  1. Hutcho,
    Looking forward to some tasty clashes this weekend, I had Al Jazeera Sports fully installed with an hour to spare last weekend, so I don’t need to go to the pub!
    Good to see you’re mixing up your team list numbers again. The first few with the 15-9, 1-8 system were getting dull, it will be nice to see 1-15 making a late entry!
    Have a good weekend!
