Fardy's loop with Sexton for the 3rd try was gorgeous wasn't it.
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!

What was fortuitous was MHR missing two simple conversions to help Exeter with the win today. Four points thrown away in a three point game.

Yes, I agree on Exeter’s win and Montpellier’s profligacy - but my point was on our BPs for four tries against MP and Glasgow. Nothing particularly lucky in either case.

8 tries so far. The only fortunate one was Henshaw's.
Oldschool is talking through his crack.
And not the one in the mirror.

They were good value for their AWAY win in France.
They are fit, well organised and have a big powerful pack.
They will analyze us well and exploit any weaknesses.
Both games against them are going to be tight.
Currently we have the advantage with two, slightly fortuitous bps and they could turn out to be very valuable.



Are you off the medication recently or something OldSchool? Coming out with some mad shit!

Reading the match reviews this morning reminded me of something: why was Sexton booed so much when he came off?

Scottish fans just really seem to dislike him. No idea why though.

It may well all come down to our match there in January. Leaking them that LBP last week may have huge repercussions. Remember our relief with ours last year.
Just saying.


I hope Glasgow don't give up on the pool. I don't think it will do them any good for the league by getting thumped in Europe. They should at least treat their home ground as a fortress and can take confidence from winning a few of the remaining games, especially given that everyone playing them will be going full tilt. They can still spoil the party which would give some satisfaction.

The difference with our BP in Montpellier last year was that we also kept them under 4 tries.

They tend to not like him because he has a loves to have a bit of a whinge. Pretty hypocritical of fans who cheer for the team Hogg plays on but I digress.

I think the straw that broke the camels back was the penalty Sexton got for the early tackle just before he was subbed off, totally legit penalty, Sexton made damn sure they officials knew about it (not a criticism, just an observation)

Also props to Johnny for getting the last word and sarcastically clapping the Glasgow fans as he was subbed. That was beautiful :lol:
He's gotten awfully fond of that brick

He has really fit in so quickly. I watched it another couole of times, it's like he's been playing with us for years. His style of play really compliments ours.

As has been mentioned he wasn't booed initially.
His constant whingeing, arm waving for pens at every ruck, perceived time-wasting etc caused it.

Why does Hogg never get booed then? :wink:

There was one kick where you could have gone and made a cuppa while Johnny redid his hair, checked the angles, gave the ball some side eye, gazed lovingly at the posts, checked the hair again. But he often does the same thing when we’re losing.

He's allowed take as much time as the ref allows him to take.

I hope every team this season gets to boo Johnny because, generally, when you're booing your losing.

Except in Belfast, that just means you're awake. Or asleep and sleepbooing.
