    wow – the table is pretty tight eh? 5 points separating the top 7 sides! Very difficult to beat sides away from home this year – that said, what about the dragons beating embra! Probably the shock of the week?
    Wouldn;t get too stressed Dewi, the hairsprays are sitting pretty after a poor start so all to play for.
    Thought Ulster were a little hard done by with the scoreline. Started the game really well and dominated large parts of the 1st half. However, we shot ourselves in the foot with the lineout falling to pieces after half an hour. Add to that a couple of missed one-on-one tackes and Munster ran out reasonably comfortable winner. But a another step in the right direction for our young side and I was pretty happy overall with the performance.
    Looking forward now to the international break. Looks as though Ireland are struggling to sell tickets for the ozzie game – a sign of the economic turmoil no doubt. I;ve sold my house and bought a couple of tickets for the SA game so looking forward to that one :). Will be very interesting if ROG can sort out his form and get back into the groove.

    Are tickets still avaialble for the SA game?

    Dewi,

    Kaydiff, with a week team, did really well against LadyBoys, with a strong team, who were quite poor and flattered by the scoreline.

    oops weak team.

  • dewi

    I writ a cynghanedd watching the Ospreys:
    “Yn gwylio’r Gweilch a Glasgow yn y glaw”
    Apart from some minor techical glitches it’s a masterpiece..

    Enough to impress the KKK at the Eisteddfod?

    ‘Are tickets still avaialble for the SA game?’

    haven’t seen any advertised since they first came out so they may be all gone already. If I hear anything different I#ll let you know. Looking forward to NZ-Wales this weekend – always a cracking open game! Might take myself along to Ireland A V Tonga at ravenhill on friday night too – could be a bruising encounter!
