Yep! A bigger unit in the mix. Something that has been lacking at the breakdown in the Ospreys camp.
Sure Tips is quick to get there but he gets pushed off far too easily.
I personally think Tips would be a better 8 than a 7.

Contradiction in your argument?

Indeed, and the other point to make is that AWJ has been switched to blindside not openside. :D

Is this the only game this week involving the welsh regions? :scratch:

Yes I saw that but the bbc site was showing a 'P' against some of the games.

:scratch: Look - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/fixtures

Anyway, your reassurance is worth more than the bbc dodgy web site Keith. 8)

BBC show a game as 'P' when the fixture has been transferred from its original date to another one in the same week end. Hence Edinburgh v Scarlets originally scheduled for tonight, is now being played on Saturday at 3.15.

Basically all Pro 14 sides are owned by the t.v. authorities, and they have the final say in when the game can be played. I can see an occasion arising when we will see a game starting at mid night !

While nice skill, I am surprised that the ref allowed that tap over the rushing defender play by Biggar just then, I remember years back when the Ospreys had a try disallowed after Biggar did the same thing in attack, calling it a knock on.

3 nil at halftime, Ulster 70% possession but a fine defensive play from the O's

It seems I made the right decision to watch Cheetahs v Munster. Munster came back from 10 points down to win 19-17. Decent support from Munster Fans at the game.
