It’s November, which can only mean one thing (well two things)…. the Autumn Internationals are coming, and ‘In the Bin’ is here to discuss it!

Big Story Roundup

It was a news week that started out slower than James Haskell understanding the laws at the breakdown, Piers Francis’ development AND the Willie Le Roux hype-train!

However, as we’re good to you (and things picked up a bit) Andy and Paddy dug out a couple of bits to discuss. No bribes from Samoa were needed to make us do this!

England and Wales take the unorthodox step of a joint scrummage & lineout session. In joyous news, Irishwoman Joy Neville will become the first woman to referee a professional European Professional Club game when she takes charge in Bordeaux on the 15th December.

Well done Rugby, you’ve come a long way

Guinness Pro 14 Review

Glasgow hosted a Leinster side who had beaten them comfortably in the Champions Cup already this season. But, that didn’t MATA one little bit, as Glasgow romped to a bonus point win.

Elsewhere, Munster slayed the Dragons without mercy in Rassie Erasmus’ last game at the helm, & Ulster usurped the Southern Kings in South Africa.

 

Anglo-Welsh Cup

The opening round was all Anglo… & no Welsh, as the Pro 14 continued! The English sides gave us a treat as they channelled their inner Baa Baas – serving up a points bonanza.

Autumn Internationals Selection

We run through the schedule for each Northern Hemisphere team, as they host the likes of New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.

After some of the outrageously good performances at club level, we also hope for ‘a feast for the eyes’ when Fiji take the field.

In the Bin regular features

An absolute stunner for try of the week (and a contender for try of the season). Hard to describe in words, but Andy and Paddy do a great job and as usual, there is plenty of Bin Juice.

LWOR Prediction Time

Andy took the spoils last week, as Paddy went a bit crazy for the Italian sides. So he will look to bounce back, with another round of Anglo-Welsh fixtures and the start of the Autumn Internationals.
