Match review from a Nottingham angle

The actual match report was pretty fair to be honest except for criticism of Sarah Cox awarding the first scrum penalty to us.

However why the bitter and twisted first paragraph which is below.

A change at the Mennaye as the only covered terracing at the Newlyn End was condemned as unsafe although used for their previous home games this season. It was not exactly surprising that when their millionaire owner decided to pass that way it was suddenly deemed temporarily safe. In an interesting interview on their site he says their current budget is £1.2 million and in 3 years time will be £2.0 million. Furthermore they are now offering 3 year contracts with no automatic break clauses if a Prem club comes calling. After years of whingeing they have succeeded in getting the Cornish taxpayer to cough for £3.1 million to part fund their new stadium in Truro & are now looking for match funding from the national taxpayer.

Disappointing to read that on the end of a match report, hopefully not the official one from the Nottingham club.
