Think I'd like to have seen Gibson-Park starting to speed things up and keep Lyon moving.

The lack of centre cover on the bench is a concern. I suppose Tomane and ROL must still be injured.

It's great for Josh Murphy to be involved in Europe.

Any chance Ross Byrne is covering 12?

Larmour moves to 13, Kearney to the wing.

Factors outside our control: Luke Pearse, the weather and the place kicking of their out-half.

I'm too nervous to talk :D

Have a feeling Lyon are waiting in the long grass and we may see the real Lyon this week.

Just a feeling though!

Yeah I find the number of changes they’ve made a bit disconcerting. Hints at a huge reaction to last week

If we could do a job on them like Ulster did on Clermont last night, I'd be over the moon!!!!

Leo has talked a lot in multiple interviews this week about the Toulouse away match last year and how we started slowly and lost all the things that were within our control that a good start would get you like silencing the French crowd. We seem very focused for this match in particular and how it is different playing away in France as opposed to other away games. hopefully we back up the strong words. C’mon Leinster!

Said this a million times but when Lowe tried to run back the kick off instead of booting it downfield I knew we were in trouble, it'll be interesting to see how we approach it today.

I'd imagine people are trying to swim around doing errands in order to be free to sit on the couch from 13:00 until about 19:00.

Particularly looking forward to Bamba v Healy, Fearns v Deegan and Ngatai v Henshaw.

Probably their three best and most impactful players with Tuisova out (which is a huge boost for us).

Nakitaci is a cracking player but I'd expect Johnny to test him...

He's playing better than George Lowe.
