Re: Silly Season - Random Leinster Queries

Reggie, after talking to his missus took a year unpaid leave from his work & asked Leinster to let him train full time with them - unpaid. He reckoned he had what it takes to make it as a pro & wanted to give it a shot. So no doubt he was out of shape when he turned up on that first day and his gamb...

Re: NZ V Ireland 2nd Test

Great to see the mens team show some fcuking pride, unlike the ladies team in Poland last week.

Re: Munster Thread 2011-2012

Very sad news to hear alright. He was a fine player for Munster, Ireland and The Lions. As was said above, remarkable family for 3 brothers to have toured with the Lions. He will be missed in both Red & Green.

Re: Any Point Having A Season Ticket?

Ah come on, it's still great value. You also get free into the A games which can be fun too. I'm raging that I didn't get a ticket too, but at least I had a 1 in 4 chance. Better than a kick on the bottom. True enough about value for games in RDS, however IF Leinster Rugby had of only given each se...

Re: Barca like or kilkennyesque

I was heartned to hear Jerry Flannery on Newstalk this morning saying that the first time he was at a match in Croke Park was the first rugby game there v France when he was on the bench. He said he was not much into GAA. I'd compare us to the West Indies Cricket team in the 80's & early 90's when V...

Re: George Hook

Calling for Joe Schmidt to be fired after four games in September 2010, completely unfair criticism of Heaslip, SOB, BOD, Sexton, Luke Fitz etc. I agree completely with you. Stephen Jones in the Sunday Times works on the same principals as Hook, trying to provoke reaction, by making outlandish stat...

Re: Players Fitness for Quarter Final

I bet if you asked any of the 8 starters or 2 replacements from Leinster playing for Ireland this weekend which level, 6N V Pro12 they would prefer to play - I think there would be only one answer, and it aint v the Hairsprays.

Re: Against the Head

Was he the one who coned the term, "Lady Boys" for the Leinster team? He was indeed. With friends/former players like Franno, who needs enemies? But his heart was in the right place. I don't think having fans with typewriters does any good to anyone ... oh wait ... Niall Kiely's ahem pre ...

What a load of b*%&!cks of a show. RTE go to the trouble of getting S Horgan, A Quinlan & F Sheehan on the panal, to discuss rugby for an hour, yet the lads got to talk for about 8 minutes because of highlights of AIL, U20s, a review of the opening two rounds of the 6N and last weeks Pro12 games...
