Grenoble looking dangerous in attack but making lots of mistakes when they get into our 22 luckily

Good first half for Edinburgh - 17-13 despite Grenoble looking far more dangerous.

We can't rely on them making mistakes though.

Spoke too soon, we've got the nudge on at the scrum but they are just about holding their ground.

From what I've seen we are lucky to be leading as we've been on the back foot for most of the match.

Yes that's true, however Grenoble are lucky to still have 15 players on the pitch as there was an obvious swinging arm on Bresler who had to go off injured.

I wouldn't worry about the quality of your posts - you've got a low standard to aspire to!

As things stand Edinburgh will face Connacht at home.

The French lad, I assume, has his kicking boots, this is going to be very tight.

Watson on, surprisingly early? Is Solomons under orders to only give Hardie 60 mins?

How many red zone penalties can Grenoble give away without sanction?

Not that Edinburgh would be able to take advantage of any sin bins, but still!

I wonder what goes through the players heads when they switch from Solomons rugby to Barbarians rugby. Alls well though, we've got a kick in front of the posts.

Balls, how many times do you see those hail mary kicks come off?

Last week against the weegies and today. :-(

What does a draw get us if we happen to kick a penalty?

All we need is a lbp I think, but it would mean an away quarter final

Yes ref!!!

We pinged us for changing lanes in the first half so he had to give that one.

Actually looking at the replay he just dropped the ball, they got away with changing lanes in the middle of that maul.

Garner has been refereeing to the crowd's noise the whole game.

I'm sure I saw a knock on in one of the rucks there but my live stream was a bit fuzzy so I can't be sure.

Edinburgh's own Swinson. Not sure who was that. Probably one of Tonks or Helu, they have been utter gash the whole game.

Absolutely, but it is worth noting that this year the winners get a spot in the Champions Cup so it isn't completely pointless.

Direct 4 just put up a graphic saying we are off to the stoop for a quarter final. Not sure I believe that though, do we not finish below London Irish on H2H?

That's not possible as LI got a try bonus win and they have a better head to head against Edinburgh.

From the challenge cup website

"It's all over in Agen and London Irish have won 31-17. That means with Edinburgh not getting a point in their 34-23 defat in Grenoble that the Exiles will go through to the quarter-finals as one of the best runners-up.

London Irish go though ahead of Edinburgh on the head-to-head matches between the clubs (6 match points to 4)."

what a way to snatch defeat from the jaws off, i don't want to say victory but something better than defeat.

As expected our chronic lack of bonus points have cost us dearly (as well as losing!)

The worry is that the same problem will cost us in the league!

My stream cut out as score was 26-23.. Oh dear! That is a big shame.. Really feel like Edinburgh are needing a better 10 and maybe some better backline tactics to compliment their pack. They should never have conceded that 'hail mary' try by Aplon. 4 Edinburgh players to one Grenoble player, jeez. Fair play to Grenoble, they put the gas on straight after conceding points and pulled off a good score.

I don't know what to make of that, we played pretty well, the bits I saw that weren't frozen, defended well but they kicked it up in the air twice and that little dude got his hands on it before any of our players. Basics cost us.

Tonks looked like he didn't want to go for that garryowen so it had to be Burleigh going for it. Appalling stuff. Edinburgh really missed Cuthbert tonight.

In the Pro 12 they are doing things rightly, separating equals team on points by number of wins 1st. This makes a complete mockery of the system and thats why i don't want bonus points anywhere near the 6 nations too.

No reason we should use the same league system in the Six Nations as this competition; we already don't. But bonus points needn't ruin the competition. If you increase the number of points for a win and keep bonus points the same, you can make it mathematically impossible to win all five games and not win the title.
