Re: Sean O'Brien autobiography: Fuel

Thanks for posting that link. Still not sure if Sean has played for London Irish since the restart. Think he had 40 mins in first game back and nothing since.

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

Fun to watch and much to like. JVC super, high tempo and super scrum half work. Ruddock in beast mode, super to see and Ryan, Baird and Keenan all looked great too. Fullback seems to be sorting itself out. Fardy had a good game too with suitable amounts of skullduggery.... For me Ruddock has to be ...

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

Fairly sure he was out taking part in the pre match drills against the first 15 in the matches since lockdown. He's been pictured in training aswell so i think it's a selection issue personally.

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

If ruddock doesn't get any game time soon then it's basically a massive 2 fingers stuck up at him. He was badly missed against sarries imo. We aren't a huge size by any means and a guy like Rhys is perfect when we need a bit more physicality. He may aswell head off if Cullen and Lancaster have decid...

Re degz: how do you know? Has anyone from the club actually said there is no money? If they decide not to sign someone I dont think it will be because there is no money available, it will be because they want to stick with homegrown players.

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

We will always be fine in the pro 14 or whatever it will be soon. Would also like to see rhys given a long overdue start this week. He's gone from, euro squad guaranteed spot to a stay at home and watch it on the telly, in a very short space of time.

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

Bit of a worry re leavy. Dragons at home would be perfect to give him 40 mins. Let's hope its just them being very protective rather than a setback from his knee injury. Is parker a tighthead or a loose? Tighthead He will be getting minutes soon enough then. Bent wont keep going forever. Porter wil...

Re: Leinster Scrum Coach

Maybe the problem is in their conditioning. Look at Healy and Porter's shape. They're muscular but lean. The hookers are too. Compare them to Saracens trio who all looked like they were bulked up as much as possible. It was looking like bodybuilders Vs strongmen. The extra timber Saracens were carr...

It said he committed an act of foul play but couldnt prove he had made contact with his head. Is that not a bit contradictory?

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Completely agree. We are too nice. We should have been in the refs ear asking what we needed to do and im astounded why not one senior player did not ask the ref why was there not a yellow card for the high hit on Sexton? The same player who should have been in the bin then turned the ball over minu...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

I never said we had an old team. I said yesterday those 3 looked like old men. The fact is they are all past their prime, Healy in particular. As soon as Cronin loses his pace he will be the same. Dev has always kept himself in great shape and will be needed for the pro 14 and a few group games but ...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

We were very nieve today, first half was crying out for us to play low risk rugby and play for field position. Possession for possessions sake is not a good thing. Sexton didn't control the game at all which is becoming a regular occurrence against the top teams. The pack got beaten up, we need to ...
