Re: Leinster A '20-21'

Said it many times that I'm all for us pushing the envelope and don't mind seeing mistakes when we try risky passes or offloads because we need to do it year round to be ready for the big games in Europe (and for Ireland) but I think we've lost sight (at senior and A level) of the need to get our b...

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

Having gotten off to a patchy start i.e. at the end of the 2019/2020 season, I think Allende has been very good for Munster - not just in terms of playing ability, but also in terms of leadership and commitment. Along with Healy, Casey, Daley and Larkham's coaching starting to bear fruit I think he ...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

For decades I read the IT & The Guardian religiously. The latter has sunk dramatically in my estimation since the Snowden revelations, when they caved in to MI6, essentially divested themselves of their best nat-sec writers such as Ian Cobain and Richard Norton-Taylor, stabbed Julian Assange in the ...

Great, something to look forward too! Full strength sides too which is brilliant.

Re: A whiff of Cordite

It's the Irish times. Honestly it's rugby coverage is the least of its worries. They've maintained an obsequious cheerleading of the government all the way to the highest rate of infection in the world, decided that illegal government leaks are just fine. There are lots of fine young journalists in...

To backrower8:

I think you've made your point most cogently - not just now but also in the past. The danger you are pointing out is real, IMO. I'm sorry, if you feel people on here are dismissing your warnings à la Cassandra. I certainly don't.

Murray Kinsella reporting the same at the42.ie. Postponement of Heino fixtures could possibly see Leinster travelling to Limerick to play Munster next weekend.
