Their rush defence was awesome.
We didn't do very much with the posession we had then played the last 30mins with 14.

Well. It's not rocket science. Especially when your forwards don't win decent ball and your 10 plays like he's never seen a ball before.

All credit to Connacht for the win- I'm not going to argue it was one of those "we lost it rather than they won it" jobs.

Henshaw has laptop stolen, uses find my laptop app next day, brings half the squad, including Marmion for some reason, turn up at the guys house, one of his relatives tries to start a fight with them, thieving scrote's mother complains about them wanting their laptop back to the press

Marmion got the loan of his dad's people carrier so they could all get out to the estate.

7's?

think he's just plain dropped, Muldowney and Dillane their best 2 locks by far, Browne has been playing well, open to correction on this though

If the props are actually fit (not that Rodney ever is) then I think Connacht will win, but if not then I can't see it.

The way Glasgow and Ulster are playing that'd be a fantastic final if it happened.

Buckley would eat Fagerson let alone the sub like a chicken fillet roll but Loughney am not so sure, is he a th covering lh or other way round?

Thought Aki might slide out to let Ronaldson back in, with Henshaw at 15 and TOH on wing for Adeolokun.

But this is a more knockout rugby choice from Lam.

As dominant an against wind performance as you're likely to see. Really can't see Connacht 2016 not winning this
