Re: 8 Nations 2020

Yes, Quinn Roux definitely deserves the call-up. Might end up being the international level tight-head second-row Schmidt was looking for in Jean Kleyn. It's an interesting squad, Ed Byrne beat Denis Buckley in the battle of the little chunksters, and great to see Keenan and Shane Daly make it. I t...

Re: Leinster A '20-21'

I was expecting to see another name in the Leinster A line-up.

So it turns out the guy is a bloody class wordsmith as well.

:cry:
Is he retiring or just finished with Leinster & Ireland?

Re: Bernard Laporte and France

Bernard being kept in custody for another 24 hours.

Edit - looks like there was some confusion with this story. The IT was reporting yesterday his detention was being extended by 24 hours, now they say he was released after 24 hours.

Re: Pro 14 2020-2021 season

Given that this is supposed to be starting in 11 days is there any sign of an all actual fixture list? Good question. A few articles today mention us having our first league game in less than two weeks but no actual mention of who we're playing. No fixtures on the Leinster site, nothing related to ...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

From Brendan Fanning's piece on the Saracens game........Ouch! "Would a full house have changed anything? It would have taken the roof off in the last quarter when Jordan Larmour was skating over. But that's only if they had come back from the bar after the first 20 minutes." https://www.independent...

The one bit of good news is that I forgot to record it.
It's on again on BT3 this afternoon in place of the cancelled Castres-Leicester game. :shock:

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

The scrum was terrible. Embarrassing. The front row seemed to just lie down and accept it. Some of the penalties (at least two) were from illegal, crooked driving by Sarries, but we didn’t even protest. They also seemed to pull back on two engagements, causing our front row to fall. I would need to...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

What was the point of replacing Cronin and Toner after two minutes of the second half - why not replace them at half-time? This isn't very helpful to you, but someone once told me the reason for doing this, and it made sense, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was :lol: +1 Is that a +1...

Thornley managed the impressive feat of squeezing “a la” into yesterday’s and today’s IT. Easy to find him in the pub anyway - “A la, ou?” “At bar”
Wouldn't that mean Gerry was breaching the table service only Covid19 guideline? He'd hardly do that. :D

Re: Leinster Squad 19-20

I find it amusing when people consider EOS a munster fan. During his tenure with the IRFU he was less popular in Munster than a sci-fi experiment gone wrong amalgam of Declan Kidney and MOC was in Leinster, a feeling that was mutual. You mean back when Munster fans thought David Wallace should have...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

I listened to an OTB podcast with Quinlan from earlier in the week. He kept talking about challenging in Europe and being at the top table in Europe with their new signings etc. Hardly any mention of the league or trying to win that. Is the Pro14 not good enough for them anymore?

Re: Leinster Rugby Mount Rushmore

I saw Ollie Le Roux play in Parc y Scarlets in the pissing rain. A match we normally would've packed up and gone home at half time. He was critical in changing the club. He should be there. I named my dog after him. Ha, same here! I'm assuming you called your dog Ollie rather than Le Roux? :D He's ...
