It's for McQuilkin, their Kiwi coach has had to return back to New Zealand due to family issue's. They raised money for him with a 'shave or dye' event.

A really nice gesture, and I'm glad it's not a new Irish fashion trend!

No, it isn't really tolerated. Sure look what happened to Madigan Very Happy

It is quite a lot to take in combined with the strips though!

Sounds like an epic game, it sucks to be stuck in work... I'm guessing Seymour is still in good form - great news with the Lions tour coming up. #ScottishRepresentation Wink

This "bespoke" pitch allows for some fantastic running rugby. 8 tries and the game hasn't finished yet.

I am watching a bad online feed and in the time it took to move from the scrum starting to the next 10 seconds of play, yerman from Nashville had scored again. Can't wait to see the highlights at real speed.

Looks like this 4G pitch is going to make for some cracking games. Just imagine what we'd have done with Matawalu and Nakarawa on it.

I bet Seymour does not even go on the lions tour let alone get a game no matter how many tries he scores. He doesn't play Gatlands way

Delighted with that. Lots of players have stepped up - guys like Puafisi and Johnson whom I didn't necessarily really rate last season have started to look like very good quality purchases. And Alex Dunbar has gone for 2 games without being injured, which is nothing short of miraculous.

Let's not lose sight of the fact that Leinster will get the likes of Sexton and Sean O'Brien back. Ominous for the future, but we should enjoy the victory now.

Will watch the whole game if it's posted anywhere.

Completely agree - the Pro 12 gets a lot of bad press but there's a hell of a lot good about it too. This game was fantastic and played at a very high level.

Shame that the same couldn't be said about the Edinburgh game last night...

According to Jim Neilly on BBC NI, Connacht have just beaten Leinster at Scotstoun.

Very generous of you lads to let them use your home ground.

Although Edinburgh continue to be the red-headed stepchildren of the league, the Cardiff-Miunster game was of the highest quality. I can't remember so many good coaches working in the league at the same time. We're in for a cracking season.

Swapped Seymour into my fantasy team for Piutau who's injured this week.

Just checked- didn't save the transfer. Absolutely spitting. Raging. Cannot believe it.

I hope for everyone's sake that doesn't turn out to be true. It would be hard even for stubborn guts to ignore Seymour in this form.

A mention for Lacey? Not a single controversial decision? I thought he was a bit lenient at the breakdown - the ref from Edinburghs game would have given a lot more pens for holding on but he was consistent and missed nothing much.

Well shows you what I know. Leinster looking like they are getting their act together. I predict a top 2 finish for them. Their 10 looks like a great player. The one surprise for me our (Glasgow) scrum. Are we actually developing into a decent scrimmaging team.

Lacey had a good game by his standards.. He was consistent, didn't have san obvious howlers and his mistakes balanced out. I thought he managed the breakdown well. If the ref who done the Edinburgh game had been in charge it would have been 7 a side.

Pitch looks great.

I agree to an extent but these were 2 teams looking to play positive rugby in good conditions, so whatever the ref it probably would have been a good game.

Edinburgh v Scarlets could have had Nigel Owens as ref and it still would have been turgid!

Thats been my experience of every game I've watched so far this season. Ulster have had a relatively 'soft' start to the season playing Treviso and Dragons but even those two bottom-half teams are looking to play with a lot of tempo and with ball in hand. I am yet to see Edinburgh play this season, but based on what I've heard about them they are probably the only team in the league who are not playing quite a fast, open game. Them and Munster, who are playing to their strengths in the pack and in the air but even Munster realise that you have to get the ball through the phases really quickly if you want to do anything in this league. I believe the Pro12 may well turn out to be a very compelling league to watch with a lot of very positive, attacking rugby played. The order of the Top 4 going to be decided by TBPs in my opinion. It's going to be very close.

