Rhys Priestland's second try for the Scarlets today was immense!

Yeah I caught the second half after my game - brilliant sight when I walked into the club house and saw the score (reminds me of a typical super 15 scoreline).

Was Perpignan playing sh*te or was it just good attacking from the Scarlets?

Damn shame with the Ospreys result but hopefully will have Toulon at home. London Irish beating Munster might work out to save our asses.

Munster were awful. Never seen so many handling errors. Can't see them qualifying, even with their reputation. London Irish were quite average, just allowed Munster to squander opportunites and give away silly penalties.

Treviso are handy enough these days, no longer a guaranteed 5 points

Perpignan's problem was that they were wearing a naff kit today. Instead of the light blue away shirts from last season they had a diamond motif going on which looked like they'd been playing pub golf beforehand. That Llanelli try was fantastic, such brilliant handling. Some other brilliant moments as well, including the brilliant run by Candelon (I think), only to have the ball knocked out from under his arm by Lamont. Candelon scored a lovely try with the chip through.

In the Northampton game didn't Shane Geraghty have an absolute mare with the boot? I heard something about an absolute shank/missing the ball completely? Has anyone seen that one?

JohnF: Saints were generally terrible last night and very lucky to come away with the win. Probably didn't deserve it. Reihana had a shocker with the boot (he missed 6 or 7 - to be honest I lost count); Geraghty landed 2 kicks from the 3 he took, but the one he missed was rather poor. I don't recall him missing the ball.

Oh, and then Myler stepped up and became the third kicker of the game for Saints. His penalty hit first the upright, then the crossbar, and then the linesman's head. One to feature on RD? :-)

Huh!! the 3rd October 10, 2010 1:24 am

Rumours coming out saying Quinlain's career could be over. Really missed him v Irish.

He and McGahan had words the other day. When I say words, I mean fists, when I say fists, I mean Quinny may have popped him 1. Too bad, 1 of the most skillful inventive hard blindsides to have played the game. Any other coach other than O'Sullivan would have had him 1st on team shett every week. 25caps for Ire, bah, All Blacks would've given him 50 odd.

Munster fans have to take blinkers off and realise we're not just good enough anymore. Forwards are braindead, watch tonight's lumbering shit and its worse than last season, backs don't get the ball to do anything. Hayes, Horan, Stringer are huge liabilities. When ROG is your key line breaker(3 I think v Irish) there is a massive undeniable problem. Earls is still injured, Tuitupou is useless, Warrick best option at 12. Maybe the outside backs could get some decent ball then.

Long live Quinny (if true that is)

JohnF, Matthew

It would've been better if he did miss it. I think he kicked the ground 1st. Sky didn't replay it, but thats what it looked like anyways.
