Connacht vs Edinburgh, Friday 30th September 2016

Post by funnyExiledScot on Tue 27 Sep 2016, 11:29 am

First topic message reminder :

Game: Connacht vs Edinburgh
Venue: Galway
Date: Friday 30th September
Kick-off: 7:35pm
TV: Doubt it
Form: Both sides have been rubbish. Edinburgh are 9th in the league having lost all their games bar one, Connacht have lost 3 from 3.
Likely outcome: One for the purists, but Connacht to rediscover themselves with a healthy bonus point win.

Seriously, the Craggy Islanders must have breathed a huge sigh of relief; a home match against the 4th worst team in the league, what better way to get back to winning ways?

Hodge's first selection and with a wheelbarrow of irony it's probably the best Edinburgh team so far this season. Delighted to see Tovey and Allen back - the team looks better already.

SHC and Tovey is clearly the immediate future for Edinburgh and so I was rather hoping that combination would start. I'd much rather have Kennedy than Fowles the Foetus mind you.

I think there's a reason why we have Press Conferences. If we want this league to grow to even minimum standards, the entrants should all play ball.

Here you go Phil, no rules broken
Scotsman wrote:
Because Edinburgh put forward two players – Damian Hoyland and Solomoni ‘Junior’ Rasolea – to speak to the press on Tuesday (the day before Solomons’ departure), the club is under no obligation in terms of the league rules to organise any more press access this week. That means the latest news we have from inside the camp is that the players are all 100 per cent behind Solomons!

It does seem like an overreaction to ban anyone from speaking to the press though. Hodge will have to field these questions eventually!

Connacht score after some incredibly soft midfield defence from Edinburgh.

It all came from a random scrum penalty - one of those 50/50 ones where the ref guesses

Lovely try from Adeolokun,a nice hand off and Muldoon gave a nice bump to his opposite number to just give him the sniff of a gap he needed.

Connacht doing really well in that scrum, although its messy, but Owens clearly doesn't want to give penalties but instead manage it. Still, hopefully if this keeps up he'll use his whistle.

Great hands by Connacht in the corner

I really don't know what our defensive system is meant to be but in open play it is bloody awful.

Junior Rasolea is a liability at 12!

Connacht get the push on at a defending scrum and win a penalty at the orange break.

So Connacht are fully deserving of their HT lead and have ran Edinburgh ragged in open play.

Edinburgh have had bugger all ball, and the creaking scrum is a real concern.

We need to tighten up defence and get some ball!

Maire Treasa Ni Dhubhgaill leading the halftime inquisition on whether the pass was forward for the Edinburgh try.

I think she's right.

Edinburgh not learning their lessons, regularly giving up possession again, directly leading to a Connacht score.

We really are an utterly abysmal rugby team.

When the Connacht backs get it together they are deadly. Signs of last season''s form beginning to reappear.

O'Halloran in the corner for their third try.

Carty just misses the conversion.

Conor had a real shuv on Sutherland in that scrum, no need for Buckley to angle in.

The guy on the Connacht touchline constantly shouting "EYES UP CONNACHT!!!!!" is starting to annoy me......quite considerably, like "GET IN THE HOLE!!!" levels of annoyance at the Ryder Cup.
