    The perils of +1

    Couldn't get to Vale today - blame it on it being St. Patrick's Day and I go to St. Patrick's Church - so the wife and I settled down to watch the 6 Nations game between England and Ireland on ITV.

    The game was going on with Ireland in the lead, but England staying in touch, when I decided to go on the Web to see how Vale were getting on. Having done so I followed a link to the 6 Nations, thinking I'd be seeing some comment on some of the more controversial refereeing decisions, only to read 'Ireland win Grand Slam 24-15'. Thinking someone at the BBC had made a huge mistake, maybe making a trial headline live or something, I told the other half. It then slowly dawned that we weren't watching the game live; last night I'd been watching ITV1 +1 and the Sky box had gone there automatically I switched on this afternoon. I hadn't picked up on the time on the clock being out of sync with the game time.

    Cue herself going mad for spoiling the end of the game for her. Assuming I'm not in the spare room tonight I'm sure it'll look a lot better in the morning.

    The bigger peril was probably watching the “egg chasing” in the first place. If you have to watch the oval ball game, at least make it the X111 a side variety, where tries are the order of the day unlike its poorer XV a side version.

    Just to make clear is the peril of +1 referring to the tv channel or the fact that you are married. I know the greater danger in my life!

    When the players have barged into each other, then all jumped on top of each other, then pushed and mauled each other and pulled each others shirts the referee awards a penalty. I just can't figure out which attacking player or incident was the foul.

    As long as you don’t mind the ball being continually kicked into touch and the majority of scores coming from the boot. Why not attempt to score a try now and again ?

    It is class, and the players conduct themselves well. Once the ref explains a call thatís it , over and done with, unlike the whinging moaners in football.

    Yes, 6 in fact which in Union terms is a try fest. But rarely in League would you see LESS than 6. I appreciate that although both codes are rugby, they are basically different sports. Union is about field position, hence the continued boot into the grandstands, whereas as League has no line outs they run the ball more. But at the end of the day, in League the ball is always in play, whereas in Union the ball is either at the bottom of a maul or in the terracing. Personal preference I suppose, but generally speaking people who like Union have never watched League.
