It's great to watch a real rugby match in the Pro14. They're rare.

A nod to Haley as well. Incredibly solid given the conditions.

Doris doesn't play for Munster, as that couldn't be the Irish backrow as it's dominated by Leinsters every time they play each other

Well played Munster, that was a good win.

Will be very interested to see how Casey goes in the HEC.

Great to see Coombes shine in a proper dogfight in shite weather. Turnovers, tries, link play, aggression - early days, but v exciting prospect.

The Scottish sides always struggle during international breaks, they lose too many players to remain competitive. It is the Welsh that are the problem.

I have to agree.

The gulf is only going to get bigger too.


Could we create divisions in the pro14. Provinces would get more out of it if they played each other more and the top 2/3 'others'

Still miles off the top but for once there's competition in the squad, a style that suits us being a bunch of niggly f*cks on every play and skills are in the post.

Will take that every day of the week.

Its a real problem.
We are too good for this league.
Lose television audiences, lose the league.
Don't think the SA Super League clubs are the answer.
Have to be British Irish league, two divisions, promotion and relegation.

I think this will have to be the final outcome
There will be fear about the control the English spivs will bring to the table
Also is the death knell of:
a) The European Cup
b) Italian club rugby

But the welsh have boasted how games against the English will get their juices flowing so think of all that glorious Welsh TV money

Gavin Coombes Motm. He seems a bit camera shy as you would be at that age. As he was being interviewed his leg was twitching like a bull scratching his front leg as he’s about to charge the matador. Some man. Fair play to him.
He was probably full of beans. Enjoying these matches no doubt.
