soapinthebath - if I'm thinking of the same incident part of the reason Qera got the charge down is that Classens sent a 4 page letter to Glaws outlining his next move by frantically waving Woodburn down the blindside from standing deep. We could all see what was coming from Bath from the other end of the ground so its no surprise Glaws were ready for it! Its just stupidity - if the chip down the blindside isn't on because the winger is ready for a different play, don't do it, and definitely don't do it by making it totally obvious what you are about to do.

To be fair to Vesty his covering when their prop went charging down towards the big screen certainly saved us a try against, and was very well judged. However as a fullback he simply hasn't got the pace to give him any other option than a hoof upfield, which in turn makes it safe for opponents to kick at him. For all the criticism of Cuthberts mistakes at least he has options.
