Snap on thread starting, you beat me too the "post" button


I can see it now "Why did we play so many phases going nowhere? Why not kick to gain some territory at least".

Also interested in when SHs ceased to be a protected species. Dodgy decision or the start of a new fashion - and about time too.

Goodness how to describe that?

Saints look uninterested as it's into extra time. Tapuai hacks through a loose pass and Banahan runs a line that throws of the Saints defence with a cheeky swing of the hips. Try in the corner. Burns converts!

Score is good but flattering.

Bath head into halftime with the advantage of the only numbers that matter! 16-6.

A few points:

1. This is a terrible game. Both teams are terrible.
2. Even more terrible? The ref.
3. Look. I get it, I really do. I understand the need to balance against the salary cap, I understand that fans don't really get value in a statistical way and I'm pretty sure Mike Ford totally mismanaged this. But holy sheet guys, the Banahan decision looks more and more terrible by the day. Robust, quality, plays everywhere, dedicated, effective, rarely away.
