Maybe could do with the announcer reminding the crowd to be silent during kicks? Just a suggestion.

As somebody who has been to many away games I can assure you that silence for kicks is pretty rare these days, including Sixways on a Friday night. It is still sacred at Northampton, and the atmosphere that it creates is something you have to experience. I would challenge anybody who doesn't believe in silence for kicks to try a Connacht game at Galway, and dare to even breathe too noisily during a kick. They would receive a very stern lesson in manners from the locals, and that hits the nail on the head, because it is all a matter of good manners. Personally I would be completely in favour of total silence during kicks as it really is something special, but unfortunately it seems to be a tradition that is on the way out.

The players taking the kicks couldn't really give two hoots. It is something for supporters to enjoy, and if people would just give it a try they might actually like it. In the same way that players are supposed to respect the referees, it makes our game somehow better and somewhat special.
