    Tom Farrell had another good game against Leinster on Saturday. At present he is probably the form 13 in Ireland after Ringrose.

      Looks like Connacht are bigger threats to leinster these days..
      We need to perform today.. This landsdowne voodoo needs to end..
      He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

        Fair play to the Crusties. Fine effort up North.

          Wonder if they get it ahead of Leinster/RDS?

            Been a long time since I've seem a team use a kicking game to dominate as much as Ospreys are dominating Connacht at the moment

                What the actual fu*k was that idiot Patterson looking at at the end of the match, no Connacht player touched the ball when Allen when to ground. The ball clearly came off his elbow.....I really wonder what TMOs are looking at.

                  A 22-17 win for Ospreys in the end. Careless by Connacht to lose it after coming back strongly to 17-17. Decision to award the try at the end looked correct. 17-17 would have been a much better result for Munster.

                    I’m still wondering what they saw on that replay- unless there are angles we didn’t see - that’s an awful decision. Connacht deserves more out of that- although should/could have made it safe earlier.

                      The ball was knocked out of Allen's hands by a Connacht player, then gathered by Evans who touched down. The gap in Connacht's midfield defence caused the try, not the melee at the end.

                        The decision was correct by the offiicials

                          Dan Evans told BBC Sport Wales: "We fought hard to get back in a position to sneak a win. It was a lovely line by Cory and it was right place, right time (for me).

                          "I knew it wasn't a knock-on, but it was a bit of luck and overall I think we deserved the victory."

                            it was a good call.
                            Thought that Blade improved things when he came on for Marmion. Also O'Halloran had a 'mare

                              It's just a pity that none of the officials picked up on McCusker (who had already served ten minutes in the bin) blatantly shoving O'Brien in the back while in the air at a lineout a few minutes beforehand. An extremely poor piece of officiating and not the only piece of dangerous play that went unsanctioned - there were two or three high tackles in fairly quick succession which were missed or ignored.
                              Tis but a scratch.

                                I thought he gave a penalty of that (although it could easily have been a YC - it was blatant, cynical and dangerous)
