Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 1 Wolves 3


Starting with the last home game of the season, yet another dispiriting defeat, these are the most recent of Pete Sixsmith‘s incisive seven-word verdicts capturing the essence of just about every game.

When, rarely, Pete is absent, a supersub does it for him. There will be no immediate post-match report, though Pete’s full analysis will appear within the next couple of days.
