So guys. What of the weather. Travelling from Bridgend.   Seems much worse with you. Really really want to be there but all advice is not to travel.

Who is advising not to travel?
If it's the Police the the rugby authorities are duty bound to call the game off surely???

Train companies. They've advised no trains between carmarthen and swansea after 7pm. Which is unfortunate.

Not going to risk the 4 hour journey down from north Wales, unfortunately. Gutted but just too far and uncertaintly over a lot of the roads (plus lots of little ones that we take to get there!)

That’s what I think about today. All starts at the gain line for me. Like many French teams, the pack are proficient carriers and the back then get front foot ball. Hold them at the gain line, let it become an arm wrestle, and we will do well.

The only concern I have is the lack of proven jackalers in our ranks. Looking to Boyde really. We have depended more than most on our turnover prowess for tries in recent seasons.


I’m hoping Wyn Jones is going to contribute to the turnover count as well. He’s been excellent in this area in the past.

Yes indeed Wil the gainline is extremely important & we have been a bit hit and miss in that area so far this season. On the subject of turnovers I have noticed that they are a not as frequent this season in any games I've watched until of course Thomas Young gave a brilliant display in getting 4 against Leinster last night. Even Tadhg who had an otherwise great game against Leinster last week had no turnovers I can recall. 

As for our jackalers  no side in Europe wouldn't miss Cubby but I feel that others like Wyn, Samson, Kennedy, Blade & Boyde in particular need & will step up. Hard yards are going to be key today with the weather conditions dictating events to a point. Lets see how up for the fight they are if they get no easy yards - when they get ball make it slow and get in Russell's face. Their captain & 12 Chavancy is a good player with a big heart so Hadleigh will need to pressurise him. Steff vs Thomas is a mouth watering prospect.
