Still better than Robbo though. He hasn’t started with the cringeworthy nicknames like calling McCloskey the Bangor Bulldozer or Will Connors’ sisters calling him “Whingey” or some shit, nor have we treated to a run through of where the players played mini rugby when they were 8 years old.

Giving out loads of freebies here, Scarlets game level of discipline at times.

Ref has been good, clear and consistent. :thumbup:

Munster look good at times and headless at others. Badly need a try at the beginning of the second half to really believe in themselves.

Cardiff getting the calls so far. Hopefully the ref equals it out this half. Mostly fair calls.

I like Robbo, he's obviously taking the piss all the time. He's entertaining.

I support the Dregs so I’m very much a neutral eye.

If you ever want to know why the league is derided here in Wales then this is it.

Munster backs are very sluggish in attack and Cardiffs poor kicking from their halfbacks is killing them

Would love to see stats on how much is being kicked this season v last.


Refs blowing the whistle at every opportunity I think has lead to massive increase in kicking

Healy doesn’t hang about with his kicks. Like Ronnie O’Sullivan, just goes up and bang.

I hate milked penalties like that.

Could easily have played ball.


That try was from a split maul imo... illegal obstruction

There's nothing Haley can do about that. If you've a winger flying at your fullback someone else has f**ked up.

Yeah damage was done but all too easy. Cardiff are dangerous and not liking how easily we're opening up.
