Preview: Guinness Premiership, Rd Two

The 2008/09 Guinness Premiership got off to an entertaining start last weekend – the weather played ball, the teams looked lively and full of running and the Experimental Law Variations (ELVs) confused the hell out of everyone…

Rugby 365 reports that it sounds like a start to the 2008 Super 14; plenty of entertainment and energy, but not much of a clue when it came to those damned ELVs.

Love them or hate them – they are here to stay and the sooner the teams get used to it, the better. No amount of complaining is going to help them; teams need to adapt or die.

One team that will be dreading the word ‘die’, is the Newcastle Falcons who suffered a home loss first-up to the Sale Sharks – a team they had never lost to at Kingston Park.

Sadly for the Falcons it does not get much easier for them this week as the ever-improving Northampton Saints travel up north to take them on. Yes, Jonny Wilkinson is back – or at least so it says on the official Newcastle Falcons website – but only time will tell if England’s 2003 RWC hero can help them avoid the drop.

It is early to mention the ‘d’ or ‘r’ words (that’s the ‘drop’ and relegation!), but with Northampton showing so much promise last week and with the Worcester Warriors recruiting smartly in the off-season, one can’t help but tip Newcastle – and to a lesser extent Bristol – as relegation candidates.

Including last season, the Falcons have won just one out of 11 Guinness Premiership matches – including three losses on the bounce at home. Yes, Saints have won just one of their last six visits to Kingston Park in all competitions – in March 2006 – but it proves once again how important it is for the home team to win on Sunday.

The second round of the 2008/09 Guinness Premiership kicks-off at Edgeley Park on Friday night when Sale Sharks host Saracens in what is shaping up to be a mouth-watering contest.

Sale will be chasing back-to-back opening wins for the first time since 2004/05, whilst Sarries – who went down narrowly to Harlequins last weekend – will be all out to prevent successive losses, something that has not happened to Saracens since the 1999/2000 season.

Not helping them, however, is the fact that they have lost their last six Guinness Premiership away games – their worst effort since 2002/03.

Sharks boss Philippe Saint-André said: “We started well with a victory at Newcastle, but tomorrow (Friday) evening’s game against Saracens will be very tough.

“We want to return to winning ways at Edgeley Park after the London Irish defeat at the end of last season. We have a very talented squad here at the club and yet again I have had to leave players out of the matchday 22.”

Looking at Saturday’s action, Bath host Gloucester in another West Country derby – that after Bath played, and beat, Bristol last weekend. Central to the Bath cause was a certain Andrew ‘Butch’ James, who was pressed straight into action for his club, despite coming off a physical Tri-Nations campaign for the Springboks.

James earned plenty of praise for his performances last season and judging by his showing at the Memorial Ground last week, it’s simple; stop James and you can beat Bath. If James dictates proceedings, there is trouble – as Bristol found out.

Harlequins and Bristol and Leicester Tigers and London Irish are next up on Saturday; with the home teams favoured to add to their wins from last week – Quins having beaten Sarries and Tigers having kept up their fine recent record at the ‘Shed’ by once again defeating Gloucester.

Tigers were far from their best against Gloucester and their new South African head coach Heyneke Meyer was the first to admit that.

“We’ve got to keep our feet on the ground and it’s very important that we don’t get complacent,” Meyer told the Leicester Mercury this past week. “I wasn’t totally happy with the performance and there are things to work on.”

Of course, the Tigers coach – who could be forgiven for casting his eye over to his native South Africa, after more off-field dramas involving the current Springbok coach – is still very new to the Premiership. One win at the ‘Shed’, as valuable as it might be, does not make an entire season.

But as he admits, himself, it’s a learning process. “I learned a lot,” he added. “I want to win every game, but I know London Irish will be tough. They had a good win at the weekend (26-14 over Wasps) and we shall need to focus better.

“But the biggest thing from Sunday was that it confirmed the character of the side. You need character if you want to win trophies and championships.”

Sunday’s action will see two very desperate home teams in action; as defending champions London Wasps host the Worcester Warriors and the Newcastle Falcons entertain Northampton Saints.

Wasps lost both of their opening matches in the 2004/05 season – the last time any defending champions have achieved that ‘feat’ – and they would not want to repeat that.

It is hardly dire times for the Londoners, however, and they certainly proved last season that they can fight back from any position on the log.

The Falcons, however, will be desperate for victory to keep the eager doomsayers at bay.

“It’s all about winning at this level, and nothing but a win will do,” said a determined Newcastle assistant coach Alan Tait on his club’s official website.

