Thoughts of an NPC IX

This is Bill with the "last rites from Pau". We came, we tried we failed. We are now lying in twelfth position and short of a miracle this morning we will not meet our second objective of finishing in the top ten (European Champions Cup qualification).

Yesterday epitomises our championship- in the first match against lowly Latvia we were well beaten 23-7 then in the two difficult matches against Sweden and Iceland we won 17-13 and 24-6. Finishing on a very positive note I would make two points.
- the team performed well against the top teams.
-the two Johns', after an indifferent qualifying series, played brilliantly in the final round robin and at the time of writing this report are lying second overall in the " Butler rankings".
