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

Enjoyed that. I know a lot of pundits/fans have said that one of the problems about the Saracens game was that we coast through the Pro14 without testing ourselves and then come up short against the big guns. There’s obviously some merit in that but I think we generally try to push the envelope with...

Re: Stash Watch 2020/21

I got you, I just wanted a rant about the jerseys. Whatever the goal might be I just find them too hot and restricting, even for playing!

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

If ruddock doesn't get any game time soon then it's basically a massive 2 fingers stuck up at him. He was badly missed against sarries imo. We aren't a huge size by any means and a guy like Rhys is perfect when we need a bit more physicality. He may aswell head off if Cullen and Lancaster have deci...

Re: Stash Watch 2020/21

It’s basically the same as the Liverpool away jersey. Think someone (Dave?) mentioned that there’s been a push to make rugby jerseys more like football ones in recent years but might be remembering that wrong. I dont think it was me, could be wrong, but I do think theres certainly some convergant e...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Bristol did some good things but I thought the officials only reffed one team tonight. Not sure how they missed Luatua pulling someone’s head into touch, and the offside from the grubber for the try looked pretty blatant to me. One thing they did very well that I think we need to copy is that they w...

Two big turnovers for TOB and the scrum going well according to Murray K.

This is like the glory days of ceefax/teletext.

These games are during the 8 nations in November. No way anyone is getting in to see them I reckon. And if they are it will be an experimental 200 or so.

Not enough to trouble the concessionaires either way
Depends on who gets to go. If Pilotman gets a ticket then that’s actually 800 people.

I get the logic but clubs all record those games anyway so surely they ask each other for the footage?

Re: Leinster A '20-21'

I would love to see that back five of the pack in action. Hard as nails from 4-7 and then the footballing ability and athleticism of Max. Really starting to feel bad for Rhys though. Not sure Silvester will her much of a look in with the first team this season so I’d have gone with a different fullb...

Re: Ulster Rugby - 2020-21 Season

Aaron Sexton playing for Ulster A. Not that he’s anywhere near the Ireland reckoning but I did think of him when I was talking about the Ireland back three in the 8 Nations thread, we could really do with the boost of an exciting back three player running getting bums off couches.

Re: Replacing Leinster's older generation over next 12 to 24 months

Or just imagine Israel Folau without the homophobia. Interesting stuff Hugo, last time I checked up on he seemed to be doing well although I don't know a thing about AFL. I think one of our coaches mentioned that we were still in touch with him didn't they? Can't remember the details and it must be ...

They could easily stream it on youtube. Personally I have always thought (certainly under Leo\Stuart) that if they could have had all Leinster A games behind closed doors they would. There never seemed to be a great push from Leinster to get people into 'A' games in the recent past. Even the highli...

Simple as that. Trying to argue that a headbutt isn’t/shouldn’t/couldn’t be seen as foul play is patently ridiculous. Literally no one is arguing that. The Committee decided that Rhodes had committed an act of foul play. Hmmm... Bottom line is that there was foul play and it was clearly a red card ...
