Made at 126lbs, it involved both Dixon’s and Erne’s claims at the weight and the latter proved to be more than a match for Tom O’Rourke’s wonder. Erne gave a very clever performance, especially in the art of infighting, and with Dixon also in top gear it turned into a scientific contest of the highest order.
