Re: Pro 14 2020-2021 season

No fixtures with the SA sides. So are they going to be shoehorned into the second half of the season or are we back to a Pro12 for 20/21?

Re: Glass is Full!

It has been a sobering couple of days for me. I don't really do social media as a participant. I for sure dip into things like twitter to read what the crazies are saying, or read other fans forums before a big game to get their feel and expectations on the game or read munsterfans when I am feelin...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

The job of the Pro14 is not prepare teams to be competitive in the Champions Cup. It is a league in itself and valuable in its purpose. It is the determinant of qualificaton for the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup but that is it's sole relationship with either of those tournaments. Does the Scottish...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Could someone please briefly explain the change in the laws or change in its interpretation re the breakdown? I don't think it is a law change, rather stricter implementation of what happens around the jackal...e.g. tackler not rolling away quick enough, is more strictly refereed now and the player...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

strange choice of ARs and TMO all being irish. that said..george clancy couldn't be called a friend of leinster. Joy is from limerick I think. Not so strange in these times. Less travel involved from outside Ireland. And both ARs will be deliberately not want to be seen to favour the Irish side in ...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

For all the media focus on this being a game that Saracens have been targetting since January this is also a game that Leinster have wanted since May last year. I reckon most of this squad would have been disappointed not to get a crack at Saracens on the way to seeking a fifth star; and getting a q...

Will be interesting to see who kicks for them. Goode or Daly?
My guess is Goode for most kicks within normal range and Daly for the long range chances.

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

I think you are missing the point lads. Empty Aviva stadium now or full one in September after sarries lose their players See this is what has been occupying my mind for the past few weeks. If there was a short delay of a few weeks then that could see Big BillyV back in the team, don't want that. B...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

I just feel that on top of the other stuff this will just make Sarries look too much like the victims and I don't think the EPCR will want to be seen as the ones who may have driven the final nail in. Anyway, we'll know in a few hours. Equally EPCR may feel that having Saracens in the competition t...

What intrigues me is who brought it to the attention of EPCR and why?
The articles suggest it was Saracens who brought it the EPCR's attention.

Mind you for accessible tickets the website is already saying that you need to contact Leinster Rugby on tickets'at'leisnterrugby.ie so you might as well email them directly asap. Not sure if your Dad needs wheelchair access or just somewhere not too far from a lift. If the latter plenty of seats st...

Re: Aviva Premiership: something exciting happens

It really is - I'd say, based it must be said on supposition and lot of adding 2+2, that Saracens are wildly over the Salary Cap, far more than the 2million that is being posited. If they were 'only' the 2 mill that everyone reckons, then they wouldn't have a problem with an audit - but the situati...
