I happened to be in the South of France last weekend, where generosity provided my colleagues and I a set of tickets to the European Rugby Champions Cup quarter-final knockout match, in Clermont.

Not a decade passes between nostalgic politicians telling us how great they can make us, again. They ride in on horses, and leave in hearses, like the rest of us.

Not all tackles are equal. There’s the ankle tap that seems to require several strides before it takes effect, the ‘hold on to Julian Savea for dear life by an appendage until help arrives’ tackle.

Early days, but surely some teams are already out of the title picture. In fact, it looks to me that only eleven teams are truly in this competition, with three of those (the Reds, the Highlanders, and the Waratahs) hanging on by the skin of their underpants.

Do we love rugby primarily because we enjoy the score? Deep statistics? The technique of the tighthead? The precise aim off the tee?
