Just had a wee look at the Major League website. Looks like the USA may be starting to waken up to the best game in the world. A sleeping giant awakening?

But they might prefer the original version of rugby ie where people run with the ball in their hands into spaces to get over a line. All the other nonsense of scrums and lineouts etc were later inventions to give all the big fat tall people something to do on school sports afternoons.

And they then had to build a myth of the "dark arts " of scrummaging and second row play to make themselves sound important.

What are your thoughts on Connacht, I don't think we have played them before, pity Welford Road will be empty, but should be an interesting contest, Borthwick has been doing a fair bit of rotating players, so no idea what strength of side we will field.

Connacht play good open rugby, should be a decent game. Interesting that with the heavy Premiership schedule, that there may be squad rotation this weekend. It is a 🏆 after all and relegation has been binned for this season.

Good to watch but can go from great to tom kite in the space of twenty minutes.

Decent pack at full strength but Roux and Butler are out. Possibly Dillane too? Gavin Thornbury is a beast on his day and big Abraham P at number 8 likes to get stuck in.

Like to go wide, two good 9s and Carty at 10 blows hot and cold.

Aki being suspended could be the difference, assuming Tigers field a strong side.

Connacht have had a fairly good season. They should have had a pro 14 playoff spot. They tend to bring their play at their best in bigger games. They usually give Leinster a go. I think they beat them this year. Should be a good contest.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

Cheers for that, will be able to make a better judgement of our chances once the teams announced, as part of the re-structuring, Borthwick has been playing a lot of young lads just out of the academy, lacking in experience, but lads like Martin, Van Portvleit, Whitcombe, Henderson and Steward are all benefitting from the chances they've had. I think there's a long term plan in place rather than looking at each match, though it would seem we sem to have a list of games we target and that includes home games.

SC4 really showing Super Rugby highlights? Fair play.

I might try and watch the final on Saturday morning.
