COMETH THE HOUR, COMETH THE MAN, no doubt about it Cornwall’s very own Raging Bull did the buisness at Newlands on Saturday as he captained the British and Irish Lions to an important win over Western Province, just a week before the first test against the Springboks. If Phil Vickery isn’t wearing the No. 3 shirt next week there will be another Cornish uprising that’s for sure!!
Phil’s gone about his buisness in his usual calm manner and has peaked at the right time to stake his claim to be in the starting XV. The lions are comming to the boil just at the right time, next Saturday’s test match is sure to be a cracker.
Well done to Peter Joyce and Owen Hambly who both had a fine tour with England Counties to South Korea and Japan as the Counties won all three matches.
Last Saturday night I watched a great final in the French Top 14 as Perpignan won the famous Bouclier de Brennus for the first time since 1955, beating poor old Clermont Auvergne, once again the bridesmaid as they lost their 10th final!
A famous win for the French today as they beat the New Zealand All Blacks in Dunedin in the 1st test.
