Final scheduled for May 25, same day as the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden. Could be interesting......

Muppets.

Remember the frenzy around Edinburgh as it clashed with their Marathon. If Celtic are in SC Final (and they probably will - and even worse if its an old firm final)) - then flights accommodation etc. will again be a problem. No joined up thinking here!

And wandering around town in a green jersey might be unwise. I really hope this is not the year Treviso make their breakthrough ...

I suppose if we get there I'll just wear the European jersey. Won't be even a trace of green in that, most likely.

Please God, no! I had to stop wearing the old training jersey (with Bank of Ireland sponsor) cos of people thinking it was a Leinster top (sponsored by BoI at the same time).

Just saw a tweet from the branch with a picture of the new home jersey - looks good. Butler is front and centre in the promo too, so I reckon the captaincy is his. Happy enough with that.

I may be really nitpicking here but I'd much prefer if the crest was coloured in, other than that it's a really nice jersey, but unfortunately don't think I can splash out two consecutive seasons, maybe at the end of the season, but then I run the risk of next season's jersey being even nicer again

Agree with MulMan. The crest not being coloured in is a mark against. It's a nice jersey - kind of a combo of the previous two season's jerseys.

Won't be any issues with hotels for the final even though it's clashing with the scottish cup - the soccer crowd won't be staying overnight. Even if hotels are scarce Edinburgh is less than an hour away. No really an issue but most of the pubs around Parkhead are total dives

The worst thing about the badge is that it's no longer embroidered/stitched.

The sponsors (BLK logo and Murray Timber Group aside) are literally part of the jersey, the badge is gel press on which will eventually find its way off the jersey, and but for having CONNACHT written across the backside it wouldn't have anything visual link to Connacht Rugby.

It's a strange part of the jersey to cheap out on, which is a shame because that aside I really like this and the previous two jerseys. Maybe I'm just being overly fussy but I just reckon the badge is arguably the most important part of the jersey.

I'll finish off by agreeing with you though, not liking the removal of blue/black from the crest.

Remember Cardiff stealing us the game(s) in the end? Sweet revenge, multiple revenge, justice does exist :P.

An incredible set of results :
Week 1: Cardiff blow a 15 point lead to lose against Leinster after min 76th
Week 2: Last minute converted try from Benetton gave them the victory
Tonight: A 79th minute Zebre try gives the Italians the win (Cardiff were leading 0-21, lost 26-24!!!)

Didn't even look at the game. Assumed it was a forgone conclusion. Go zebre. There is something not right at Cardiff
