Punctured Tornado Tube.

Hi all this being my first post I hoped it would be a good one but its not Doh! I have a 6.5m Tornado which unfortunately when I was driving with it on the trailer the other day one of the guide wheels on the trailer collapsed and the tube fell onto the tyre causing a the tube to puncture. I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on repairing the hole would it be better putting a patch on the inside as well as on the outside.
Many thanks
Ant.

When I punctured my Tornado tube I read the posts on here and the internet and all said it was almost impossible. However went ahead ordered a polyurethane patch , the glue and did it no bother. And that was my first ever repair. Just followed the instructions and it worked a treat.

Suppose it depends on hole size and where it is.

Think I read somewhere it's ok if the rip is less than 2 inches? Above that you have to put one on the inside too.
