I've just remembered that I've still got my issue Poncho in the garage, so may well bring it as well.
It's sitting on a shelf beside another poncho, my issue arctic gronk bag, and for some strange reason, my 58 webbing (sans large pack)
So the defeat last week was all the fault of Chris Robshaw, and the 20 year old lock the little shit would not give another 4 minutes to (thus giving the lad the dignity of getting to half time on his debut).
Oh, and Piers Fletcher-Dervish
Ireland ahead by 2 at half time. Good match so far. I have to say after watching 1 1/2 matches this morning, both with southern hemisphere refs, some of the interpretations of the breakdown are errr...interesting.
I'm not having a dig, but certainly a few calls have been interesting re first tackler not releasing and blocking, plus a few guys either not staying on their feet or being deliberately knocked off their feet in the rucks.
I know historically the SH refs are more prone to letting the game flow (not a bad thing at all) but the home sides backrows are certainly getting the benefit of the doubt.
