No great fan of Robinson but it could be interesting.

Listened to it on BBC Sounds - worth hearing, heís an interesting young man. Loved the silence which greeted Nick Robinsonís question about his plans for next season.

Robinson wasn't as rude as he normally is - after the silence he did make some sort of 'not Saracens then' remark.

Did anyone listen to the BBC Rugby Union Weekly: Rugby and Race podcast? I particularly thought that that Beno Obama spoke with great clarity of thought and passion whilst Maro spoke with calm authority.

Did those two get lost when visiting the West Country? Both would have been great additions to North London.

Apparently Ollie Thorley's grandfather re-married Maro's aunt, so there's no blood relationship. Is step cousin once removed a thing?

Yes, it is a thing I think - one of those ďrelated but not really relatedĒ situations.
