Stephen Jones hasn't said much about Sam thus far, he has been waiting for his moment. And it arrived at the weekend after Bath were beaten 21-13, he wrote in the Sunday Times:
“With the greatest respect Burgess is alarmingly lucky to be in Bath’s first team. He was hardly ever used and on this performance he doesn’t have the gas to hit the line hard with the ball.”
"he doesn’t have the gas to hit the line hard with the ball.”-- unbelievable ! Give me strength.
It is a measure of the grip that Union has on the Press in this country that Jones has been able to get away with his anti League propaganda for decades in a supposedly serious Paper
Also, why is the fact that "he was hardly ever used", poor Sam's fault? Jones is one of the very few people that I actually and truly hate with a passion. He is probably looked upon as a pillar of the community, a nice middle class god fearing chap with his perfect little family. Trouble is the guy is a pure bigot when it comes to Rugby and, unfortunately for him, you cannot be a partial bigot in just one area of your life. You are ether a bigot or you are not. Jones is a bigot.
