Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

McBryde confirms Leavy has had setbacks: “He took a full part in training today. So we’re just monitoring how he goes. He’s had a pretty bumpy journey to get back to full fitness. “Little things have cropped up for Dan, but he’s kept himself in a positive mindset throughout and took a full part in t...

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

I’m looking for players to show they have potential to be good European or international standard. We haven’t had any in Leinster even going back to Reddan and before him. Luke McGrath helped us win a European Cup and has played 19 times for Ireland. I never understand why we choose to rewrite hist...

Really Hope we get to see Dan Sheehan Friday. Potentially better than RK?
Pretty unlikely.

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

Hold on, are you saying that 71 times capped, triple Heineken Cup winner (all as a starter) Eoin Reddan wasn't a 'Good European standard' Mildly? Or am I mis-reading that?! i'm not saying it, he is. I’m looking for players to show they have potential to be good European or international standard. W...

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

odd to say that Patterson has looked upto the grade and others haven't.. when exactly did this occur? Gilsenan was excellent for Michaels in 6th year, as was Kenny for Zaga. So to say there has been no standout 9's in schools rugby in a decade, well I wouldn't agree. Kenny struggled with injury out...

After training with the Ireland squad at the IRFU High Performance Centre last week, Craig Casey, Harry Byrne, Dave Kearney, James Tracy and Fineen Wycherley have returned to their provinces. James Lowe will remain with the National squad.

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

There is a welcome return to full training for three players as Dave Kearney (hamstring), Ciarán Frawley (facial injury) and Dan Sheehan (cheekbone) will all take to the field in UCD today. Dan Leavy is also expected to step up his training load this week as he continues his return from a knee injur...

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

Our famous squad depth is starting to look stretched. Shame Sheehan is injured (presume that’s why Tracy is training with the Ireland squad, rather than him?). I see nothing coming through at scrum half, that is anywhere near the required standard so let’s hope Luke can play himself back into form ...

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

Yeah I can see that.. personally I don't think leinster's young 9's have played enough rugby between 19 and 22 to develop . Patterson, HOS & Foley haven't played 9 consistently at AIL level and given they weren't primarily 9's in their school years, that's an issue. I hope Gilsenan makes the academ...

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

you'd wonder why... re: scrumhalf play.

it's a difficult one.. is it coaching, confidence, lack of ability?

I wonder if sub-academy players will be used in the 7's games later in the month, if they go ahead.
