Have your say

On Wednesday night I watched the match and was proud of the performance of our team.

 They went on that field imbued with the spirit and determination of Battle of Britain pilots and Dunkirk small boat men.

 All fourteen deserve a mark of ten. No-one shirked his responsibilities. The referee deserves much credit recognising the importance of the result to both teams. He knew there would be very robust tackling and made allowances.

 I congratulate both teams for an edge-of-the-seat display which came with the right result.
