Need Kelleher and Baird on ASAP to try and get some momentum up front. JGP too.

We’re not going to inch our way back into this, need a catalyst. I’d even change now.
100%, this is very very poor

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

49:30 just before Johnny whooped about the turnover. I had only got the replay at the time but watching it again you can see that Archer lined him up from a few metres away and it was definitely deliberate. He takes Johnny around the neck/jaw with one arm and then leads with his head into the back ...

Was it Archer who ended up head butting Sexton at a maul too? It probably wasn’t as bad as I’ve made it sound but I thought it was fairly deliberate anyway.
When was this? Missed it

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

Hated the canned stadium noise, I was listening on the radio and could barely hear Tremenjus over the din. Although I know what you'll say about that... I'd agree with most of the contributions above and particularly that Ringrose was clear MOTM, characteristically hilarious work from Toland there. ...

Re: Corona Virus

WHO surely have a similar opinion of Mr Trump to your own. WHO were warned that Trump was thinking about withdrawing their funding. Given Trump's volatility do you think it was wise of them to risk losing that funding and effectively hurt the developing just to approve China's reopening of the "wet...

Re: Corona Virus

Trump has been a very mixed bag on COVID 19 but he's dead right to pull funding on WHO. To describe this lunatic as being a 'mixed bag' on the pandemic is extraordinarily charitable. Furthermore the WHO provides essential assistance to developing countries where public health is as underfunded as i...

Re: Corona Virus

Lad's forget herd protection. The level of infection required eclipses the number of cases and the death toll would be huge. Grand as an island we have one additional control, but we need to manage the inevitable spread. What we're doing now is assisting the HSE to help manage the critical cases, a...

Re: Schools Rugby 2019-2020

Terrific result for Newbridge, but I've never seen such a level of organised shithousery from a schools team. It certainly worked!

Good performance overall although Q/F game v Oz was a disappointment.
It was 24-19 against the US. Some good and some very frustrating stuff, as ever.

Re: Ireland v Wales Sat 2.15

Conway should have been MOTM, Quinlan really is a parody of himself sometimes. Henshaw and Sexton also really stood out for me, Sexton's timing of the pass was a thing of beauty.

I don't think Stander ever supports his weight when jackaling!

Very poor against France. Kennedy is incredibly frustrating, always seems to take a lot out of the ball. Just pass it to Conroy when he's in space FFS!

Re: Leinster v Lyon, 12th Jan 13:00

No arms charge into Fardy's head after the whistle at the first of those mauls near our line. He was not happy...right in front of Whitehouse too.
