It's a plague on the game and for once the ref called it right

Bedford's big prop prospect - Biyi Alo - just couldn't let go of this one in his side's match against a Scarlets XV in the British and Irish Cup. 

Impressive and all as his ability was to hold on despite sustaining eight strikes to the arm, the plague of holding on to the opposition is one that you rarely see punished. However - on this occasion former professional scrumhalf Frank Murphy was happy to ping it with the help of the touch judge. The guy deserves a medal.
