I just couldn't concentrate on Saturday as the game was a pretty forward orientated struggle....but it looked much better when I watched the TV recording back on sunday.
Anyone else feel the same?.....the forwards were all heroes and tried to play some rugby in very poor conditions plus you could see in greater detail why there were so many handling errors that just seemed from the stands like poor control.
Will Skinner, Luke, Minty plus all the other forwards were really putting in a heavy shift and all stayed on for the full 80+ minutes....brilliant
Fully agree. We intended to skip through the recording yesterday to see a few things like Mike Brown's "try" and George's tackle on Benjamin but ended up watching the whole game again and thinking how much better it was than what we "saw" on Saturday. I think the commentary helped as they were positive throughout.
It turned out to be an afternoon of rugby again, as we watched the Saracens game afterwards and ended up feeling even better about our 4 points on Saturday.
I have spoken to 2 people who watched the game on TV and they both said how much they enjoyed the match - certainly not how I saw things at The Stoop, left the ground feeling very disappointed, almost wished that I had stayed at home.
Funny how we see it this way when we are top of the league is'nt it! Worcester would bite our hands off to be in this position! Right now for the Sky+ & watch the replay! I'm sure that rolling maul will never be as good on TV!
I watched it after recording as well and thought the game was much more exciting and showed Quins mental and physical strength more than it did being at the Stoop. Joe Marler put in a great poerformance (which probably explains why he was man of the match). I feel much more positive about the game after seeing it all the way through again
Can anyone who has seen it on TV explain the penalty that wasn't? Fairly late in the second half would have put us 19-14 up kicked from near the left (East stand) touchline. From where we were sitting in the East Stand above the halfway line everyone thought it had gone through the posts and above the bar but Rose seemed to rule it out. Any insight as to what happened (e.g was it short) would be greatly appreciated.
