Re: Leinster A '20-21'

Best player on pitch is a Leinster boy ...... unfortunately its Izuchukwu He's been superb. Whenever I see an explosive athlete at the lower levels I look to see if they're involving themselves in the game or just being chucked the ball the whole time. He's been reading things brilliantly and looke...

Re: Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

Wouldn't agree with that at all. I think he has been really good. Agreed I think the problem with DeAllande for some less educated fans is that he doesn’t carry 100 metres a game and smash opposition, so they equate this as being poor. I have also heard this from Johnny come lately Munster fans, so...

For a marquee player on top tier cash, de Allende has not looked value for money, outshone by centres on half the cash.

Re: 2nd Row going forward

While Fardy has low mileage for his age and is playing in a position where some can play at the highest level until about 40, he's looked a bit slow since the season resumed and is 36 now (37 by end of the season). I wonder is he in decline? On the other hand, it might be that it's taking him time ...

rewatching, looks like Baird was calling the lineout, big responsibility for a 21 yr old.
Thats what we thought as well.

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

Would agree with a lot of the sentiment on here. Thought we looked rusty but that's understandable. Reffing was a bit lopsided. Toner's yellow was harsh and Sexton was right, the ruck was absolute chaos. Scrum was solid and I thought we had then on the rack a few times. With another ref could've go...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

What was most noticeable for me was Saracens' inability to convert nearly half-a-dozen 5m scrums or 5m lineouts into tries. Apart from one right at the death they never really looked like scoring tries from them. Also clear was the gap between Wigglesworth's kicking game and that of Aled Davies whe...

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

Not sure what people expected this to be? Dressing room footage of bust-ups and high drama?! It was always going to be a mix of highlights and player interviews. I enjoyed it to be honest. Particularly Isa's bits and the little insight into Stuesdays. Also blaming Leinster's media output for it is ...

Re: Backrow going forward

I think Fardy shoud be included in that list, irrespective of whether he is in the 2nd row list. If we were playing Saracens tomorrow, I'd want a 4,5,6 to be Toner, Ryan and Fardy.

Re: Leinster Squad 19-20

A couple of injuries and players away in Ireland Camp means the front row now looks very shallow. Who's next off the rank in the Academy? Clarkson & Ward at TH, Bobby Sheehan at Hooker, ?? at LH. Any thoughts? Possible senior squad next season? LH Prop(4) Cian Healy(32) - Signed central 2yr contract...
