A very competitive game with some of cracking tries for England. Winning clearly meant  a lot to the French team - 'unlucky' to Counties for almost pulling it off. One of the posters on here might want to take issue with the RFU report which omits one substitution - all four of the Blackheath contingent played their part.

I did notice that!  Oh well!!  It was great to see so many people either stay around after the main game or make the trip to see the second game.

The missing substitution was Paul Knight of Cinderford who came on for James Doherty ( Wharfedale ) at about the 50 minute mark.
 
As Lurker says it was great that a good number of people stayed especially the french band who certainly added to the atmosphere ( and the noise level). It was a very competative game the result of which was in doubt until the final minutes.
 
 I was especially moved by the minutes silence and black armbands worn by the players in  memory of Peter Hartley. It was a fitting tribute to a true gentleman.

The other was Simon Legg (Blackheath) on for Darren Jacques around 58 mins. 
 
It was great that Twickenham agreed to the silence (normally reserved for Royalty and mass disasters).

In case there is any doubt whatsoever, Simon Legg was another missing substitution in the RFU report, which quite frankly should be more accurate.
 
I also know that at least one hospitality box remained open to enjoy this so-called second match and suspect quite a few others did too, but on the field you would not necessarily hear their cheers over the champagne corks that seemed to be flying all over the place.

I agree that the match details in the RFU report are a disaster Gavin Beasley replacing Luke Collins, I don't think so!!
 
The poor old ref (SRU) no name given, not only did they print Darren Jacques name incorrectly but the PA couldn't pronounce it correctly either. 
 
Also the French centre Rivier had a yellow card early in the game.
 
Did anyone else see the mad monk in the second tier and their antics!!! The Old Farts would have had a heart attack.
 
BTW, the RFU are no nearer sorting out level 3 down for next season, they haven't a clue apparentlyLOL
