Hi all, for information the forum has been down for the last few days due to Bots spamming the forum which used all the bandwidth. It has now been reset by the hosting provider.

I am 'hoping' that the forum is now being left alone, after being hammered it now appears that access has dropped back to normal levels.

A terrifying prospect that bots could do that. Can any of them play Rugby do you think?
