Re: Leinster v Salarysins

This is an internal English matter afaic. But the lack of remorse from Saracens, top to bottom, must be galling to Exeter who are the real victims of all this.
And Billy Vuniploa will have to renounce those Premiership medals if he ever wants to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Re: Munster Rugby - Semi Conscious, the Series Finale??? - 2020/21

Reading match reports, that was impressive from Munster. They're finally following Leinster's example and giving their young players a run of games. Maybe their hand has been forced by the IRFU, but the result is the same - they're doing something that is good for them & Irish rugby rather than jus...

Re: Benetton v. Leinster, Sat 10 Oct, 1715hrs

Lowe’s 33rd try for Leinster. Any chance he could become our record try scorer? Probably not with his likely involvements with Ireland from this year on. Still a long way to go to catch Shaggy's 69 tries. Puts him level with Dr.Phil though. Ross Byrne closing in on 5th place for most points for Lei...

Re: Corona Virus

I'd say Donald Trumps treatment costs about 10k per dose and requires hospitalisation and therefore not an option. When they know what exactly makes people react to cv19 we can move to strategic shelter etc. I will never forget watching my 36 yr old super healthy wife crying for breath. We will nev...

Good god, ridiculous from POM there. The elbow drop? Ridiculous. He could be gone now.... Also the Scarlets player doing the knee slide just as Farrell scores, dunno why that's tolerated. This. Should have been at least yellow for that. I actually thought that was what they (TMO/ref/nigel) were loo...

Re: Leinster V NG Dragons RDS Fri 2nd Oct 20:15

JCBs kicks to touch lately have been really good. Gets great yardage.
Dragons are a much improved side but their lineout was shocking.

Re: Pro 14 2020-2021 season

I might be in the minority here, but I think this is ridiculous. The idea that you make a 19,000km round trip [Durban to Dublin, return] to fulfil a regular season fixture is absolutely crazy. It is mind-boggling. On an environmental basis alone it is irresponsible. To my eyes, this is a Celtic Tig...

Personally think its nuts . In case you haven't noticed, the Pro14 has been doing this for a number of years. Super...
