Our C team v their B team. Will take that

We were down to 4th choice in some positions and Cardiff were at worst down to second choice in some. We had guys playing 75 minutes as well. Yet we played almost all of the rugby. We were the only ones who looked like scoring tries. And we won, denying them the LBP. That was a pretty good result in fairness with some encouraging performances. I'm quite happy with where we are and where we're going. If not for the incredibly impressive boot on Rhys Patchell then Cardiff would never have been in that game.

Van Der Flier looks like a real player. Great carrier and works his arse off. McGrath getting better too, albeit pass is still slightly ropey. Good to get a win on the board.

Shane O Leary

Scrappy, messy, but we came away with the points. Improvement on last week, that's all you can ask.

Andrew Byrne

Definitely an improvement on last week. Intensity was raised, a bit more urgency at times too... Good to see. As others said, if it wasn't for Patchell, Cardiff would have been nowhere...

Damian Scott

Got there, for all the ball we had we did not look like opening them up. At least he has got them playing together with some energy and spirit.

Pádraig Turley

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
