I couldn't make it today. How did Orr play, particularly in the scrum and what about Safe? Thank you in advance for any replies.

Tries, score, performance, blag, blag, blag . . . .who cares.

All this doesn’t matter.

Where we REALLY need to improve is in our kit selection. Now, I’m not disagreeing that the gopping green strip did seem to instill Hulk-like qualities in our performance and could be impregnated with spinach (not sure if green vegetables are a banded substance but my son things so) but I think we should have been in cherry n white. I think we need to introduce a performance related pay scheme for the Laundry Team as well as allow them to wash in a more expansive and free way. By allowing the Laundry Team to execute ‘heads-up’ washing and wash the laundry they see in front of them should see the availability of the cherry n white strip improve. I think DH needs to secure the services of a world-class domestic goddess to get this aspect of Gloucester’s performance up to scratch; therefore I propose we hire Nigella Lawson. (The Lawson surname has served the club well over the years).

I quite like it, however we were playing at home and it just feels wrong

I sometimes question I’m watching the same guy as them? His kicking from hand is as good as I’ve ever seen from a 10. He nails the corners and that kick to Halaifonua was a thing of beauty. What a player.


I agree, he was outstanding today and has been all season. His confidence is sky high and you can see he's been given free reign to play what's in front of him. The players around him were consistently getting over the gain line yesterday, which give him the platform to execute - that's been a difference to previous seasons. When he struck that cross field kick, it was sublime! I think he's making better decisions than last year too, using and seeing the space that's in front of him. Would Williams get in the side ahead of him at the moment? I'm not sure.

It's a nice problem to have having been without strength in depth at 10 for some time now. The crossfiled kicks won't always come off but they are a supurb option to keep opposition guessing. I thought Mario played well yesterday given only just back from a long lay off - he safely claimed the restarts , tackled and acrried well. He even recovered his fumble and prevented a knock on so again in the 2nd row we now have SID too. On the kit well it's good camoflage, when BTT was taking a conversion across on the shed side I couldn't see him. Fingers crossed for next week and wondering what the selection will be

Orr played really well as did Safe and Galarza - good to see players retuning and others who get their chance to play hit the same levels as the rest of the squad have been doing over previous weeks.
