Hahahah...what a thrutch. I think they had the grade right way back when it was a Diff...there aren't any real technical moves it's just bloody awkward. You can jam your body in and let go with hands and feet as I demonstrated to the lads. Movement is the difficulty. Had me smiling after the event :D
