As nice as Pirates have been to us, I want welsh to win this so that the RFU gets a rocket up the proverbial and sorts this sham out.
If you're the worst side in the league, you get relegated. If you win the champ playoffs, you get promoted. Otherwise the league ladder loses all purpose and incetive for competition. Rugby could stagnate. Horrible decision to keep Falcons up.
There definitely was a mix of that. The Pirates' lineout did not function in the first half. Looked better in the second, even before they brought on a different thrower. His work in the loose was fantastic though: if we can teach him to throw he looks like a real prospect.
