They should have assigned a professional referee, Ben Whitehouse or Nigel Owens from Wales would have been a good choice.

Joke of commentator wrote:"That's played by (pause) the Russian number 7 (who isn't Russian) (pause) that's (pause) the flanker... (pause) name only vaguely resembling some other player on the pitch"


I thought it would forever be impossible for me to want to shut a commentator's head in a car door forever more than Carlton Kirby. Who is this clown?

They say it's just an AUDIO :oops:

Hmm... I think word "Аудио" there appeared later.


Watched 1st half not from the beginning, but seems Enisei underestimated Heidelberger.

They certainly didn't in the 2nd half 24:6 for Enissei after 60 minutes. Forwards simply way better than the HRK. Otto out for head assessment and the tries come in.
By the way it is Heidelberg. Heidelberger simply means Heidelberg's

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

RugbyLiebe, I promise you I always try to write Heidelberg, Heidelberger RK or HRK but... Is it really that important to German speakers not to say Heidelberger alone? I'm surprised by how insistent you are, especially because in Spain we've got quite a few sporting clubs who get called by the gentilic instead of the name of the city: Alavés (Álava), Logroñés (Logroño), Alcoyano (Alcoy)...

Heidelberg closing in with 10 minutes left... 24-20.

BTW, are we sure their first try wasn't preceded by a knock-on/forward pass?

It simply makes no sense in German.
Heidelberger is either a guy from Heidelberg or Heidelberg's. This double meaning is what makes it sound extremely strange at least to me.

1st try I wasn't sure, but I think it was Sebastian Feirrera who juggled it around before he gained total control and scored.

Again an unnecessary kick seals a German team's fortune.
Deserved over the whole game, but very good to see that the HRK is on the same level with Enisei.

OK, understood, will write HRK next time.

At first it seemed so, but needs another angle of view to say for sure.

situation changed after substitutions, at least HRK scrum stopped being demolished all the time.

It IS Ben Whitehouse.


The same Ben Whitehouse who got relentlessly mocked earlier on in the year when commentators left their mics on when it was half time? Among other select phrases 'Whitehouse? More like Ben fucking Shitehouse' was uttered.

I like the Conty Shield, I hope in a little participants' increasing for next season: ten clubs in two pools would be great

I wonder if clubs from french ProD2 would be admitted of if the tournament is expressly reserved to Italy and T2 nations

Do you really think they would accept to take part in a tournament without any kind of benefit (if they get promoted they will take part in Challenge Cup anyway) when their league is 30 weeks long?

It was just a sort of "philosophical" doubt. Just theoretically, they could participate or there's a comma against the participation of clubs from France, England, Scotland...?

This "same Ben Whitehouse" is appointed for both Russia's June tests - as assistant ref for USA - Russia (along with Frank Murphy) , and as the referee for Canada - Russia. :roll:
