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 ...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

I don't like or have much respect for farrell and his hubris ...but without doubt, he is a good rugby player. nowhere near the class of Johnny Wilkinson and others who have played 10 but do you remember the lions documentary when oconnell was captain and farrell had only started shaving? oconnell p...

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.

Any thoughts? Possible senior squad next season? LH Prop(4) Cian Healy(32) - Signed central 2yr contract...

Re: Leinster Academy 19/20

Seems increasingly like time and commitment to the Sub-Academy is becoming a key component of player development within the Leinster pathway. If players don't adapt to the disciplines required within the Centre of Excellencee, they may be judged as unsuitable for further development in Leinster. Fe...

Re: Ireland u20 2020

I can't understand why they flog Thomas Clarkson so much. He played every game last year and this to almost 80 mins in each game. Whatever about him needing to be rested / protected, the other issue is if he gets injured there is no one else with ANY experience.
