Re: Leinster V NG Dragons RDS Fri 2nd Oct 20:15

Ruddock should be in the team at 6 every time, especially against the big English and french teams, he gives us that bit of dog in the pack.
He just smashes people. Him leavy and dorris the future Leinster backrow imho.

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

We were very nieve today, first half was crying out for us to play low risk rugby and play for field position. Possession for possessions sake is not a good thing. Sexton didn't control the game at all which is becoming a regular occurrence against the top teams. The pack got beaten up, we need to s...

Re: Pack size problems moving forward?

I think I would rather have pace and footwork rather than size with the way the game is going. Especially if they start enforcing the offside line like they are since rugby started back in new zealand and we move to summer rugby with dry fast pitches.

Re: Pack size problems moving forward?

Porter will definitely switch over to loose Head within the next 2 seasons. That'll give the pack a lot of size. Him Kelleher & Furlong would be more powerful than nearly any other front row around. Do we really Think that Baird when he is fully grown will be anymore light weight than Toner. Backrow...

They really play everything, it’s exciting and brave. Some of the most enjoyable games to watch were last seasons U20’s looks like this year could be similar. Crowley another one for the conveyor belt, they really need to move some of those young 10’s to other provinces for the good of Irish rugby ...

Re: Ireland 2020 and beyond

I feel the two main problem areas of the team are the back row and back 3. Teams know they can kick us the ball as we have no counter attack strategy whatsoever. This gives them an easy out. The back row isa big problem, POM seems underpowered to be a blindside these days, probably 7 or bust. CJ nee...

Re: RWC 2019 Warmup Games

While yesterday was extremely worrying, any rugby player will tell you at this time off year you can run into a team that are just that bit further on in their preparations and are more match hardened than you are and you can get beat out the gate. This doesn't necessarily mean you are in a bad posi...

Re: Italy v Ireland Sun 24/02/19 3pm

Spot on on leavy, he is a hybrid of van der flier and SOB. Excellent ball carrier like SOB but with better footwork, fast to the breakdown like josh and a turnover machine. We really miss him. Could we be trying something different with conditioning at the moment, we look flat almost a yard off the ...

Awful performance lucky to get away with it.
Earl's isn't a centre, poor defensively, some nice breaks though.
What about trying Stockdale at full back

At that price I'd say he negotiated in person
That's about 150k a game per season. Seems a crazy signing for LI but good luck to SOB he owes Irish rugby nothing.

Re: Leinster v Ulster

That was a shocking Ulster team. Worst I've ever seen them send to play us so hard to judge how good people played. The pick of our players were penny and obrien. Two observations/concerns for me. (1) Frawley plays very far behind the gainline which makes it difficult for the rest of the backline. (...

Re: All Ireland League - Thread

All Ireland League Final and the IRFU allow yet another total anomaly when the only full-time professional player wins the man-of -the-match award against the amateurs. No fault of Peter Dooley but this makes a nonsense of the IRFU regulation bannings payments to players (Regulation 6). Club compet...

Re: Leinster's Halfback Options going forward

Munster don't develop anything. We're still waiting for a Munster developed player to become a regular in Irish match day squads. POM, in 2012, is the last. To think Carbery is blocking 2 is fantasy stuff. As a fan, you'd think they'd be used to seeing players developed elsewhere (SA, Leinster, Ulst...

Must be some amount of new signings coming in given the amount of players leaving. Other than jordi and Marty Moore who's coming into the pack.

That's a very poor attendance for such a big game for Ulster rugby.
Ulster doing well.

Ospreys look clueless. Big question marks over their coaching ticket.

Re: Ireland's Next Captain

No problem with POM as a captain and like him as a player. I just think he'll be doing very well to hold onto his place til the world cup(SOB, Leavy, Stander, Conan, Ruddock, van der flier etc putting serious pressure on) and it is very doubtful he will be in the Ireland team for many more years aft...