“This isn’t about player development or patting people on the back, it’s the Guinness Premiership and it’s do-or-die every single week. The players are starting to understand that, and as a professional the only way to fix it is to go out, work hard in training and win the next game.”

Weekend fixtures, teams and predictions:

Friday, September 12
Sale Sharks v Saracens, 19.45 local time (20.45 SA time)
Edgeley Park
Referee: Rob Debney

The teams:

Sale Sharks: 15 Mathew Tait, 14 Rory Lamont, 13 Luke McAlister, 12 Chris Bell, 11 David Doherty, 10 Charlie Hodgson, 9 Richard Wigglesworth, 8 Sebastien Chabal, 7 Sean Cox, 6 Luke Abraham, 5 Brent Cockbain, 4 Chris Jones, 3 Eifion Roberts, 2 Sebastien Bruno, 1 Andrew Sheridan.
Replacements: 16 Neil Briggs, 17 Lionel Faure, 18 Dean Schofield, 19 Kristian Ormsby, 20 Dwayne Peel, 21 Mark Cueto, 22 Oriol Ripol.

Saracens: 15 Richard Haughton, 14 Rodd Penney, 13 Kevin Sorrell, 12 Adam Powell, 11 Kameli Ratuvou, 10 Glen Jackson, 9 Neil de Kock, 8 Michael Owen, 7 Andy Saull, 6 Chris Jack, 5 Hugh Vyvyan, 4 Steve Borthwick (captain), 3 Cencus Johnston, 2 Fabio Ongaro, 1 Matias Aguero.
Replacements: 16 Matt Cairns, 17 Cobus Visagie, 18 Kris Chesney, 19 Ben Skirving, 20 Moses Rauluni, 21 Gordon Ross, 22 Chris Wyles.

rugby365.com prediction: This is a very good Sale Sharks team – especially with their shrewd off-season buys – but one cannot write off any team coached by Eddie Jones, even after last week’s loss to Harlequins. This will be a close one, but we’re going to tip the home team – only just.

Saturday, September 13
Bath Rugby v Gloucester Rugby, 14.45 local time (15.45 SA time)
Recreation Ground
Referee: Wayne Barnes

The teams:

Bath Rugby: TBC.

Gloucester Rugby: TBC.

rugby365.com prediction: Logic says – and this is based purely on last week’s results – Bath to win this match. But this is a West Country derby and anything can happen. Still, we’re going with the home team, unless Gloucester can prove that last week’s brain-explosion was a one-off.

Saturday, September 13
Harlequins v Bristol Rugby, 15.00 local time (16.00 SA time)
Twickenham Stoop
Referee: Dave Pearson

The teams:

Harlequins: TBC.

Bristol Rugby: TBC.

rugby365.com prediction: Quins to win – comfortably.

Saturday, September 13
Leicester Tigers v London Irish, 15.00 local time (16.00 SA time)
Welford Road
Referee: Chris White

The teams:

Leicester Tigers: TBC.

London Irish: TBC.

rugby365.com prediction: Tigers have not lost their opening Premiership fixture at Welford Road in 20 seasons of league rugby. Don’t expect that record to be broken this year – Tigers to win with a bonus point if the weather holds up.

Sunday, September 14
London Wasps v Worcester Warriors, 15.00 local time (16.00 SA time)
Adams Park
Referee: Martin Fox

The teams:

London Wasps: TBC.

Worcester Warriors: TBC.

rugby365.com prediction: Wasps to register their first win of the season – but it won’t be a walk in the park against a determined Warriors team.

Sunday, September 14
Newcastle Falcons v Northampton Saints, 15.00 local time (16.00 SA time)
Kingston Park
Referee: Andrew Small

The teams:

Newcastle Falcons: TBC.

Northampton Saints: TBC.

rugby365.com prediction: This is the toughest one of the weekend to call. It is going to be a tough season for Jonny Wilkinson and co. and Northampton (who last won at Kingston Park on March 26, 2006), will continue to keep the heat on them in the early stages of the 2008/09 season. Saints to edge them out… just.

    A woman didn’t come home one night.
    The next morning she told her husband that she had slept over at a friend’s house.
    The man called his wife’s 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it.

  • Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for

    company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and

    asked, “Father, my dog is dead. Could ya’ be saying’ a mass for the poor

    creature?”

    Father Patrick replied, “I’m afraid not; we cannot have services for an

    animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and

    there’s

    no tellin’ what they believe. Maybe they’ll do something for the creature.”

    Muldoon said, “I’ll go right away Father. Do ya ‘think $5,000 is enough to

    donate to them for the service?”

