  2. Congratulations on getting a player with a massive attitude and arrogance problem. He's our 'bad apple' and everyone here is glad that he is on his way, now we can get back to winning games.

  3. Saints fan here you are welcome to him ... The way he respecs the fans and club it should be what compensation saints are going to pay bath to take him off there hands. Good riddance to over-rated rubbish

  4. Great to see you can't even get the name of this "superstar in waiting" right.

    You are more than welcome to him.

  5. He so called played for saints last night played crap for the full game then didnt even thank the fans with the rest of the team. Your signing eastmond + his ego + his attitude (and that stinks). Alot of his team mates cant even stand him. I feel sorry for the loyal bath supporters that are going to be paying the ego trips wages. You can have him tomorrow for f**k all.

    A very pi**ed off st Helens supporter.

  6. Your welcome to Kyle EGOmond, compo for saints??? I think saints should be paying bath to get rid of the little shit.

  7. Kyle "Eastmond" has talent in droves. But unfortunately his arrogance and self important has got in the way of his undoubted talent. Not looking interested and causing disharmony within the team is what he has been providing so far early on in the season.

    You are welcome to him and we look forward to the bloody large cheque we will receive.

    A very proud but disgusted st helens supporter.

  8. Please take him asap. I'll drive him down myself for you, car, bike, train, camel, whatever it takes, and when you get rid of him in 2012, sell him to Wigan so he can screw them up.

  9. Good luck to Eastmond.
    He's a good player and did Saints well whilst he was here.. Think many Saints fans are just annoyed at the disrespect he has shown towards fans the past weeks whilst he's been making his decision. Wishing him all the best in Rugby Union.
    He can and will be replaced.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'll drive him myself. Yet to achieve a thing in the sport, can barely scrape 5 matches together and acts like he is a genuine legend. Good riddance lad, I hope union can at least sort your attitude out if nothing else. Get gone now please.

  11. He is a fucking prick would not pay him in washers

    ReplyDelete
  12. I hope he does go now and saves saints any further problems... He is a judus in every saints supporters eyes

  13. Eastmond not fit to pull on a saints shirt ever again don't want ever to have the misfortune of having to watch him again.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The ego of the boy is unbelievable,, he made a blatant mistake Friday night played crap then stuck two fingers up to the crowd. What a toss pot

    ReplyDelete
  15. Saints fan here,the guy has buckets of talent,but such an ego it's not even funny,he is 21 and has held the club to ransom over his contact twice,at Saints we fully expect him to play 2 years for you then threaten to go to France for more money,if you can get his head right you'll have a world beater,if you don't he upset everyone at your club-there is a reason we didn't fight harder to keep him-good luck

    ReplyDelete
  16. Good riddance.No passion at all.I and thousands of Saints fans will not miss him.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Funny how St Helens fans worshipped this bloke until he decided he wanted to leave to earn more money in a better code.

    Typical whippet shagging, flat cap wearing, bitter northerners!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. As a bitter northerner take him and keep him, we may complain or whinge as you like to say but we love our sport and we respect our players and they respect us. After all WHO IS IT THAT PAYS THE WAGES OF THESE PLAYERS! THEREFORE WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY WHAT WE WISH NOW STICK THAT IN YOUR PIPE AND CHUFF OFF!

  19. ha ha ha
    Gotta love the saints supporter
    BITTER BITTER BITTER BITTER BITTER
    and with Wigan looking like ruling the roost for the next 10yrs what with their top exciting young TALENTS tied down on long contracts its not looking good for your lot.

    Welcome Kyle i hope you enjoy the global acknoledgement you will get from the Union game ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Saints Lover. Your dole money wouldnt keep you and your family in cheap biscuits and fags for a week. You couldnt afford to pay Eastmonds wages for 30 seconds you dunce

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love how all the Rugby League fans are crying into their weak flat Tetleys bitter over this one.

    One code.

    Union.

  22. OOOOOooooohhh its bitter up NORTH!!!

    HA HA HA HA HA

  23. I don't watch a lot of Rugby League. It bores the fuck out of me. There are no line outs, the scrums are uncontested and its just 5 drives and a kick.

