One for the anoraks.

Has anyone heard if the contrived bonus point system is to be continued this season?

Yes. It's being retained for 2018. Not sure if it's still "on trial".

Sure, it was an unqualified success last year. Engerland won didn't they?

Maybe they should invite Namibia and Botswana to join and split the championship into 2 conferences?

Can we all have a good laugh at the Six Nations please?

Turned down an offer from RBS thinking they could better. Well they couldn't so went crawling back and had to accept less. What a shower of idiots.

Oh maybe RBS offered more and they are the idiot's :scratch:

Times have the story but behind a pay wall.

In that case from now on don't bother yourself with this international stuff. We will make this a non Baggy thread.

Everyones a winner. :lol:

Ironic given our perceived strength is in the backs that we have 3 forwards compared to 1 back.
