To my mind today's RU looks a lot like the last days of unlimited tackle -"head down ###### up" as they used to say.

A lot of things came together in the early 60s to crunch gates down.From within the game the impact of more professional coaching on defence making unlimited tackle less attractive after the more open rugby of the 40s n 50s ,broader social trends changing peoples' leisure activities and so on.Personally I also feel the advent of Match of The Day had a big impact in widening the appeal of soccer.As a young boy in St Helens in the early 60s touch rugby in the street/playground/park was the default game.Ten years later and it was all football with rugby only happening on an organized school/club level.

I'm a keen Saints fan n laughed out loud as they showed it.It was completely appropriate given our woeful performance on a night when at they very least we needed to make sure the points difference wasn't eroded too much.