    Is this Estmund bloke any good or is he going to be yet another leaguie that will piss off back to Yorkshire when he realises our game is a lot tougher down south?

    ReplyDelete
  24. You're welcome to him.
    Eastmond is egotistic and arrogant.
    After reading the last few posts he should fit in really well down South.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Did you read the first set of posts Great supporters up North

    ReplyDelete
  26. 'I don't watch a lot of Rugby League. It bores the fuck out of me. There are no line outs, the scrums are uncontested and its just 5 drives and a kick.'

    Where as union is just kick,kick,kick,kick, clap...... then a few 'athletes' lie on the ground to get their breath back after watching the ball go back and forth!!!!!
    Suppose we should agree to disagree on the relative merits of our chosen sports.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love reading what the southern tarts have got to say here. A game which we split from, improved the games basics immensely and stole many a talent from. Even now most improvements technically have come from RL coaching and the RFU's current flavour of the month is bloke who Wigan were glad to see the back of ! Like it or not RL keeps producing these blokes and Union will never match the technical ability of RL.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Why is it that no top Union players move to League, whereas a lot of the top League players move to Union... says a lot really.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Dear Bath Supporters
    Rugby League taught you and your great team about how a rugby ball should be used. Remember the cross code challenges? Saw the one at Maine Road and it was quite a challenge for Bath anyway. Oh - and they were the games where Guscott was having his legs waxed and couldn't play/copped out (delete as necessary).
    Saints fans are not bitter, most of us don't drink bitter and we certainly won't be crying into our flat/weak bitter when Eastmond leaves. To worship someone - you have to see them play and watch them produce greatness. The bottom line is Kyle has made something like 45 appearances and in fairness, he hasn't even turned up in most of those.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I appreciate this is supposed to be a link on Mr Eastmond - but has turned into a League vs Union squabble - originally League split to make a more 'watchable' game for the supporter and was turned professional as the southern Union players deemed being paid ungentlmanly - however now that Union is professional and more of a global brand (hence more £££) League I feel has become a pool of potential talent for Union, Union has a lot to thank League for; but the better more all round evolved sport is Union - League is still the same as it always has been, Union is constantly evolving into a better more challenging sport for spectator and and player alike! I feel league are mildly bitter as big names come to union now - where as in the past Johnathan Davies, Scott Quinnel went to league - the tide has turned (other than mental meltdown Gareth Thomas) Union has a future - league only has a past!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The cross code games? circa 1996? A year after Union went (officially) professional?! Ok - you live on that! I don't think the outcome would be quite the same nowadays - England vs England - you wouldn't get insurance purely for scrummaging - Sheridan, Hartley and Cole would seriously injure people! And the backline would show how to use skill and support to run around people rather than YAWN route 1!! You get it organised then we will see!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This has turned into a great debate to sit back and enjoy!

    Of course (as this is my site) I am a Bath Rugby fan and therefore live for Union and dont watch much league.

    All I want to say is that it's great to see so many passinate fans from both league and union! We must agree on at least one thing - Rugby (union and league) is better than 'Poofball'? :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Eastmond is made of biscuits. As a Saints fan I have always wondered why the fuss. He has been massively over-hyped by all in RL, especially those who's job it is to over-hype ie Sky Sports. I have always been underwhelmed by him and his application. He appears to be a little bit too cowardly to be a resounding success in either code. He retreats into his shell in big games yet can bully inferior teams when ahead in the game. Says so much about his character. Genuinely glad to be rid of him.

    League is an evolution of Union with the paying spectator as the driving force for said evolution. Union is moving towards league as rules are introduced to speed play up etc. League coaches, Ashton, Edwards, Lydon et al, have assisted this improvement in speed, skill, movement. The biggest influence is in defence ie Larder. To argue against this is simply pig headed stubbornness. Union is to be credited for moving towards League. Perhaps focus can be given to having the ball in play for more than 20 mins in any given 80! The pressures to make such changes were in League 100 years ago, it is much the same process as Union is going through now.

    The whole debate around being professional is flawed. The vast majority of League players had alternative employment, aside from Wigan, until mid 90s. They were not full time professionals. There is a massive difference in being 'professional' and recieving payment for playing. The massive gap in skill and ability was never down to money or wages.

