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

I was talking about Ronan Kelleher there, who has imo regressed quite a bit from his performances at the start of last year, certainly in terms of confidence. As for the rest I'm not saying these guys have 'regressed' just that many were putting in equal if not better performances last year. Doris ...

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

Jaysus there's a lot of stretching there RTB. Don't know how you can say our squad has improved 'substantially' when we've lost depth through leavers and injuries and were down to academy players in the backs for a few games. A lot of the guys you mention there were arguably in better form last yea...

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

Fair play to Brace for penalising McGrath there Hopefully it (and the emphasis on enforcing that law) will be the kick up the hole McGrath needs. The difference when he came on for JGP was glaring. So good at every aspect of the game apart from the most important one for a 9. JGP didn't pass well e...

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

Whenever I worry that Josh is going to fall by the wayside and get leapfrogged by all the other 7 options he goes and puts in an enormous shift. He was good tonight. Left nothing out there and showed some lovely skills. Him Ruddock and Doris is a hard backrow to overlook at based on the performance ...

What do the bookies have for how many minutes Sexton lasts for?
Sounds pretty unethical for a bookmaker to give odds on that

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

Has Dooley fallen off a cliff or have I just made an indelicate enquiry? I'd say only Benty is more deserving of a break than Dooley at the moment. Dooley has racked up a huge amount of minutes and earned a rest. Combine that with Healy and Byrne needing a few more minutes themselves and this was a...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

While I like what D'arcy generally writes, the very concept of a journalist moaning about accountability is the absolute height of hypocrisy. We have just seen a golden example of a "journalist" from the very same publication D'arcy is writing from display his complete disdain for the very sport he'...

Re: Leinster vs Cardiff, Nov 22nd, 5.15pm

I assume Frawley was given kicking duties in anticipation of starting him at 10 next week (this week now I guess) with Hawkshaw as cover and give Harry a much needed rest. I can see them resting Penny also (but his display last night did not look like he needs it!) It's great to see the young guys g...

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Can anyone explain, why Leavy is 23 and not 20 or 21? Ii's not as if he'll be playing in the centre or the back three. Simple logistics of jersey sizes. Leinster would expect a lot of uses for their match days jerseys and would have them printed well in advance. Given how rare it is to have a 6-2 s...

No, I think I represented you quite accurately . Why? Feel free to take it to PM if you'd like. You've made the same point in a few different locations across the net and gotten similar responses - I think this is definitely a case of you not communicating correctly. Really?

No, I think I represented you quite accurately . Why? Feel free to take it to PM if you'd like. But you're always happy to bullishly back a claim rather than seeing the other side of the argument so I'm keen to hear Dave Cahills latest justification on why he feel's his opinion is the most valid.

If they're unwilling to compromise about something as inconsequential as rugby I'd hate to see what their priorities are in the rest of their life says the guy unwilling to compromise and just null the season despite the "unprecedented pandemic". Nice one Dave. Misinterpret a post and goad said pos...

Re: Pro14 season suspended

The organisers clearly do not want this season declared null and void. And I empathise with that. It is a horrible look and if it can be avoided it should. Working under the assumption that no more games can be played, the team with the most points should be declared winners (something that is 100% ...

Re: Sean O'Brien

I wish him well but with his style of play, his injury record and the physical nature of the premiership I have my doubts over providing value for money for l irish when you consider his salary. Heard something along the lines of a certain number of appearances needed for full salary to kick in. Ba...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

"Luke's kick" was recovered, ffs. He didn't give away possession. James Ryan went on a trundle, got isolated and was penalised for holding the ball on the ground. If anyone's at fault its the pack, not the scrum-half. So why is he forever getting all the blame? Kicking the ball out and going off fo...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

I thought we were out-muscled in the second half of the final last year. Saracens were able to get over the gain line more easily than we did. Don't recall it being an issue in the QF the year before so hopefully we'll be able to correct this time around. We also had 2-3 entries into their 22 with ...

Re: Leinster v Glasgow Fri 28 Feb KO 19:35

For a match that was signalled in advance to be a potential banana skin, that was impressive. Very enjoyable as well to see the two young out halves get more experience in tricky enough conditions. Baird definitely one for the future but will be interested to see if he can bulk up a bit over the ne...

Meeting in Paris today to decide the next steps. Could well have a decision early this week on the France fixture.

Two very good sides considering we are in the middle of the 6 nations.
