If you are a Carnegie supporter who happens to be Irish , Scots or Italian then I would guess that it was a bad weekend for you. But what about the rest of you. I was relieved when I saw the Carnegie score, remembering what a distraction the cup was last year.
I did see two belting games of rugby. The Wales- Ireland game was immense - really exciting, even for a neutral observer. I took a lot of pleasure from seeing the Scots humiliated at HQ as well as from the cracking back play on show from England.
Cracking game in lovely weather at Ripon on Sunday morning.
U18 academy playing Wharfedale. Ripon went in at the break 10-27 down but fought back in second half. Game ended with a Ripon player placing the ball over the try line after several phases of intense pressure and some excellent Wharfedale defence. Unfortunately he was pinged for a double movement and the game finished 24-27.
Carnegie out of the Ballache & Injury cup
England thrash the Scots
Not too shabby, all in all. Would've preferred a Ripon win though. Double movement my ar$e!
