    First of all it's a coronation bestowed on Gilbert and Murray. My how he's brought that fellow along so quickly. Much talk and visuals of Gilbert in the stands. It all seemed rather incestuous to me.

    However the capper came when they talk about the "problem" with players looking to coaches to figure out whether to challenge (and this came up when Murray was looking up at his new coach). They all agree that,at the moment, it constitutes illegal coaching if the coach signals. They then have live feed of Gilbert who is, as they put it, "miked up", which is a really stupid innovation in my book, and Gilbert is saying "Challenge, challenge...." Of course they don't comment.

    I understand the challenge as being a good thing for bad calls but they were also saying, hey, you have nothing to lose here, why don't you challenge? It felt kind of gamy to me.
