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.

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

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

Absolute tonking for Wasps at the RDS as Leinster ran away in the second half.

Freddie Burns missed an easy kick and dropped the ball over the line after blowing kisses to the crowd at the Rec. Sure his teammates will rally round him this week.Embarrassed

Starting against the Dragons isn’t the best of references. It’ll be interesting to see who gets picked at 10 for the Blues in the next two weeks in Europe with the much thought opposition.


Well I meant from the point of view of having watched the game last night and over the last couple of weeks, particularly against Munster. 
Understood.

V Munster, didn’t he start at 15 for that? It’s a bit difficult to pick someone as ten for Wales if the coach doesn’t pick them as their regional first choice.

However, that might change as the new coach understands his squad more.

Time will tell.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Great second half from blues....Lane is a handful for them on the wing he should make the welsh squad imo, hopefully though not at the expense of steff evans....The cardiff front row went well, gill and dillon lewis seemed to turn the screw when they came on, and they mauled the dragons at will...anscombe was very solid, jarod evans looks classy too, gets the backs going. turnbull quality as usual and navidi and ellis jenkins good combo especially at the breakdown....Dragons started well 2 quick tries...but dropped a few restarts and the cardiff bench seemed to be stronger. Moriarty lost his head a lot, glad to see rhodri w at 9 hes a classy player and another ex scarlet , tavis knoyle came on later, made a few errors though. Happy to see tyler morgan back, quality player....any news on hal amos injury?
