A public apology to @TeaCider24 A little while ago, during the Rotherham match, I made a comment essentially in reply to TeaCider24.  The comment, full of sarcasm as so many of my posts are, impl

We can hug but avoid face to face contact 🤷‍♂️  Think I’ve found a solution buddy

In other news, Murray Walker has died. I lost interest in F1 many years ago, but I loved it in the 90s and he was central to my enjoyment. Brilliant commentator, lovely guy, sad loss to the world of sport and journalism.

I was never a huge fan of F1 but most F1 memories I have are from his commentary. He was the voice of F1 in the same way Bill Mclaren was the voice of rugby and Peter O'Sullevan horse racing.

England hold on huge performance today, France's Grand Slam is dead. Really hope France can beat Wales. As Wales winning a Grand slam this year will genuinely be the most flukey Grand Slams ever! 

Its a shame England discipline has been quite costly this year although injuries and the odd referee call haven't helped. It was a good win today though. Itoje had a great game today.

Wales always seem to have a knack for performing in a Lions year.

Very sad news.

Came across as a thoroughly lovely, genuine bloke...probably also the biggest F1 ever. He was the voice of F1 for decades. His enthusiasm came across clearly in his commentary and he was probably responsible for me becoming a fan.

A real nail-biter that one. I really didn't think England would pull it back.

Was rather frustrated we kicked possession away so much, but once it got down to the wire, England just kept the ball, phase after phase and did what they do so well.

Another example of good video refereeing for Itoje's try. 🎥 📺🏉

Yeah discipline (or lack of) killed us against Wales and Scotland. Itoje was good today, but he hasn't been at his best this tournament, but you could say that for a lot of the team.

With Gatland in charge of the Lions half the Welsh lads know their plan seat is booked already! 😂

I was more worried in the first half than the second as I thought France would score more than they did. Luckily we stayed with them points wise. But second half England were very dominant, got into a lot of good positions but couldn't convert. I always thought we'd score, but wasn't expecting it to be as late as it was in the end.

The kicking game today was very good from us, most of the time today it was all about manufacturing territory from relatively poor positions. I remember Ford getting loose ball and pumping it down field. But the angle of Ford's kick meant that the covering French player could only really kick it dead straight, as it happened he spooned it out into touch and gave England a lineout between the 22 and halfway.

He was a lovely guy, down to earth,  incredibly enthusiastic and entertaining. I did a shoot with Murray and Stirling Moss a few years back and they were such a great double act. RIP

I usually subscribe to the 'don't meet your heroes' philosophy, but I'm a bit jealous you met Murray Walker. Was he easy to talk to?

He was brilliant, really friendly to the crew, happy to re-record anything that was needed and full of stories. Having Sterling Moss sat next to him upped the anti, they were obviously very good friends.
The programme we were making was publicity for a kids car based cartoon series and they were both so easy to work with, in stark contrast to the famous Northern comedian that we filmed in the afternoon for the same show.

Now he was a real case of never meet your heroes.

Ooh! Ross Noble always seems like a nice bloke... 😲

Though I could imagine Jason Manford being a bit mardy if he wasn't in the mood for something.

Ross Noble supposedly is a very lovely bloke, I would be extremely surprised if that turned out to be who Billy was talking about!

My guess would actually be Peter Kay, I think.

I’ve had it on quite good authority that Jason Manford is a sleazy snake of a man
