First topic message reminder :

6 games into the season already.


Zebre have broken 2 records at the weekend. First time they won 2 in a row and first time they got a 4 try bonus point. clap


There's already an 8 point gap created between
Glasgow in 7th and Dragons in 8th.


Scarlets and Connacht were the bottom 2 in 09/10 season (pre Italians) but top 2 now.


The bottom 3 Welsh sides have 4 wins between them. All coming against Italian opposition and Ospreys have made their worst start ever and are 19 pts behind Scarlets.


With the internationals now back, expect to see some teams rise up the table.

This could prove to be the biggest lost among Henshaw and Ah You.

I hope Connacht can get Shane Buckley in exchange with Heenan. He is a big ball carrier who doesn't get much of a chance at Munster and 8 is a position of relative weakness for Connacht.

Munster Dragons about to start.

Jack O'Donoghue at 8 for Munster. Sweetnam on the wing again. Archer back from injury on the bench.

JOD is already looking much better from the back of the scrum. It is easily his best position.

Being brutally honest Ah You is no great loss, still looks overweight and unfit

However, thankfully our key players signed new contracts so wont be going anywhere so we can have a good crack at the pro12 next year and even challenge for a European trophy, but we need to make sure that playing in the second tier European competition is a one year thing
I'm sorry to say TR, but I think you're right, it will take a remarkable set of results for us to qualify for RCC 1, not only from us but others as well.
It might not be that bad of thing.. Ok everyone wants to play in the top tier but the challenge cup would present a very real opportunity for the Ospreys to win a trophy. They'd certainly be one of the favourites.

Good result for Munster with the bonus point. And thetve made a positive dent in their points difference with +4.

The catch up game against Cardiff should be interesting.
