    The contrast with Fitzgerald, a similarly skillful and quick player, is interesting. Fitz has had so many injury problems and is so keen to make an impact when he does get on the field that he frequently fluffs opportunities that a player of his ability should nail. He seems to stuggle to relax and just let his pace and skills do the work.

    Zeebs looks like a player in the zone at the moment. Just at ease with himself and the game. I hope he can preserve that mentality.
    It was Zebre not Toulon. That's the caveat I'd throw in there.

    I was roughly in line with it and thought it was gone, he did exceptionally well to control the ball and catch it without really breaking his stride.

    Me too, I was delighted to see the highlights clip was 3 minutes long and then nearly half was a Sky ad! I see Sky did the highlights clips this weekend (not just their Sat games) so that is probably a commercial decision but I preferred the Rabo style of putting out clips during the game and then the longer highlights package by the end of the weekend.

    And ROM's, disappointed with the "highlights" package

    What struck me was: straighten, draw, give. On all four back tries. Zebo had a lovely bit of footwork with no discernible loss of speed to stand up and then round the last man for his first, but still in good space by Smith; Dinny12 stepped on, drew, gave, AND hit the last man for his second, to give a dot-down; third was a nice take; and Zebo's step in, draw, pass to put Smith over was lovely.

    Basic, but none the worse for that!
    I was thinking the very same - simple but effective.

    Be careful what you wish for, for it might just come true.

    TOD looked like he was wading through quicksand after 60 mins. Absolutely bollixed.
