The Saffa’s are up for this. The ab are fouling themselves off the pitch.
The slow demise of the ABs may just be gathering pace.
ETA I may have spoken too soon.
Well that wasn't how the Wuss game was meant to go.
C4 have Bath-Toulouse on live next Saturday. I can't remember C4 doing rugby before.
Leinster team for tonight:
Don't work Nick McCarthy is the replacement scrum half while 12/13 are covered by Joe Tomane, one of those players who's not as good as he thinks he is.
Still basically an Ireland first XV tho.
I suppose. Which actually doesn’t bode well for the national side in the long run.
That's what I thought. I don't follow Irish club rugby, but that looks like a 6N line-up.
As a Wasps fan I did silently cry when I saw the Leinster team sheet.
If we finish within 15-20 points I think I'll be ok.
And we've lost Robson until 2019 and Hughes looks like he is going to get a questionable ban
I think Joe Schmidt has had a hand in that team selection as the national coach and with central contracting he pretty much tells the likes of Cullen and Friend when they can play players or when he wants them rested. With the AB a month away, he must have a plan.
In the plus side, lots of good talent there. We need the other three to step up though.
We really do.
Tight game, could've gone either way at the end.
kind of glad I wasn't able to watch it!
Really don't blame you
I'd say Wasps were mediocre
Just watched the game Furlong’s offload is a sight to behold.
SO’B played well too and he ain’t even the best SO’B in Ireland.
I imagine every fly half/kicker must have a game at some point in their career like Freddie Burns had today.
Didn’t Farrell have a shocker like that a couple of years ago?
Of course you would
Disappointing from Glasgow.
C4 have Muster-Gloucester next Saturday. I've never watched Irish club rugby before, so I'm looking forward to that. They've got some A-listers like Stander, Murray and O'Mahony, so it'll be good to see if they can replicate their international game. Cipriani and Polledri are always good to watch too.
You lucky soul.
Cracking win for Cardiff today, if we had a set piece we'd be in the last eight no problem.
Absolutely scorching take on the SA transformation policy and the constant bitching about it by kiwis Opinion: Why Kiwis need to STFU about transformation
Murray is injured, problem with his neck.
I'm not so sure Munster are the ones you could really enjoy. Their style is not one many could love. however they do play above themselves in Europe.
I noticed the Guardian saying the Cips is the man to unlock Munster, maybe he can, maybe he can't, but the Carberry vs Cips should be good. I think the Guardian in its usual frothy highhanded way forgot that both Exeter and Munster played into a gale in it's talking points roundup.
