If I was Cipriani or Woodward, I'm not sure I'd want to be involved in a bus crash of a tour.

From a glos point of view I dont want either picked for a lost cause and then discarded with a huge loss of confidence that we have to rebuild or even worse suffer a serious injury

Do you think they would agree with your point Robs ?? I very much doubt it as professional sportsmen...….

Would you say "no" to EJ if you were in their positions ??

A stupid and selfish attitude IMHO

Did I say it would be THEIR point of view ? Of course it wouldnt be, I said from Glos' point of view, A we dont want them picked and then discarded after playing in a poor team and being blamed for maybe a couple of mistakes? Remember it has happened before to Charlie Shaples and Allen who were selected and dumped, it did harm to their confidence which nose dived and it took a long time to get it back and play well for us again. Cips is old enough for it to wash over him hopefully but not sure Woodward would take it so easily. B we dont want them injured either, .

Sorry if you think that either is a stupid and selfish attitude as a fan, we arent all blessed with your superior thought processes, perhaps it would be better if all those who have a different opinion to the wise and gifted kept those views to themselves, mind it might be a tad quiet on shedweb, IMHO of course :roll:

I would have thought Glos would want them to play and come through unscathed

Rugby (training and playing) is a contact sport where injuries can and do occur.

I suppose, as a GRFC supporter, you would consider it fine if their injuries occurred at Hartpury or in a GRFC shirt ??

Take off your parochial CG blinkers and consider it from their greater perspective as professional sportsmen...……...and consider the related kudos GRFC receive from having players in International shirts.

Financially it’s also good if Woodward plays isn’t it? Or is the fact he made the tour enough?

Do you know I never knew rugby was a contact sport,how many times have we had players crocked while on international duty? Injuries are bad and its make no difference where they occur, as for Kudos well Cips hasnt even pulled on a glos shirt yet so that hardly applies to him and IMO the only kudos from playing for any country is from the supporters of the club, I dont look at any international side and look to see who they play for but of course if we have glos players in any international team that is good for our supporters but in reality it means little .
I support Glos first, England second and have done in the 50 years I have been going to KIngsholm,I have no problem with anyone who doesnt agree with that, do I want our players to play for their country and do well of course I do but not to their long term detriment, as has happened before and under the current regime likely to again,
