God I love the Euro cup. Have been looking forward to this match for weeks now.

Weather could be windy but looks like worst of the winds will be gone by the time the game starts,

Well look what the cat dragged in. Still we don’t have many wasps supporters on the board so we’ll take it

I will be hiding behind Globus' sofa for this fixture. It's going to be carnage. Wasps are abysmal.

You're going to win handily with a try bonus point. We (Wasps) might score a couple of nice tries in retaliation, but I wouldn't expect much of a contest.

It’s a relief to know I’m not the only one who fcuking hates the BT rugby coverage. I feel like crawling behind the couch when the ‘bantz’ starts. x(

What Wasps really needed to progress this season was to add some defensive steel to their attacking flair.


On the evidence so far they've done the opposite.

Set to be played in a monsoon. There'll be no 4 try BP for either side if the forecast holds.

Nah. Our defense is actually a bit better, but we've got a whole midfield who barely know each others' names and for one reason or another the personnel keep having to change on an almost weekly basis. We've also got very little depth in our pacl at the moment with a number of our experienced front and back rowers on the treatment table or due to come back for the first time this week this week. Team cohesion in the heat of battle is lacking somewhat and with Robson now gone we're going to be missing what little direction we've had on attack.

From all my years of lurking it could be us: Raggs, Gospel, Petros, happyhooker, Chuckles, Anon, Niegs, ovalball (I think) and now me.


That Leinster team list... you'll have to play bloody poorly not to keep daylight between us.

Our backrow :uhoh: Shields and Young have no appreciable game time this season. Think Young got about 20 minutes for the first time last week.
