Re: Kidney OUT

Didn't something similar happen with regard to Brian O'Driscoll last season. Speaking of the greatest Irish rugby player to have ever graced our sport, here is what he wrote in his diary entry for Wednesday 6th April 2005, the day that Declan Kidney announced he was walking out on Leinster and rene...

Re: Question for people who play/played

I'd be very santimonious about Leinster players playing hungover!! I know you're right about this happening and it wasn't that long ago that some of our star players had a different attitude! For any sport - if you're doing sport why on earth would you go on the piss when you know you've got a game...

Re: Ireland v South Africa (Sat 10th Nov, 17:30)

Where is all this talk of six defeats in a row coming from? England, New Zealand x 3 and now South Africa. Were Scotland somehow awarded a game I wasn't aware of it. Looks like Tom McGurk and his cronies got their figures wrong. Good old licence payers money. You're not including the BaBa's game in...

All he needed was 1 cap to show his class and he would have gotten that at Leinster anyway.

Re: Clermont v Leinster 2002

Anyone know what the official crowd was that night? I was still in school at the time but remember Leinster had that policy that schoolkids could go in for free with their parents. We had no tickets so stood outside DBrook asking men could we be their sons for the turnstyle. Probably a group of 8 a...

Re: Michael Bent- Irish Q'd

Your identity is determined by the people around you (family, siblings etc) and how you were brought up to embrace your family's nationality. Basically, I don't want someone like Thomas Waldroum playing for Ireland. Ringing up his mother to determine if the granny was, in fact, born in the UK. We'v...

Re: Kearney/Isa injured

IRELAND AND Leinster have been dealt a decidedly ill-timed blow with the news that Rob Kearney is to undergo an operation on his troublesome back and will be sidelined for around 10 weeks, and to compound this, Leinster will also be without Isa Nacewa for an estimated four to six weeks after he sust...
