LET'S GO RACING AGAIN
So it wasn’t the last dance in Dublin and the music continues on to gay Paris. Saracens’ brilliant performance in Ireland last weekend means that Brad Hood and his Merry Men have at least another week together – and who knows where we might go from here.
Good For An Hour
Have our old issues with managing the final quarter returned or was it all down to Bath suddenly finding some superb form? Hopefully the latter as our hosts turned on the gas to win 31-20 after we led for most of the game.
Russian GP: Williams Racing Grand Prix Preview
The Williams Racing Team returns to Sochi for the 2020 Russian GP. This is a return to a more familar track which should assist the team in their push to continue their improvement in performamnce. Despite this track not been well suited to the FW43 the team has a range of ideas on which to improve the car. After the disappointment of the Tuscany GP bith George Russell and Nicholas Latifi are keen to continue to continue their season with their first points scoring result.

LET THE GOODE TIMES ROLL
Ok, so first off, I should really apologise for two things that will be clear in this report…… Firstly, I missed the first few minutes due to embarking on a 19 kilometre cross country run that took longer than I thought and I just kept going……… and secondly, that this report may have a bias towards Sarries! Apology over.

Big goals for Wood and Dunne but injury-hit Clarets bitten by Foxes
Chris Wood and Jimmy Dunne both recorded personal landmarks but their goals were not enough to spare the injury-hit Clarets defeat on their opening night in the Premier League.
Players Ratings v Hammers Saka MotM
Poor performance. Passing wasn't great at times and we looked in trouble every time West Ham put a ball into the box. However, we scored two well-crafted goals. Big three points though with some of the games coming up.
Partey and Aouar needed ASAP please.

U23 Play Brighton Report - Saliba Plays
Our U23s played at Brighton last night,I was keen to check out a few of the new players. After losing 2-1 to Southampton U23s last week we drew 2-2 with Brighton. We equalised following a Brighton penalty and then went 2-1 up, but Brighton equalised later on. We're still looking for our first win of the season at that level.
Williams Racing denied first 2020 points in cruel finish
The results of the 2020 Tuscany GP would see Williams Racing finish with drivers George Russell in 11th while Nicholas Latifi was listed as a DNF. But these result do not fully explain firstly the chaos of the race and secondly how close the Williams team came to scoring their first points of the season. The race would see a series of incidents starting with a Safety Car period coming from an accident involving several cars after the start. This was followed by a restart that would see a major crash on the start straight which would see Nicholas crashing out. This would see a Red Flag and a further restart followed by a later crash involving Stroll. At this time George was running in ninth but with a further Red Flag and restart his prospects for scoring points would disappear after a poor start from which he would not recover coming home 11th. Such a disappointing result for Williams Racing
Tuscany GP: Encouraging qualifying for Williams Racing
For Williams Racing the results of qualifying for the 2020 Tuscany GP was very much of what could have been. They would finish in 18th and 19th with George Russell ahead of Nichola Latifi. For Nicholas his result was pretty much the best he could achieve. For George his final run could have seen him into Q2 but one mistake running wide seeing him put his right side tyres onto the gravel would ruin his chances. The session was not great in terms of the outright result but in terms of the potential that the car had it was encouraging.
Tuscany GP: Frustrating FP3 for Williams Racing
The final practice session for the 2020 Tuscany GP would see the Williams Racing Team come away from a frustrating session with just one driver been able to set a time. Nicholas Latifi would complete runs on the soft tyre and would finish in 16th. But for team-mate George Russell his session would see him suffer a Brake by Wire failure seeing him not able to set a time as the team could not resolve the issue before the end of the session. Qualifying will be very much a session where the potential results for Williams will be hard to assess and whether they can get past Q1 will be interesting to see. Nicholas could pull off a surprise by making it into Q2 while George's chances is any bodies guess, but based on previous sessions has a good chance to get into Q2.
Tuscany GP: Another typical FP2 for Williams Racing
The second Friday practice session for the 2020 Tuscany GP would see the Williams Racing drivers finish in 16th and 18th, separated by the barest of margins. George Russel would again be ahead of team-mate Nicholas Latifi. Overall it would be a fairly typical session finishing down the order as they continue their fight with the Haas and Alfa Romeo teams. It was very much the case that both drivers were pushing to get the best out of the FW43, but it is still lacking pace and that is not something that is going to come quickly even with new owners.
Tuscany GP: Typical FP1 for Williams Racing
The opening Friday practice session for the 2020 Tuscany GP would see the Williams Racing drivers finish in 16th and 20th. George Russell would finish ahead of team-mate Nicholas Latifi. The session was for most part uneventful apart from a spin from Nicholas late in the session. It was very much the typical Williams Friday FP1 with soft tyre runs followed by split tyre evaluations of the medium and hard tyre.

Strange Times The Willis Trophy Game 1 Glamorgan (H)
Farmer has produced a report on the first game from his armchair via TV I think. I can imagine him there with his white hat on and all the paraphanalia of the usual day at the County Ground but looking at Ben Warren's excellent live stream coverage and adding his own observations with the sound off. Thank you sir.... This is Day 1 there will be a link to the rest of the report on his own website at the bottom of the report. The only thing we don't have is Mike's accompanying photos - you may have to wait for the book in late 2020 or early 2021 though they will have to use archive stuff unless he is sat in front of his TV with all the kit!!
