    I had the pleasure of Mr Sheasby as a coach at Marlow. A certain assessor of this parish was in attendance )

    Also had Dave Hilton who, in the chat in the bar after the match, said that I should have penalised the opposition loose head for shenanigans; to which I reminded him of his intention pedigree - albeit the other side of the scrum - and that he had coped admirably. We agreed on crux of the issue and he took it in good light.

    There are a couple more, but those are the two who remain in the memory for vasty different reasons.

    Zak Feaunati.

    Wasn't sure it was the best time to tell him his autograph was on a shirt on my wall.

    But that didn't stop me.

    When I did my "scrum factory" course, Hilts ran it. His opening line "don't get to concerned about "the dark arts, sometime you end up with your face in the mud and you have no idea how it happened"
