons!


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    quick start Baabaas


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Could be a long day for England.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    2 already for Ashton (first wasn't really his though!)

    Ashton making a mockery of the England team


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,276 ✭✭✭✭ AdamD


    That was fantastic by Ashton


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    This is rugby porn


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    Impressed by Ford making that tackle, although think he tried to knock Niyi out almost immediately after.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    Embarrassing for Eddie Jones. Joke plays working well.

    We'll be on players taking the conversions for their own scores soon, like the Legends' games.

    England getting stuffed

    Zero defence rugby.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    game on


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    There was a BaaBaas player taken out way off the ball there


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    Ashton hat trick. Vito's offload was ridiculous.

    Russell did well popping it off the floor too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    Tackling less than optional I think!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    About 9 England players offside at the kickoff there

    41 points in 27 mins of rugby


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,276 ✭✭✭✭ AdamD


    Curry quite literally sitting on the ground as he turned that over


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    Lads its a Baa Baas game, the rules are 'relaxed' for the spectacle.

    Best thing about this game is the calls to include ashton that will inevitably follow.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Score line looks like an 80 minute game of sevens


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Jonnie Hammond is the commentator here right?

    Always liked him, I presume if Sky keep the Championship then he'll stay but he'd be a great poach for Premier Sports.


  • Registered Users Posts: 116 ✭✭ Chex LeMeneux


    That is outrageous!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Audibly exhaled when I heard Laidlaw was coming on, but in fairness to him looks like he's got into the spirit of the game


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    The BaaBaas centres have been hilariously good


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,466 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Gotta love the fun the baabaas have, lobbe squirting kaysar in the face while being interviewing and giggling like a school girl


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    oh Tipuric. amazing

    Knock on for me though

    George Ford has good gas!


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02
