Well, Im 38 mins in (on Sky+) and I cant say how much Nigel Owens has impressed me. OK, so there are a few things looking at his positioning, but he’s having an excellent game – in my humble opinion. Bang on with pens – the gimme’s he’s taken and the game is flowing really well. Spot on with the yellow card. No option. Early foul play pen to set the standard. Good stuff.
Leicester score. Where is Owens? Right there. Not bad for someone supposed to be overweight and slow around the park. I might have to see who is fitness advisers are!!
Hope the 2nd half is as good!
UPDATED – it was. Still think he got it spot on. Too often, these big games turn out to be a big disappointment. Glad this one didn’t and we had a match official team adding value to the event. Good stuff!!
