Re: Stephens deal imminent

Bit unfair on JBG. It's a miracle his injury isn't far worse after that horrendous tackle. Agree. I've been critical of his fitness previously but the challenge on him last week was horrendous and should have been punished. Any player would be out injured after being on the receiving end of that as...

One of a number of games I didn't attend that season due to being based in London. So I began the routine of being close to a radio or TV set from about 4.30 onwards for games like these.
