First topic message reminder :

Something is going on this year

Both Glasgow and Edinburgh are playing quite well!

Is it a dream, am I imagining it, am I going to wake up in a cold sweat and find out that we are really cr*p again?

Someone please reassure me!!

Yea Reid has been decent for us, but it has felt like he hasn't fully settled. Glad to read that Dell is an upgrade and the age definitely helps. The profile of our squad has been too old for too long so it is pleasing that we are addressing that.

Hey folks, with our teams' collective chances of making the quarters effectively nil (it's Tuesday, so I'm in emotional-damage-limitation mode), who on here is coming down to Newcastle for the finals?

I'll be there on Friday and Saturday nights with She Who Must Not Be Named, and I was thinking of organising a pub on Saturday lunchtime for a meetup of like-minded people.

Of course, if you prefer to maintain the shroud of anonymity, don't let me stop you... Cool

Mr Bru - quite tempted by that offer. Will need to discuss with the boss but will check in nearer the time.

You never know, it could be Edinburgh vs Little Brother....

So Glasgow announce that Callum Gibbins has been taken out of the Euro squad, he clearly has been badly injured, it certainly looked it at the time. Matt Smith comes into the squad in his place.

Nothing about Matt Fagerson though, so maybe his was not as bad as it looked, maybe just a bad stinger rather than serious shoulder damage. Lets hope so for Glasgow and Scotland sake.

If that happens, I predict a scene an awful lot like the fight in Anchorman.

Rugbypass are reporting that Newcastle are going to be losing a number of players. Two of whom are Scottish locks Davidson and Young. Young is apparently on his way to quins with a deal agreed and to be announced shortly. Davidson is apparently on his way back up the road to Glasgow

We would be very happy if Davidson did come back up to Scotstoun. We have let two of our squad locks move on this season and Swinson is not getting any younger and seems to have other interests on the go as well, which could take him away from professional rugby. There is also the long term future of Johny Gray to sort out next year as well. Davidson would go a long way to addressing some of those issues.

Its tough on Newcastle though, to be losing so many players that they have brought on. Their position in the league can't be helping them in their negotiations with their players.

So looking at your fancy table Bru, Edinburgh will guarantee qualification with a point? 0 points and we're relying on other results?

That's the shape of it mate. Essentially, with a point (again assuming Glasgow get nada) Edinburgh will be ahead of Glasgow in the second-place rankings and too far ahead of Exeter to be caught.

RDW, tonight is one of my rare evenings to myself, yet because of my severely damaged psyche I'm now going to be spending it writing a special Excel sheet showing all 256 potential outcomes of the Edinburgh v Montpellier and Saracens v Glasgow matches. I imagine it'll even have conditional formatting.

What's worse, when I tell She Who Must Not Be Named what I did with my evening, she'll just make jokes about onanism.

Love the word Bru (commenting here just to keep it all together)

I'm lost again though (easy done)

You've got Edinburgh with a possible home QF with Edinburgh getting 3 and Monty 2 or Edinburgh getting 2 and Monty 2

Given that we're 3 points ahead of Monty at the mo, surely if we get 3 and they get 2 then we'll go 4 points ahead of em so sure we top the group and get the home Q/F?

Or is there some weird and wonderful way of determining who gets a home Q/F if say we get 3 (up to 22 pts) and Munster get 5 (also up to 22) in thier group???

That reminds me of the firm I worked at in Glasgow, where I was chatting with a partner in his office, and wanted to show me the networking page for a rival firm. Alas, he accidentally typed in 'kinkedin.com'. I ended up having to confirm to HR that it was all a legitimate mistake, and that we weren't trawling the local listings looking for John Barclay's Chamber of Pain.

You've actually nailed it already bud. The reason it's a possible quarter final is that it depends on how Munster do against Exeter. If Edinburgh get 3 points they'll top the group, leaving them on 22 points. If Munster gets a bonus point win, they'll be on 22 points as well, with a better points difference, ranking them 4th of the group winners and giving them a home quarter final. Anything less than that from Munster will result in them ranking 5th behind Edinburgh and the MFLs getting the home quarter final.

Of course, that logic actually applies to Edinburgh getting 2 points as well, so I'll need to update the table.

Quick question: does anyone have any gin?

Friend of mine presented a final report on an acquisition to the CEO of a major bank who read the conclusion and asked him in what respect his company's position was unusual.

He looked at what he'd written. An 'a' instead of an 'o'.

I think you'll find it was Winkle Crag I was referring to.

Now, I posted this as an oblique reference to Emily Bronte's classic gothic romance and Winkle Crag is where they would escape to. Interesting censorship.

However this caught my eye this morning; Elina Svitolina was questioned by the press after her match in the Aussie Open , not about tennis but about Gael Monfils,

Following her victory, Svitolina was asked on court about French male player Monfils, who was spotted in her box.

Well, you would ask about that if you saw it, wouldn't you?

I struggled with this one last night, but the sticking point was that you're effectively dealing with two tables - pool winners and runners up - from which teams are added or removed depending on results. That massively complicates things from an Excel point of view!

I'll work out the potential outcomes this lunchtime for what happens if Glasgow beat Saracens without a bonus point, but not by enough to overtake them in the pool.

You're right in one part of this...it's not a popular opinion. Very Happy

Chocolate hobnob rules them all, TigerTattie with you all the way on that one

I like a hobnob, but some of you have clearly never had some alone time with a pack of these bad boys.

You can have a hobnob or two and then go about your business, but you have to have an iron will to have just one Fox's Viennese.

I do wonder if we are all too nice on here.

Over on the pro14 slagging thread (I have no idea what the hell it started off meant to be about) they are calling each other names and accusing each other of being liars and how everything is terrible and it's all X nations fault.

Over here we are discussing the merits of different types of biscuit.

EDIT - Eejit:  I've never had a fox's Viennese, but feel obliged to give them a go.

Edinburgh biscuits all have meringue in them and come in a pastel coloured tin from Harvey Nics. laughing

Glasgow biscuits look solid and robust but fall apart when faced with a stronger than average brew.

After the Scotland -Boks match; Bru , Bazza and myself were back in the Airbnb about midnight finishing the evening off with chat over a pot of tea and a selection of biscuits from the late night Tescos on Leith Walk. We all agreed never to mention how we ended a wild night on the town because you hell-raisers would slaughter us Laugh Little did we know we were trendsetters.

Pull the finger out Bru! Very Happy
RDW, tonight is one of my rare evenings to myself, yet because of my severely damaged psyche I'm now going to be spending it writing a special Excel sheet showing all 256 potential outcomes of the Edinburgh v Montpellier and Saracens v Glasgow matches. I imagine it'll even have conditional formatting.

What's worse, when I tell She Who Must Not Be Named what I did with my evening, she'll just make jokes about onanism.
I struggled with this one last night, but the sticking point was that you're effectively dealing with two tables - pool winners and runners up - from which teams are added or removed depending on results. That massively complicates things from an Excel point of view!

I'll work out the potential outcomes this lunchtime for what happens if Glasgow beat Saracens without a bonus point, but not by enough to overtake them in the pool.

Someone I think has beaten you to this IanBru. I can't share it as it's on twitter and I can't access it but it's full of traffic lights and all manner of permutations.

If anyone's interested it's posted by a lad called Kevin Millar and retweeted by EdinBru Rugby

That's the one. Cheers RDW. Not sure if that's what was being asked for initially.
