It was amazing.

I haven't seen us play that well, well ever!!.

The pressure from the backs was immense forcing many errors for the Dragons.
The first 8 really got stuck in, and hardly gave the ball away, and the lineout was....WOW. Dragons won about 3 or 4 lineouts and we got about 15 I think neare enough that anyway.

Best performance for a vert long time.

Bring on Leicester.

Absolutly digraceful performance by the Dragons! That definately wasn't the same team as last week!

Anyway we can still mathematically qualify if Leicester beats Saints with no bonus points in the whole match and we get a bonus point against Worcester. Simple really

Well done Scarlets, look like they may make it - dependant on Sale's team for the game when they play.


Great kick by Bowen, Scarlet's forwards were very good.

Someone who used to play for them, can't remeber his first name. The full name is the Stoop Memorial Ground.

adrian stoop

and he was the first english player to adopt a wider passing flowing game - he copied the welsh, as the welsh in the early days were the only team to play fluid rugby. as is the case still today

Pleasantly surprised with the Bath performance, even if we had to put up with Welsh commentary on S4Code. Not quite sure why the BBC can't put the games that Welsh TV are covering on interactive or something.

Ospreys looked pretty slick when they got the ball wide, but I think Bath defended pretty well, especially in the 10 mins before half time. Tom Cheeseman in the centres looks like he is going to be something pretty special considering he's only 19 (as is Ryan Davis). Only shame is that he's Welsh, so we'll give him his rugby education only for the WRU to steal him when he starts getting capped.

Oh, and I believe it's called The Twickenham Stoop these days. Not sure why they changed it.

It changed when Quins merged with the Broncos. And to make them look better as it's only a garyowen away from HQ.
