Magners League weekend 12

Is the term interregnum? Anyway between 6 Nations weekends we have another Magners cycle:
Friday
Glasgow 7-30 Cardiff Blues
Munster 16-12 Edinburgh
Ulster 22-22 Newport-Gwent Dragons
Saturday
Leinster 27-14 Scarlets
Sunday
Ospreys 19-17 Connacht
Here’s the table. Top 4 (2 Scottish teams???) will meet in play offs at season end . Bottom Welsh team doesn’t qualify for Europe. A big game for relatively strong Dragons at Ulster tonight as they attempt to avoid that fate. Update – that was real fun to watch in Ulster – and did I really see some Welsh language posters supporting Ulster? What’s that about?
Updated for scores – Scarlets now in real danger of not qualifying for Europe.

    looking forward to to the game tonight – I would be more confident if we can Court playing but with Rory back in the front row I can’t complain too much. Dragons have been great this season so hard one to call. With a few scotish injuries, I wonder how Glasgow and Embra will fare.

    Great game – good back play from Ulster but you should have had 14 sin bins before half time..

    Was at the game so didn#t have the benefit of the TV replays. Hugely frustrating game: too many basic errors, crap kicking, poor forward display and a horrific penalty count. Who else should have been yellow carded and why? Did Rory deserve that yellow? I reckon that’s our play off chances gone now. baaaaaaaaaaaaa

    FBFO – didn’t expect Glasgow to collapse so badly…

    Any number of people penalised close to the Ulster line in the last quarter of first half. Definite yellow for Rory – a pretty daft stamp – ball was dead and totally needless. On the other hand the NGD sin bin wasn’t even a penalty in my totally unbiased opinion !!! (ball was out!)

    to be honest I thought the ball was out too but haven’t seen the replay. looking forward to seeing this stamp – can’t believe rory was that stupid!!! Changed the game.

    game on iplayer:

    welsh player was a mile off side. With regards to rory I honestly can’t see much at all – around 43 mins on iplayer

    Definite stamp although doesn’t look as bad second time round. I still think the scrum half had his hands on the ball when Gomer Davies went for it…

    i’ll take your word for it 🙂
