He's Behind You!!

HE'S BEHIND YOU!!
Perhaps, just perhaps, Freddie Burns' spectacular blunder against Toulouse at the weekend (whereby he had the ball dislodged from his grasp in the act of prematurely celebrating a try) might now just see players stop behaving like utter arses when in the act of scoring and actually act like professional sportsmen.

I suspect that Burns - who effectively cost Bath the match - will in future be keen to get the ball to ground as soon as humanly possible and will forego the need to salute, blow kisses or whatever else he thought he was doing. Maybe one or two others (who shall remain nameless) might re-think their behaviour too.

HE'S BEHIND YOU!!
On the subject of questionable behaviour, I can't quite decide whether Maro Itoje mockingly celebrating Glasgow's non-try with the Glasgow players was an act of a total arse or whether it was just bloody funny. I'm leaning towards the latter although I suspect that if I were a Glaswegian I'd probably think otherwise. The one thing for certain is that Itoje looks back to his rumbustious best, which must be a crumb of comfort for Eddie Jones who appears to be witnessing his key players drop like flies on an almost weekly basis.
