Sorry, missed it.

There was something more interesting on a different channel!
It has actually been a pretty exciting game. I've really enjoyed it, despite expecting a one sided match.

Well not bad from Glos, got a trophy very early on in their new look squad. May looked very dangerous and linked up quite well. Kvesic was okay but not what i was hoping to see.

Well i am hugely gutted we lost a big game which would have made history for Scottish rugby.

But i'm going to have to say fair play to Gloucester who was more up for it then we were. it shows why Laidlaw moved to Gloucester. But maybe next year or the year after that Edinburgh will have another crack but with a better team then what we have this year and lessons will be learn't. But like i said, well played Gloucester, well deserved winners!. :)

What Meakes did was cynical and deserved to go to the bin for it. No doubting the guilt. But is there even any precedence for reds for high tackles?
not only was it high, dangerous, and the guy never touched the ball so all in all correct decision.................good French refereeeeeeeeeing!!!!!!!!!!!

On balance I'd say probably not really a red, but it was nasty and dumb, and dumb [email protected] moves like that are always a risk plus Moriarty's knee to the back was a stone cold red anyway, so no sympathy. You can't really complain that a clothes line to the chin of a man without the ball gets you sent off.

Gloucester played well for much of the game but lack of clinicalness and those 2 stupid fouls easily could've lost them a game they dominated. Edinburgh should feel seriously disappointed they didn't put them away.
