Probably the only match we'll play in where there's no difference in crowd between COVID times and normal times.

I know I keep saying it, but I'm so impressed with Kelleher. Constantly makes metres and huge work rate.

Harry's blushes saved by JOB.

He needs to learn when and when not to throw a pass.

Great play by JOB there.

Jaysus that's some swing! Great try. So clinical.

JOB is a classy player.

Is Shane Williams the co-commentator on Eir? He just called Jimmy O’Brien “Kimmy” O’Brien.

Byrne’s kicks to touch have been exceptional for the most part. Made 50+ meters from the clearance kick after the restart.

Josh Murphy's maul work is so good.

And two massive carries to go with it.

Lovely try again.

H Byrne follows up a shocker of a kick with a brilliant kick chase and a beaut of a cut out pass.

Pretty poor for first 20 and pretty good for second 20.

Our back row and back three has been great. JOB in particular

Milne has struggled a little bit in scrum but his carrying (footwork in particular) is really good.

ROL having a good game too.

Harry is making a lot of unforced errors. He's clearly got star quality but needs to cut them out.

Bit of a wobbly 40 from Harry there - be interesting to see his response 2nd half.

Sloppy performance so far...too many knock ons and way ward passes
Worst ospreys side I’ve seen in a long long time

So many knock ons and poor game management
We’re lucky it’s not a better side we’re playing today, could’ve been in trouble
Still reckon we’ll put 30+ on them if we pick it up

Under 4 minutes from halftime and they go to the corner with a kickable penalty. Only 12 points down.

Glad they didn't take it but a daft decision. Seems the default for everyone.

Super intervention from Bent in the 3rd try. Switched direction taking the offload to hit the space with quick hands.

That's a pretty large trio of front rowers to bring on. Interesting to see how the scrum goes for last 30, particularly with Dev to come too.

Love that quick tap and go from Dan Sheahan. Great weapon for us.

Harry Byrne looks crocked. Needs to come off I think. I wonder if there’s a reluctance to put Hawkshaw in at 10?
