Brooker called up to EPS

as injury cover for mears.

congratulations to him. his form this season has been much improved but the there have been a few dodgy lineouts during the last 2 games (might not be his fault)

can't help but wonder how gray has been overlooked again - if it's just because of his hamstring then fair enough, but if he's seen as being behind brooker in the pecking order then that's odd. Imagine it's the hamstring though

I actually think that the wuss hooker should be congratulated on the best throw in I've ever seen on saturday, where the ball went about half a metre. I'm not sure what happened, I assume he thought the ref had blown up, but he basically just dropped the ball and one of our guys picked it up while the wuss lineout just stood around and watched

Ha, saw that on TV...he started the throw and then tried to stop before he released the ball, and ended up falling somewhere in between smiling smiley

I assume that Gray is discounted due to his injury. It's a shame for him, but i firmly believe his time will come. Great for Brooker though, top top lad and excellent in the loose!

He was complaining all afternoon about clean towels and dirt in his eye so maybe thats the reason...... slippery grip leads to squint throws

On the subject of mears, his kick through for biggs' try was incredible for a 2. sharples was also completely outpaced, though he did have to turn on a heavy pitch. If biggs hadn't scored it should have been penalty try and yellow for sharples for trying to tackle biggs off the ball

Thank you for the reminder of that comedy gold, I had almost forgotten that! It happened near us in fromt of the East stand, it was hilarious - he threw the ball 6ft downwards and 2 feet forwards - I've never seen anything like it.

Only time I have seen something like that was my son's first game at secondary school where the hooker hit his foot with his first line out throw. It was also his last line out throw.

I once threw the ball backwards!

I had it resting, briefly, on the top of my head and when I shaped to take it back to throw it it squirted out behind me. I might have got a bit of stick about that! I hated throwing in. Arms tired from the scrummage and throwing into a (pre-lifting) lineout/melee. It almost never went right!

In my little town
I never meant nothin'
I was just my fathers son
Saving my money
Dreaming of glory
Twitching like a finger
On the trigger of a gun
Leaving nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town

I remember trying to kick the ball and missing - I ended up on my backside. I was a prop at the time!!

I'd forgotten that throw-in! I'll have to watch it again tonight, as I recorded it on the BT Box but not got around to watching it yet. From where I was sat in AD, it was great!(Sm1)

Mate of mine once threw in and the fly half caught it.



(To be fair to him, the wind may have caught it a bit, but it was never going to be straight)

Hopefully Joe Gray will be OK for Saturday as we will need a good front 3 for Glaws game.
