Sure it's all relative. He's still very good at it!


Did you get to watch it?

As per tradition watched it in the north stand. Absolutely perfect night for rugby I thought, looked windy enough in the pitch but in the stands was so still.

Thought we tried too much too early, seemed very frustrating the first 40 mins before the second try. After that it was brilliant.

Saw the first half on my phone in the boarding area. Missed the fun half.

Just caught some of the highlights.
Looks like an R rated movie.

I thought it was quite remarkable the way Wales' 9th choice openside gave the much vaunted VDF a lesson in 7 play.

I didn’t.

Incredible game. Great to see the sub no9 - nice and zippy.

And the scrumhalf tbf.


McGrath was good tonight too, admittedly behind a pack that gave him a great platform.

The clearing out in the first half was pretty crap by Leinster.

I must say that I didn't expect that result. I would have been very happy with a 10 or 15 point win. Are Wasps lucky to lie third in the English league? Tomorrows Exeter Vs Munster match will tell a lot.

If we can deny Toulouse ball next week we will win handily enough as their defence has been pretty shocking. That said, I'll be happy with a losing bonus point next Sunday.

I like Clearys report in the Torygraph

Quote:
Leinster are in their pomp, assured, well-rested, tight-knit and driven to reach peaks of excellence at every turn. Their team list reads like an international line-up, no surprise given that the starting XV contained 493 caps. And they played to that pedigree, from the bewitching feet of prop Tadhg Furlong, to the powerhouse running of wing James Lowe, a force of nature on the night, wild and wilful.

Of course, Stockdale, Best, Henderson, POM, Leavy, Murray, SOB/Stander and Earls would also want to start in an IRISH 15.

I had to laugh when BOD called.thrm Bath. So leftfield and ultimately suggested he didn't give a shit who was playing Leinster.

It's a total nonsense giving ex-players their own club to comment on. It's one of the few things I dislike about BTs coverage and it reaches it's nadir when you have both Kay and Healy on a Leicester game when they're not playing so well.

Just watching the game now. 14-3 at 1/2 time. Luke McGrath outdid two props (πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ). Sopoanga YC was correct (and stupid by him). Wasps were well and truly spanked

Had a feeling the yellow was the correct call. What do the laws say about this?

Is it still correct if the pass that he deliberately knocked on was itself forwards?

Surely the correct call is scrum to Wasps, not penalty and yellow card against Wasps?

Nope. No realistic chance to catch the ball and a line break situation. Yellow all day

It is tricky

My understanding was that foul play trumped a knock on advantage wise but that isn’t foul play

Just before Cronin's try ref called white 3 in at the side, I presume if he over ruled the try he would have awarded that penalty.

Except it's not a line-break situation if the Leinster pass is forward, right? Had Leinster scored from that, then the try would have been disallowed for the forward pass (if it had been reviewed).

Like Mullet said, foul play is one thing but deliberately knocking on a pass that was forward... a yellow seems harsh.

One of those things that could be reviewed while the game goes on. Is it better to right a wrong as soon as possible rather than pretend you got the call right?

Line break from a forwards pass...

Forward pass, advantage Wasps, knock on by Lima, advantage over, scrum Wasps.

I found a 20 min extended hightlight vid on youtube and, Christ, Wasps’ defence was periodically amateurish. Missing posts, lazy re-alignment, ruck inspecting, hands on thighs, poor pressure, players clearly unsure who they should take / not trusting each other.

Without watching the full match, I did wonder if some were after 20 phases of one-out runners and Wasps simply were lulled to sleep. ;)

Someone post that gif of Roberts trying a skip pass for Quin's(?) and then of Henshaw's skip last night before McGrath's try.

It was 7-3 just before halftime and Wasps had defended well enough. The yellow and subsequent try killed them. Tackling was optional in the second half.

When he's winning European Cups he's a poached Welshman, but he bumps into one ref...



Oh, and if the pass had been backwards, Sopoanga would've had even less chance of catching it. He shouldn't have been sticking his hand out for it anyway.

I do think refs are quick to jump for the yellow card on a genuine intercept effort generally, though.
