Yes indeed another outstanding start to the season with the win in Treviso. Now lets back it up with a win at home to Scarlets. I expect them to comfortably win at home today against Aironi, so they'll be travelling with some confidence to Galway. Nice friendly ConnachtClan greeting for them methinks...... 8)

I don't think we should underestmate the Scarlets, I personally will reserve judgement untill I see todays result !!! I for one think we should have beaten Treviso more convincingly as they were badly depleted because of World Cup commitments.
Still think we can beat the Scallies though !!!! ;D

Great to get the away win yesterday. Having full match commentary was brilliant, although I reckon Rob and Joe were just trying to wind us up mentioning how sunny and hot it was there  ::)

A win against the Scarlets would really set us up for the season and Edinburgh look like they might be in trouble with that thumping they took. 

The excitement about this season just keepings building, next Saturday should awesome.

That's the only thing that troubles me.  Treviso had TWELVE of their players missing because of World Cup selection.  Wow.  I'll take this win, but we still have a LOT of work to do.  Let's make sure we ALL do our work as supporters and encourage our guys to do theirs on the pitch.  It starts this Saturday!

:-\ fantastic win, still seem to have problems going through the phases with 2 mins to go without knocking on and making the last plays back to the wall defence!, fair enough comment about treviso missing players and should beat them by more but I got the impression from the commentry on GB FM that we were unlucky not to get another couple of tries to make the game comfortable, roll on saturday! was looking at our "exiles" playing with leinster, carr not at the races, hagan ok (always welcome back!) and the "retiree" willis (whats the story with his miraculous recovery?)

Yeah, I saw the same thing.  Carr didn't look all that great, but I suppose it's just one game.  He's a good player, but I'm happy with who we have!

Yeah I didn't see Carr but Keats started off on the wrong foot in the Munster game, missing a fairly easy peno. He pulled it back with some solid running and he set up the first munster try by drawing two defenders before offloading to Murphy.

Jarvis left 8 points go a-begging, which could have given us a 19-9 victory. With more accuracy there could have been a bit more comfort. With Elwoods guidance that will improve, just like Keatleys kicking.

Great news all round. An away win, from all accounts a decent performance and especially Jarvis.
