It’s only a one hour documentary.

I would have thought there would easily be enough material for a 10 episode docu-series.
I wish when we got the upgrade to the forum a couple of weeks ago we'd gotten a LIKE button because this post most definitely would qualify for lots and lots of likes

Also, anyone remember the font being used by CCC on jersey numbers at the time - really hard to read at a glance

My favourite thing about the numbers on the 2009 6 Nations jerseys

Yeah JR doesn't look like his injured going by recent social media.. but then who knows.. maybe we will get an injury update today.
I agree - according to Instagram he was at one of the Applegreen stations in his new car on Friday. It was their birthday and his and they got a cake for him!!

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Is there a reason we have to play in Lansdowne ? would make much more sense to play in RDS or do we have to stay with nominated stadium I'd say we're staying at Lansdowne because if the social distancing is reduced to 1 metre by then we'd be able to get about 18.5k in to see the game

Re: Pro 14 - General Thread

What happens with the new players signed for next season - will they be allowed to play in the interpro/derby games and playoffs for this season? Yep they are allowed. Snyman & De Allende both avail for Munster for example. This was the rule for previous seasons but hasn't been updated since 2017/1...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Mick Dawson - We are 95% certain the Saries game will be played in the Aviva and they are looking at ways to get some supporters in. Selection would probably be on a lottery basis. If they could get the government to agree to one metre rather than two they wouldn't need to do a lottery - he said on...

Re: TOWN HALL with Mick Dawson & Leo Cullen

Kind of disappointed with response re potential tickets for matches this year . I would have thought / expected , that those season ticket holders that have committed to the €120 charge , should be guaranteed tickets ( assuming match is in Aviva , with 18K tickets ) . Response indicated that would ...

Re: Munster, The Money Pit Province 2019/2020

So. In the last 20 years we have probably had more "non Leinster developed" players than Munster have had "non munster developed" it's just that currently it is massively the opposite. As previously mentioned in this thread - here’s the numbers for the past 15 years John Below is the % of Leinster ...