    Father Patrick exclaimed, “Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn’t ya tell

    me the dog was Catholic?

    ensues:

    Man: “I am 92 years old, have a wonderful wife of 70 years, many children,

    grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Yesterday, I picked up two college

    girls, hitchhiking. We went to a motel, where I had s$x with each of them

    three times.”

    Priest: “Are you sorry for your sins?”

    Man: “What sins?”

    Priest: “What kind of a Catholic are you?”

    Man: “I’m Jewish.”

    Priest: “Why are you telling me all this?”

    Man: “I’m 92 years old …. I’m telling everybody!”

  • One night , after a couple had retired for the night, the woman
    became aware that her husband was touching her in a most unusual manner.

    He started by running his hand across her shoulders and the small of
    her back.

    He ran his hand over her breasts, touching them very lightly.

    Then, he proceeded to run his hand gently down her side, sliding his
    hand over her stomach, and then down the other side to a point below her
    waist.

    He continued on, gently feeling her hips, first one side and then the
    other.

    His hand ran further down the outside of her thighs.

    His gentle probing then started up the inside of her left thigh,
    stopped and then returned to do the same to her right thigh.

    By this time the woman was becoming aroused, and she squirmed a
    little to better position herself.

    The man stopped abruptly and rolled over to his side of the bed.

    “Why are you stopping darling?” she whispered.

    He whispered back, ” I found the remote!”

  • A woman goes to her boyfriend’s parents’ house for Christmas dinner.
    This is to be her first time meeting the family and she is very nervous.
    They all sit down and begin eating a fine meal.

    The woman is beginning to feel a little discomfort, thanks to her
    nervousness and the broccoli casserole. The gas pains are almost making
    her eyes water. Left with no other choice, she decides to relieve
    herself a bit and lets out a dainty fart.

    It wasn’t loud, but everyone at the table heard the poof. Before she
    even had a chance to be embarrassed, her boyfriend’s father looked over
    at the dog that had been snoozing under the woman’s chair, and said in a
    rather stern voice, ‘Skippy!’.

    The woman thought, ‘This is great!’ and a big smile came across her
    face.A couple of minutes later, she was beginning to feel the pain
    again. This time, she didn’t even hesitate. She let a much louder and
    longer rrrrrip.

    The father again looked at the dog and yelled, ‘Dammit Skippy!’ Once
    again the woman smiled and thought ‘Yes!’ A few minutes later the woman
    had to let another rip. This time she didn’t even think about it. She
    let a fart rip that rivaled a train whistle blowing.

    Once again, the father looked at the dog with disgust and yelled,
    ‘Dammit Skippy, get away from her, before she sh1ts on you!’

  • A lady walks into a BMW dealership. She browses around, then spots the perfect car – a BMW M3 and walks over to inspect it.

    As she bends to feel the fine leather upholstery, a loud fart escapes her.

    Very embarrassed, she looks around nervously to see if anyone has noticed her little accident and hopes a sales person doesn’t pop up right now. As she turns around, there standing next to her is a salesman. “Good day, Madame. How may we help you today?” Very uncomfortably she asks, “Sir, what is the price of this lovely vehicle?”

    He answers, “Madame, if you farted by just touching it, you are going to k** when you hear the price!

  • Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E and F are the letters used to define bra sizes? If you have wondered why, but couldn’t figure out what the letters stood for… It is about time you became informed:

    A … Almost Boobs
    B … Barely there.
    C … Can’t Complain!
    D … Damn!
    DD… Double damn!
    E … Enormous!

  • There is a little boy and a little girl in the woods. The little girl asked the boy, “What is a penis?” The boy replied, “I don’t know.” At that time he hears his mum calling him for lunch. He goes home and eats his lunch. Then he sees his dad on the couch. He goes up to his dad and ask him, “What is a penis?” The dad whips his out and says to the boy, “This is a penis, as a matter of fact this is the perfect penis.”

    The boy leaves to go find his friend and brings her to the woods. The girl again asks him what a penis is. He whips out his penis and says to her, “This is a penis, and if it was two inches smaller it would be the perfect penis!”

  • Last night my wife and I were sitting in the living room,

    talking about life. In-between, we talked about the
    idea of living or dying.

    I said to her:

    ‘Dear, never let me live in a vegetative state, totally
    dependent on machines and liquids from a bottle.
    If you see me in that state I want you to disconnect
    all the contraptions that are keeping me alive,
    I’d much rather die’.

