        I know its very early, but I'd take that draw to the final now.

        Home v Ulster
        Away to Scarlets

          Surely Leinster v Cheetahs rather than Cardiff.

              Standards are slipping everywhere - more evidence of the general impact of Trump and Brexit. The rot must stop.

                In my defence, Your Honour, at least when one of my errors is pointed out, I acknowledge and correct it.

                The Country wouldn't be in the state it's in at the moment if certain Politicians did the same.

                  Its that professional pride and dedication that makes the rest of us assume there could never be a mistake, but now my trust in experts as been shattered.

                    In the words of Ronald Reagan "Trust, but verify"

                    I don't agree with a lot of what he said, but he was dead right there.

                      Season still young but neither Toulon nor Clermont in qualifying spots is some shock
                      Good things happen to those who wait, though mostly much too late.
