It was a really close and pretty exciting contest with the lead always changing. But in the last couple of jams Auld Reekie ran ahead of Glasgow.
From my point of view, there were some very good things. Rules have been changed which, for a newbie like me, made things much easier to follow. There used to be a hierarchy of penalties which, at some point, get a player sent to the sin bin. Minor infringements, you stay on track. Unless you've had several, in which case off you go. I never had any idea what was going on there. Now (I believe!) either it's a sin-bin offence or it's no offence at all. Thank you, rule makers! Even better, the faffing around between the jammers skating off and a second whistle to allow the jammers to skate...that's all gone. Now, the whistle blows and everyone skates. Phew! I don't know what the players and refs think about the rule changes, but as a spectator I'm very grateful.
Anyway, I took some pictures.
