This won’t be anything more than a short post I’m afraid. The score is there for all to see. We got hammered. It is not for me to diagnose why we lost so badly. All I can give is an apology to everyone that tuned in to watch or travelled with us.

But as with every knock we’ve ever taken, it hasn’t killed us. We showed last season that we can take knocks and still get up and fight back. So that’s what we’ll do. We owe it to a few extremely important people.
