I played loosehead and I was 6 foot 4 back then(no cartilages in lower spine or knees now mean I'm 2 inches shorter lol and they said play sport it's good for you!!) I remember the hooker protesting to the ref once after being done for foot up in the scrum, "ref I can't reach the floor with this ex second row in the scrum" he didn't get away with though the ref did laugh at the sight of him dangling by his arms between two 6 foot plus props and he was about a foot shorter.

Tigers scored more points than in any of their previous 42 league games.
Oof, that's a stark stat...
No, not that one!

Our backline had
11. May
12. Eastmond
13. Tuilagi
14. Thompstone
15. Veainu

We also missed 32 tackles and conceded 5 tries in that game

Even so, 38 doesn't feel like it should be a once every two seasons score to get. Nor should it be predicated upon the sort of game where both defenses go AWOL.
