Being non-political Both cardinals in Armagh are primates of all Ireland, not just the North, so they shouldn’t be recognising the border. And the arse-licking from Eamonn Martin in particular is sickening.

Does that mean they should boycott any event associated with the 26 county state?

Eight Premier League players will be stopped from playing for their clubs this weekend after Brazilian football authorities triggered a Fifa rule to prevent them appearing. Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United and Leeds United will all be affected. Players not released for an international window can be banned for five days after the window ends under the Fifa regulations. The decision covers 10-14 September.

Brazil invoked the bans after the Premier League stopped players from appearing for their country if it meant travel to red list countries.
Players travelling to red list countries would have had to miss several games on their return because of the 10-day isolation period required under UK rules.

In addition to missing their sides' weekend games, Chelsea defender Thiago Silva and Manchester United midfielder Fred will also not be allowed to play in their teams' opening Champions League games against Zenit St Petersburg and Young Boys next Tuesday. However, it is understood Brazil have not asked for Everton forward Richarlison to be prevented from featuring against Burnley on Monday. It is felt Brazil showed leniency in that specific case as Everton allowed Richarlison to play at the Olympic Games when the regulations did not force them to.

The move also affects three Liverpool players, Roberto Firmino, Fabinho and Alisson;

12 a side auction based franchise rugby anyone?

Plans have been unveiled for a new 12-a-side rugby competition proposed to take place in England next August. The new tournament, World 12s, is intended to feature 192 of the world's best players, picked via auction to represent eight franchises. World 12s Limited says the competition will take place over three weekends in a round-robin format before knockouts.

"World 12s is a natural evolution for rugby union," said the organisation's chairman, Ian Ritchie. "We feel that this is a game for our changing, fast-paced world that can excite a global fanbase in the way that we have seen with the IPL [Indian Premier League] or most recently The Hundred in cricket."

Ritchie, formerly chief executive of the Rugby Football Union, is joined on World 12's board by former Welsh Rugby Union chairman Gareth Davies and former New Zealand Rugby Union chief executive Steve Tew...

Q. What is the difference between 12s and 15s?
World 12s will follow the current Laws of 15s, but with a few exciting adaptations:

    12 players in a team – six forwards and six backs
    15-minute halves
    Conversions will be drop goals only
    Only one scrum reset, followed by a free-kick
    Scrum infringements are penalised by a differential penalty (a penalty that cannot be kicked at goal)
    In the knockout stages, if matches are tied at full time, a golden point will decide the winner

Would Sunday evening/night suit ok for the A?

Still waiting on Savage Bears for the B League

Sunday evening doesn't suit the Clowns unfortunately as i have another league drafting that night which also includes the Jets and Troy PolaMayo so that would knock 3 of us out..

Disallowing goals if you take your shirt off would soon stop it.

Agree. If he'd left after barca/spurs goals he wouldve left a hero now each year its more apparent he doesnt overly want to play first team football and is happy benchwarmin for a big team and the ££

I had hoped after those goals he would get more time in the starting line-up, becoming the fourth forward along with the big 3.

Ok, I’ll play along, one last time.

1. WHAT exactly should Biden be doing, in your opinion, on Covid that he’s not doing? You want to see federally mandated vaccinations? You want to see federally mandated lockdowns? Should he be down there in Florida and New Orleans kicking people out of clubs and bars? Should he make everyone take doses of Ivermectin with their corn flakes?

2. Spell out what the “cover up” is about January 6? And what exactly that has to do with the suspect’s counter allegations in the Michigan governor’s case? Give us your theory of how the FBI, presumably, manipulated and entrapped all those people to run riot in the Capitol after going there at Trump’s behest.

3. Go ahead and give us some details on Biden and how his “cognitive decline” is responsible for what’s going on in Afghanistan, as opposed to poor planning and intelligence, political blinders, wishful thinking and maybe simple bureaucratic incompetence.

You must be new here.

In Rugby they now crack down very hard on any contact above the shoulder, football should do the same.

If you make contact with the head or neck of an opponent you should be sent off.
