Dissapointing result. Seemed like another one of those games we could/should have won similar to Edinburgh away last year. Need to get over that loss quickly though Dragons will be a tough game next week. Injuries to Ah You and George are worrying.

Nikora is not yet fit so we have to play people who are!!!!! their confidence will be really high if they happen to read this forum !!! can't be doing with people who slag young players off !!!! Humphries missed five penalties in the first 30 minutes against the Blues (he is not a young but experienced player), he doesn,t get slated because they won the game. Had they lost it would have been a different story, Jarvis missed two,NOC was charged down, so what !! if we would have won the game then they would have been hero,s.
Stop bleating about the youngsters !!! they are on a learning curve the game was not lost by the penalty misses but the lack of drive going forward, when you put teams under pressure and tries go begging then you cannot blame your place kickers.

Calm down, Greendragon.  Everyone has and is entitled to their own opinion here.  As for the players reaction to criticism...they're professionals and grown men.  It's not kids we're talking about here.  Take a deep breath and calm down.

Briefne, I am very calm at this moment in time, just getting my point across. These youngsters will be the backbone of Connacht rugby for the comming years so let's give them a break !!! I didn't hear any body slagging Gavin off for handling on the ground !!! now he is an experienced player, but his experience was bugger all use to the youngsters when he was in the bin !!!
Just trying to put things in perspective, no teddies thrown, just making the point.

I'd agree with Greendragon in that it's way too early to be getting on the back of any individual player. Kicks get missed, and even commentators as experienced in rugby as Joe Healy don't fully understand the small margins that make the difference between a good kick and a narrow miss even if they look straightforward.

We had 80mins to win this game, we didn't adapt to the refereee for 60-65 mins losing or captain and one of our most experienced players for ten minutes as well.

In the end we really only got on our bikes when the game looked lost, obviously without TV very hard to judge but it didn't sound like we were looking for the win, but more concerned with not losing.....

Very fine, Dragon...just try and remember everyone has their own opinion.  I won't ever tell you not to voice yours, and I hope you'll commit to the same.

Don't really see anyone doing that here.

In fairness multiple exclimation marks at the end of a sentence don't give the indication of serenity, much like POSTING IN UPPERCASE... :))
