I recovered sufficiently from Friday's induced stupor to cobble together a bit of a report

I watched the game on TV but was hoping not to have to relive the whole thing again for the full two hours that games seem to take theses days. I wasn't disappointed in that you gave the game about what is was worth, all of ten lines and a minute read. The rest of the article contained your usual gems. The rugby might be boring but your reports are not.

Had Dave not already commented I may not have clicked the link, having the same lack of desire to waste another couple of hours that I'll never get back. Glad that I did, entertaining read as usual, and making something entertaining out of that debacle is no mean feat.

Cheers Major. My favourite Reflink moment was when the Newcastle captain complained about Sale not rolling away from the breakdown. 'They would do if you weren't holding them in,' Mr Jackson retorted, sending him away.

psst if the TMO had have give Byron's try (some would) and the 2 and a half opportunities where it was easier to score, than drop the ball/fumble the pass, we would have been 20+ points up at half time and the 3000 or so that went last Friday would be happy chappies.

On the other hand, if the Budgies had have carried on playing until now, they wouldn't have crossed the try line.

C'est la vie and such is sport etc, etc
