Sometimes in the league you have to ride your luck, and we most certainly did last weekend.

That's not necessarily a bad thing though. As much as we would like to put 40 or 50 points on teams each week, the ability to win those close games (something which we have struggled to do in the past) is a sign of a team that is mature and can win championships. Of course, we'd rather we didn't have to win ugly that often, but it's nice to know that we can.

Still, it doesn't excuse the fact that the...

And so the bandwagon rolls on!

Not too many teams (if any) will come away from Scotstoun with four points, so we've already taken a massive step towards the play offs at this early stage of the season. I know, I know, there's still a long long way to go, but there's no harm in doing all we can now to help ourselves down the line in April and May.

Don't forget, we're still unbeaten as well! Four games up, four wins recorded. With our policy of rotation in full swing, it means our squad is...

Time for our first big test of the season.

With all due respect to the Dragons and Treviso they will not cause too many problems to the top teams in this league, and the Scarlets came to Belfast last week with several injuries so we were always going to be favourites, especially at home. 12 points from our opening three games was the bare minimum - 13 is pretty good all things considered.

But in those games we were afforded the luxury at times of being able to drop our performance levels and...

If you had offered us nine points from our first two games before the season began we probably would have taken it straight away. Still, it's not unfair after the chances we left out in Treviso to be a little upset we don't have 10.

But we are one of four teams left without a defeat to our names and, given our consistency at the start of the season has tended to be something of a weakness in recent years, it's good to see us put together back to back wins to get underway with the possibility...

Last week wasn't perfect, but then again no opening day performance is.

We got the five points which is the most important thing, and it looks like we've unearthed two more back three gems in Rob Lyttle and Jacob Stockdale if their form so far is anything to go by. It's an excellent platform to build from going forward into this weekend and the season as a whole and it looks like our squad depth is holding up pretty well, especially at tighthead where Ross Kane (our fifth choice) did...

Alright, let's try and ignore the horrendous start to the season.

We have Anton Peikrishvili coming in to bolster our tighthead ranks, we still have the arrival of Marcell Coetzee to look forward to in January, Les Kiss has now had the squad for a full pre-season which should have us better prepared than last season, and we have a certain All Black full-back at our disposal who should be, at the very least, extremely fun to watch.

Ruan will be sorely missed, and it pains me that I am having to...
