Good to see Barnesey on Rugby Tonight.

Hes up there with Nige in terms of ability to explain refereeing. With the added bonus on sounding a bit like me :)

Good game tonight between Sale and Quins, there's been a few mistakes that have stopped it being a classic but it's still great to watch.


Quirke is a great talent, he's the player the press have been trying to pretend Ben Youngs is for years, quick and strong around the fringes (Youngs does this bit well) and always looking for a gap but also gets the ball out quickly and accurately and sees runs early (all of this is what lets Yougns down and makes us so slow at recycling the ball).


I don't think I'd have him in the England squad for the Autumn though, give him a few more months and then bring him in for the 6N so some of the other inexperienced 9s can get some experience.

Went to Sandy Park yesterday for the Chiefs Irish game, have to say Irish were very good, the opening 10 minutes of each half they blew Exeter away and did the simple things really well all game.

Irish have done exactly the right thing over the 2 years of no relegation and taken last and this as a free hit to bring through youth players, buuild out the squad and develop a play style. Given the difference is resources between them and most of the rest it's been very impressive.
