He's been playing on the wing in our H Cup games this season, so has not been quite as involved in general play as he was at 15 last season while R Kearney was injured.

Re: Nathan Hines is leaving

The IRFU had a very valid point in not re-signing him, he would just have turned 35 in November after returning home from the RWC and then he possibly would have been involved in the Scotland 6N team. I know that he subsequently retired from International rugby after the RWC, but perhaps it was part...

Re: Four Games in a Row

We will have four tough internationals in a row. Will Dekko now finally have to rotate his squad and really use his bench to it's maximum? Or will he flog the same 15 to death? What would you do? Deccie will do the latter I was watching Shaggy on RTE this afternoon and it was put to him about Irela...

Re: IRFU & no 16th man at the Aviva

Rory Best used to get it when he started a game ahead of Flannery. Some of the abuse he used to get at home games was disgusting. A pathetic element that are angry about something in their life. It's been happening for quite a while, I was at "the foot & mouth" postponed game in 2001 ...

Re: Steven Sykes

Here's a left field one for a short term deal: Bob Casey! One of our own and can't remember him playing for LI (certainly in the HEC) this season. He's a big unit and smart with it. It would be a sentimental favourite for those of us who remember him and a fitting coda for a prodigal son. Should be...

Re: Leinster books

I disagree, I loved 'the final through the scrums' bit. Not sure what people were expecting from it, but I enjoyed it. Yeah, it was a good idea to do the final through the scrums. However, what I was hoping the book migh reveal was some insight into the dressing room, the characters, the personalit...

Re: Change to NIQs

It was interesting watching the Ulster v Munster match on RTE last night. Donal Leinhan seemed to share the views of most of the posters on here that it would not be a good thing for Munster / Leinster / Ulster. However, Frankie Sheehan seemed far more positive. Even going so far as to suggest that ...

Didn't see D'Arcy being benched, but like the look of the team. What's going on with Healy though? Dunno. Looked in great form when he came on last week and was sure he'd start this week. Maybe he's carrying some small knock we don't know about. He tweeted yesterday evening that he'd had a shite da...
