Anyone know if its on the box, i've checked s4c and surprisingly it's not on (esp a home game when a welsh side is playing) but alas.

According to the pro12 site and the Ospreys site it's not.

So one or the other is mistaken.

Anyway, what more could you want when you've Robs dulcet tones?

i went into s4c tv guide (channel 136 on sky i think) and no rugby for friday night they have a game alright but its Saturday's :))

I'm a bit surprised that they aren't showing hairsprays-connacht cause in fairness to the channel they nearly always show a welsh team in action.



ah well will just have to try justintv or myp2p for pictures so.


thanks anyway lads for trying  ;)

Won't be on Justin or P2P BTWD I'm afraid, they rely on relays of a broadcast of which there are none...

There's no denying that this Ospreys' side at home will be tough, but Connacht can keep it a lot tighter than Ulster did by minimising Biggar's influence on the game.  They must stay on the right side of the ref and cut out the mistakes that plagued them in the first half of the Dragons game.  It will be a moral victory if Connacht can keep them under 25 points and if they keep them under 20 they have a chance of a losing bonus point.

just talked to mark mccrea on twitter. He is not being picked which is why he is not in the squad. What i saw vs scarlets he was flying. Eric what are you up to?

He was great against Scarlets alright. Maybe the try was a stroll-in (but you've got to be there, right?) but his defence and kicking were good too.

O'Halloran is on fire and Touhy was our top scorer last year so I wouldn't argue against their selection, but it's odd he hasn't even made the bench 2 weeks running.

Something a miss there. He was flying against Scarlets, he should be straight back on the wing for Tuohy. He had big personal problems in Ulster, I just hope they haven't crept back down here. That's the only reason I can think of, or else eric doesn't want to change a winning team, and has seen enough of Loxton on the training pitch to give him a place on the bench.

Interesting to see an irish ref since we are quick to point out when its the other way. Ospreys still strong in areas but hopefully we'll give it a go anyway. Out Half and Hooker need to produce more this week!

Standard practice for a season or two, Ref from visting Union. Problem is though that the home union sends two pillars of salt to run the lines... >:(

I've been very impressed with what I've seen of McCrea this year. Very surprised to not see him in squad last 2 weeks.

It's surprising, but in a good way. There's real competition for places now. And with Nikora, Vainikolo and Matthews still to come into contention, in the backs alone, it's great to see.

We need this, we need it to raise performance levels and we need it to give guys a break now and then without dropping a notch talent-wise. The lads were great last year, but they were dead on their feet by the end of the season. Eric rewarded consistency with consistent selections, but we weren't able to give guys a break when they needed it.

And I liked Andrew Trimbles quote about competition for places, you either get bitter, or you get better.
