Season starts today.
Aaaaand we're back.
Aaaaand we're back. We beat Bath by 7.
Leinster were lucky last night, Cardiff we’re playing great rugby and showed some excellent work by the pack. Still a win for Leinster even though they were poor will stand to them. If I was Cullen I’d worry about Tomane in midfield.
Plus side Premier Sports coverage is good. Was nice to see Sam Warburton on the sidelines with the mic.
Just caught the Connacht game and had the first ref howler of the season when Hogg picked up a ball carried over his tryline, plonked it down and was awarded a 22. Where was the TMO?
Wow. Matt O'Connor gone at Leicester. 3 DoRs in under 2 years!
Think it's a shame to see the once powerhouse of English rugby, Leicester, going downhill
Hoping the downfall of Leicester means we can get Gengey back to Bris...
Dear Channel 5, I like that you've put the highlights on terrestrial TV, and I hope you've got some more live matches this season, and thank you so much for retaining Durders and Flats. However, move the programme back to Sunday evenings, as it was on ITV4. It's a right fucker to try and avoid too many details of results in the media.
I see for this season that the Pro14 have greatly improved their youtube highlights of each game. Much appreciated!
ignore me I'm talking shite
No, go on...
Bristol well in against Sarries, leading most of the game until George Smith saw red with 35 odd minutes left and then Saracens fully turned the screw.
Think it definitely shows Bath weren't a first night fluke, so much optimism in being a Bris fan right now.
Sale weren't fantastic, and nor was the game, but Worcester look like they're in for a long old season.
George Smith turned up to the disciplinary with a ball, gave them a tackling lecture and demonstration and had all charges dropped and the red rescinded.
Bristol looking decent
Unfortunately Glaws came out firing 2nd half.
If you'd have given me a win versus Bath and leading at half time versus Saracens and Glaws away I'd have bitten your arm off. Quins at home next week is a game Bris really should be able to win.
Kieran Read’s steal should have been penalised, he was down on his elbows. Still the Staffa physicality is good so far.
Good game this, SA are hitting up hard and fast pressuring the kiwi handling, NZ are driving way beyond the ball but are making loads of errors. SA ahead at half time.
Malcolm Marx is some beast.
Saffa try after the restart.
yeh, if you're not, start watching this game
great saffa try
That winger, 11 has some step. Like a Shane Williams in his orime imo.
Felt Read should have been penalised for a shoulder to the head clear out.
Some game. Cmon SA.
Result. Nice one SA.
Rassie has to happy with that. That message that his job was on the line was a master stroke.
What a test!
What a result. How the AB's didn't go for the drop goal i don't know.
A great weekend of games...highlights are definitely the SA win but the game of the week has to be Zebre vs Cardiff. Zebre won coming from three tries down and restricted Cardiff to three points in the second half.
Does anyone know when C5 might showing some live games? I think it was from about November last season, and I've yet to hear Durders or Flats say anything. The story on the original deal said it was a four year deal.
I see John Mitchell has joined England as defence coach. A famously stable and self effacing coach, I wonder how he and eddie will gel?
