    With three consecutive losses in the league, Glasgow needed a win. What they didn't need was incessant rain and a howling wind - and an error count that would have given their fans the shivers every bit as much as the biting cold wouldn't have been in the plan either.”
    It looked awful, even on TV- exeter with intermittent sleet/rain. The weather was better than the rugby though. Brain fart cost osperys the chance of a last minute try/conv and a win- I hope it doesn’t cost us.

      Kings 25-21 Edinburgh a notable result today. Teams falling over themselves not to finish second or third in that conference. The winners of our conference will get a winnable semi.

        That could have been written about our win today. (Except for we've been winning a bit more).

              Brilliant try
              "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

              Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                Cheetahs host the Kings on Saturday (2pm Irish Time) with a chance to get to 36 points and join the scrap for the 3rd spot in Conference A.

                  I’ve been disappointed they haven’t continued their improvement over the second part of last season, this looks like another season of two halves, and may well get to playoffs again- although Connacht are in better shape this year to get 3rd.

                    Actually the scrap for 3rd (our group), and 2&3 in Leinster’s is pretty tasty- Let’s hope the two top spots are nailed down!

                      Ideal for the squad to have a good break now.

                        The weather meant it was not a vintage weekend in the league. They did well to find 2 hours of highlights to show yesterday afternoon

                            Thanks for the reminder- had forgotten they were still playing catch up. Surprisingly close.

                              Weird old game. Recorded it and had a flick through it yesterday. Was 40-15 to the Cheetahs and the Kings scored 3 late tries to get 2 BPs. Kings lad was sent off for a stupid hit on the head area of the Cheetahs player after he had crossed the try line. He was sent off when the Cheetahs had just scored their 5th try.

                                Remarkable that, mid-Feb, 11 from 14 teams have realistic play off chances.
