Re: Wales v Ireland 2019 6N (The Match)

It is interesting reading the criticism of Murray and to a lersser extent of Sexton on the site. In the majority of games it is the forwards who determine the advantage. Unfortunately the Irish pack were very much 2nd best yesterday.Healy was a penalty machine. Best was worse than Cronin v Italy.Fur...

Re: Canada Test 12/11/16, 19:15

This team would be a good match for the Maoris who I would imagine are significantly stronger than Canada based on their display against the USA.

Re: Ulster v Leinster 2nd May

Good to see Madigan start but hard to figure what criteria MOC is using for selection of the no.10. Maybe he is just drawing straws.

In addition I am confidant that JS would not influence selection process for a match of this importance.

Re: Time to go MOC

I was thinking about what MOC has added or maintained at Leinster and the answer is zip! Sure we lost some players from last year but we have also gained some including McCarthy,Gopperth and the South African ZK. Have any of these guys improved the essence of the team? Not really and that is the mai...

Very poor performance.

Re: Leinster vs Munster March 29th

Will not be surprised if McFadden does not make the 23 for this game or next week.
He has been pretty ordinary since his return from injury

Re: Ireland v Italy

Have to say that no matter how you try to address the selection it is disappointingly ultra conservative!
Suitable alternatives were available and an important opportunity has been lost by JS.
I would say a Connacht team would be favorites to beat that Italian selection.

Re: England V Ireland 6 Nations 2014

I was wondering if the current fate of Zebo wrt to the Irish extended squad has been predicated by his performance on the N. American tour last year. If I recall just prior to his departure for the Lions in Aussie, he had a dreadful game against the USA and maybe this is the real reason why he is ex...

Very disappointed for Sexton.He really cost us the match with this poor kicking.The game was very similar to last years 2nd test in NZ.

Re: Ireland v All Blacks

One change worth considering is to bring in Trimble on the wing and let McFadden have a run at 13!

Re: Leinster v. Castres

Leinster were really lucky.If Castres had converted the penalty to make it 10-9 it would have been an interesting final 20 minutes.
Luke was the best of the backs and is well entitled to his opinions,
Madigan still treated poorly
MOC gotta go!

Re: Leinster v. Castres

More bad news for Madigan.
This is a game that Leinster will win comfortably with or without Gopperth.
This was an ideal opportunity for MOC to involve some others and indeed show some belief in Madigan

Re: Leinster v. Castres

Maybe Madigan was carrying an injury last week.
It was somewhat strange that he was the only sub not to have a run.
Could have replaced RK or Darce. Other possibility is that MOC does not rate him as we do...

I would like to see us get one of the young Ulster centres either Olding or Chris Farrell and we could ship them up one of Bent or Furlong
