Bristol vs Toulon

All the best to Bristol tonight. I think they will win convincingly, set piece battle will be about even but I think they have more class in their back line

Only if Bristol show up.....they seemed to sacrifice the Wasps game for this one, but they were really poor v Wasps. Some big names really need to earn their corn tonight. I don’t know how the Toulon team are shaping up these days but they aren’t far from home and will be out of the blocks fast. Hopefully a Bristol win but think it will be tight.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Tough one, I love Toulon, but I suppose I need to support Bristol...not a team I like because of their, and their owner's attitude towards the salary cap.

No need, Colin. I have never been keen on Bristol so see no requirement to support them this evening!
Turns out for the A team

A lot of talk about the stars, young players, international call ups, eligibility, brilliant Fijians etc, but a mention for Yann Thomas - doing well.

Considering it’s Gloucester Old Boys vs Rest of the World there’s no choice who to support...

Although I am hoping to see a Briz win it will still be a great privilege to watch Sergio Parisse play towards the end of what has been a stellar career.
I still think Patrice C would get a game in our front row now.
