For the first time in a while, I feel this is a game Bath should win. Naturally this means we will lose.
Any Worcester fans know if Mills is injured or just rested?
He is benching at 23 isn’t he?
Mako must spend a goddamn fortune on contact lenses, he loses them every single game
So...Farrell carded on reputation? Don't completely agree with lawro as he jerks to the pictures of Farrell, I felt the arm was swinging and it's Ashton's hands in the way that stopped the impact being worse.
On first view I thought it was barely a penalty, though I'm on a stop-penalising-seatbelt-tackles crusade
I can see why it looked like that, but I still think the impact was limited due to Ashton's hand/arm in the way. Having said that it's already been mentioned that his tackle technique will get him trouble further if he keeps it up.
Aye, that replay they showed a couple of minutes ago showed it a bit better, and also showed why Carley went straight to his pocket, as it was the angle he saw it from
Hmm Farrell being spoken to about the way he speaks to officials...sure that's come up before.
Fair play to Sale, not convinced on all the scrum penalty’s though to use a phrase sale fans will be familiar with ‘the officials are making it up’.
Agree with Ugo completely there. Should have let the quick lineout go and spoken to Sarries after. They could then have had their little chat while wait for the conversion.
Ha, double Curry there getting the rip on Spencer.
How good is Faf, is it too soon to consider Sale title contenders, playoffs come the end of the season.
Well played Sale. Faf, James and Curry (x2) were excellent.
Sam James and Ben Curry 4 England
Can James play 12?
Yup, used to play there when partnered with Addison or Leota, who preferred 13
