Chiefs on the charge
For a game that many would have considered a 'dead rubber' for the Chiefs they put in one of this season's outstanding performances. Unfortunately I had to watch this one at home instead of in The Library. Not something I normally enjoy but both sides really went after a result and put on a very entertaining show. Initially it looked like it might be a long afternoon for the Chiefs with Ulster scoring after just 3 minutes but the one thing we should know about the Chiefs is they never give up. As the match wore on Chiefs looked more and more confident and line speed in defence and attack soon ramped up to the point where opportunities were created. Thankfully Chiefs are now converting those opportunities into points for both backs and forwards.
Thomas the Tank added two to his tally and it was great to see Michele Campagnaro get a couple on an all too rare outing. However it was Jack Nowell who stole the show for me with another all round display. Even though he was stepped by Charle Piutau for a try this was a rare blemish and Jack created opportunities whilst being resolute in defence.
Next up it's away to Clermont and on this form I'm not betting against the Chiefs coming away with another famous victory.
Clemont is still mission impossible(though it wouldn't be the first time Rob and team have pulled off one of those) but I couldn't ask for more from yesterday's performance and Camp back in business will do me nicely.
If we're exiting Europe at this point then we're going down swinging.
What do you think? I love that phrase and what I think is that we'll lose on Saturday but with style. I think we'll finish second in the league and I think we have virtually everything needed to win the Premiership. The only thing we need then is just a little bit of luck.
