We have been uploading some old games from 2004-05 season to keep us sane during isolation and thought some of you guys might want to watch all over again, see if you recognize the players from back then.

Hard to miss tofty.

PS It's 14 years ago, but how much more fluid was the game. Especially when it came to rucks. None of those infernal camel trains. Ball back, pick up the ball, pass the ball in a couple of seconds.

Thanks JP, a nice idea - you could have picked a better game for us...

FWIW here is our match report.

For me, the "virus" that lost us first-teamers was also being suffered by those on the pitch (and those in the stands) and was more down to the previous night's festivities than any micro-organisms.

I'm fairly sure this was the time LISC took two coaches and I was point-of-contact for the little one... which broke down on the way home. It was, at the time, utterly awful but in hindsight, hilarious. While broken-down at the side of the road my brother went off across a "path" to have a pee only to discover the "path" was a ditch about 8 feet deep (it was very dark). I was really worried he'd be badly hurt as I rolled about laughing uncontrollably... he was, and is, fine.

Happy days.

I have a DVD of the Wasps v LI match on 30 April 2006, but no means of transferring it. Anybody with the means to upload it want it?

This was a cracking good match that LI won handsomely, with Mike Catt at his majestic best. Unfortunately there is sound but no commentary.

There is a youtube account called MottiRugby that has tries from most of our recent Premiership seasons (going back to about 2005). Sadly one of the seasons missing is the 08/09 one.

If you look in the "London Irish Tries" playlist, there are the tries form the Powergen Final, as well as many other ones, enjoy!
