Re: RWC 2019

So in cliff notes Irish hack version if we win the World Cup Joe is the greatest human ever to live , his over detail is something to aspire to and if we lose in the groups/knockouts Joe lost the dressing room (yet again), the camp was a miserable place, Kleyn missed a line out catch, Sexton, Kearn...

U20 Club 2019/20

And so it begins again..... Slight change in qualification for P1. Positions 1 to 6 from 2018/19 (Clontarf, DUFC, UCD, Lansdowne, Terenure, MU Barnhall) automatically qualify for P1. The last position from last year (Blackrock) automatically got to P2. Old Belvedere who finished 7th last year are in...

Re: Leinster Academy 19/20

Andrew Smith has joined clontarf, the most outrageous singing I’ve seen in a while considering he’s a D4 true blue. Must be getting payed some amount of cash to travel to the Northside and to be fair, it’s an attractive club to join considering they’re the best AIL team in Leinster and usually make...

Re: RWC2019 31-man squad

All the talk will obviously be about who didn't make it, but I'm delighted for Rhys, think he really deserves it and he could play a big role. +1 So often he seems to be the nearly man. Doing all the donkey work and missing out on selection for finals / ireland teams He certainly is someone you'd l...

Re: New European Jerseys

The pattern of the Leinster Rugby European jersey takes inspiration from meteorites that fell from the sky and were used by the Laighin people to create their iron spear. These meteorite formations form the graphic design of the jersey paying homage to the tale of the metal of the Gods, providing b...

Re: Sevens

So the groups are out for the European Qualifier where Ireland's men could qualify for the Tokyo Olympics in July. Easy enough- they only have to win the tournament which includes France, England and Spain in Colomiers on 13/14 July. If they don't the teams that finish 2nd and 3rd go into the final...

Re: Ireland u20 2018-2019

Baird at 6 (he played a lot of last game there) is interesting. Have Wycherly and Clarkson been benched to give opportunity to the reserves or because the management view that they may be running on empty. Given how many injuries they have shipped, they are doing well to put out a team like that. Ho...

Re: Ireland u20 2018-2019

As an Irish rugby supporter I'm very UNused to beating a side with Redpath, Sleightholme or DeGlanville in it.
I know Cammie Redpath is Bryan's son. Any idea how the other 2 are related to Jon and Phil?

Re: Pro14 Final Glasgow v Leinster 18.30 Sat 25th May

Outrageous suggestion that Sexton trys to kick Physio. He clearly has cramp in his right leg (continues to have treatment as hogg is being treated) and what he is actually doing is getting himself clear of Hogg so the Physio has unfettered access to Hogg. Quite happy that people think it's a Red Car...

Re: Enforcing the Laws

On balance its far more positives than negatives, but it would be silly for the IR...

Re: Enforcing the Laws

Terrible article. Hysterical and will put parents off allowing their kids to play rugby - get rid of the breakdown and it's just rugby league. Rugby is a game with inherent risks and while there has been laudable progress on player safety (e.g concussions, tip tackles, high tackles, blatant thugger...
