First topic message reminder :

Edinburgh vs Cardiff Blues
Location: BT Murrayfield (on point with my sponsorship game)
Date: Sat 23rd Feb
KO time: 19.35
TV: One of the prem sports channels (you all know the situation on this by now)


In some amazing scheduling, Edinburgh play Cardiff just hours after Scotland play France and even shorter after Wales take on England.

Whilst this potentially isn't great news for the clubs as players may travel to the Int. games, not play and could be released back to the pro sides.  It is however great news for the fans, with a full day of Rugby to watch.

Teams:
Edinburgh -  will be shafted, we've lost half our team to the national side, along with injuries.
Cardiff - I believe are not as badly impacted by call ups, so might be able to field a near full strength team

Frustrating from Fowles - we have 2 big carries and quick ball from the scrum and he stops momentum stone read to point at the forwards

On the replay, he completely missed him, probably just as well as otherwise it was a card

Why is our wide defence so passive? Blues making huge ground every time.

Incredibly comfortable first half - we need to really push on in the 2nd though.

Yep, this blues team has tries in it so we can’t try and sit on this lead. Impressed with the first half performance though. Fowles is playing well, I wonder if we’ll get the chance to see any more of Shiel?

He does not look that big when you see him off the pitch

I wish Dougie would ask him about his injury and when he will be back

He's not looking overly comfortable so far - must be lacking confidence having sat on the bench for 80 minutes every week

Frustrating it came from a knock on that never was.  He should have caught it though.

Not sure where Edinburgh are going to get points from, to make thing worse Mata looks to be carrying an injury.
