    Found out yesterday that my rants about the weak team were actually not quite right, as I didn't quite realize how extensive the Blues' injury list is...

    Currently stands at:

    Ellis Jenkins, Ray Lee-Lo, Willis Halaholo, Dmitri Arhip, Owen Lane, Kristian Dacey, Tomos Williams, Josh Navidi, Jarrod Evans (all would likely be in the Blues' strongest XV), plus Matthew Rees, Rhun Williams, Jack Roberts, Lloyd Williams, Jason Harries & Harri Millard.

    Not ideal to say the least! Naturally severely doubt we'd have got anything from the game even with a full strength side, but maybe wouldn't quite have conceded as many points.

    Hats off to the Sarries fans though, been very gracious in victory!

    A real strange one.

    Saracens have been the more dominant side, but Cardiff lead. Maitlands defending on the 2nd wasn’t something to write home about.

    The blues need to be careful, their aggression has been top notch, but they need to make sure it doesn’t cost them a sin bin or 2.

    Edit1: definite sin bin for Skelton. However Garces needs to be consistent. Only 10mins prior the Blues were giving away pen after pen in the red zone and nothing.

    Edit2: if that wasn’t awarded, it surely would have been a penalty try...

    Lyon have finally turned up.

    How did they play so badly against Cardiff and Glasgow?
