    Well if we look at last season Leinster were sub par throughout the year, lost more internationals than any other province and still topped the league. Connacht wanted it more in the final so fair play but so far this season they're not at the same table as Leinster or Munster. A couple of European wins that they made way too much work out of aside, they've become very average.

    I'm pretty ****** about that to be honest. No way Connaught would have found our line without the kick to the corner.
    As for Wasps being beatable, well done.....Yes we're beatable and particularly so when we play as poorly as we did on saturday

    Far as I know Connacht could have opted for a scrum, t&g or pen, plenty of possibilities , hats of to Muldoon though..

    I see no point blaming the ref. It was the wrong call but it was Wasps fault they decided to fart about at the end of the game. If you're going to play it tight to kill the game there is no excuse to being outnumbered at our own ruck by 2 or 3 to 1, yet Wasps were when the turnover happened.
    What is the sin bin? Is it some kind of Catholic skip area?

    That's my point though really, I would have backed us to defend against anything other than a driving line out. Our defence had been pretty solid and I believe they would have held
    Having said this, completely agree with ragerancher, our own fault to concede the penalty anyway. I personally would have backed us setting up a kick downfield and challenged Connaught to try and go 50 metres.

    I know that why I did one without them in.

    Reckon Chelsea will bite me in the arse considering they are against Leicester.

    Steelers should beat KCC BUt hoping Big Ben injury will hamper them.

    Did about 5 Acca's with various teams out.

    Speaking of Arsenal, does Wenger have shares in the club? Because for the last 10/15 years all he has been interested in doing is making as much money as possible for the club. The shareholders must love him! I know I would if I was a shareholder. I don't know how the paying fans put up with that lack of ambition though.

    He made a great decision, drew what was pretty much the last well placed defender and passed to a man in the clear. That's the odds on decision there.

    Maybe but he should of back himself IMO, a winger like him should back themselves in that situation.

    Although saying that Wasps should of finished that off and 2 others already.

    And if he'd been caught everyone would be crucifying him.

    Lots of ball hitting the ground. The Toulouse 9 just can't pass it.
