This cruel country has driven me down, teased me and lied.
I've only sad stories to tell to this town
My dreams have withered and died.

Nice to see the action, including circus skills from Barry,although no replays of our tries.
Followed by an interview with French International Fabien Poulous.
Q1. What was the biggest difference between this week and last week.
A. We scored more points and didn't concede as many. Formidable.

Don't know where your signal went, Mr Dean, but I saw our tries, their tries, everyone's tries - and fantastic they were too.

Incredible speed of hands by all incl us. However what really strikes me is the backing up by Toulouse, with players re-joining the movement and having more than one part to play in it.

Well done on finding that DP. I did indeed see our tries and was very inpressed by the passing out of tackles by Toulouse. I now see what everyone was talking about in respect of the improvement.

MrDean had done the ground work on the craic: http://www.sportnetwork.net/boards/read ... 250&sid=97

I would have liked to have seen the incident on the Toulouse line with the sin-binning, but two minutes of highlights for free isn't to be sniffed at.

Truly memorable. If this is our ambition and we bring it off, we are going to be compelling watching soon.

Was that Topsy falling off the tackle on our Right Wing?

If it was, no wonder that the lad's been rested and Shabbo given a run -the way Mark Jones stood up Topsy at the Madstad looked similarly worrying, altho' I read that he was also injured.

France 2's rugby coverage reminds me more of Sky than BBC.

As for the presenter's Teddy-Boy jacket - suits you Sir... :lol:
