No amount of curry proof clothing could convince her when I'm pretty sure her auld lad would disown her!

You could gently suggest to herself that if she was to fully commit to Connacht, the green attire is great for concealing curry stains :-)

Ah Bazzo, 'twas yourself! Personally I don't remember being that nice but at least I didn't spill curry chips on ye (or myself, I spent more time watching that sauce than I did the first ten minutes of the second half).

We turned down 4 or 5 kickable penalties to go for the corner, all of which came to nothing. And lost by 10 points. Disappointing.

Was let down by some of our fans yesterday too unfortunately, my girlfriend (from Carlow) was with me, when two lads on the way into the stadium heard her they told her she wasn't a Connacht supporter with that accent and she said she was from Carlow so more of a Leinster supporter they started making pig noises and saying "d4" to her. A) that doesn't even make sense and b) that's not "banter" it's just being a tool.

Finlay on social media

Tough night. Gutted to come off in the manner I did but I’m blown away by all the support I received from everyone. Thank you. Thankfully it isn’t as bad as first thought, no broken bones or torn ligaments. Now it’s a waiting game for the hand to heal. Can’t wait to get back out on the pitch with the lads to finish off the season in style. #strongeringreen

Anyone around Manchester.
Any good suggestions to watch the Munster and Leinster/Ulster matches?
A lot of soccer on today.

It was his first game for Connacht in almost 5 months, very very unfair comment.
Bealham was in agony, looked a very serious injury.

Sale did not have their strongest 15 out and we were so bad in the first half that I would not agree we should have won

Watched game with a nurse, saw Finlay puking with the hand on ice, said 'fracture'. Hope not; wish it ended 5 minutes sooner.

A man that’s played one game since November ..... gone backwards? You have obviously never played sport at a competitive level.
Biggest worry is Finlay doesn’t look good and DMVC or Carey are competent but not at his level .
We need Farrels creativity big time and Blade has to be putting serious pressure on Marmion
. No excuses no re focus ... need to go to Italy next week and make a statement. Easier said than done.

Well, what could’ve been. If jack had managed to get that first break over the line. Mind you, sale totally switched off in the second half.

Thoughts with Finlay, looked like a bad knock.

Sale better side on the night in fairness. Enjoy, the travelling clan.

Back to pro14 next week.

Jack may not be that bad, could be a stinger. Happened in first half.
Sale are ok, but rely so much on Faf de Klerk. What a player! His kicking is awesome, by far best SH in world right now.

Really think we could have won that if we'd had a full deck out, but not good enough from those who were there, ref really lost control of things there at the end, injuries to Jack and Finlay very worrying.

Good response this half. Sale have dropped off, but poor accuracy from us.

Sale on the borderline but our passing is slow and often behind players, losing momentum. Amazing if we turn this around. McGinty kicking is outstanding

Not the best half of rugby I've seen from our men so far.

Jacks positional kicking isn't quite spot on. They're definately live to the threat and have men back covering the whole time.

I'm not sure if they have a massive line speed or are cutting it very fine with the offside. It's working for them anyways.

We're defensively a bit suspect out wide.

Gonna be a tough second half.
