Aviva Premiership: something exciting happens

The start of Gloucester's Premiership game against Worcester Warriors was delayed when a giant inflatable rugby ball broke one of the crossbars.
The incident happened during the build-up at Kingsholm, minutes before the scheduled 14:00 GMT kick-off.
Ground staff worked quickly to replace the bar but referee JP Doyle decided to put back the start by 30 minutes.
Gloucester won 12-6 for their first home league victory since September, while Worcester are winless in 10.
During the pre-match entertainment, two sets of fans raced from the halfway line to be the first to put their ball over the posts at the Kingsholm Road end of the ground.
But one of the balls somehow managed to push one end of the bar upwards and off its moorings.
With the game due to screened live on BT Sport, Gloucester groundsman Dave Balmer and staff tried to make repairs as quickly as they could.
After nine minutes, an orange tractor drove under the posts for Balmer and a colleague to hitch the bar back into place.

Well at least the fans got some entertainment before the tryless grind of a match.

Well most of them don't really understand fast offloading style of rugby so their brains are unable to keep up with anything other than a bosh fest of fat boys!

They're missing players! Their injury list is up there with the worst I've ever seen.

Again this year? Even with half of Treviso?

Maybe beating lumps out of each other in training isn't such a great idea . . . .

Bath's midfield look impressive.. Wasn't a great match to watch, Saracens went back to cynical play when they couldn't find an answer to Bath's speed.

Exactly! Pleasurable... but why wasn't it Exeter or even LI. Usually when those two play, I'm hoping for a scoreless draw.
