The main story from the weekend, in rugby as well as everywhere else, was that everything was disrupted by snow.
Ben Coles went to Toulon to see London Irish heavily beaten, and then his return flight was cancelled, postponing his return and preventing him from being able to write this column.
I (Hutch) was at a very white wedding, at which just over half of the 140 guests actually managed to arrive, leaving plenty of booze available for those that did – we had a good crack that. I then spent all of Sunday in the car on the way to Birmingham to watch the Sports Personality of the Year, which was a lot of fun, although the rugby coverage was sadly lacking.
The upshot is that I haven’t seen a minute of rugby this weekend, so whilst the ERC managed to get most of the matches played, the snow has disrupted The Rugby Blog plans.
Two Heineken Cup matches were postponed: Edinburgh are playing Castres at Murrayfield tonight, whilst Toulouse are due to take on Glasgow on Tuesday, which should allow enough time for their kit to arrive from London.
Of the games that did go ahead, the Ospreys beat Munster, Scarlets won in Treviso and Cardiff lost to the Saints at home.
Leicester drew with Perpignan 22-22, Wasps comfortably beat the Dragons, Ulster edged past Bath at the Rec, the Exiles lost in Toulon and somehow Saracens won away at Racing Metro having lost at home last week.
The only other result was Biarritz inflicting revenge over Aironi, with a 34-3 victory at home.
Perhaps anyone that did watch some rugby this weekend could let us know what the highlights were? Social media is all about the community contribution after all.
