Toner took a long time to get off his knees there. Guess ball was in play for a fair bit of time there but you rarely see us sliced open like that near our line.

Ridiculously quick game so far.

We could do with slowing their ball up a bit more.

Kelleher doing really well on Matawalu so far.

We know McGrath’s pass isn’t top class, but it has really looked poor so far. A few wild ones, but even the short ones loop in such an awkward way that it looks like the pass takes half a second longer to get there than it should.

Josh Murphy is an absolute brute in the carry. So underrated.

TOB's acceleration twice there was unreal.

Has he doubled in size since last season? Looks in remarkable shape.

Said before the game our maul would be critical. Has been excellent so far.

Josh Murphy took four men to put him down in a ruck there.

Then Tracy came in and took two men.

Well that would warm your cockles on a cold Monday night.

Our best performance since the restart imo.

There's a big wind there behind us, but hopefully we can keep it going in second half. Fardy & Leavy's nous will be vital.

For a lad who hasn't got as rounded a game as Ben Healy, Harry Byrne sure can run a backline...

Massive 40 minutes from Ruddock there. Hope he can keep that up, but couldn't blame him if he can't!
His back row colleagues also putting in a good shift so far.

HB has made a couple of mistakes but should overall be happy with how he's handling the game

Been thinking that. Be nice for him as he’s not the flashy sort who gets those awards easily.

Ruddock, TO'B and Harry Byrne are playing like Monday Night rugby is beneath. Our rucking is superb. Glasgow tight 5 has been brutal though.

The sport that unites Catholic, Protestant and dissenter has had its day of days. Pity anybody who can't enjoy it. Some day.
