It's Not Cricket

So you line up a potentially match winning penalty and just as you are about to strike the ball there's a shrill blast from the PA System and you miss? There's something wrong in all that ...

Sympathy to Lloyd Evans who missed the kick at Welford Road with Gloucs trailing 26-24.

And we all know that sudden blasts of feedback can emanate from any sound system so there's no doubt it wasn't intended. But if this had been cricket the opposition skipper would have no doubt intervened and requested a new attempt.

But it wasn't it was rugby, and it's just  fortunate it wasn't a vital Premiership or European game.
