    Kenya winning a sevens tournament and 26,000 turned up to watch the final of Spain's Copa del Rey. The game truly is becoming global.

    Got tickets for next weekends Judgement day at the Millenium stadium; Blues v Ospreys, followed by Dragons v Scarlets. Should be a good day out and a decentish crowd. It really is a shame that club/regional rugby isn't particularly big in Wales.

    Some dreadful refereeing in the Wasps/Sarries match I thought.

    What are you concerning?

    All I can comment on is Wasps' fairly poor performance tbh :lol:

    Indeed.

    Dai Young must have some compromising photos of Romain Poite or something.

    Exeter will be fierce opposition, and no matter what happens, I think Wasps can treat this campaign as a success.

    Indeed a successful season for Wasps. First time in the playoffs since 2008 is a clear indication that they're re growing to the team they used to be.

    It's good that they're playing each other really, because it means that one will make it all the way to the final.

    Off the field, too. Think they've registered their highest turnover and profit.

    Even just listening on the radio it sounds like an amazing atmosphere in Lyon. Let's hope Sarries can bring home the trophy!

    Beale will miss the start of the Wasps season, but not all of it as was first feared.

    Thoughts on the new trials with 6 points being awarded for a try and 2 points for all kicks?

    I think its terrible.

    1) No 1 point winning margins

    2) Everyone will have to start again and it will take at least one full season to get everyones head around it i.e. when calculating scores, referring to current system

    3) Don't think you could have a drop goal finish to win the match

    4) I think theres enough attacking rugby in the game anyway

    5) Will surely introduce more foul play as teams would have to score at least 4 penalties to get in front rather than the current at least 2.

    What are your thoughts?
