It’s time for our so called stars to pick themselves up off the floor and put in performance of their lives three weeks of hard work no trips to Dubai or anywhere training hard and focus for biggest game of season.

It has been an awful season.  I'm usually the last to give in to pessimistic thoughts, but yes, the season has been poor.  However I don't believe this season's results will have any bearing on our performances next year.  We have a good squad going into 2019/20 and in all probability we can look forward to a good season. We need to make sure that next year's squad get a chance to grace the Champions Cup.

We need to treat this game against the Ospreys as a knockout stage game in the Champions Cup because in effect; thats exactly what it is.  Winning this game is as important as any game we have played this season. Our suport is needed now more than ever - lets make it a big day.

I suppose the competition is harder this year, so whilst the stats are harsh we’ve looked better than in other poor seasons?

It’s World Cup season though so it’s a bit of a lottery
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

I don’t know really. Anyway let’s not labour the point too much. It’s been pretty rank.

Wales extended squad announcement is on Tuesday 30 April.

I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing really.

I agree however the Ospreys will be adopting the same approach and will be at home with some momentum.
Also they have a very efficient front five and we don't.
 
Hopefully the tables will stay as they are in the other leagues, and Leinster will do a job on the Sarries, and then both of us can go through.

Which happens first, because there might not be any need for another match and humiliation at our neighbours then.

We put in a committed performance at the Liberty in December and could, probably should, have won. We’ll have a stronger squad available this time. We can win there.

First half up there we did ok but I felt we lost our way in the 2nd, allowing Ospreys to dominate and, ultimately, win the game.
Bit like yesterday, really.....

While we have had massive games in European cup over the last couple of years and a 2 league finals i believe the ospreys game will be more important. Not being in top tier of Europe next season is bad on and off the pitch so im sure the players will step up a gear. Yes its been a bad season but we do still have class players and im optimistic we can beat them at the liberty in a few weeks

Put a line under the season. This is one game. Potentially the only game all season where we can field for the first time our strongest team.
I think we can go for:
Halfpenny
Mcnicholl
Foxy
Parkes
Nicholas
Patchell
Cawdor
Macleod
Cubby
Thomson
Cummins
Ball
Samson
Ken
Wyn

Marc Jones
Phil Price
Werner Kruger
David Bulbring
Aaron Shingler
Kieran Hardy
Dan Jones
Kieran Fonotia

It's just as big for he Ospreys and they will have a huge point to make having been on the verge of being taken over by us. The only thing in our favour is all the pressure will be on the home team.
Keep the faith

We were leading at HT even with Parkes at 10. Ball going off injured saw them start to turn the tide up front, and a fortunate try resulting from a loose ball being kicked through ended up being the difference.

whilst the players are taking the flak I think it's only right to point out that the coaches shoulder a large part of the blame,as upset as wasps were to lose stevo I think our back play has been the same as it was under nigel davies and mark jones  where we either kick the ball away or just shuffle it along the back line like training,our defence has been non existent,our lineout has been a total disaster and our ball retention has been atrocious,we have british lions and internationals galore so the buck has to stop somewhere.
