    That's a very strong Gloucester pack. A 4-1 loss here to keep it alive for next week wouldn't be a disaster.

    But I wouldn't be surprised if Connacht sneak a win, Gloucester have never been able to put anything together in Europe.

    Remember chaps, just say no to Dougie.

    Connacht players have an unreal ability to lose the ball in contact far too easily

    Thank you for the thread, Jump!
    I was 100% focus on the game itself.

    Not the greatest one of course, but without the intercept try... Not a disaster anyway. We can give them the back of the coin next week, take the 5 points and still have (slim) hopes

    Connacht defended poorly, imo. Thought the were giving up lots of ground in the tackle. Roux was poor. Didn't carry much and I think he should have been a guy to use to gain momentum. Dillane not starting was baffling.
    Thought Blade was good and Carty was a mixed bag. I would expect a Connacht win next week. Definitely a lot to work on.