    ReplyDelete
  34. As a Saints supporter (Rugby League that is!) and a keen watcher and player of both codes I do feel that the length of time Eastmond is taking is indicative of his love of money over his love of the game, when he does eventually appear at Bath after his agent has screwed enough money out of them note all the bling he wears. There is no doubt he fancies himself more as a Premiership footballer than a grafting rugby player and and has the same tolerance level with regards to injuries

    ReplyDelete
  35. There is a lot of history about players who made the switch (in both directions) some made it and some didn't. Karl Price springs to mind - didn't really make it in either code but most likely banked a few bob so good luck to him. Ashton is one of the few good examples of a player who Wigan let go before his contract was up who most likely would put much of his try scoring opportunities to lessons learnt in RL and now using them to the best advantage in RU. Eastmond is getting there but it takes a good while to really make it from just being 'promising' to a key player. I guess Saints supporters, after seeing their saints club invest in this player, taking the first opportunity to bank cash. Doesn't get anyone anywhere to slag of each others game - but what do I know being born and brought up in London and preferring RL. There is room for both - and I just wish both codes would work together to get school kinds interested in any of the oval games and then go to the one that suits their talents best.

    To be honest I would say RL innovates more than RU - perhaps too much - but then again its the simpler game and easier for novices to understand. You can use that last statement to either praise or condemn RL.

    At one Quins RL game last year they reprinted the first programme v Wigan - amazing to see that many of the Wigan players were miners and other manual jobs, you tend to forget those days.

  36. Rugby union is like being constipated, lots of grunting and groaning while nothing happens for hours followed by sheer relief when something finally happens. I hope £astmond chokes on his first pim's at Twickers when Johnny actually runs with the ball. Yawnion is for southern puffs

    ReplyDelete
  37. They think that he's a Jason Robinson clone , but could easily turn out to be a clown .

    ReplyDelete
  38. Just HOW bitter are these whippet shagging northerners that one of their best players has decided to try his hand at REAL rugby??


    Funny as fuck reading some of the whinging bleating comments on here!!

    Just sign yourselves ANOTHER past it Australian to take his place. thats what your code normally does isn't it?

    Union forever.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Would Bath fans not feel bitter if the shoe was on the other foot? Not too bothered that he wants to watch while fat and lanky non athletes lie on the ground as Johnny and Giles kick to one another, that's up to him. However Saints have given time and effort to improve £astmond's game after letting two English scrum-half's go (note to the pimm's drinking prick above English not Aussie) They have developed his game and nurtured him, he has talent but not loyalty you will find this out in time. PS he will never be as good as he thinks he is.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Any Bath fans like to tell me how many foreign players they have? St Helens have two Aussies, three Samoans and a cockney, so unless you've got very few the comment about Aussies isn't quite right is it? In order to keep £astmond Saints released Sean Long, Matty Smith and Jamie Ellis three English halves who they decided weren't as good as the arrogant twat Eastmond. I did try to look on the Bath site but it is as boring as rugby yawnion.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Good luck Bath fans it wont be long before you will regret signing Eastmond, he wont be missed at saints, we have other good young talent coming thru the ranks that will love to take Eastmonds place in the saints team and show more professionalism.If Eastmond had made his decision before the season had started he wouldn't be in the situation now. At saints we have a very good academy set up which is one of the best in rugby league(Eastmond came thru it)i met kyle first when he was in the academy he was a very nice young men, talked to him several time last season his attitude had changed to already the best and done that got the t shirt. I truthfully hope he does well for you and you can teach him some respect. This move will make or break him.

  42. Break a leg Kyle, all the best!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Eastmond has two nicknames that I'm aware of- Biscuit bones and tampon (as in in for 1week out for 3), so I think bath fans might want to temper their excitement. Can't imagine he'll be any less injured with 20 stone union fat bastards landing on him, unless they land on his big fat head!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm no Saints fan, in fact I'm the arch enemy: a Wiganer, but I've got to admit they're bang on the money. Permanently injured, bad attitude, overrated and too big for his size 4 boots.
    Should do ok in Union, standing around doing fuck all for 50 minutes and getting paid a wad for the pleasure will suit him fine.
    Jesus christ rugby union is boring. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. i look forward to the next young league star turning to a union!