    Then my wife got up from the sofa with this real look of
    admiration towards me and proceeded to disconnect
    the TV, the Cable, the Dish, the DVD, the Computer,
    the Cell Phone, the iPod, and the Xbox, and then went
    to the fridge and threw away all my beer!!

    *….I ALMOST DIED!!!*

    One day, she went to the butcher and wanted to buy Chicken Legs. She

    didn’t know how to put forward her request, and in Desperation, clucked

    like a chicken And lifted up her skirt to show her Thighs.

    The butcher got the message, and gave her the Chicken legs.

    The next day, she needed to get chicken breasts.

    Again, she didn’t know how to say it, and so she clucked like a Chicken

    And unbuttoned her blouse to show the butcher her breasts!

    The butcher understood again, and gave her some chicken breasts.

    The 3rd day, the poor lady needed to buy sausages.

    Unable to find a way to communicate this,

  • man and a woman meet at a bar one day and are getting along really well. They decide to go back to the woman’s house where they engage in passionate love making.

    Suddenly, just as they are reaching the climax, they hear a noise at the door and the woman says, “Oh God! My husband is home early. Quick, go and hide in the bathroom!”

    The husband comes up into the bedroom and looks at her. “Why are you in bed and naked in the middle of the afternoon?” he asks suspiciously.

    The woman smiles and says sweetly, “Well, I heard you pull up outside, so I thought I would come up here and get ready!”

    “Ah, Ok then,” the husband replies, “but I must use the bathroom first.”

    Before his wife can stop him, he opens the bathroom door and is greeted by the naked man standing there clapping his hands.

    “Who the hell are you!” the husband asks.

    “I’m from the extermination company. Your wife called me in to get rid of the moths you are having trouble with.”

    The husband, almost purple with rage, exclaims, “Then why you are naked!”

    The man then looks down at himself and exclaims, “Those little bastards!”

    The sadist nods, and sighs, “And once you were done with it, i’d torture it until it died.”

  • 1988 VS Today…

    Piet en Jan raak betrokke in ‘n fight by die skool

    ‘n Groot groep seuns vorm rondom die twee, hulle slaan die k#% uit mekaar uit, skud hande en die volgende dag is hulle dik pels.

    Polisie word ontbied en arresteer vir Jan en Piet. Alle selfone met videos van die fight word gekonfiskeer as bewysstukke. Albei word aangekla vir aanranding. Altwee word geskors al het Piet alles begin. Die ouers word ingeroep vir konsultasie en die ander kinders wat die fight gesien het kry trauma berading. Die video van die fight is beskikbaar op YouTube.

    Piet ontstig die klas want hy wil nie stilsit en stilbly nie

    Piet se gat word vuurwarm geslaan. Hy sit nog steeds nie stil nie want sy gat brand te veel, maar hy hou darem sy bek en maak matriek klaar en word ‘n suksesvolle besigheidsman.

    Piet word op Ritalin gesit want hy het een of ander hiperaktiewe neiging. Word ‘n zombie. Word getoets vir ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). Die juffrou sukkel haar gat af. Piet kan nie bybly nie en verlaat skool na Standerd 6.

    Jan gooi ‘n klip en breek ‘n ruit van die buurman se huis.

    Jan se gat brand. Hy moet vir ‘n week lank in die buurman se tuin werk.

    Jan se gat brand. Sy pa word gearresteer vir kindermishandeling. Jan word in pleegsorg geplaas.

    Piet druip Engels op Hoërskool.

    Piet se gat brand. Hy moet Engels ekstra klasse loop. Hy slaag Engels goed in matriek en gaan Universiteit toe

    Die Onderwyser kry die skuld. Piet is getraumatiseer. Sy saak word opgevat deur ‘n plaaslike menseregte groep wat bepaal dat dit rassisties is om Engels ‘n vereiste vak te maak. Dit raak ‘n politieke storie en ‘n saak word aanhangig gemaak teen die skool en die Onderwysdepartement. Engels word van die curriculum afgehaal. Piet slaag matriek goed, maar sny gras vir ‘n lewe want hy kan nie Engels praat.

    Jan vat ‘n klomp klappers, maak ‘n bom daarmee en blaas ‘n miershoop op.

    Jan se gat brand. Die miershoop is in sy moer. Duisende miere dood.

    Die Veiligheidspolisie en Dierebeskermingsgroepe word ingeroep en Jan word aangekla van stedelike terrorisme en dieremishandeling. Sy ouers word dopgehou. Jonger broers en susters word van die huis af weggevat. Hulle rekenaars word gekonfiskeer en Jan se pa word op ‘n lys van terroriste geplaas en hy kan nie verder werk kry nie. Die familie krepeer.

