Mess about from the start, and quite possibly lose the game because of it, fine
Get to 50 points up and then start .. not so good

I can agree with this... as I said, I haven't had chance to watch the Eng v BaBas game yet (hopefully find time this evening), so I don't know the scores.

I refereed a league game L9? about 10-12 years ago or so which finished 109-0.

After about 40-50 points their props started making noises about wanting to take conversions.

I told the captain that whilst I couldn't insist they didn't I suggested that "if you play long enough (he wasn't that old) you might be on the wrong end of one of these sorts of games. I told him I thought it shows a lack of respect for your opponents and at least one of you may end up with fat lip!"

The regular kicker took all the kicks!

I once played when we got beaten 97-3 when it was 4pts for a try. We were 3 nil up with a DG from 40m out!!! :)
