    That puts paid to Marler's trip to Aus! A premeditated kick to the head of Heguy, who to my understanding is not a traveller, will see a seriously long ban surely.........

    Yupp! On it's own it probably not the worst incident ever, but it's an intentional nature of the kick / shin to the head which should see him get a ban. He hasn't even got past "good conduct" to fall back on, considering the forearm / elbow smash on Rob Evans and the whole Samson Lee circus was only a few weeks ago!

    So if we win today Marler will be one less problem to worry about, not the brightest kid on the block.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bigger problems for you! Some of the Press have given Quins the trophy already! Not as if you will not qualify for big competition next year so why not!!!

    What do the press know, Jake said to me at Sale that we have match winners at the highest level which will make all the difference, one game at a time, first we must win today, we beat Quins by a good score in France in the pool stages, the final is in Lyon so Montpellier will have plenty of support, and if we did happen to win the final (just futuristic dreaming) we would give an extra place to a French team next season.

    Genuinely think Montpellier would handle Quins quite comfortably

    Glad you think so, but always dangerous on a one match game a little luck, the interception, bad reffing what ever, i'm pretty confident but as i said lets not get ahead of ourselves first we have to beat the Dragons, they did beat Gloucester away from home so respect respect respect

    Marler clearly fancies the summer off.

    More a token gesture than an attempt to injure, but there's another ban coming his way. Shame as he was actually playing quite well - maybe he's one of those who needs a bit of red mist to be at his best.

    You, Gaston, may be excited but the MHR supporters are not excited enough to pay the exorbitant cost of the tickets!!

    Atmosphere must be like a morgue in there !!

    Edit - predictable win but heavy weather!! What is wrong with FTD?

    funny thing is that Harlequins finished 1st and Montpellier 2nd in the same pool now meeting in the final. disappointing crowd just under 8.000 but we are right in the middle of the school hols, so that did not help, and the season ticket holders moaned that the semi was not included unbelievable.!!!!! Beer flowed well last night in the changing room then reception afterwards. Dragons never stopped trying but they were out muscled up front, did get the respect they desered with their 2 late tries, but the game was already won by them, Quins could be a tough match in 3 weeks time. The stadium is fantastic just need it filled to the gunnels now will it be Leicester or Racing???????????? for the big final. We are quite happy to be providing the aperatif on Fri evening.

    1st it did not rain and the heavy weather was we controlled everything so no problem there.
    2nd it was also school hols right in the middle of the 2 week hols
    3rd FTD is injured stress fracture on his leg he broke last season could be back for La Rochelle in 2 weeks time
    4th. The atmosphere was very goood despite just under 8,000 in the stadium
    5th not sure if you knew but we are in the final of the Challenge Cup we beat the Dragons 22-12 last night.
    6th yes you are right Gaston is excited but did not have time for much yesterday as he was very busy 3 tele's for interviews + loads of other press even BBC turned up, + rupert sky and Ieuan Evens well reffed by Mon W Barnes.
    There you go all answered neatly and politely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
