at 40 nil I went home for a beer and now watching the second half hammering on TV.
The ref should be able to call a halt to mismatches like this.

I’ve always found that they serve beer at the RDS.

You should try some of that hot whiskey too.

Surprised by Cheetahs defeat today. I note that 9/13 of their remaining games are in South Africa with 7/13 on the high veldt.

What do we think of Cardiff's flashing posts, lighting up when a kick goes over? Trialled last April, now seems to be in regular use. https://www.rugbydump.com/news/watch-ne ... e-know-it/ Not to my taste, as it seems to be fixing a problem that doesn't exist. How many wrong calls are there these days. but each to their own.

Only ever an issue if the kicker was putting it above the posts which was rare enough to be fair.

Every chance of 20points from their last 4.

The game in February takes on a different slant what with Ulster likely to provide the entire Ireland team bar James Ryan and Doris.

All we have to do is keep on winning and we'll be ok! :D

Didn't see Ruan yesterday. Did I miss him?

Ruan came off the bench but at that stage couldn't make any difference to the result.

You not read my rugby on the box posts😉

Cheetahs won 31-30 with the BP. Were 30-17 down. Winning try with clock gone. Pienaar came on for last 30 minutes.

Ulster 36, Cheetahs 26, Glasgow 24. Cheetahs play Kings at home next Saturday.