Based on what I saw of of Treviso yesterday, Edinburgh would want to watch their back. Could finish as low as 11th. Treviso could crack Top 10, Top 8. They have improved immeasurably. This is going to be a cracking season with battles all through the table. Already I'm worried for Connacht- to get a top two finish you can't afford to drop more than 4 or 5 games all season and they've just been comfortably beaten by two of their playoff rivals. A good start is essential- this could be a case of the Men of the Wesht coming back to earth with a serious bump.

And finally Glasgow were given a really tough start to the season- playing against both of last years finalists. Were they worried? Not a bother on them. 10 points, top of the league. Already looking like favourites for the title. Can't wait to see Ulster pip them to the post against the odds Wink

Unhappy we  didn't get the LBP but encouraged by a lot of the things we did in the match.Carberry has had a strong start to the season so lets hope he kicks on.Our attack looked much better and far less predictable than last year and we were missing maybe 8 of our starting team for that match.

The defense was pretty strong overall although it got weaker as the game went on and legs grew tired,2 of the tries were due to our own mistakes and Glasgow will score tries against everyone on that pitch.

There is a lot to improve on but it does look like we're improving which is all you can really ask for.Oh yeah Cian Healy also looks like he might be returning to the player he was in 2013.If we get him back near that level we'll be a difficult team to defend against.

Out of curiosity, who were Leinster missing? Seems like they put a good team out with a few regulars available. Given the chat last year I thought McGrath is ahead of Boss, and Ringrose now a starter.

1.McGrath 2. Strauss/Cronin 3. Ross
        4. Toner
6. Ruddock              7. O'Brien
             8. Heaslip

           10. Sexton
                      12/13. Henshaw

Those would be the starters we were missing although if Healy continues on the form he's shown so far he'll get the no.1 shirt back imo.Boss has left so Mcgrath and Gibson-Park are fighting it out for the 9 shirt.

Oh I see. Yep those are definitely some good players to come back in, but I remember a time when Leinster could stull turn over most teams without those players. It's been a good opening two weeks so it will be interesting to see how Leinster do when those guys come back in.

Oh yeah those days were great but we're not at that level anymore unfortunately.I'd also say that Glasgow aren't "most teams",they're a really good side and I hope they finally show it in Europe this year.

The other players will improve the side although our weak points are in the backs so they won't improve it that much,the main thing that will improve is our impact off the bench.We faded in the last 20 of this game so a stronger bench could make a huge difference.Our attack looks far better than last year too so hopefully whatever we've changed will click a bit more as the season goes on.

I edited the last post to put in Henshaw,don't know why I had Ringrose there.

Been some tough draws for Glasgow - this years group will be very difficult to get out of. Last year Bath got a disillusioned French team away who were out of the comp and beat them easily, When Glasgow came to play them the french guys had been told they were playing for their contracts and they played much better then Bath gave Glasgow a lesson in tactics and ball retention.

This will not be Glsgows year 'cos of the pool and Glasgow are weaker than last year.

Been some tough draws for Glasgow - this years group will be very difficult to get out of.  Last year Bath got a disillusioned French team away who were out of the comp and beat them easily, When Glasgow came to play them the french guys had been told they were playing for their contracts and they played much better then Bath gave Glasgow a lesson in tactics and ball retention.

This will not be Glsgows year 'cos of the pool and Glasgow are weaker than last year.

Agree, but nowadays it's always a really tough draw. I do believe that Glasgow have the firepower to do well though. Who were they grouped with last season? I thought it was Scarlets and Racing, not Bath.

Why'd you think that?

Losing Nakarawa was obviously a blow but other than that I'd say they're looking a better team.

Sarto is a huge improvement on Naiyaravoro, Lamont or Jones.

Getting through the group will be a tough ask but wouldn't write them off in Townsend's final season in charge.  Could end up being quite an open group.

Glasgow's failings in Europe have generally been because of the pack - they've been bullied by the big boys meaning the match winning backs haven't been able to get any ball.

Is this year's pack any better? They've started the season well but Europe is a big step up.
