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
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.
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!
So the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're goin' through
Turn and face the strange
Don't tell them to grow up and out of it
Turn and face the strange
Where's your shame
You've left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me
But you can't trace time
