You reckon Kahn needs his leg removed? He's been sh*te but that's harsh.
Was the leg removal not BG Williams? I can't recall. But I expect it was some kind of pervert cannibalistic frog doctor who took one look at BG's vast thigh and thought "I'll have a piece of that from now until Bastille Day 2000." Apparently he had the saw out until AB management came charging in to stop the decapitation from the depraved Latin libertine.

Deeply sick people.
I'm getting globus in mind but thought Catchpole was Meades' work?

Every single breakdown.
He's so slow that he makes Parra look dynamic.
It must be a coaching thing as Lee Dickson does exactly the same thing.

Great. Another injury and our second best player off. f**king hell

You may not know this story, but a French doctor decided to chop BG's leg off after a minor strain injury in 1973.

(I think).

Would have to check my sources but it was only a major intervention that stop the madman going to town in the bowels of Parc de Princes.
New one to me! Will check it out later.

Saints are just so shit at 9 & 10. Hard to believe they scored so little with the all the ball they had in the first half.

Sarries unlikely to concede the lead now.

In a car crash way. Rugby has been utter garbage. The only interest was the schadenfreude possibility of Sarries blowing it.

Nutley and Harrison have been good to watch. The latter surely has to tour with the Saxons.

Brave effort, but Sarries weren't going to be shite all game.

Saints will rue that opening quarter.

Sarries deserved winners in the end.

Very impressed by Harrison for Saints. Don't know much about him but he was real class.

Horrible sort of game to lose- go into it expecting the worse and then fate teases you with the possible unexpected win.

Rather horrible how the shitty piece from Greenwood in the Telegraph re Ashton actually looked quite insightful for the try.

Thought the ref was pretty odd at the breakdown.

And Sky could do with finding all angles on a replay before the TMO/ref makes a decision. They could also do with just going away and leaving rugby alone. Horrible closeups that need wide shots, odd angles on the psts for a kick, and general showing of replays when play is restarting. How they do cricket so well, but have no idea about rugby is a mystery

Barnes and that clown interviewer just get worse, and from a very low starting-point, but at least in the past the camerawork/direction allowed viewing of the flow of the game, That was awful.
