      Well done MRSC

          We are a younger less experienced side nowadays, the 4 lads gone from the pack were oftentimes the clever heads in panicked situations, you've to learn that and I think we will in time again.

              They were not the Toulouse of old though. They were poor that day and have been since. We stuffed Stade at Thomond this season too remember. Both have faded, just as we have.

              When we're beating Racing, Toulon or Sarries we'll know we're back where we need to be.

                  I don't know if I'd say better but I do feel the players we currently have are about the same quality that what we had then (Paulie aside naturally). That's what is so frustrating: we DO have the players now but cannot seem to do anything with them
                  Good things happen to those who wait, though mostly much too late.

                        That video is utterly depressing to look at. For many reasons.

                          The day a largely unused CJ Stander reminded us (and management) of his potential. Think he came on round the 20 min mark and got man of the match

                            Yes after POM injured himself at the first Line-out right in front of us (spotted at the time by Ms Piquet) but played through the pain for 20 mins.

                              Would ya stop. We were pretty average then too. Toulouse were just ****e, as they were when Connacht beat them in Toulouse in 2013 (long before Connacht were the force they are now) and when Ulster tore them a new one last year in Ravers.

                              We hammered Stade this season but nobody would say we're a great side.

                              Now this was a truly great performance against Toulouse in their pomp:

                              That's a long time ago now sadly.
