Coney Hill 10 - Lydney 82

Win the last two games of the season and we could finish in the top half of the table. Incredible turn around after we seemed to be heading for another relegation.

We took a beating at home to the league leaders (and now winners) but the game wasn't as one sided as a 7-56 score suggests, they had a fly-half and centre with bags of pace and just got around us because we didn't have the legs to stop them. If we'd have been a bit more aggressive at the breakdown and stopped them getting quick ball early on I think it could've been a very different game.

Exeter thrashing Leicester 😀

Would love to see them get relegated.

Meanwhile, the Mighty Lyd had another comfortable win. This time 31-7 against Keynsham.

Just one game left in the season, away at Launceston; which I canít see us winning.

Only 26 games in the season, which is a ridiculously low number. We used to play over 40 games each year.



Whilst in some ways Iíve missed going to Villaís away games itís been great to have a season watching more local rugby in person

The one saving grace for Tigers is that newcastle and Worcester both got nothing as well, this was always a tough weekend for all 3.

Next week was always the big one, Tigers away at Falcons whilst Worcester are home to Sale, 2 home wins there and Tigers will be deep in the shit.

If Leicester get relegated I would piss my trousers. Another fine win for Glaws yesterday. This season is on. Going to Worcester away with Charlie for the same price as a Leeds ticket.

Glaws looked very good yesterday, saints will get there but they need a bit longer.

The South African grunt is making a huge difference for Glaws. Getting a bit worried about mounting injuries though.

Get in Glaws! Patched up backs and kids all over the shop. And still get a bonus point win despite being 17 down inside 20 minutes.

The Cipriani pass for Hohneck to score is a thing of beauty, I'll add some highlights for it when they go up tomorrow.

Wayne Barnes was good on co-commentary I should add. Very interesting to have a refs perspective on things.

Hmmm, they've changed the highlights page so linking to individual videos is a bit messy so just a general link - https://www.premiershiprugby.com/videos/match-highlights/

There's some great tries in there and the boos for Billy V are pretty clear. I can't believe Sarries didn't have the sense to leave him out for the week.

Saints beating Quins has left the the battle for the top 4 looking really interesting now.

Doesn't sound as Forest as he should ;)

I'm also hoping that once Nigel hangs up his boots, he'll become a regular commentator