    Your just a FEEDER CODE!!!

    (also really didnt need the tampon joke explained)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks Wiganer ill look forward to seeing Tomkins in an England Union shirt once his contracts up at your beloved club!!
    YOU KNOW ITS GONNA HAPPEN

  47. Just sign yourselves ANOTHER past it Australian to take his place. thats what your code normally does isn't it?

    lol, this from a supporter of the club that signed Justin "Class A Drugs r ok!" Harrison.

    To the real Bath fans, good luck with Eastmond, you guys are going to need it.

  48. I thought union types Would need the tampon joke explaining as they all bat for the other side didn't realise there were straight ones

  51. I think it might be worth mentioning at this point that 'tb' over on the RLFans forum is an unfunny pedantic penis with a girlfriend who looks like a Russian shotputter.

    Indeed.

  52. Q. Whats the difference between Rugby League and a bucket of shit?

    A. The bucket

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think we should sign every British league player in the country up to a Union club just to put those Northern fuckwads out of business so we can hear them moaning about it. We don't have to actually USE any of the players, it's just so they can't have them and it will hammer the final nail into the 13 man codes coffin.

    Oh hang on. 97% of RL players are Australian anyway.

    I think we have signed all the British ones up to the best code already.

    XV 4 life.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Not just the British ones either ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  55. So Rugby League should sign a past it Australian to replace Kyle, is this so RU can sign the australian to play for England ha ha Pathetic!!!

    If Yawnion is soo great then why come to RL to get your coaches? Is it because they can show your super players how to pass, tackle and run angles??

    Basically to play rugby!!!

    Yawnion can only dream of producing players like the real code can.

  56. If you northern monkeys think league is so good why haven't you beaten Australia or New Zealand in a series since William the Conquerors days?

  60. Kyle might have left our sport but I'd give him a damned good felching any day of 't week

    ReplyDelete
  61. With him not having to tackle in Union, and rarely getting the chance to run more than a few metres with the ball he will at least have a much longer career in Union.

  62. jb

    have i ever told you i find you incredibly attractive?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've seen Kyle in the showers and I can confirm the rumours about black dudes is definately NOT true. His wanger looks like a button mushroom.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think it's ridiculous how Union and League fans are slagging eachothers sport off! I'm a Union fan, played it all my life, massive Bath supporter, but I've moved up to Leeds and now really enjoy watching League as well! Having gone to Uni in Leeds, I follow the Rhinos in League now as well. They're both utterly superior to Football, I'd watch either over that any day! I'll always prefer Union, but that's because it's what I was brought up on! They're both good games - stop bickering! We'll see with Eastmond - he could be good, could be a massive flop - we all remember Chev Walker! Time will tell!

    ReplyDelete
  65. A Leeds Rhinos glory hunter and you love Union as well, what a knobhead

    ReplyDelete
  66. i think overall you may be going over the top. Regardless or not, yes he is paid to also respect the crowd and behave in an appropriate manner on the field etc and yes whilst he has not always done that obviously he must have some talent for a club wanting to pay so much for him and for saints to keep hold of him for so long . He was their over 7 yrs, they could have got rid of him long ago. Im not saying what he has done as a professional rugby player is right but would he have had this much thrown at him if a) he wasnt looking at signing with another team b) the media makes it worse than it is? I work very closely with Saints and believe me a lot is blown out of proportion . He hasnt broke the law, unlike some players that have and yet they didnt seem to not receive as much stick as Kyle did . We can only wait to see what the future holds, but seriously had he not been a prospect in the game , i dont think he would have got as much back lash as he did, otherwise no1 would give a shit as hed go un noticed to the other code. The fact is, he did have potential

  67. It's awful to look at patients above and below that and see if in some of the issues with Avandia. The uncertainty of the event, is doing his best to make that happen. I knew I was fortunate to have a fashionable session about their healing, and other grooming instruments cleaned and sanitary as well. This bacteria erupts to give you an acne killer breakout. Here in the UK say they have felt depressed as a result.
