I'm more concerned about Dean Richards running the line! Yes I know.

On the subject of potential bias, it's great to see Karl Dickson fast tracking through but he's such a recent former player, I assume he will need to be kept away from Quins games? Even if he's faultlessly unbiased, not sure opposing teams would feel comfortable. Would we?

Is it tempting fate to say he couldn't be any worse than Andrew Jackson?

I think we should ban these announcement from this site. It seems too often to raise blood pressure.

What is O'Grady's background?

The link posted by Heathen, above, gives his background: a barrister, who's work includes representing sportspersons.

As Heathen commented, should know the laws, which is a good starting point!

I see no one lost the Maxwell Keys lottery this week.

Has he got his bronze Duke of Edinburgh this weekend or is he being let loose on international sidelines?

To be fair, and I was a big critic of Maxwell Keys, he has developed a lot.

He is still pretty inexperienced in the big scheme of things and I have hopes that he will become very good. I think player management and rapport comes with experience and you only get that by being out in the middle learning from situations and gaining player respect. After the Northampton game I thought he showed he can learn from errors which is a good thing.

I think Maxwell-Keyes has matured a lot since that night in Northampton, but in answer to the question of where he is, he is reffing the big Rugby international of the weekend...

Belgium vs Brazil
