Re: Tampon vs The Rioters

3 yellow cards in 22 minutes. Impressive

Ulster making hard work of scoring points with the 1/2 man advantage all the same.

Re: Exeter Vs Leinster

I'm so happy with that. Once we went 14-0, the team put in their best performance of the season Yeah, great to see them recover so quickly after a very poor start. Really pleased to see the fighting spirit, which we haven't seen in a while. Also happy that the likes of Ross Byrne, Lowe and Larmour ...

Easy to poke fun of the man, and he may well have appreciated that humour himself.

The red card situation is very frustrating at times, a slight slip, push or dip can be the difference between a great 'dominant' tackle and a red card. As others have said, the game does have to make a stand to reduce risk, especially to head injuries. Hopefully the players (especially) and refs ada...

Hard luck Welshies. Discipline cost you in the end. Could still win the tournament, so not all bad.
Didn't feel like a Grand Slam year in all honesty.
