No pressure lads!
Seriously: do you believe that? Correct me if I'm wrong but no Pro12 side has won the double. Only a couple of others have.

Thats a pretty good review of our season.

In 2005 - 2006 :P

I think you'll find that Leinster won the double in 2012-13 :wink:

At the end of the day, it’s down to the players on the field and you can’t make them defend. They need to come with the right mindset, and the Cheetahs had a very aggressive one and we didn’t. The damage was done in the first 60.


At least it's good to see Lancaster admitting the mindset was off. We looked completely tuned out from the start, particularly the forwards. Not good enough.

Wasps and Sarries. Not sure any French team managed it. Perhaps Toulouse back in their heyday?

Just saw the Cheetahs first try again. Really, what was Noel Reid thinking?

It was a dire defensive error.

He wont get the nickname Noel Read any time soon with decisions like that!

3 trophies in 8 days, 2 at the same time and in different countries!
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Lovely days out and all, but one of them was worthless, one of them wasn't and I can't make up my mind about the third

Toulon won the double in 2014, and Leicester in the early '00s.

I made only 2 of the 3 Amlin knockout games. They may have been worthless but by god they were enjoyable. Sunshine and champagne rugby in the RDS for the final...and Parisse in the flesh. What more could you ask for?

Sun screen. I'm pretty sure I could have lit the entire Horseshow House off the sun burn I got at the SF. :oops:

Then you would have missed the champagne and Parisse.
Also, it was getting boring winning the Heineken Cup.
