Re: Leinster Rugby's historic 2017/18 double-winning season

It’s only a one hour documentary.

I would have thought there would easily be enough material for a 10 episode docu-series.

Re: Barry Daly

Come across as a really grounded sensible lad in that interview on leinsterrugby.ie.
Sorry to see him go as he looked like he could be a big contributor.
Best of luck to him... could be doing worse things than a few years in Boston.

Re: Leinster greatest coach??

Schmidt suffers from being great while he is in situ and seeing the limitations quite clearly in his absence. No doubt an excellent coach like Bielsa in soccer but people are relatively glad to see the back of them once things falter as the methods are so demanding on the players/staff. Farrell is ...

Re: 2000/21 Membership

Has anyone done this yet? I threw my name down on the waiting list, and got an email today saying I could sign up early. Same. And I went for it. A membership (where I could potentially pick games) would suit me better than a season ticket. I know you can get individual games anyway but still... I ...

August 22nd - Munster
August 29th - Ulster
Sept 5th - Pro 14 semi
Sept 12th - Pro 14 final
Sept 19th - Saracens QF
Sept 26th - Europe SF
Oct 17th - Europe Final
Thats an intense run of fixtures. I can see the two interpros in August being used as warmups.

Re: Leinster Squad 19-20

That's an awful lot of chat about a lad that will never play for Leinster again.
He's gone. No need to spend pages discussing him/how he left/why he left.

Re: Munster, The Money Pit Province 2019/2020

Being from Kilkenny I have to say that there are far less Munster jerseys around than 15 years ago. In fact the only two lads I’d meet in pubs watching games that are Munster fans are from Munster. Now I know there are lads from a good few Leinster counties that supported Munster in their hay day an...

Re: Munster, The Money Pit Province 2019/2020

Actually thinking about it I suppose the "Munster in particular" is unfair and that's because I am holding them to a higher standard than the other two because I expect more from them.
This may not be fair but that's my perception.

Re: Munster, The Money Pit Province 2019/2020

Again, when you say Munster in particular don’t want to put in the ground work, apart from Leinster, who else are you comparing them to? And what facts are you basing this on? Munster have shown in the recent past (a decade ago) that they can produce top quality players. Its been pointed out by oth...

Re: Munster, The Money Pit Province 2019/2020

BTW there was 11 Leinster born and developed lads starting in the 2009 Heineken cup final with 6 more on the bench - so 17 in the 22. I don't think that's as poor a Leinster representation as you are making it out to be.

Edit - correcting bench numbers

Where did I discredit it? “just wouldn't be the same for me if it was 4 or 5 lads plus some from Munster/Ulster/Connacht plus a few imports. If we won a European cup under those circumstances I'm sure I'd be happy but it just wouldn't be the same” It wouldn't be the same for me. That in no way disc...

Re: Munster, The Money Pit Province 2019/2020

Interesting looking through Leinster squads, and the squad announced at the start of the 2008/2009 season for Leinster had over 1/3 from outside the province. So shows how a squads fortunes can be turned around given time. They hadn't got their act together in organising the supply at that point. T...
