No imagination, just systems and work rate apart from James Lowe and they don't even want to pick him!
Think Beauden Barrett is probably the only other player that gets me out of my chair any more.
Since Folau went rogue at any rate.
Toulouse were the only side left who play a watchable brand of rugby. The final will be dour.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

I won't be watching it. I was hoping for a Toulouse victory, but I believe Leinster making it to the final is better for us.

Wonder if bod will call out ringrose for an unforgivable mess up of a 5 on 2 overlap.

McGrath's brain fart when the clock went over 40 at the end of the first half was unforgiveable.
Complete game changer. Switched the momentum.
I remember your diminutive scrum half doing something similarly stupid a few years ago. Not acceptable from pro players.

His thinking obviously was push the ball into the Saracens half, opportunity to contest in the air and win back or win a penalty at the following ruck. The player that conceded the penalty giving Sorries opportunity to setup the platform more / equally to blame as McGrath. Sarries would have kicked it off the park for half time had penalty not been conceded.

46 minutes without scoring a point, a drop goal just to keep the scoreboard ticking may have been the order of the day.

No excuse for Billy V carrying four players over the line and still having his arm free to reach.

Saracens always looked the stronger side with Leinster failing to vary their game to keep them honest
Saracens in defence living on the margin of legal with Ijote getting away with an elbow to Sexton’s jaw and there wing nearly taking Kearney’s head off with a straight arm in the air .

But Leinster were never worthy of a win .

Absolutely brain dead and in a game of small margins that was a huge momentum changer giving players 10 minutes to dwell on it.

However that wasn't the only brain dead act on view.
Jamie Heaslip and his wife may be ideal party hosts but I think Cliff Morgan and Bill MaClaren would have generated enough electricity to power the national grid if they had heard their commentary and turned accordingly.

Location: second barrier up, at the half-way line ... or is the third?

Folau went rogue? :shock:

When did that happen?

What did he do?

I'm surprised no one mentioned it. :roll:

Probably ensured cooney travels to the world cup in that moment.

I always considered Cooney was either on the Plane or had a taxi on stand by provided the party includes 3 scrum- halfs .

He may not have the fastest pass or best box kick - but he brings other things to the game - like place kicking - experience at out half ( ok not at International level ) but enough to survive — and his experience is sufficient to ensure he he is unlikely to brain fart or attempt the impossible .

He put a picture of a royal baby being a monkey in the paper I think.
Or something.

Ah, I must have missed that.

And the monkeys were insulted were they?

In that case Folau should be sacked for bringing monkeys into disrepute.
