Think it’ll come down to the tight Five.

We have the magic three in the pack: Best, Henderson and Coetzee.

Having said that, I think it will be tight enough.

Connacht had the edge in the scrum in the league game in October, so that will be an area of interest:

In October: Warwick, Best, ToT v Buckley, McCartney, Bealham

Tomorrow: EOS, Best, Kane v Buckley, Heffernan, Bealham

Same referee.

In the league game in October, Rory had issues communicating with Mr Brace who gave him short shrift. This has been highlighted in the Irish press, so another interesting thing to watch.

We also had 2 yellas in that fixture.

Was that the game where we lost a couple of tries on TMO review due to the scorer being in front of the kicker and Brace subsequently warned if it happened again there would be a yellow?

I'd say roux is as well from a scrummaging pov. Joe always noted his ability on the tighthead side of the scrum. Dont expect us to suffer the same as in October given this and the change in our front row.

Match Day

May The Force be with us!

And for those engaged in summer sports, May the Fours be with you!

And for Rory McIlroy, Happy Birthday and may the fours (or less) be with you, but only on par 5s. May the 3s (at most) and 2s be with you on par 4s and par 3s respectively.
Sadly the days of people using proper English are went

Dreamt we lost because of a try at the Memorial end , scoreboard corner. The grounding was very dodgey.

That's a good omen because my dream predictions are invariably totally wrong :thumleft:

If that's in the second half we must have lost the toss. If we lose the toss, we can start to worry....
