Have teams completely forgotten about the drop goal?

Re: RWC 2023 Pool Draw

So, when we thought they were using the standings from after the autumn internationals we all thought it was a bit stupid to use rankings from so far ahead of the tournament. Now they've gone and decided to use the rankings as they were on January 1st!!! We've been shafted in favour of Wales - we ar...

Re: Leinster V NG Dragons RDS Fri 2nd Oct 20:15

When was the last time Johnny played the Dragons? Or perhaps a better question. How many times has Johnny played v Dragons since he came back from France?

It’s only a one hour documentary.

I would have thought there would easily be enough material for a 10 episode docu-series.

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

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...
