Thanks, a very readable summation of a good afternoon. Although some writers elsewhere thought that the referee was one-eyed in favour of Sarries, others might argue that his leniency in handling the Chiefs' seven, or was it eight, infringements within their red zone, in the space of a dozen minutes, was somewhat one-eyed in the other direction; many would have expected the referee to go hand in pocket before the end of that period. However, he managed a fast, flowing game in a way that led to widespread appreciation of the overall experience for those watching.

Thank you, Innings, Iím delighted you enjoyed it. It was a nice game to write about. I did feel that the ref was pretty lenient with Chiefs, letting things go without a card after two warnings (I think it was seven infringements) and did originally make the point in my report to that effect but concluded that in the context and spirit of an entertaining match with a ref that as you rightly say let the game flow, and Sarries were well ahead, it was enough to make brief reference to the three conversations heíd had within a short spell. I think Adam Lealís going to have a good career.

Cheers Jonny, good to have you on board.

The reason for asking for articles to be published on the front page is that Sportnetwork raise advertising revenue based on front page hits, but not from messsgeboard visits.

They then pay a small percentage to the sites driving the revenue. We have mandated that all the revenue goes to the Sarries Foundation. So you won't get rich, I am afraid!

Obviously, the advertising revenue is low in these epidemic times.

Have we raised anything since 31 October 2018?!

I need to chase up the Sportnetwork office. Either their emails to me go astray, or they forget - their accounts clerks change quite frequently!
