Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Would it be better to play this game in Donnybrook? Is there any financial benefit to Leinster Rugby in doing so? This keeps coming up. I believe the stance is that we are contracted into playing a number of games at the RDS each season. There may be other factors at play too such as better facilit...

Re: TV viewing of quarter final

DID had the Now TV dongle + 1 month sky sport and sport plus (inc. BT Sport) for €30 or so earlier this week. Obviously you need to cancel before 30 days to avoid follow-on charges.

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

I think when weighing up whether to make exemptions for televised sports events, such as the close-out of the 2019/20 Rugby competitions, significant weight should be given to the morale benefit to large numbers of people (especially older people). For me as for many the spring lockdown would have b...

Re: Leinster v Saints Sat 5.15 Aviva

thats all fine, but none of that is against the laws as long as you start your run from behind the ball and don't change your line. Take a look at virtually every try our backs scored between 2000 and 2011 using the Gaffney loop. Its all dependent on one simple fact - you can take a guy out deliber...

Re: European Cup final 2019

It seems Associate members are out of luck with regard to Tickets allocation unlike last year. I presume this falls out from the numbers allocated but anyone know the score? I haven't seen the STH email but just curious whether the allocation system has changed.

Thanks

Re: September 2017 Doubleheader in South Africa

The Irish way on an issue like this (notwithstanding that a screwup had arisen elsewhere) would likely have been to sort this out and certainly to ensure that two respected international sportsmen (who were clearly going to leave the jurisdiction promptly) did not have the indignity of deportation. ...

They were going head to head with Ed Sheeran at 10am (may have been a factor). I was trying to get both. Managed to pick up the 10 euro Leinster tickets but no luck with Ed. Bit of a result really!

Re: Leinster v Northampton - Aviva 19:45 Saturday 17th

I went looking for the family deal (€50 for 4) 2-3 weeks ago and none were available. Left the kids at home as a result. It was a shame to such big blocks high up available as these are where these deals are usually allocated. Pity they couldn't have done a few more deals to shift some of the remain...

Re: Ireland v New Zealand - Take Two

Bar the injuries the games this Autumn have gone well. A monkey is off our back and we have stepped up. OK starved of front line players we may lack incisiveness but we have way more than we did in the past. Some great young players have stepped up and the coach is going well. Between last years 6N,...
