@141I'm sure it has been researched,using the same analytic tools that showed Durban to be suitable for J'burg.
@140 So you have obviously seen this somewhere.or at least have some evidence that England keep saying they are 'the best'. Care to share with us where it is?
Humidity and temp very similar in Treviso in July to Japan in September....people don’t genuinely believe this hasn’t been researched by the England rugby camp do they??!
Sometimes in life you just feel you need to say something when England just keep saying their are the best and it is time to say that not one England player would be good enough to wear the red jersey of Wales.
@133 they do yes but across 3 continents, agreed with UKKiwi01 - SH players are more accustom to travel and conditions.@129 when was the last 6 nations game played in fog or snow? Just curious
@136 But how often does that actually happen? Much more likely is that teams do mini-tours when they go on away trips, playing all the sides in one country.Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the jet lag is more than a drive over to Cardiff from Newport, but there you go.
@136. Well that put me in my place then. Can't beat that I'm afraid, unless I mention the Lions tour. Not that often though. It knackers our players all the same.
@129. RU32,You prove my point, an hour flight to Europe isn't the same as playing in Argentina one weekend & South Africa on the high veld the next or our Super Rugby teams who play in Japan, Aus, NZ, SA, Arg each weekend. Our players are much more accustomed to long travel, jetlag, recovery, changing conditions, altitude and being away for longer periods. Not a criticism, just an observation.
Eddie likes Italian food. Nothing else makes sense.
I hope in the picture that they are not practicing our response to the Haka!
@131 Weekly? I thought that in SupRug they played more than 1 game in each country (except Argentina of course!)?
@130 Anglophone "There's the jet lag component too. Going to Japan for a weeks training would poleaxe half the squad for several days in both directions."They could always stay on GMT for the duration?
@130. Posted by AnglophoneAw bless their little cotton socks, spare a thought for the SH players who ply their trade by jumbo jet on a weekly basis though men and boys so I see your point...@123. Posted by isot1"Rugby World Cup is there for the taking, this is the squad capable of bringing it home"Don't be silly...
