Am I alone in suddenly seeing the value of the Anglo Welsh Cup. For years I have dismissed it as a Mickey Mouse event not worthy of my attention. This season something feels different about it. It seems to have found an identity and purpose all of it’s own and as a consequence is actuallly pretty enjoyable.
Sure you don’t have the star names turning out as you do in the Premiership or Champions Cup, sure you don’t have the intensity of those competitions but what you do have is a host of youngsters and guys coming back from injury keen to impress and without the pressure that goes with the front line competitions there is a desire to try things out.
