Bit unfair. The table doesn't lie plus they're still in with a shout with Europe. I'll put it down to being a faithful one eyed scarlet tho. 😂
Totally one eyed but the capital club are a disgrace they have poor crowds, little private investment yet are in the richest part of Wales. Since the regions started they have produced a lot less internationals than we or the Ospreys but they will always be safe because they are the capital club. 


The hard thing to accept is that ospreys have brought at least x5 more Welsh players through

Attendances are on average slightly better than us. 
They should be ten times with the population and money in region

Moved above Edinburgh with that win, and so 2 points behind the O's and 6 behind Cardiff with 2 to play.

Glasgow blew away Munster yesterday and have their eyes ( and are looking good) on a Top 4 finish (home tie in the play offs). Something they will secure if they beat us.

I actually think we won't get any higher in the league, even though I think we will win v Drags, and will finish behind Cardiff and the O's, albeit by only a point or two.

I think the O's will win their last 2 games (Edinburgh away and Cardiff), and Cardiff will lose their last 2 (Connacht away and O's).
So the O's will win the Shield.

Feels dirty in my mouth.

Yes, I'm saying we won't beat Glasgow (Lofty is about to pwn me)....however if we did then the Welsh derbies will become a sort of showdown on who wins the shield - goes in to the Top tier of Europe...could be fun!

Our season has been quite a spectacular turnaround.

When we lost to the Ospreys on Boxing day we had played 10 league games and got just 7 points.

We have played 6 more league games since then, and come away with 26 points.

I hope that we can keep Blackett. Edinburgh gone it seems, hope Lee stays. Hopefully he can see that there's something building here, and that say in 2-3 seasons time he'll have made a significant addition to his cv.

Blackett is our best signing this season...with him all the team found balance in his game stile, both attack and defence...
Will be hard to retain him but I think all possibile has to be done

I think we'd all like him to stay. Unfortunately The Rugby Paper has mentioned him possibly going to Newcastle. Given his name has been mentioned with 2 different clubs, I'm assuming that he's looking elsewhere.

It’s a shame we’re running out of road as we’re really motoring now. Slipping to a draw to Ospreys and a defeat to Cardiff at home at the start of the season will probably prove costly. Despite our great win yesterday they both pulled an extra point away from us this weekend. It doesn’t seem right! 

Munster might be joining us in the Challenge Cup next season. Two tough away matches in South Africa to finish off and they’ll need to pick up points.

On the fake pitch its anyones game. Hopefully mask our weak scrum and allow for running rugby (which we are good at!)
