Re: Wasps QF

A pretty strong Leinster team with a point to prove. May take us 20 mins to get into our grove but we should be far too strong for Wasps. There are a lot of that team looking to cement Lions places and time is running out for them after a dismal 6N. 13 of the 15 have represented Ireland, fully expec...

Re: The Positives!

Ross re-signing is massive, you cant compete without a TH. Really excited about Madigan, Sexton was a nobody when he took over from Dr Phil. Madigan has already shown himself to be an oustanding talent and is someone who probably would have had to leave to get first team exposure. He is only going t...

Re: Rumour Mill

Good source says he's going back to help Bective, steer them towards AIL Div 1A. Gets to keep all the bar money. The sooner he just goes the better, the club and fans need to move on asap and focus on those that will be here next season. Would not be sorry if Sexton did not play for us at 10 again ...

Re: Conway to Munster

It's a lot more than speculation if Gerry "Conservative-Lick-Arse-I-Don't-Want-To-Offend-Anyone" Thornley reports that it's "on the verge of happening" in the Irish Times. More bad news. Is the news really that bad, like Carr he has failed to take his chance, all be it without a run of games. Conwa...

Re: Sexton to Racing

Fact is Racing don't have an earthly of winning the TOP14. Players go there for the bright lights and the pay cheque. Just struck me how much I am starting to dislike Racing, last week they put two fingers up to Leinster and the HCup by playing a weakened team in the HCup. This week they add insult ...

Re: Start Madigan v wasps

When Felipe Contepomi left, a 23/24 year old Jonny Sexton with seemingly fragile confidence stepped up to the plate and lead Leinster to unprecedented success. Now it's time for a 23/24 year old Ian Madigan who doesn't exactly lack confidence to do likewise. While I'm not happy that Sexton is leavi...

You seriously believe going to Toulon would be a better rugby decision ...have you sen their squad?[/quote] Have seen it, can't see the problem, they will be challanging for honours and given the rigours of the French league you don't want to be playing every match.

Re: Start Madigan v wasps

Madigan should start. "Doing what's best for Leinster" is not the same as "doing what's best for Leinster this season". Don't agree Sid, Madigan is more than capable of doing a very good job at 10 in the Rabo and Amlin. I would prefer for Madigan to make his mistakes in the Amlin/Rado this year rat...

Re: Start Madigan v wasps

With the news that Johnny's gone to France next season I think it's time Madigan was promoted to first choice out half. I'm not being bitter about Johnny leaving he was my favorite player, it's hard to turn down a financial offer of that size. But with Johnny going and us out of the Heineken cup we...

Re: Start Madigan v wasps

Frankly, would have Sexton warming the bench for the remainder of the season. He has put his bank balance first, Leinster should now put Leinster first and that would mean giving Madigan as much game time as possible. Will we be looking for a replacement or give Madigan his chance. PS, Great timing,...

That is great news about Flanagan. The more options we can have at lock the better. I remain wildly optimistic that the big 3 will be fit for Friday.

Your points have some merit. But if you are in a competition you should be doing your best to win it, especially if you have the talent otherwise don't go out on the field. Would I be unhappy if we were dumped out in the quarters? No. But I would be shocked and dismayed if we went out and played li...

Re: Heineken Cup - Leinster V ASM Clermont Auvergne

Atmosphere was brutal, the worst I have experienced, outsung by a couple of thousand Clermont fans, shameful. Leinster Rugby do nothing to create an athmosphere, more interested in bumbs on seats. Far too many toffs having dusted off their Leinster scarf looking to be entertained, if this had been a...

Re: Mike McCarthy will join Leinster next season

Connacht currently offer zero chance of winning anything any time soon and for a player in his 30's this move was a no brainer. Connacht seem happy to try and restrict a top player from realising his potential and then blame everyone else for their own inability to offer a realistic chance to compet...
