Was that an injury at the end of the half then? Bottom corner of the screen. Maybe Rankin. Arm or shoulder.

Entertaining enough stuff overall.

There’s some footage of the lads training for today’s game against the senior players. Rob Lyttle was involved which is good news. McCann was looking lively.

The thread I started is on page 2 but you’re forgiven! Mostly read cricket books during lockdown, especially those by or linked to Peter Roebuck which were fascinating in the light of what happened to him.

My lip-reading needs work, but I think I made out “back row” and “grupper kick”.

Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?
