He missed the foot in touch and bottled the yellow for Alex Wootton.

Maybe. I didn’t say he was perfect; what ref is? Just that he’s very good.

Interesting from a league table point of view that the 2 Scottish teams played the 2 big Welsh teams this weekend when both sets were going to lose more internationals than any other part of the season. The least effected teams were Connacht who would beat Dragons at home any time, Kings and Cheetahs. So the 2 Scots' and big Welsh 2 avoided the 4 Irish sides, kings and Cheetahs.

We're playing Ospreys next and Ulster play the Scarlets. What's interesting?

Eh, did you see the team Glasgow put out against Munster last week and even more so against Ospreys? I'm all for playing young players but not half a team at a time combined with 2nd/3rd choice players in the other half!

I know it's all about money but the extra AIs do nothing for the league imo.

Will we even get a medical joker to replace long-term absentee Tomane?...Probably not. How they can feel persecuted by the IRFU when they receive clearly preferential treatment on transfer policy is beyond me.

I thought you were on the wind up, but then checked their twitter... :shock:

No pride, no passion, and apparently no values. :lol:

I must say, I'd never though of Leinster fans as being xenophobic up to now.
The ad features a German guy called Thomas who just loves being a Munster supporter and you think there is something wrong with this?

In a cosmopolitan international city like Dublin it is expected that the supporters, crowd, etc. will be from all over and welcomed. It's not particularly worthy of comment.

Munster on the other hand is trying to import supporters just like it imports players, only the IRFU aren't going to force Germans to play for Munster...

I live in Dublin so I know a bit about it.

This constant denigrating people not born in Munster who might live in, work or support Munster makes Brixiteers sound positively emigrant friendly.

So the supporters who have history with trans-phobic nicknames for their opposition are trying to claim xenophobia?

I don't know what you are referring to with nickname remark, but I think there are a few of you who post on this site who continually bang on about where people are born and if they are not born in Ireland/Munster, they are somehow inferior to the homegrown players, supporters etc.
