Clermont being reeled back in. Great game to watch, and Brian Byrne is having a good game.

Thought Byrnes throwing has looked very good! Although reeled back in might have been optimistic :lol:

What's this "star of the match" nonsense?

I think it's to do with the Heineken logo.

Leo and Caster have got the selection bang on.
The international returnees were over played and perhaps even over trained.
The biggest fear is that Sexton and Ryan aren't fit.
If Sexton has to play more than 30 minutes then we'll have a problem.
Ryan's form has dipped, the three most common reasons for this are a loss of form/confidence, fatigue from over use and thirdly he's carrying an injury.
Have a vague recollection of him being injured, having a small op and maybe has come back too soon.
On a more positive note, it's squeaky bum time but we might just about nick a win.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall who's the greatest player of them all? It is Drico your majesty.

Plenty of away wins this weekend! Here's hoping Leinster add to that trend.

Regarding links for the game, vipleague is definitely not the site I use every week for watching rugby

Harry Byrne in for Sexton

You want to have Sexton, I can see the benefit of there being 3 outhalves in a 6-2 split, barely.

But with Sexton out you already have Frawley covering Byrne. Bring in an outside back.

Good start — penalty advantage from the scrum was excellent. Good try. Ruddock’s carries have been noticeably excellent so far.

The angle of the camera for those side shots is very disorienting. Much lower than usual.

Luke M like an extra backrower so far. Brilliant.

Few poor errors so far. Ross missing touch and two poor lineouts.

Other than that we're flying.

Trend of our line out being pure shite continues. Two lost just outside the Montpellier 22 so far. This is a serious problem for us against any half decent team.
