Not a great incentive for our game...our players potentially go there, put their heads where it hurts, someone might get a bad injury, we win the game, then two days later we lose the points....

Bath winning but then being stripped of the points would be very on brand for their fortunes over the last year or so

Are we actually calling them impact players? What are they impacting? Brick walls?

Does van Graan think he’s fooling anyone by putting a forward in the 23 shirt? I noticed they did it in Round 1 too. Weird.

We've done it all 3 rounds.
No idea why.

I don't mind 6:2 splits per se, but not as standard - robs you of flexibility, and shows that were si oky not interested in playing rugby this year :(

Nice little dig at Wasps from Walder over Will Haydon-Wood..

“I believe we’ve got a great ethos about doing things the right way, building through our academy and promoting local talent, although yeah, I’ll admit it’s frustrating when you make an offer for a player but you get blown out of the water by clubs who then go on to experience financial difficulty.”

Bath are just so hard to read.
2 phases then kick, until in the opposition 22, then it's pass-and-go with the occasional (accidental) variation of pick-and-go.

Sorry, did I say "hard to read" I meant that I'd expect Tewkesbury 2nd XV to read the play (though obviously, still get blasted back anyway)

Launchbury is carrying alot of weight...and Cokasaniga looked like he was running in treacle there.

Not sure what's taken them so long, but first Wasps try on 22 minutes
