Rugby Opinion

Eight Oh Review logoWorkmanlike 1st half from both sides saw the game ebb and flow. Standouts were Dragons Scrum Half and try scorer Pretorius and Leinsters double try scorer Isa Nacewa whose vision, handling and on field leadership helped the Blues to a 20 - 10 lead at the break. 2nd half increased pressure and a 50 metre run saw Ringrose go within 2 metres of the line before he and MOTM Cathal Marsh scored the required tries for a well deserved BP win. Good day at the office!

Joe Sheppard

Strong performance after nervous start. The 'break' looks like it did Isa good, he's as sharp as ever. Team appear to be playing with more confidence and openness than last season which is to be welcomed.

Richard Collumb

Some good plays but they need a bit of polish. Can see them being a team to be reckoned with when the internationals return.

Cian Ormond

Delightful. I love the attacking intent. Marsh is a lovely player and Isa hasn't missed a step. I know the Dragons' defence was quite poor, but I still think we can feel really encouraged by our ability to carve them open out wide. Also, Ferg's kicking was sublime.
Roll on the good times! :-)
