    No. Sometimes you get a 2 day weekend sometimes 3 or 4 days, depending on holidays etc...

    Actually there are no pockets on rugby shorts anymore as they snap thumbs occasionally.
    For those over the pond, the rivalry between forwards and backs is one of the great bar arguments that we love to debate over a pint.
    Forwards are considered piano-shifters. Backs piano-tuners. For me, scrum halves are the bollocks.

    Forwards decide who wins. Backs decide by how many.

    my son the scrummy said:
    ‘That’s old. And not always true. In my experience, the scrum half decides who wins.
    And by how much.’

    More than a grain of truth there. Over the last few years the 9 has been doing more than feed the scrum and "help" the ref.
    Look at the number of times Faf De Klerk, Aaron Smith or Connor Murray have done more in a game than their 10s.

    Forwards decide who wins, backs decide by how many, and gobby little scrum halves are often the first to get Deep Heat applied to their bollocks, usually by their own team mates. :D

    Excellent. I’ve occasionally wanted to apply the Deep Heat myself.

    Ahem... in a punitive manner, not a pervy all-in-the-family type scenario.

    Any Brits out there...how about Exeter Chiefs! My home town.

    A remarkable ascent in ten years.
