Must admit I agree with you, the risk of someone important getting injured or red carded in a game that's a dead rubber just wasn't worth it. Besides, why not boost morale by giving squad members a game? That cannot be a bad thing at all.
Still makes no difference when the rest of the team play like arse whenever in a white shirt. The quicker England get knocked out of the WC the better, I can start enjoying it and watching some decent teams instead then.
A mate gave it to me as he didn’t need it any more. Not as amazing as it sounds, given it’s done 150k and has been fed on its own oil and has no brakes and the crank pulley disintegrated the other week
