Re: Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

In fairness if Munster do manage to pull off an unlikely victory against a full strength Leinster then it would not be a stretch to say that Munster have made a return. The win is more likely than not. A win won’t mean Munster have made a return, it would simply be a good but meaningless result. Mu...

Re: Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

Hadn’t heard that one. He certainly made it fairly convincing ruse by also having no form when he returned. I mean, I love a good conspiracy. But why would they discipline him for an undisclosed offence and do nothing after threesomegate? What’s Tadgh’s supposed offence? Did he poo in someone’s pin...

Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

Good team and likely to be pretty spot on — I think we’ll start Cronin however. Set piece is Munster’s major strength and our lineout has only vaguely functioned when Cronin is on the pitch. Controversial! Actually think there’s a a good chance that will happen! Jimmy has been excellent and we alrea...

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

I wouldn’t cut Kelleher, but sadly it does seem like Adam Byrne could be deemed surplus to requirements. He hasn’t played in over a year. Not sure how much we would be paying him but his salary would probably come close to funding two development contracts for Sylvester / O’Sullivan.

Re: Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

The gap has definitely been narrowed. Munster have greatly improved, we, for the most part, have stayed the same. The same strengths and the same weaknesses as the last season. It’s been a fascinating watch. So much investment has gone into the Munster project over the last few years with Carbery be...

Leinster Squad 20-21

The squad isn’t that big - only one player more than Munster in the senior squad. 45 players is a pretty standard size. Seems larger because of heavy academy involvement. We have 5 players in year 3 of the academy so they’ll be in line for promotions / the chop. Personally I think only backrow is a ...

Is that so obvious now? Without Covid, I agree he wouldn’t be going anywhere, but under financial pressure we will have a fight to keep Frawley on our hands I’d imagine, maybe Sexton is cut loose to preserve the youth contracts?

Re: Stuart Lancaster joining Leinster

Yeah, family seems like it has always been a huge thing for Lancaster. I think he’s from Leeds, right? Sale are based just outside Manchester so would be an hour drive or so from his family, so it certainly looks like the perfect fit from that perspective. Would be a massive shame to lose him, feels...

Re: Leinster v Ulster Fri 8th January 2021 19:35 EirSport

Don’t know if physics are different up north but the amount of times Brace has called “backwards” for Ulster knock ons must be double digits at this point.

Yeah, just don’t understand how bad it’s been. 8/8 with Cronin, 0/3 with Tracey. It can’t be only down to the hooker though could it?

Lineout was great with Cronin on. Lose 2 from 2 as soon as he’s off.

Re: Leinster v Ulster Fri 8th January 2021 19:35 EirSport

Very disappointing to come out net -6 points from a 10 min period with one extra man. While Ulster seem to have conceded more penalties overall, we’re being pinged in kickable places.

Still think we look a lot better than Ulster, and a lot more likely to score tries.

Re: Leinster v Connacht Sat 2nd 19.35 Eir Sport

In fairness to the lineout, it has been much better since Cronin came on and Toner went off. Not sure what the factor was, either Cronin’s throwing was much better or we removed our most obvious target, but I don’t think we lost one since the 50th minute.

Lineout shambles and breakdown calamity combo. Match summed up in 5 seconds there.

Re: Leinster v Connacht Sat 2nd 19.35 Eir Sport

Yeah, the inexperience is really showing here. This will be a bonus point win for Connacht. Not much we can really do about this, the team is barebones and largely have even more inexperience on the bench.

Re: Leinster v Connacht Sat 2nd 19.35 Eir Sport

Haven’t seen us so badly dominated in the break down in a long time. 5 breakdown penalties so far by my count.
