They are Legend t-shirts, is he not still a Leinster Legend? It would be a fitting tribute from the fans. Please make it happen.
I wholeheartedly endorse this sentiment.

Re: Luke Fitzgerald retires

He has been one of my favourites since he was just a kid with crazy hair and electric feet playing schools rugby. So much talent, so little luck with injury.

Best of luck to him for the future.

Re: 10 years of Leinsterfans!

Just had a look back over the photoshop-off. There was some fantastic work in there. I had also forgotten about simonno6's tattoo.

Did Isaac4leinster reinvent himself on here once he got his wish and Isaac came to Leinster?

Eddie Jones ushers in his bold new era in England rugby by........ making one change to the pack that started last years 6Ns. Launchbury for Attwood.

Re: European Champions Cup [Most Improved]

That Exeter/Clermont/Ospreys/Bordeaux pool has been quite something.

My brain may have short circuited during those last two matches trying to keep up with who was topping the group. I think I need a stiff brandy at this point!

Well that was a fairly dismal way to exit the competition. I'm sure people need a bit of cheering up after that so it would be rude of me not to share this absolute howler from Owen Farrell today: http://www.lerugbynistere.fr/videos/video-champions-cup--l-enorme-rate-owen-farrell-but-stade-toulousai...

Friday Rant! This weekend we have 5 Pairs of matches. Only one of these pairs is split between BT and SS the other 4 are either both on BT or SS! It really makes it hard to warm towards this new format. You would think they could trade one for one! This. So much this. It has also been irritating me...

Talk of him relocating his family to Ireland. Does that include Owen? Now there's a Farrell that would have an immeadiate, positive impact on the scoreboard. Maybe he's making sure Gabriel is Ireland qualified for when the time comes and he'll have one son playing for each country :lol: The most im...

Re: Ulster 2015/16

After Quinnie's Munster tirade last night, Tyrone Howe has just described Ulster as appalling. In fairness, he's not far wrong on the evidence of that first half.

I'm not sure I can watch a second half of that.

Re: Ireland: what next?

When I suggested that Farrell should go somewhere and prove his coaching ability I'm not sure the IRFU was what I had in mind :shock: It does rather smack of him wanting to get one over the RFU. I'd have thought he and Joe might both be a bit control-freakish to work together so it'll be very intere...

Re: Ireland: what next?

I'd like to see Best get the captaincy for this 6N personally. I've always had a lot of time for him. It may also be a good move for Joe to choose a captain who isn't from Leinster, so the fact that there is a strong candidate from Ulster is handy. As an aside I'd also echo LRIP's personal observati...

Re: Aviva Premiership: something exciting happens

So, Rhys Priestland has now changed his mind about the sabbatical from international rugby:

I'd have loved to have seen the reaction from Mike Ford when Priestland dropped that little gem.
