When halibuts get in the way of a good game…

You make one small mistake… Okay, maybe more than just the one, but even so… A game defined by the presence of the odd Hippoglossus or two is one that tends to be remembered for the wrong reasons. Cam seeing a lot of the halibut Cov defence strong as we win the pen — Tim…
