Firstly, we'd like to apologise to the author of this piece, Danny Brothers, for furthering his torment on Saturday. Not only did he have to sit through a ponging performance from Northampton, he had to write about it afterwards following an opportunistic request prior to the game from yours truly. Fair play for following up with this, Danny.
