Nice try there for Toulouse. Any of you feel sorry for Bruce Craig?

3rd try now for Toulouse 12-21 67mins. Bath could be cannon fodder in this pool.

Edit 71mins gone

Finishes 21-19 to Toulouse. Two defeats from two for our evil overlords this weekend. It's what the fans want.

Historic? We beat a team we've never lost to in 5 matches! :P

Although in fairness, that is a very different Montpellier side from the one we beat in Carcassone in the challenge cup a decade or so ago...

Priestland having nightmare for Scarlets. After missing 3 kickable pens. A 1/3 full Parc Y Scarlets by the look of things.

HT 8-3 to Scarlets, but they missed out on 11 easy points from kicks.
1/3 full is about right. If they cant do better than that when a giant club like Leicester come to town in the Heino then I just don't know.

true but leading 8-3 at half time with 4 missed kicks. leiceter kicking everything away while scarlets run it from a retreating scrum on their own line.

Leicester are an embarrassment this evening. I have seen half time minis with better handling skills.

All over. 15-3 Scarlets. Leicester were truly deplorable. That kn*b Liam Williams actually had quiet a good game.

He and Paul Burke are meant to be working together. Not sure exactly who is responsible for what but Leicester look like there is no coaching of either. They either kick the ball straight back to the opposition or knock on after 2 phases.

The standard out there tonight was truly awful, especially Leicester. The amount of errors from them, I never seen it, they have such high standards, appalling. Scarlets would have won by 20 odd points if the could take their kicks.
Still, one more notch on the bed post for the P12.

As I suspected, Ospreys have been flattering to deceive in the P12, Munster are a lot better than their results have suggested and Glasgow are the best team in the league, by far. Ulster are nowhere without Ruan, and we are simply nowhere. Still hoping though.

Are Clermont cutting their budget, going from (at the time) Lions starting full back in Lee Byrne and replaing him with Englands seventh(being nice) choice full back option in Abendenon, granted Byrne was falling off, but to replace him with Abendenon shows a lack of ambition. They also look underpowered all across the park, they are making heavy weather of a shite Sale team.
