Pool One, Round Four
Sean O'Brien is looking forward to facing the Northampton defense again.
What Northampton defence?
I'm expecting a big Northampton performance, I recon we'll only put 35 on them this week.
Anyone know how the sales for the Aviva are going really hoping for a good atmosphere.
no doubt about the winners here. Castres have been one of the most incredibly different teams at home and away. And hoping for a nice show from Leinster again..

ehh, maybe Castres will actually show up out of the blue for this and push the Ospreys to the limit after all...
Rhys Webb v Rory Kockott... Close call between them.
I'm not sure of the exact figures but it's above 40,000, I reckon a decent amount of Saints fans will travel so it should be a good atmosphere if good rugby is being played.
As long as we are not a ****e as last week you might get a bit of atmosphere. I would not hold your breath though. Our boys seem to have pulled out of Europe a year early.
Cian Healy out for 8 weeks and will miss 6N (start anyway!)...!!
According to someone generally in the know on Leinster fans it will be shorter period of time than that.
I am liking the way Castres have started and this could be a good game!
Please can someone explain that penalty for Ospreys to me........
Castres player came straight through the middle of the ruck and the Osprey 9 clearly had his hands on the ball yet the Castres player was penalised?
Ospreys playing some good stuff........v entertaining!
Wouldn't know. Watching the Blues v Glasgow match in Pool 2....(you know, the one this thread is titled as? )
Posts moved to appropriate thread. What was TalÃ¨s binned for?
Playing ball in a ruck off his feet after superby running move from Ospreys stopped on Castres 22..............
Thanks. Have this match on one screen and Cardiff on the other. Multitasking...
Have to wonder about the commitment in Wales to rugby when you have the French Champions with near enough their best team out and the stadium seems about 25/30% full.............or am I missing something?
Friday matches are always poor, but this current rugby situation is not one that is attractive to the public. Welsh fans haven't bought the regional products, and inferior performances don't help.
