Cardiff squad as strong as it could be after their dodgy league start - could they beat Lyon away?

Cracking win in France for Cardiff - Gareth Anscombe starred, will be well-placed for the AIs now.

Sanjay only on the bench!!!  His work in the air would be ideal in the expected conditions.

Neither team firing, but one has to win - or is a draw out of the question?! Gareth Owen & Tommy Reffell on Tigers bench.

Will wounded Tigers be more or less of a threat on Friday night?

Attritional draw at Sandy Park, with Tadgh Beirne instrumental in earning Munster a low-score draw against the Chiefs.
Great result for Glaws in a thrilling contest against the French champions. Wonder what negatives Eddie Jones will see in Danny Cipriani's outstanding performance.

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/bath-owner-bruce-craig-writes-to-champions-cup-organisers-to-demand-replay-of-toulouse-defeat-927jnk89n

Bath want to replay their game against Toulouse because they kicked the ball into touch on 80 minutes and the ref blew for full time and Bath didn't get a chance to have a line-out.

Maybe Wales will get to replay the Italy game in 2007.

dragons went down in a competitive effort against the saints...The crowd of 4300 odd is a serious danger sign imo if they get that kind of crowd for a massive cross border european clash with the mighty northampton, what hope is there ?

Edinburgh have been granted permission to build a 'Mini Murrayfield' next to Murrayfield by the city council.

It is hoped the new 7,800-seater facility will be ready for Richard Cockerill's side to use next season.

Edinburgh moved back to the national stadium earlier this year after ending a temporary arrangement at Myreside.

Four stands approximately 8.6m high will be built around a new synthetic 3G surface on Murrayfield's back pitches.

Edinburgh squandered a 13 point lead to lose 34-16 away to Zebre. 

We're next up against Edinburgh. Is this a good or a bad result for us ? Will they be fired up next week ?

That result could backfire on us. However, the pressure is solely on them to perform in front of their fans, so we should us that pressure to our advantage and try and get their fans to turn on them.
On the plus side, that’s a 5 point gain on them this weekend.

Dragons lost in Ulster 36-18.

O's were 17-3 up against Connacht. It is now 17 all.

Edinburgh losing out in Zebre is significant for our group.

O’s snuck a 5 point win, in fairness a good result against a fully loaded Connacht.

A win next week could put us 13 pts ahead of Edinburgh. That would be a very nice cushion. 

Benetton could do us a favour this afternoon by turning over Leinster.

Our forwards need to play to the same standard v Edinburgh, and our backs need to play a lot better!

Lienster just did a job on Benneton.
How come Irish international squad players are turning out for their Regions this weekend and we are denied?
Keep the faith
