    No control on the breakdown at all...

    BT Sport commentators on par with the refs, I reckon
  3. Furball G Furball

    God damn it.

    Montpellier knocking Toulouse out means there'll be more English teams than French ones in the quarters, surprisingly.

    Unlikely to say the same about the semis, but still.

    Munster-Sale looks like it was a really close game.
  6. The Boy Brumby ZJ Brumby

    Both team with only pride to play for and, well...55 point margin tells its own etc.

    So, anyway, Saints, Sarries, Wasps and Bath all made it?

    As Howezers said, be lucky to see one in the semis. Maybe Bath might get something in Dublin (if my "who plays who" rough calcs are correct), but can't see any joy to be had over the channel.

    We'll see. Worst bit is Clermont and Toulon yet again getting the home semi side of the draw.
  8. The Boy Brumby ZJ Brumby

    No North for the Jimmys.

    Not a surprise and, realistically, I'd be happier for the boy's long term health if he misses the rest of the season.

    Hughes missing out for Coventry Wasps after his assault on King's Lynn's finest too.

    Still think we'll be lukcy to see an English side in the semis.
  9. Mariner CL Warrington

    Well he's not playing for the rest of the month now, that's a start I guess
  10. Madness B Morganpola

    I reckon we'll get 2, Sarries and I've got a feeling about Bath, would have been even more positive but they are down to 3rd choice tight head
  11. The Boy Brumby ZJ Brumby

    Looking bad for the Saints.

    10-0 down after 22 mins and Myler hs missed a very kickable chance.

    Abendanon looking very good for Clermont; shame we don't consider French based players.
  12. The Boy Brumby ZJ Brumby

    Nakaitaci over for his second; made from a lovely spin out of the tackle from Fofana and a pinpoint cut out pass from Brock James.

    Who converts to boot.


    Red rover.
  13. BoyBlunder BOY Blunder

    Ripping shit up atm. Madness how much stronger the French league is.

    We don't need Abendanon though, he'd at best be an understudy
  14. Howe JHF Howe

    It's hard not to look pretty good when on the right side of 30-0. Kind of game that's over before it gets as far as the 15.
  15. The Boy Brumby ZJ Brumby

    True enough, but as things stand we're only a Mick Brown concussion away from Goode at fifteen again.

    Who wouldn't have the gas to do that.

    Fuck's sake; getting embarrassing now.
  16. BoyBlunder BOY Blunder

    Im an advocate of just letting Watson go as full time understudy. We have better wing depth (and manu) and Watson did very well against the Italians there. slightly different prospect to Aus and Wales mind

    It's odd that the top 14 teams have dominated at the top end but have been owned in the Challenge Cup. None made the quarter finals, which had 4 Premiership sides.

    Anyway, Saracens leading by a point in Paris at half time.
  19. Howe JHF Howe

    Tighter than tight, this.

    Paris Welsh 11 - 9 Saffacens. 2 minutes to go
  20. Howe JHF Howe

    Racing running the clock down in their own half for minutes at a time and the ref isn't going to be in a mood to let them get away with it. Gun decision
