Being misreported by BBC then, they're claiming this is the first time this result has ever happened. I'm going with Reg on this - the voice of authority Smiley

It appears Regipedia has the date a bit out but otherwise correct Smiley

I quite like this, it's a hard sport to dissect and apply the marginal gains stuff at times, but you often hear grumblings at throw-ins.  Either fans think players are not moving, or the throw-ins are wasted.  I'd hazard a guess because nobody bothers to train on the things, I certainly never remember doing anything when younger bar the act of learning how to take one.  McCourt had a decent length throw it seemed, something to work on with other players as well though.

To be honest the vast majority of players need training just to take a legal throw in these days, the number of frankly farcical false throws that don't get picked up is ridiculous, its become like the no ball rule in Cricket.
