Castro would have been 2nd in my players of the 6N and is now a nailed on member of a World XV and long may it continue.

As for Dayglo...once a dirty cheat always a dirty cheat.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

Castro's try and celebration was just one of those iconic moments.

Surely some enterprising poster manufacturer is going capture that one.

As for Dayglo, if he did gouge JW then he's going to spend most of the next game worrying about the retribution that may come his way.
Kicks and scrums and ruck and roll.....Is all my brain and body need!

If cited that would end LOL's career. Six months ban!
It would be handy if Dayglo did get a ban, It would help our cause loads. Mind you I dont know what the Refs will do without the constant advice from this .............man!

What a lovable character he is! Great to see his athletic dive and the laughter it evoked in the crowd. Great! No wonder he is such a favourite.

just to cap off this conversation, I have stumbled on a great anagram of his name:

Martin Castrogiovanni = roving antics - a riot, man!
