We had three mid-week RWC games yesterday, which involved several of my man vs beast players.
From the Handsome XV we saw action from: Riordan of Canada (and his team scored a sweet victory over Tonga, which was good to see); Perenise of Samoa (and his team beat Namibia); and Koll of Namibia. All three players were in the starting line-up, so that was six points for the Handsome XV. And Riordan even spilled some blood on his way to victory:
My God, I’ve had to use the term ‘handsome’ in its absolute loosest sense in order to have him in the team…
Anyway, the Unfortunate XV also had three players in action yesterday: Cudmore of Canada; Brown (and his comedy eyebrows) of Scotland); and Dames of Namibia. And all three players were in their teams’ starting line-ups, so that’s three points for the Unfortunate XV.
This means that the score margin hasn’t changed – the scores are now:
Handsome XV: 37
Unfortunate XV: 32
I’m not happy with Barclay, my Handsome XV openside flanker – he wasn’t even on the bench for Scotland yesterday, and missed the opportunity to push the Handsome XV further into the lead.
