Team Wales orders ??? Only wondering. They are now paying 80% of his wages so I understand.


I guess so, never thought of that, good call.

Thought I read somewhere on here that the O's were under orders to rest Tipuric yesterday ?

I haven't actually checked the records but I'm pretty sure that every game we've lost this year has been down to poor discipline. Between the red and yellow cards yesterday, we played about 55 minutes with 14 players. We may not like our current style of play but I don't think thats the problem.  In my humble opinion, if we can sort out our discipline we will be a good side.

Don't think we had a card in Belfast or against Munster.

But I think that we conceded a shedload of penalties in the last twenty minutes against Munster, costing us the game, didn’t we? I can’t remember how our discipline was against Ulster. As Rob was saying our problem this season isn’t just the number of cards but the amount of penalties we concede, especially stupid mindless ones. These often result in us going from their 22 to defending on our tryline as a result of two or three consecutive soft penalties.

I stand corrected,but I believe that Cardiff conceded 7 penalties in the 3rd qtr.

It was certainly something like that but that was also the quarter of the game where we dominated most. Not a coincidence.

I don't think its just that. Our skillset has been awful many times. Players unable to string more than a few passes together. Infuriating. That and poor kicking.

The Blues game after we went ahead in the 2nd half was classic game mismanagement. I thought we were going to go on and win by 10-12 pts.

2 yellows and 4 reds this season.

Blues are the only team worse than us in the ‘discipline league’ with 8 yellows and a red.

You are right RR, it’s the above plus our very modest attacking stats.

Yes Wil & RR you can't get away from our pretty awful discipline as being a large contributor to our average season to date. I would add lack of pace as another big factor aside from coaching. Teams are looking at playing with tempo against us more and more which they would never have done a few seasons ago.

Really relieved especially  with his afters to the referee which got Sinclair 2 weeks! Liam is a lucky boy. Good news anyway

Does this mean we are playing the Blues next weekend?

One of the games covered by the suspension is set to be a clash between the Scarlets and Cardiff Blues the weekend after this one which is in the process of being arranged.
