Great to see Ringrose back in form, hopefully he will start to deliver for Ireland.

Handy penalty for Ospreys. Clear dummy from the base.

Second handy penalty in 8 min.

Didn't look to be anything in that on first watch. Looked like 13 pulled a Sexton and feigned injury.

Has anyone ever seen that video of the little goat who thinks he's a puppy?

That was John Ryan watching all the other lads offload there.

Yup, multiple times I've seen the pitch open up for him and he can't properly exploit it.

Most backs would be happy with that pass, let alone a prop.

Leinster made a huge mistake letting Loughman go; he's a baller. Pity for him that he's behind Ireland's best prop in Kilcoyne for a starting place.

You were probably one of the youngest people there by about 30 years but the Bath fans are all "terribly polite" and great craic to be around. Pulteney Arms, the Boater and the Saracens Head are good rugby pubs.
Don't go near the pickled eggs in the Pulteney Arms x(

It’s a beautiful read to save a catastrophic defensive system malfunction.

More like good play from Bath
Identified the fatties in midfield and shipped it wide. Really it was clever for Stockdale to bite in on the Bath player to force him to tip on to Mercer knowing he was covered by the bobby in behind

LNah.

Half the line was drifting while the outside was blitzing.
Pause the video and look at how many bunched up defenders aren’t marking anybody.
