Re: Built-in Dishwashers

Zanussi/Electrolux are good. Just be careful of the performance of it. Loads of manufacturers trying to get A+ efficiency ratings are "depowering" their dishwashers so much it can take 4 hours to do a wash. The Eco setting certainly, usually more than 3 hrs.

Kicking aside, there's nothing special about his game anymore. He's a solid starting FB at T14/AP/Pro12 level but won't have any upside and will be expensive to sign. Also won't be available in intnl windows.

Re: So tactics for Poite next week

Poite is much maligned. Very good ref. Managed the Canes game very well. While the crowd weren't happy with some of his decisions, he was right almost the entire game. Always going to be misses and errors by refs, but Poite has the right balance of applying the laws and letting the game flow. Usually.

I believe SOB goes in to dislodge the ball. HE isn't aiming for Naholo's head but Naholo gets driven forward as Sean swings and he hits him. So there's no great intent there at all. That said, he should get a ban because: 1) you can't sanction only intent, you have to sanction outcome 2) Naholo head...
