Jamie Cudmore kept his part of a bilateral non-aggression pact with his former Clermont sparring partner, Nathan Hines, drawn up before their war of attrition against Sale.

Despite adhering strictly to ‘an unspoken gentleman’s agreement not to hit each other,’ Cudmore still succeeded in finding an alternative way of ending up in the sin-bin. On a day when Manchester’s swirling sleet did its dirty best to make the Canadian feel at home on the prairie, ‘Cuddles’ notched up Yellow Card No. 34 for his part in conceding a second-half penalty try. He may not have gone the distance but his team did, coming from behind to win 22-13.
