Interestingly the French Ligue National Du Rugby are talking legal action over the cancellation of the Toulouse game but not this one
Toulouse were meant to be at home and argue that they could field a team. EPCR called the game off and awarded the points. Cardiff had not left the Uk to travel.

Ah well......that's Saturday afternoon banjaxed. There doesn't look like there's a replacement fixture to televise so that's meant the old man hurling buns at Posh Richard for entertainment!

On face value you have to believe the reasons but the cynic inside me is muttering. The words "Cheese eating surrender monkeys" have not passed my lips.

Yes a very good team, but disappointed there is still no sign of Hanro/MVS. Hopefully they are not too far away.

Unusually it looks like the Old King has been given a week off as well, hope he's not injured!
I hope MVS is OK. In one of the matches (just pre Christmas I think) he took the ball into contact in the opposition 22 just to the left of the posts, and clearly got a big knock. Play carried on and when he got up off the ground he looked very dazed and stood bent over as if he didn't know where he was, and very unsteady on his feet. He played on but maybe that was a blow that was exacerbated by his more recent knock.
We were there, sorry but he didn't play on, he was far too injured, concussed to even be able to stand let alone walk, he was replaced immediately after they were able to get him to his feet but he was way out of it. Probably one of the worst concussions I have seen. I'm not sure he didn't injure his ankle at same time.

I should jolly well hope not! An early Rémy (even this evening!) would be recommended to resist the temptation. Salut!

Did BB play in Wales last week, isn't that where our worst area for Covid was, judging by the stricter Welsh restrictions?

A different game to the one he was recently knocked out in (Bristol). He was attended to in the next break in play, but stayed on the field I believe.

As the government will be pulling the self isolation process at the end of March (back to normality) how will this impact on the euro cup?