    Piet val sy knie in nerwe gedurende pouse. Sy juffrou vee sy trane af, maak die knie skoon en gee hom ‘n drukkie.

    Piet voel gou beter en tweede pouse hol hy al weer rond.

    Piet se Juffrou word beskuldig dat sy ‘n pedofiel is en verloor haar werk. Sy kry ‘n opgeskorte vonnis. Piet ondergaan terapie vir die volgende vyf jaar. Raak ‘n moffie.

  • A guy goes to the supermarket and notices an attractive woman waving at
    him. She says hello. He’s rather taken aback because he can’t place
    where he knows her from.

    So he says, ‘Do you know me?’ To which she replies, ‘I think you’re the
    father of one of my kids.’ Now his mind travels back to the only time he has ever been
    unfaithful to his wife and says, ‘Are you the stripper from the bachelor party that
    I made love to on the pool table with all my buddies watching while your partner
    whipped my butt with wet celery???’

    She looks into his eyes and says calmly, ‘No, I’m your son’s teacher.’

  • One night , after the couple had retired for the night, the woman became aware that her husband was touching her in a most unusual manner.

    He started by running his hand across her shoulders and the small of her back. He ran his hand over her breasts, touching them very lightly. Then, he proceeded to run his hand gently down her side, sliding his hand over her stomach, and then down the other side to a point below her waist.

    He continued on, gently feeling her hips, first one side and the the other. His hand ran further down the outside of her thighs. His gentle probing then started up the inside of her left thigh, stopped and then returned to do the same to her right thigh.

    By this time the woman was becoming aroused and she squirmed a little to better position herself. The man stopped abruptly and rolled over to his side of the bed.

    “Why are you stopping darling?” she whispered.

    He whispered back, ” I found the remote!”

  • A priest offered a Nun a lift.
    She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.
    The priest nearly had an accident.
    After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.
    The nun said, ‘Father, remember Psalm 129?’
    The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up
    her leg again.
    The nun once again said, ‘Father, remember Psalm 129?’
    The priest apologized ‘Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.’
    Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.
    On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, ‘Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.’
    Moral of the story:
    If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity

  • Gatiep vertel vir die dominee…

    Jy wiet, ek en die oubaas daar bo is tight.

    Hy wiet ek kannie in die aand sien nie, so as ek in die aand opstaan en ek

    gaan toilet toe, daai gaan die lig sommer vanself aan, as ek wegstap, dan

    gaan hy sommer vanself weer af ook.

    Die dominee kan dit skaars glo en vra later vir Meraai of sy enige iets

    van

    die wonderwerke weet.

    Meraai: Watter wonderwerke?

    Dominee: Nee sien, Gatiep vertel my dat die lig sommer vanself aangaan as

    hy

    toilet toe gaan en as hy uitkom gaan dit sommer weer vanself af.

    Meraai: Ai j . i . r . r . e, hy het weer in die yskas g . e . p . i . s!!!

  • A beautiful woman went to the gynecologist. The doctor took one look at the woman and all his professionalism flew out the window. He immediately told her to get undressed. After she disrobed the doctor began to stroke her thigh. While Doing so he asked her, ‘Do you know what I am doing?’ ‘Yes,’ she replied, ‘You are checking for abrasions or dermatological
    abnormalities.’ ‘That’s right,’ said the doctor. He then began to fondle her breasts. ‘Do you know what I am doing now?’he asked. ‘Yes,’ she said, ‘You are checking for lumps which might indicate Breast
    cancer.’ ‘Correct,’ replied the shady doctor. Finally, he mounted his Patient and started having sexual intercourse with her. He asked, ‘Do you know what I am doing now?’ ‘Yes,’ she said, ‘You’re getting herpes: which is why I came here in the first place.’

  • So the first result is in.

    Sale Sharks 18 – Saracens 15

    Seem we have managed to remove ONE of the Saracens supporters from the top 3 and aptly have replaced him with a Shark supporter.

  • Rugby 365′s prediction from above: This will be a close one, but we’re going to tip the home team – only just

    Seems they got it SPOT ON.

    Charlie Hodgson struck deep into injury-time with a classic drop-goal to hand Sale a dramatic victory and condemn Saracens to their second successive Guinness Premiership defeat.

    Well, who said competitions are a waste of time? Allready I know a lot more about English rugby than before, which admittedly is still about zero, but I am sure it can get only better.

    Not having seen any of the games, if I go by the scorelines alone, it would seem that they either still play dull rugby, or they have an higher level of competition than we do. :???:
