Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Tough one on Kelleher, he’s been very tidy since the return, was especially impressed with his Defence in our 22 against ulster but I’m not surprised to see Cronin back in....huge amount of experience and he’s been lively since the return albeit with less minutes, and I’d imagine him and Toner have ...

Re: Pro 14 final vs Ulster, Sept 12th. Live on TG4 & EirSport

There was a lot of talk on various forums of the younger "more exciting" fly halfs coming through that were going to upsurge Ross Byrne quickly and take the reigns at 10 when JS retired. I'm sorry but Ross Byrne is the man to lead Leinster and any fly half coming through will have to be pretty damn...

Re: Pro 14 final vs Ulster, Sept 12th. Live on TG4 & EirSport

First of all Congratulations to every single one of the squad, some very unlucky guys not even to be in the extended squad last night Real squad effort to have secured that unbeaten run On the game Line out was shocking in the first half, I’m sorry but Kelleher has had 2 blow ups in 3 games and it w...

Re: Pro 14 final, Sept 12th.

I think we’ll see a lot more rotation, particularly up front with the likes of Deegan, Josh and Ed Byrne starting and Ross, JGP and Kearney starting in the backs. After this one you (Hopefully) got three weeks in a row in Europe so now is the time to rest lads. You do realise next week is a Pro14 f...

Re: Pro 14 Semi-final vs Munster, Friday Sept 4th, 7.35pm

So Brace to ref...he’s not great but no frank Murphy so he’ll do This game on Friday could be a box kicking extravaganza, from both sides We know what Munster will bring, they even look to box kick just outside the opposition 22 which we saw against Connacht They’re negative, it’s what they are, it’...

Re: Ulster v Leinster Sat 29th 19:35

Posted on MFans after the game Honestly, if Leinser manage to keep the bulk of the younger talent coming thru while keeping the guys like Ruddock, JVDF, both Porter and Furlong, re-sign Sexton, etc, the other provinces should demand an opening of the books b/c something wouldn't be right. Most, if ...

Re: Ulster v Leinster Sat 29th 19:35

Outstanding stuff from 1-23 Huge pressure on those lads with the 100% record on the line against a loaded ulster side Front row really good, scrum excellent and Cronin’s darts brilliant Excellent platform all night Dev and Ross were outstanding along with Connors and Deegan Josh M is born for maul d...

My view is that he didn't change his line, others differ. If he didn't, its not a penalty no matter if he completely wiped out McGrath - if he did change his line, it is. C'est la vie

Re: Leinster Squad 19-20

No it was Ringrose who kicked through and DK was in support. Murray 100% took Lukey out at the same time though. Brace said it was “shoulder to shoulder” but Murray had blatantly cut Luke off. Don’t know how Brace missed it given that Murray clearly wasn’t heading in the direction of the ball. Murr...

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

Great to have the rugby back up and running Was pleasantly surprised by the standard all things considered, 6 months not playing and it’s near impossible to replicate game intensity so all things considered it was ok Line out was borderline shocking, kelleher getting a free pass on here in my opinio...

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

I’d 100% agree with sentiments on here relating to the “suspect” funding and where Munster are getting it for some of these players A few things bug me big time on this front 1. munster are in serious debt with a stadium deficit budget and poor crowds to go along with it 2. How they still managed to...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Ryan is a big loss. Toner/Fardy is still a great pairing but we'll be relying on them to start 3/4 games in a row if we get to the Euro and Pro14 final. Interested to see how Baird goes though. There are at couple of other contenders as well as Baird to fill in alongsidee either Dev or Fardy. Have ...

Re: Leinster Squad 19-20

I wonder what leinster players may retire/leave at the end of the season, whenever that may be. Rob Kearney is obviously on his way out, seems like McFadden looks likely to join him. Bryan Byrne also confirmed to be leaving. Other possible players? Michael Bent, Sean Cronin, Scott Fardy, Joe Tomane...

The selection Stinks of Joe Schmidt 2.0, not bagging joe by saying that but more his selection policy Seems like it’s the first big name that Farrell could include got the nod because on form this season D Kearney should be in ahead of Earls Not a ounce of football in that back row which worries me,...

Re: Irl v Sco 6Ns 2020

The scrum was a mess (referee?) Absolutely the referee. When a player can bind below the shoulder and pull a player down in front of the referee you know the referee is clueless. Our more stable scrums were where our LH side was near enough to touch that the linesman could see well enough to make c...

Travelled over for the game yesterday and watched it back today and I must say the conditions weren’t reflected on the Tv The pitch was a complete bog and so heavy and added in a greasy ball it really was attritional for those first 40 anyway We defended for the opening 20 mins which was lunacy as w...

Re: Treviso v Leinster - Sat 18/1; 1pm your time

Think we’ll see 2/3 changes possibly...nothing drastic but a team to go and go after treviso from the start and a bench with impact I’d give Cronin and Porter a start, both been very good lately I’d keep Fards and Dev in the engine room and possibly have a BR of Deegan Doris and Connors I’d bring in...
