For anyone who wants rid of Chris, have a look at the difference between yesterday and the matches when he was absent. We went forward at pace for a change! In fact look at the scrum at the end when he was not on the pitch for an instant difference. What a player, I really hope he stays with us cos without him we are just not as good.
Also a mention for Losi, it takes at least 2 and usually 3 players to stop him after he has made 20 yards. Whenever someone tells me so and so is a great winger, I think of Losi and none of them come up to his standard. Truly world class and a tonic for us all to have on the pitch (including the other players).
I left with a smile yesterday even though gutted by the result.
We agree Jamo, there is hope for us yet!
Since the end of the season is near we sought evidence about the Player’s plans for playing during the next 5 weeks. We were informed that he is due to play for the England U20 7’s team over the next weekend, the Aviva Premiership final on 28 May (or England v Barbarians on 29 May if not selected for Leicester) and for England Saxons in the Churchill Cup on 4, 11 and 18 June. We are therefore satisfied that the suspension may be served without any break as he will miss five meaningful matches. For so young a player this is significant, particularly as this would have provided him with the opportunity to stake a claim for the England RWC11 squad – an opportunity which he might now miss.
