Edinburgh totally outplayed Cardiff, especially among the forwards, to win 34-10.
Cardiff looked like a group that's not been playing together with a big lack of fitness. To be honest, Edin are also in good form with a bit of momentum. Cardiff need some rugby under their belt, hope it doesn't take long to get back to fitness.

Hope Botham is OK as he's been excellent the last few games. Imagine that incident will be a ban for the Edin player after the game having looked at the replay.
Early days but Mike Blair is showing every sign of being able to build on Cockerill's foundations and be a suitable national coach should Townsend falter. Very encouraging for rugby in Scotland to appear to now be developing coaching talent through to the top level after a lòoooooooong wait.
Glasgow doubles up the Ospreys. :) We Are Warriors!

I'll post in here as it relates to this round of URC.

Great win to get over Ulster there. To win a game where we went behind early and then had a player (rightly) red carded is a great achievement. Beirne was by a distance the best player on the pitch. Ahern went well, Casey grew into the game and Coombes carried so well. Young Wycherley was great off the bench and I have big hopes for Kendellen. Nice for him to get a try, albeit a lucky one.

With that said our discipline continues to just be shocking at times. Our attack picked up a bit, but so poor at times as well. Selection as well, I've already said it but we need to move on from some players.

As for Ulster..... Don't know how they threw that. Went into their shells a bit when Zebo went off honestly. Yeah we defended well, but the winning of that game was that our pack started to beat them up. Doak is very talented, but they lost something when Cooney went off.
