Amazingly, post no 600, and three Irish provinces looking for their mojo!

 600 posts, how did I ever get here?

Meanwhile, there's another weekend of Pro 12, and hopefully a weekend when 3 of the 4 Irish provinces can rediscover their mojo. Connacht travel to Cardiff to take on the Blues as league leaders in a match they should really win. The Blues have some good players, but with all due respect, when I’ve watched them this season, they’ve been a 70 minute team, hanging in there, but then getting put away in the last 10 minutes. If Connacht keep their composure from last week, they could win well.
The other three provinces are riding low on form and confidence. At least Ulster have Ravenhill to lift them for the visit of Edinburgh. They have so much talent, it’s going to start coming together for them soon, and this match could be the springboard for the rest of their season.

Glasgow is not the sort of place you want to be heading these days if things aren’t clicking properly. But I kind of feel like Leinster are turning the corner – they have the quality of players, they’re trying too hard. Even if they don’t win this, I think they’ll put in a performance they be pretty happy with. When they have to dig deep, they do.

Finally Munster will hopefully get back on the horse against the Dragons, after a pretty demoralising loss to Connacht last weekend. Just one good win and your whole season can look different
