    Pro14 season 2019/20 - Other matches and clubs

    Cheetahs setting an early pace: they've put 48 on Glasgow and now 63 on Ulster. We'll do well to get anything out of the place next week. That's two from two for them as well as Leinster, Munster, Edinburgh and Scarlets. Zebre, Glasgow and Ospreys are zero from two so far. Connacht play Treviso at home later tonight.

    This should be a more competitive league this season, and hopefully Cheetahs can keep the effort going. Edinburgh seem to be on the verge of eclipsing Glasgow in Scotland, and Scarlets will surely be competitive. With Cardiff losing at home to Edinurgh today, they surely can't be the great underachievers again - can they?

    I think there'll be fewer away wins so home wins will crucial. For Munster, Musgrave Park can become a real fortress, because crowds of 5,000 or less at Thomond don't help the place. Much better to get 7,000 in Cork.

    We have Scarlets and Edinburgh as the main dangers to us topping our group. Getting second or third will surely have us in the RDS for the third year in a row, so no thanks to that. We need to be winning our group.

            He will strengthen them for sure. Almost certainly not enough to make a difference for their double header against Racing over the next couple of weekends, but he may be able to get them competitive enough to make life difficult for Sarries when they visit the Liberty. Hard to see them travelling to TP and getting a result though.
            Tis but a scratch.

              What I don't get about that whole Ospreys situation is what did they think the coach did wrong? 50% of his squad was injured, 20% was away with Wales & they were in the toughest Champions cup group I can ever recall. If anything I thought they played very well against us.

                The Ospreys situation is legally complicated. Seems he is still an Ospreys employee who has been stood down from his duties.

                From below article:
                Chairman Rob Davies says Clarke's situation is due to a "matter of personal conduct".
