Seconds out, round 2!

Seconds out, round 2!

Leinster get things going for Ireland when they welcome Castre to the RDS. No BOD, no Cullen, maybe no Ross – but Macken and Moore will no doubt step up to the plate. Anytime I’ve seen Castres play, BIG has been the impression I’ve had.  Away from home, the intent of most of the French clubs gets sorely tested – a good finish in the T14 seems to be their main focus. Leinster know how to do this HC thing now, and as long as they don’t offer too many 3 point opportunities to Rory Kockott, they should get home.

Connacht get a shot at an away win at Zebre, and if they play like they did against Saracens, I can’t see any problems for them.

Montpellier V Ulster is a mouth watering prospect, think BIG  V BiG! Ulster’s title credentials are going to be given a stern examination, by high flying Monpellier. Leinster got a draw there last year, a touch lucky maybe, but it can be done. Ulster will have to pull their socks up from last week, and in reality will probably aim to get a losing bonus point.

Finally, Munster get a n opportunity to right the wrongs of last week when Gloucester come to town. At home they are different animal from the near sighted mole that crawled out of the ground in Edinburgh, and they’ll do the business no doubt.

Finally, the Wallabies get another crack at the All Blacks on Saturday – think high scoring match with the AB’s on the right side of that.
