In quaintly comic english, here is some news regarding Ien Ashcroft-Leigh who will shortly be plying his trade in Burgos, in the Spanish leagues:

"We are pleased to inform you that we have reached an agreement with the English player at Ashcroft-Leigh to add to our first team in dhb, the university of Burgos, starting on 1 September.
Ashcroft-Leigh, born in Berkshire (England) in September 1987, measured 196 CMS, weighs 115 pounds (! - I think they mean kg) and he usually plays second-line being jumper of touches. Comes to bring experience to the team, and to play in the position that leaves the international player for Zimbabwe Jan Ferreira.
Half of the last season played in division of honor in the team of Ordizia, scoring a rehearsal (try?) in the 10 matches in the top flight of rugby Spanish.
Previously played in England in Hong Kong Scottish, Plymouth and Cambridge.
He is expected to reach Burgos on the 3th of August."

Nice guy. As I recall, one of the cooler heads at that end of season do when it all kind of kicked off...



Come cheer up, my lads - 'tis to glory we steer!

The Herald is up to its usual standard of reporting. The article implies it was last season he was so registered, it has not reported that Jack has played for us this season.

He's made a success of being re-called to the Chiefs when they needed him to replace injured players.

Predictable. Sam has often said that Bath want to turn him into a tight head. Not his preferred front row position.
The price of fame, eh?

Henry Slade and Ellis Genge start in the second Pumas tour game; Jack Maunder on the bench. Expect a reaction from the home team after last week's defeat.

And don't forget it's on BBC2 (KO: 20.15).

"What are you doing indoors watching the TV on a day like this when you could be out in the sunshine?"

"But, Mum - England are in the U20s final and Ollie Dawe's on the bench..."
