Dan says he's spoken and got good feedback about the penalties from last week, and it's not something they have worried about.

We were at fault this week for our penalties, not last week.

This is the worst fake crowd noise.
Did you not watch the Wales Italy game?
Turned the sound off when Rome was sounding like Cardiff.

Tonight's was pretty woeful too though.
Sadly the days of people using proper English are went

Dan in his post-match interview excellent again. Very clear that the amount of penalties conceded last week and this week had no connection - ill discipline by Ulster this evening, last week the discipline issues not from Ulster.

Good learning night for the youngsters. Dragons are improving and had their big hitters out but without the serious skills to hurt us. Reid, Moore, izzy, mccann will all be better for it again.

A good five point win. Should never have been as close but I have to say that their intercept try was better than ours.

Dan is working wonders with our set piece, bit our forwards are so so soft.

If Lowry can handle someone with the carrying ability of Jamie Roberts coming down his channel I hope any questions marks over defence at out half have been silenced once and for all.

Lowry makes tackles that belie his diminutive stature time and time again.

The years may have caught up on Roberts but he's still a world class carrier.

Shanners was a waste coming on tonight, Doak could have done with the last 20 minutes.

No disrespect to Dave, he's an honest pro, but 20 minutes tonight for Doak would have helped him grow.

His defence was decent.

Young Smith at Quins is a proper operator, very good player. Roberts is still a decent pro at his age, but not in same league.

And his darts weren’t bad either - I thought he had a good game - but remember Brad’s only 25!
Hope is not a strategy.

Lowry is not a second or third Humphries just a miniature Paddy Wallace to brave for his own good

The pack is underpowered. It lacks a bit of muscle. Without Hendo and Marcell it lacks that momentum building hit or carry. They are natural enforcers. That's why I'm so dubious about Nakarawa signing as he's not that type even if he's in the mood. Next season we will have Marcell and Vermeulen coming to play with no doubt other monsters in the pack.

I was referring to Jamie Roberts taking ball and crashing down Lowrys channel looking reward.

As for our Bradley Roberts, whole heartedly agree with you Hans, theres energy comes off him I feel the team feed off. His darts were excellent. Where does that leave McBurney?
