the main talking point was the reffing of these games- nothing new there then. No major refs were allowed to adjudicate so "old" refs were used - think Brian Campsall reffing now. This led to the other game that season in Swansea being reffed by Mr Bullard- so off the pace substitue an O for the U- that he had to ask touch judges what had happened at times, as he hadn't seen it. No TMOs then, so no GH to make it up as he went along, though the difference between interpretations between English and Welsh refs then was just as bad in some people's minds.

I remember that the ref was particularly bad for the Cardiff game. He let a lot go, especially foul play from the Cardiff team, and the Saracens management were incensed. I thought that we were worth a decent lead in the first half, but for the ref, but fell away in the second half.
