          So far so good, been a long time since Cardiff have produced a half decent Fly half.
          Ceri Sweeney and Tovey have gone, so Patchell is Cardiff's No1 for this season, which would have him right in the deep end. But I'm happy to see that.
          I'd like to see him keep under the Wales radar for a while as I don't want him turned into an ork. Hopefully because he's a bit bandy, Gatland will opt for someone bigger (biggar?).

          Tom and Owen Williams are very talented also, big season for them.

          Copeland at 8 is an ongoing Irish interest. Another Wexford man, a native of Gorey.

            Looking like it's going to be a strong start to the Irish provinces IMO, with the Scarlets the only ones posing a threat at home.
            The first round of the league is always quite hard to predict. I'd imagine Treviso would stand a good chance of upsetting the Ospreys.

                  Seeing as the world has fallen apart around MF tonight it seems to have gone un-noticed that Zebre registered their first league win tonight over Cardiff Blues.

                  I know nothing else about the game. It may have been chyte, it may have been great but either way am happy to see Zebre finally get a win. Must be a great feeling for them to finally get that monkey off their back

                    There'll be fallout about that Zebre result yet.

                      Bloody shame for a first win to be marred like that! Weren't the hairsprays fined in the region of £25,000 for a similar incident in H-Cup a few years back?

                        Scarlets have a sellout ground today for their match against the ospreys.

                          Fair play to them, hope it's a cracker (Edit - hope it was!).
                          Edinburgh currently lead Glasgow 16-12 at Murrayfield, just over 20 minutes left & being shown on BBC Alba. Paterson reffing ...

                          16-15 now.
