Biggar's goal kicking since the six nations has been way below his usual standard :-(


What do you expect after 2 months with Howley,when he went to the Howler squad he full of go looking for wins ,then 2months away and came back lacking the "want to win". Never mind Newport lost and still get the big kitty from WRU
Seems that in WRU eyes to want to win is not encouraged,otherwise we would have kept WG and let them have Howley------ sorry I forgot the deal the RL made to let WG just come back part time.

Most likely semi final pairings
Leinster v Ospreys
Munster v Scarlets.

Ulster have an outside chance of getting in at the expense of Ospreys

I agree, Glasgow are just too far back now. Looks like an Irish final.

From that match report on the BBC, it seems that Biggar was concussed after the head injury and can't remember the last 15 mins of the game.

Hope the HIA process was followed...

Biggar mentioned in his post match interview that he didn't really remember the final ten minutes.
It was a poor kick by his standards although his goal kicking was a bit wayward throughout.
Having Sean Cronin step you must have been traumatic too :twisted:

Davies was on the field at that time? Captaincy...

It was a poor game, I thought we would have seen a better standard of rugby today since last week quarters.
The attendance was quite good today along with the weather conditions which you highlighted.

Harsh, handling is good but defences now on top. Sadly think Leinster will pinch it.


Harsh are you serious? When i looked at the clock on 46 minutes I thought we were in for a
long old afternoon. I would not have paid 20 quid to watch that.

It was an incredibly annoying way for the game to end. Why couldn't Davies have taken the penalty shot? Although the Ospreys' performance was certainly better than the previous two weeks (I agree that isn't really saying much though) it still was not quite enough. Ospreys now seem to have the same problem that Scarlets had last season - an excellent start to the season that became wayward to the end due to injuries and off-colour performances. I predict Ospreys will still beat Ulster and the Blues, however, as they are still not so bad to lose to those teams given their recent form, but I now expect a thrashing by the Scarlets unless AWJ returns and sorts his team out by then.

Although no Pro 12 team has ever won an away semi-final yet, who knows if the Scarlets could repeat their heroics against Munster? Certainly not impossible. That said I also note that Munster, who rested a similar number of players to Leinster, still squeezed past Glasgow 10-7. It seems that the two Irish powerhouses are just far above everyone else in the Pro 12 in all senses.

That's 3 loses in a row now, all games we would have expected to win.


Long before the Treviso and Stade fiascos, I predicted Leinster would beat Ospreys - they are just too good.

Hard to be positive anymore, we need to get back to winning ways soon just to make the playoffs.


Ulster and Blues are certainly beatable, but I really do not fancy the Ospreys' chances at Parc y Scarlets, even if AWJ does make it back by then.

why oh why didn't Sam Davies kick that last penalty?? Very odd from Tandy et al.
