Didn't they all agree to start pre-season early so they could fit with his availability?

I see Fodes has also posted a gloat about not being at pre-season!

Pre-season on June 11th, don't believe it, many internationals are away in the SH on post season. When are we going to hear from the Premiership Rugby Ltd boss? He moans because the likes of Adams and Francis are due to fly out with Wales to the USA and unlikely to play then says nothing about this. When I first read it I had to check my diary that it wasn't April Fools Day.

Pity the poor Welshman again with the ever growing chip. Never mind Eify : you might be happy in your next life.

You know full well what's going on Eif - 2 weeks training with Boyd here.

What a welcoming bunch we are!!
L4S, just had an idea, rather than spouting anti-Welsh drivel on here, why donít you just PM Eif and spout off to him directly so that;

A - we donít have to read your incessant whining

B - that each thread doesnít get hijacked by the anti-Eif brigade

Alternatively ban Eif - although as many have stated on here, a lot of what he says is very valid and he has an incredibly good knowledge of the game.

Why does it bother you so much ? As you are well aware, Eif will have an anti English slant in almost all of his posts. As long as that continues, there is likely to be feedback !

Just wrote a long response to your question and then deleted it as i would be wasting my time trying to get my point across to people like L4S.

i will simply start posting anti-english comments back at all when someone posts a load of pro-english rubbish in the future - seems like the right thing to do if we are tarring everyone with the same brush!!

I haven't seen what was written, yes Eif has a Welsh bias but in his fairness, he throws insults at the RFU and other rugby bodies, not the English as a whole.

I'm assuming, yet again a poster has been throwing remarks around about the Welsh as a whole.

I'm getting bored of this, I haven't got time for dealing with these stupid comments, if I see anything from now on I'm just going to start banning people

Can't see anything on here from L4S nor can I see any anti-Welsh stuff but I do see people reacting to the blatant anti-English drivel repeatedly demonstrated by a certain poster who, I agree, COULD be quite readable at times if only he didn't let the negativity constantly creep in. I fear this will never happen which is why I limited my response to ha-ha - he rarely bothers to enter into sensible rugby discourse. Whether he is deliberately provocative is impossible to say but if he is it's extremely boring. If it's not deliberate he has my sympathy.

tedge,

L4S's post looks like it has been deleted. Standard Welsh/Sheep jibe.

Oh I see - I don't condone that kind of response at all

Spot on Tedge ; as you state his posts could be quite readable at times.
As it stands Eif's anti English constant jibes should expect to get some back. I am sure he can handle it !
If you are going to ban individuals from now on Saint Ted, I assume you mean Eif aswell rather than those that just give it back ?

Back to the main thread - I hope that starting so early doesnít mean we are over cooked come September. Itís a long hard season and the guys have had a tough time mentally and physically, so starting back in early June is giving them little time to rest and recuperate (unless I have missed something)

Eif can be very dismissive of us Scots at times as well.

I decided long ago to just ignore him.
