A lot hangs on this one this pm

Barnes reffing, that should be ok.

Comes to something when one of the first things one looks at is who's reffing :D

Connacht to lose with a BP and they go through. Toulouse are so inconsistent, on paper they should walk it. Money on Connacht to do it.

I think so too ie Conn to qualify although Tlse to win. 4 tries against and no BP for Conn a big ask.
Have to say that they have improved recently and Huget's return to form has been a good effect.

Problem with Tlse is under conditions like today they go balls out to score tries and leave gaps and an opportuistic crew like Conn are ace at taking advantage. Conn are ace at playing in opponents faces too and Tls the sort of team that don't like it up 'em;) ;)

Another blemish is Tlse dont have a kicker!! Doussain effectively lost them the match v Wasps. Their miss record is appalling.

However that's an excellent ball carrying pack and if they settle and control the game they could qualify.

Well worth a watch...

14/3 2 tries Tls

Shocking pen miss again from Doussain.

Conn near line defence keeping'em in it.

Tlse disciplined play but only 2 tries.

Conn scrum good and they remain potentially dangerous in defence.

The first 3 min ball in hand phase from Tlse ultimately led to try and was excellent.

Conn have reputation for soaking up punishment in tbe early rounds and coming back, they have a yellow.

Game very much on ...

Interesting thing about this situation is Toulouse can score a bonus point try to see off Connacht but that would result in them playing Saracens away in the quarters.
