Ospreys did what they and lots of other welsh teams including our national team does.

They stormed into the game, took control of it, then relaxed took their foot off the gas, and allowed the opposition in.

it is for THIS reason we will never see a welsh team at the top of the european pyramid (although second round would be nice :D )

Whereas the much maligned National Team, amateur(ish), of the 1970's would come from behind and win...

bringing the Yanks in off the bench was a masterstoke, maybe Howler should take note :angry4:

that was't that far off a starting team and the best the could pick. Matevasi usually starts at 12 but injured so wouldn't be available regardless. some say beck should be in the welsh squad so adequate replacement there. lydiate at 6 has been missing most of the season. webb is the starting 9, but again has missed a lot of the season.

and there's some who think sam davies should be starting over biggar anyway. so really it's only awj and tipuric from the starting team that biggar has played with all season. O's have played some really good rugby this season, but when ever they've come up against the top teams, they've come up short. and happened again.

basically they're probably in the right position for them in the league. losing to the teams above them but beating the teams below them.


I actually fancy Scarlets to upset Munster this coming weekend, because (a) Scarlets will feel fresher having merely faced Zebre, whereas Munster v Ospreys was a lot more intense and physical (b) Scarlets, more than Ospreys, fire themselves up for big matches (but are much more shit at dealing with 'minnow' teams) (c) in recent seasons, Scarlets' record against the Irish sides has actually been better than the Ospreys' record.

Loads of teams have gone to Thomond that fancied there chances, each left with there tail between there legs. Munster played 3 champions cup games in a row and won all 3, don't think fatigue will hurt Munster plus they will likely rotate anyway.
