Drop Goal40 DROP GOAL, SHARKS, LAMBIE! 3-12. The Sharks attack deep inside the Kings' half but cannot breach the home side's defence. Lambie drops into the pocket and lands the snap-shot from about 25 metres out. That's the last act of the half as the referee blows his whistle to signal half-time.

Give George Ford the chance to shine for England, says Dewi Morris

I watched Bath v Saracens last Friday and was very impressed with George Ford and how well he controlled that game for Bath. I would love to see him play a big role in the autumn internationals and I hope Stuart Lancaster starts him for at least two of the four Tests.
