A big thank you to Eddie Jones for his time tonight at the Q&A session.

Thanks to the Quinssa team for putting this event on.

And thanks to the young looking chap (showing my age) who compered with aplomb.


Very interesting questions, answers, and anecdotes. I agree with EJ's point about needing to bring the ball into play more as the most successful way to counter the ever increasing size of the players and the corresponding collisions. For those who weren't there, EJ suggested getting the ball in play time up from 35 minutes to 40 minutes to increase fatigue, open up space, and therefore reduce the size and frequency of the impacts.

Although it won't happen, they should reverse the number of subs allowed. That's more of the problem i.e. a team can replace half its pack when they get tired. Go back to 5, meaning you cover prop, hooker, 9 and 10, plus one more.

One of Eddie's theories to keep the ball in play is to have no injury stoppages ,injured players to be taken off for treatment asap and operating a rolling subs policy , using the classic 'prop on one knee' as a time wasting example . he was advocating up to 12 interchanges ( Rugby League style) ,to keep the ball moving and as said above create space through fatigue

The evening was great entertainment packed with amusing thoughts and anecdotes.

EJ was very complimentary about Chris Robshaw , called him a 'glue' player because he sticks to his task without seeking adulation .

Good night out .

An Australian wanting to play more like Rugby League and lessen the impact/importance of Forwards?

Well I never!

I reckon the rolling subs idea is worth looking at.
