Just watched the match. Benneton were really up for it.
We were so so, but some fine performers. Ringrose, R.O.L and VDF were the pick of the bunch for me.
R.O.L was fantastic. His passing was really good and I think he really came out looking good. VDF was great. Ran great support lines and really looks the part out in the wider channels.

Kelleher was very good as was Healy. Healy is just insanely good. It's hard to believe he's this good at 32 years old.
Hopefully Furlong can get back into the side. Lyon will be tough, they don't have to integrate players back in from the rwc. It will be really tough.

Yeah, I was lucky enough to get Wales tickets and have the money taken from the card so I think they're done.

Didn’t he own a horse? Sounds like a northsider.

That's the Irish paradox right there. If you own a horse in Ireland, you're either exceptionally rich or exceptionally poor.

Just goes to prove that there is no serious inequality in this country.

Total lottery this weekend. Lyon could put on an absolute display against us and then go and lose in their away leg to Benneton and I wouldn't remotely be surprised.

Whilst Lyon are only 5 ahead of second in the top14 they are 15 beyond 3rd. Interestingly however there are only 3 points between 3rd and 12th so the chasing pack is basically the rest of the table.

Where they are really standing out is in the details. They've only lost 1 game, all other teams have lost at least 3. Their Points difference is already a staggering +165. 10 of the top 14 teams are on minus points difference with two others on less than +25. Bordeaux in second are on +105 and have one more bonus point this season than Lyon.

The top14 is extremely competitive this year but Lyon have definitely stood apart in the early season. Impossible to know what their focus is going to be and whether they will give the Champions cup a proper run. As far as this weekend is concerned it won't matter, they'll show up and we'll need to be at our clinical best.

Certainly at this stage they can afford to look to Europe a bit given they have some sort of buffer in the T14.
