Peter Bills, a writer in the UK and Irish Independent, has publically decided he no longer wishes to be taken as a serious rugby journalist.
In a bizarre turn of events he has written the following article (see quote and link below) in a national newspaper in relation to Biarritz's European Cup semi-final win last weekend:
"They (Biarritz) risk nothing, attempt little. Theirs is an exercise solely in defensive survival, in hanging on, and hoping that their opponents make critical errors. Is this the way to uphold rugby's great virtues?
I accept, if you have nobody of ability outside the scrum, by all means play a restricted nine or 10-man game. But in Biarritz's case, they have the players, but simply don't use them for 90pc of the game.
They showed nothing against Munster, bar Dimitri Yachvili's immaculate goal-kicking, the industry of their forwards and a solid defence.
Call me a romantic if you must. But I don't buy the Biarritz style. It's garbage to watch and must be garbage to play for anyone with the remotest sense of rugby adventure and style.
The great chapters of Heineken history have been written by teams prepared to have a go, to attack, to attempt to grab the glory. Munster, Toulouse, Leinster, Wasps, Leicester -- they have all had the courage to seize the moment."
Read his first statement and then read the list of teams he gives as examples of attacking teams.
If you need anything else pointed out, well, you probably only started following rugby about a month ago and we'll forgive you.
