So, some match eh?

Managing to keep a team like the Bulls scoreless for 75 minutes is some achievement, and a credit to the defensive team. The stats say 50/50 possession, but seemed like they had the ball for a much longer stretches. Lineout was working well, we had a great maul, scrum was solid. The Toms were on fire, and some debut for Hansen. Papali'i was great too, drawing bodies in to tackle him, making yards.

Conditions really didn't suit Bulls, and up until the 3rd try I thought they might come back. Once we got that score, seems like their heads went down and we only grew in confidence.

Really really pleased.

(also, this weeks Craggy Rubgy Pod is hilarious, they all seem giddy as anything.)

I know the weather is predicted to be crap, but I don't think i've been this excited about a home match in a long time!!!

Cannot wait for Pre match beverages in Rabbits, the walk up to the SG, Watch the match, the first time the fields is sang, the scramble to get a spot in Rabbits and then the post match discussions :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: (CC) (CC)

Just received a response from CR:

Hey Shane. Yep food and drink will be served behind the Clan and Main Stands as normal. We'll put out something publicly later just confirming that.

Pints were available for the London Irish match so I can't see any reason they wouldn't be available again.

The last time I was in the SG is was 30 degrees plus - I'm fully expecting to see that kind of weather again tomorrow.

Horizontal rain in my Heineken couldn't taste any worse than the stuff they served up last week in Cardiff

Heads up from our good friends at Murty Rabbitts:
Walk-ins only for pre & post game. They are not taking any bookings this Friday to facilitate as many fans as allowed under current guidelines....

Cannot wait for this match - will be great to have a competitive game back in the Sportsground (even under reduced capacity). Have to admit I don't know a huge amount about the Bulls. Leinster put them to sword last week, but not sure how much we can glean from a game like that.
