  1. Hope @Super got to see his hero in action for maybe the final time. At least he'll have more time for commentary and punditry now.
  2. Absolutely stinking draw for us in the Heineken Cup. The seeding system needs sorting out really, we've drawn Sarries and Racing at least three times each in the last few years. You've also got the Champions, beaten finalists from the year before and a team who've made the semi finals for the last three seasons in the same pool. I was hoping for Toulouse or ASM, Saints or Quins and anyone but Montpellier. Lovely group for Leinster though!
  3. Drawn into pool four with Stade, Zebre and Brive. Could have been worse.
  4. Bristol are the unlucky club drawn into tier two with Blues and Stade in tier one. I think they'll want the Blues as their tier one side.
  5. They reckon he'll be alright but missing most of the Tour de Suisse is hardly ideal preparation for a successful title defence. Geraint Thomas crash: Defending champion will be fit for Tour de France - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cycling/48685100
  6. Also worth mentioning that Bristol are the second seeds from the Premiership for the draw. Two of the second ranked teams will be drawn into tier one with the other going into tier two. So one of Bristol, Stade and the Blues will be in tier two and theoretically end up with a more difficult draw. I don't think that you can draw another team from the same league until tier four is drawn, so with that in mind you'd say that a good draw for Bristol would be to end up as one of the first seeds and get something like Blues, Pau and Calvisano. You'd have to fancy your chances of getting out of that group. There are eight French teams involved this season though so you're fairly likely to draw two of them.
  7. I didn't know much about Lam's work at the Blues in Super Rugby, but it became clear very early on during his time at Connacht that he was a class act. I'd say he's one of the top coaches in rugby union at the moment. Bristol are extremely lucky to have him.
  8. Because they stuffed Belgium 5-2 with Seferović (23 goals in 29 games for Benfica this season) scoring a hat trick.
  9. Great effort to stay up.
  10. Can't wait for them to change his action and send him back broken.
  11. I'd appreciate it if Bristol demoralised Sarries for the semi final. Cheers!
