Unlike previous seasons, I shall not be going. I had made that decision before the heart attack happened. I could go. I chose not to.
With today's weather likely to be windy and maybe some showers, kicking will inevitably happen. The question is whether those kicking will adapt to make sure that they do not kick out on the full or over kick to the dead ball zone. Fast and dangerous return runners we do have today. Very high balls are likely to get adrift and so distance rather than height should be the aim. Kicking out to give Tigers a lineout is not such an issue, as long as the ref is on the ball with regard to not straight throws.
I DO hope that our players are intelligent enough to realise all this. But I have my doubts, having watched the English team make such a hash of bad weather tactics last week.
I will be out this afternoon in Leamington, so I will miss the broadcast game as well.
Come on lads. This game defines where we are at as a club.
