Ulster colomiers on now on bbc2! As a total aside Ulster show the value of the drop goal and makes me think it’s being under-used nowadays. Humphreys was outstanding at them in that season, and Ulster used them an unusual amount in the knockout of that campaign; but I look at Saracens now and how they defend and think - like collect the 3, get the kick off and go again. Anyway it’s near over now, but a thrill to put on and see.

south Africa vs England in the 1999 world cup is a great example of drop goals being used to effect

Not sure if you can get it in Ireland but s4c put on a charity game between a barry john xv and a carwyn james xv the other night

Loads of lions playing , not just the welsh lads but hillier , duckham , spencer, mighty mouse and brown (rip)

The game is a bit of a throw about but john absolutely gasses phil Bennett for a try and that takes some doing

It does appear there are re-runs at 10am. Slightly more sensible times!

Had a look at a few Chiefs clips on YouTube in anticipation of this Aoteroa tournament, we could be in for a belter if the stadiums are full.

And James Lowe was an absolute coup for us
