    We shall see.

    Take it you didn't see Sheedy vs Malins during this premiership season?

    Between Beaumont, Harrison, Curry, Taylor, Mitchell and Atkinson (and Mallinder) Sale is pretty well represented out there



    Annoying that we have to suffer through Nige, though

    One of the Barbarians was laughably offside there. A good 5m in front of the offside line.

    Defensively too. He’s just so physical.

    I've said it before but Bassett is such a strange player - nothing about him screams top level winger but he scores so many damn tries.
    Really like him.

    Physically aggressive backrowers are the best part of the game, love Harrison too.

    Curry all over Slade, think that's the third time he's caught him just as he got the pass

    Masssive Barbarian knock on ignored...

    I get the game is supposed to be a bit of fun but turning a blind eye to the Barbarians blatantly doing stuff gets annoying.

    It's why I don't like the Barbarians.

    Have them play charity matches, or resign them to the Hong Kong 7s or whatever. These kids are playing for a potential bolter position in the RWC and it's a completely uneven playing field and a referee more interested in bantz than enforcing the laws.

    They'll never do that, though, because it's such a money spinner for the blazers (and the players).

    That’s outstanding. Marchant looks good.

    Good try,

    Dombrandt gets through a lot of work - he reminds me of the Du Preez twins, even looks like them a bit.
