Re: Leinster v Connacht Sat 2nd 19.35 Eir Sport

Greg Mcgrath is a Tighthead prop I assume?

Edit: Ultimate rugby says he's a 40 year old prop no less. He doesn't look a day over 39. https://www.ultimaterugby.com/player/view/11547

Re: Leinster v Connacht Sat 2nd 19.35 Eir Sport

I predict that this will be one of those games where there will be a massive cloud of steam drifting over the pack, while the outside backs freeze their nuts off standing around waiting for the ball the come to them once every 10 minutes.

Re: Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

I see conspiracy theories are flying around munster fans. Apparently we faked the failed Covid tests because, a) we were struggling to fill the last two bench slots, and b) we think we have a better chance of winning during the 6N. The story we're giving isn't credible, and all of us "should be asha...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

This gives a bit of context to the old 'get the fook out'... https://www.the42.ie/rugby/ I think you mean this. Which does explain it. Kearney had a shite time from the press and Ireland supporters who forgot the 6N Zebo played in we won nothing and he didn't score and when Rob came back in 2019 we...

2023 World Cup draw

World cup draw is in the morning. Am I the only one who had no idea? As usual, the most interesting thing will be the teams we draw in the group, but the most important thing will be who we might play in the knockout stages. If there's a group with NZ & France or England & Australia, then having tha...

Re: Leinster vs Cardiff, Nov 22nd, 5.15pm

Yes, I fully understand that the plan was to have one of the 2 that left available for selection, but even before the season started it was clear that that was not the case. My point, and you have said it above, is that Leinster are now 1 injury away from having Clarkson as first choice with no exp...

Re: England v Ireland 21 November 15:00

I think Ross isn't athletic enough for this level unfortunately. Just doesn't have the attacking threat and never really has. Shocking performance overall. Lineout poor, attack poor, some braindead decision making (what was JGP at kicking that?). Doris probably the shining light for us. Porter too....

Can anyone explain why Dave Kearney looked so disappointes to have scored that try? His reaction was very odd.
