Anyone watching Ospreys v Glasgow?
Good game….nasty looking ankle injury for Shaun Lamont.
Tom Issacs has been outstanding so far. Not sure who the spreys 9 is, but he is putting in the worst performance that I’ve ever seen from a pro player!….and I’ve watched lots of Chris Ashton!Posted 4 years agodmortsSubscriber
I was at Edinburgh v Connacht tonight at Murrayfield. An entertaining game, including an interception and try in one movement! Thing is, the crowd turnout was awful and I’ve heard this is the norm. It’s possibly to do with it being £20 to get in… the same some tickets for the international a week ago went for!Posted 4 years ago
How long before AWJ gets his retaliation in on Stampy Horwill?
AW J isnt that type of player. Infact the Wales team in recent years are pretty good at ignoring stuff, see how well Hibbard dealt with Louw. AW has already had his revenge in winning the series.Posted 4 years ago
That Glos / Tigers game was a good one, couple of crazy interception tries etc.Posted 4 years ago
The Glos pack really isn’t fit for purpose is it? When even Sale can hump them around the pitch its saying something.
Tigers looked steady up front and it was always going to be that way in a war of attrition. Having said that, if Glos could kick some goals they would have been out of sight.
Great pic of Freddy Burns looking destroyed in the changing room last night, got to wonder what its doing to the teams heads..jambalayaSubscriber
Off to see Stade Francais v Toulon later. Seems Toulon are resting lots of players ahead of H Cup next weekend, none of the English contingent are in the squad (Wilkinson, Armitage brothers, Stevens) Giteau and Botha are on the bench. Michelak plays 10 and Habana starts. Moyne Steyn is on the bench for Stade (first game I think), lot of internationals on show – all the French contingent are playing and a bit if an SA reunion. Perhaps Toulon think this is enough to beat an out of sorts Stade whilst saving players for first H Cup match.Posted 4 years ago
Glaws scrum not been right this season and it was also a combo of little bits of everything – set piece in general/mistakes/game management. What’s worrying is scrum aside that was the poorest tigers team I’ve seen for a while. 36 had a good game, defence sometimes good, and the backs did a bit with poor ball, but I’d not say we are a step away from things clicking as suggested in match report.Posted 4 years ago
