Not sure if anybody is as hard done by refs for good jackals as Bundee. The second one was probably 50/50 but he got pinged for an earlier one that was completely legitimate. And it happened at least once against Cardiff too. Seems to happen at least once every match he plays.

Also has to be up there for most maul tries scored by a back? :D

We didn't make it easy for ourselves, did we? Real grit and determination in the last ten - Bundee made the team take a massive step up.

Quite a bit of "aimless" kicking. You'd think that the hope was that Benetton were going to buckle under the pressure but in fairness they were very sharp. They kept a hold of the ball, worked hard for their scores and defended doggedly. Would've loved to have seen Jack come on for the last 20. Thought Marmion was great when he got going.

It'd be an ideal "knock off work early and head to Murtys" situation! Not to be!

Can't wait for this match :woohoo:
Tis weird having a 5:30 kick off on a Friday!!!
Need to come away from this with 5 points. Hoping Bundee has a great performance (Just to tell Irish Mgt I'm still here!)
Great to see Paddy Mcallister back (Hope he gets a productive 50-60 mins)
Also, looking forward to seeing Oisin Dowling start (CC)
