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

fair, though I think JR was in better form pre-sarries and lost form while away with ireland and that carried over, I have no issue with Fardy starting as no other lock has really pushed to start ahead of him based on form. on an other topic, I think Dooley is very unlucky to miss out, same goes for...

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

since the return to play Fardy has been a safe bet for two stupid penalties a game

still brings a lot to the team but to suggest he was in good form pre-sarries, would be wrong.

Re: Leinster Academy 20-21

Doing a review of the academies and you'd probably say only Tom Clarkson is the best academy prospect at his position in the leinster academy when comparing to the other provinces. Obviously theres bee quite a few top talents leave the leinster academy early in recent seasons but it is probably at ...

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

No sign of Bent or Dev in the training photos, so I wouldn't be certain that it was a choice to pick Clarkson or not to pick Dev. One guy who was pictured at training, and who I would have expected to see involved, is Ryan Baird. Toner trained on Monday anyway. Baird's performance against Ulster A ...

Is there any truth in Peter Smyth being seconded to the Munster academy position?
Yep he coached Munster A to a win over Leinster.

Certain rumours saying Connacht and Ulster coaching at Irish Under 20s led to bias in certain selections
For the irish 20s squad?

Leinster have a coach too fwiw.

Plus those coaches have nothing to do with the leinster sub academy.

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

to be fair JVG has only won 1 game in 9 against Leinster and he has resorted to silly comments in the media this week, so he is clearly desperate for this win so he can point to progress.

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

Leinster are favourites and rightly so. If Leinster pick their strongest squad bar the players who are injured, then on paper they should hammer Munster. Leinster have the first and second choice Irish internationals in more than one position. If Leinster lose it is because they have been poorly co...

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

In fairness if Munster do manage to pull off an unlikely victory against a full strength Leinster then it would not be a stretch to say that Munster have made a return. It won't be a full strength leinster side at the weekend. Really, that’s a shame. I was hoping to see 2 full strength teams. Less ...
