Can just apply that comment for this round as well. So evenly matched all the way through, and just nicking it at the end.

Yep! Just watched it - another nail-biter and some good educated guesses there from Innis and team got you through against a very strong UCL team.

Edinburgh in front for a whole set of bonuses at the end this time. Positively comfortable by their normal standards.

Thanks very much to all of you for the kind words about UC - quite possibly the most stressful thing I've ever put myself through (it's even harder than it looks, and I'm all the more in awe now of the teams who can post high scores time after time without breaking a sweat) but also among the most fun. Would kill to do it again.

Congratulations on a great run, and very gracious in defeat against an exceptionally strong performance. As Paxman said, you've shown your strength in the past, just couldn't get in against them on Monday.

And well done personally on your performance as captain, encouraging your team throughout (despite what the Mail claims!)

I had no idea what this was a reference to, so I looked for it. Anyone else can find it too, so I won't help the Mail by linking to the article. Suffice to say that all they've done is taken an ambiguous gesture to a team-mate and cranked out another one of those lazy articles where they combine an innocuous thing on a TV show with a few screenshots of tweets and pad it out to a few hundred words.

Anyway, well done to Innis and the team. Great performance through the series, unlucky you couldn't get further.

(Presumably the Mail tried to contact you for comment but gave up when they couldn't track down "Ennis Carter".)

I advise all people to ask Innis for the full story of this some time. It is (for an outsider) genuinely hilarious.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...
