Really looking forward to my trip to The Garden.
It has been too many weeks since my last live game.

You mean Nay surely. Well that's worth 10 points to them for starters. :smt009
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

Barnes is bad enough on his own, let's hope he doesn't have his myopic wingman Goodgrief with him.

The most incompetent pensioner I have ever had the misfortune to see stumbling and wheezing along a touchline.

Why oh why do we get Barnes for this fixture time and time again.

Nottingham 1995-2000

A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

The problem is that Barnes tends to run away from handbags or send the wrong person off or any random Tuilagi on the park :smt005 whereas other refs treat it sensibly. If there is going to be handbags - it's in these matches.

Is Callum Clark playing then ? :smt016

Although there is no Ashton/Alex clash to set things off this time, I would not be surprised to see the two hookers taking lumps out of each other at some point !

I just hope the ref does not decide the result for us :smt009

Goodgrief must be one of the only people who can stare at an incident, and yet see and recall something completely different

No ref no game !
Am sure all refs have good and bad days .
Am also sure there is a range of ability within there ranks , but I am sure that Mr Barnes will not let either side lie all over the ball etc.

Do we always lose with Mr Barnes or is that a myths we like to pedal on here ?
If he keeps pinging us on Saturday I won't be looking to blame him . I will be looking closer to home.
