Rain forecasted for the match tomorrow .... Don't really know what to make of that.

If our pack play as they can it should be fine but I'd say it suits Northampton if anyone

I personally would have been tempted to put Dawai there. It will be interesting to see what happens if Jack can't go the full 80, got to assume Boshoff did not clear the return to play protocol. I think the lads have two good performances left in them for the season, just hope they remember how to do it. Perhaps a viewing of last year's final and a couple of other games is in order.


Agree.
Rain may help Danie to defend, doesn't it,

just equates with sloppiness in all areas this season!

Smell of amateur hour again. Is that Pats fault or Allnuts or both ?

Leader was never in the EPCR squad, so he's ineligible too.

Complete shame.
And I disagree with the EPRC interpretation of the law.
This game is about NEXT european cup, not the current one. Just like Champions League qualification matches.
The squad thing is sillier and sillier

I don't think Poolman at centre is going to win or lose the game tbh. Our back 3 have been equally brutal defensively as our centres this season. I'm predicting a Poolman brace and a late Carty dropgoal to send us to a home final.

It's to stop us suddenly getting an Ulster player on loan for one or two games or any other team getting in an emergency player.

The coaches and management should have known. Terrible forethought, and symptomatic of the season till now

I agree with you. Liam Williams aside, I would like to see Scarlets as champs. Although there is a nasty side to their game.

I think Leinster fans thought they had the semi won already, from what I've read and heard from fans they were saying Scarlets are a good team, but at the same time never really thought it was on the cards that they'd lose, I'd be delighted to see Scarlets go on and win, be the right medicine for the cocky attitude of their fans

Ah lads, bit pretty - I'm hoping Leinster win
That said it's great to see Scarlets play so well and be good for the League for 2 different teams from last year's final
