Re: Home Pro 14 Semi-Final, Sat 18/5 @ The RDS, 14.30

Not exactly a ringing endorsement from the coaching staff to Deegan the last fortnight. Disappointed that he was so late off the bench today. Thought our back row was totally dominant today. Can understand the desire to keep them on there. That first try we scored, in the end it was passes out wide...

Good start from Tomane. I really think he's improved dramatically in the last three weeks or so He missed the kick. Cancel my last message, and throw your rocks.

Re: Leinster v Toulouse

Anyone any experience of watching Heineken Cup rugby on TV in South Africa recently?
Is it likely to be broadcast widely or more of a subscription/specialist thing like here?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Rumour Mill

Kelleher is talented, no doubt about that. As some may recall, I'm not his biggest fan, but he's got ability. Put him together with a great coach like Lancaster, an inspirational mentor like Contepomi and standard setters like Sexton and Henshaw and he will have a good chance to fulfil his potentia...

That goes for the broadcast too.....the director doesn't appear to have done a rugby game before....terrible chopping and changing of camera pictures.

Re: Summer Internationals 2018.

Scary to see the English go after their coach again. Exactly the same sh!t as under Lancaster. They overhype their players so much and when they fail to consistently meet the impossibly high standards set by the media, its all the coaches fault. You wonder if they will ever realise that the players...

Thought Scannell did well, O'Mahony having a very good game. Henshaw much better at 12
Pom's had at least 3 excellent turnovers...playing well as you say.

Re: Summer tour to Australia

The best choice to replace Best as captain unfortunately plays in the worst position. Rob Kearney has all the qualities you need in a captain except he's too far away from the action. Heaslip was Joe's likely backup to Best but that's no longer an option. James Ryan is the standout next best option...
