Couldn't disagree more.
"Off you go young man show us what you can do. By the way we don't trust you or have enough faith in you to take place kicks even though you do it for the Wanderers : Myler ? No actually it's Harry"
Really !!!

I doubt the lad is quite that arrogant! Rightly or wrongly Harry was first choice kicker at the start of the season and has kicked ahead of Francis when he played who was first choice kicker for the Blues so not a great surprise Harry was kicking. And with all due respect playing for the Wanderers is a little different to an away first team outing at Sale. His time will come soon enough

Don't think anyone has mentioned, in the last 3 minutes when the ref came back for a penalty for us just outside the 22m and our team were pleading for the advantage that would have given a 5m lineout.

By coming back for the penalty he gave you the opportunity to take the 3 points or a fairly simple kick to touch for a 5m lineout anyway (albeit on the other side of the pitch).if he had simply played the advantage you wouldn't have had the 3 point option and the way your lineout had been going he perhaps felt you might have wanted that opportunity to level the score.

On the radio Lenny mentioned that the Sale scrum was on average 1 stone per player heavier than ours, but his commentary was that our scrum held up well.
Chris did you see it like that?

The scrum went pretty well to be honest. Sale attacked Mikey whilst we tried, often successfully to drive them up. It was a good battle.

Our scrum was on par and best I have seen this term. Penalties given out with random precision by a ref who was obviously an ex scrum half. Thought Hill added umph when he came on. Think Waller, Hartley, Hill with Courts and Pato in the engine room will help on Friday. Centres and wings were pretty anonymous, personally would have Horne and A.N Other at centre and put Foden at full back who has played well when needed this season

Thanks for your view Robbie/Cransley
Colin (Beano) Deans was very complimentary to Mikey and thinks he brings more to the team than Dyls.

Indeed the scrum went well.
Was interesting when Ford Robinson "had his rest" and Paul Hill came on we won a penalty on their scrum.
