Re: Munster Away, Saturday Dec 28, 18:00, Eir Sports 1

Nick McCarthy is 3 inches taller and 8 kilos heavier than Osborne. He is taller than all our scrum-half panel - he is not Mile Philips, Terry Holmes or Conor Murray. There is so much debate here about most any player potentially leaving Leinster and especially if they go to Munster. But there was z...

Re: Northampton Saints v Leinster BT Friday 7.45

We have to at least match Montpellier's result against them. If we can better that then well and good. A win would take the pressure to score 5 in Dublin off our backs, while also making it more likely that we would score 5 at home.

Re: Stuart Lancaster joining Leinster

2/ He is appointed Head Coach with Leo exclusively taking over as forwards coach. This would have been straight forward and even logical a few short months ago, but since the debacle down in Munster and the ultimate humiliation of Axel Foley, a man he was already often compared to, there would undo...

Re: Time to privatise the provinces? [Opinion / Article Post

I'm all in favour of this, but I think in the short term, the only rationale for pumping 10m into a province is as a vanity / pr project. You could see the likes of JP, Denis O'B doing it in Leinster or Munster. I'm sure there are equivalents in Ulster (if they haven't been scared off by the Rory Mc...

Re: Leinster v Scarlets

Great selection. Says to the young players that the door has not now closed just because the internationals are back. On the McGrath over Boss, i have no issue on this. McGrath has had plenty of starts and has made a good case. Boss has experience that is helpful with quite a few younger guys, parti...

Re: Leinster Squad 2015/2016

We will need to make a decent start to the league, while I'm all for ensuring that the young guys see some game time, I have no issue with Boss and Bent getting used. Sad for Ferg and Darce, but they will add a layer of strength in depth to the team. I'm starting to feel very hopeful about the year ...

So, Moseley as a pre season friendly. I wonder is the logic to avoid a morale sapping beating at home given the depleted team.
