    [6N] Re: Eddie takes a pop at Nigel

    I stand corrected, 20 matches for Nigel Owens, over 12 years.
    2009 Scotland v Italy (26 - 6)

    Eddie’s 91% is still wrong though, 18.2 games is impossible.

    Well by my calculations he has 78% in the Six Nations. (4 home losses out of 18 games overall)
    Even if I have mistakenly overlooked a game, that still wouldn’t give us 91%. In fact 91% of 18 games...
