    what say you.
    are we really 1/8 better than the kings?
    badly need a result in this one!
    same back line as last week minus TOH.
    must have taken their tablets this week.
    hon!

    That try should settle the nerves a bit. High tempo so far.

    Jaysus Connacht are static

    Lot of huffing and puffing but not an awful lot happening in this game...

    Poor try to concede by connacht but good response. Even taking the ball slightly on the move made all the difference

    Thought Carty kept possession there myself

    Me to.

    Have to say I'm very disappointed with the South African sides so far it looks like two Zebre/Dragons standard sides and two more whipping boys is really not what the league needed.

    Connacht looking like a better drilled more cohesive team this week. Hope they can keep it up

    Strong finish to the half. Connacht winning 24-5. That Kings try really woke them up.

    Positives Scrum is going great, Carty taking his kicks at goal, seeing Leader take kicks to touch, lineout functioning well enough.

    Negatives. The try Forwards not taking contact on their terms outside opposition 22, lateral play in general not taking the ball at pace too much static starts. Better team will crucify all that.

    Didn't think there was much in that, hardly any contact. But in the letter of the law. Hope poor teams aren't going to be given the benefit in all close card decisions


  • Registered Users Posts: 257 ✭✭ Iompair


    Been poor the last 15 mins, since the penalty. Need to calm it down and get the 4th try.

    Kings were very good until they got into Connacht's 22. They coughed up the ball countless times in the redzone.

    Judge them in two years rather than after 2 weeks of playing away matches against sides expecting to make the play offs this year.

    I've never wanted to back a campaign more in my life than getting the "Nananananananana Leader" chant up and running. I think it was somebody here that came up with it too. This has to happen.
