    I've always assumed they were just gathering themselves and focussing. Like throwing in at a line out, the toughest thing about executing the skill is the switch from the intensity of open play to...

    Aziz was Saddam's foreign minister, so quite well known in the west as it was usually him popping up to defend the regime or talking to Kofi Anan at the UN.

    Who'd have thought that we'd **** the...

    I'm just amazed that they're all still alive. As this thing unbundles, you'd be on a fair bet that someone was going to have an unexpected heart attack/car crash/yachting accident.

    Bit of a weird place, obviously, but good for the family and a bit of a learning experience. The place is an exercise in collective delusion, like, and it has its frustrations but it's an interesting...

    I remember him years ago turning out for Newton Abbot in Devon and playing for their 2's because someone asked him in a cafe. He wore the club socks with the Baa Baas the week after.

    Depends on what you mean by fit. Some of the discussions around Ryan's injury have suggested that his problem is pretty explicitly with scrummaging. Don't know how much there is in that, but it would...

    It's true in any job anywhere that you get further if you surround yourself with people more talented than yourself.

    I thought he was a good coach, but there were plenty of people on the "he's only coached at NPC" bus when he was announced.

    He'd done age grade international and an NPC side.

    I'm not sure about the notion that physicality was our issue. Glasgow did a very good job of shifting the ball away from the point of contact and not getting dragged into an arm wrestle with us.
