Close-Run and Runaway Games

I had planned to visit Bath this weekend for their match against Connacht, but circumstances conspired against me, so I didn't get to go in the end. Looks like Bath broke Irish hearts with an injuery-time try to level the scores, and Chris Malone put the conversion away for Bath to take the spoils, 21-19

Meanwhile, in the south of France, Saracens beat Narbonne 37-20, and came away with a bonus point to boot. I wasn't able to attend that either, but I was keeping an eye on the game via the live updates webpage at It was quite fun watching for something to appear on the screen and shouting at my monitor when we scored a try!

Neil de Kock scored two tries, Jackson went over once, and the forwards battered Narbonne into conceding a penalty try. All in all, a good evening! Here's a picture of Neil hounding the opposition scrum, from last week's defeat of Glasgow Rugby.

But not such a good night for poor old Josh Lewsey, who twisted his knee during Wasps' defeat to Perpignan. Let's hope no more of the England boys go down with injuries before Andy Robinson has a chance to pick his team against the next week. I've got tickets, and I'm raring to go!!

'Shouting at my mother when we scored a try' - so many things I could say here, Caz, but I will restrain myself!!! Glad you were having fun.

Was your "mother" for "monitor" typo some sort of Freudian slip, perchance????

Yes, I know, I should get out more! But I am - off to Twickers tomorrow with 82,000 other screaming fans. Fab.

The opening round of Six Nations fixtures certainly didn’t disappoint. We had a tense thriller (Ireland 16 – 11 Italy), a shocking upset (England 19 – 26 Wales) - which must have cost the bookies in Wales a few quid, seen as though the Welsh were massive underdogs and not to mention the Taffies like a bit of Rugby Betting UK. Then there were the brave Scots; who went down 27-6 to France. So many parts of Scotland’s game were working well and all three of the French tries came from schoolboy errors by the Scots... I hope their confidence is still in tact because they actually played really well.
