Re: Overreliance on St Michael's and Blackrock(?)

Genuine question.

As Colnkeen College and De La Salle Wicklow didn't have rugby teams I have no Ace to grind.

How many of the players on school rugby teams are on scholarships?

If cash runs out/low in particular schools will that mean better players going to other schools on scholarships.

Re: Champions Cup 2020

With the Italy v Nz match cancelled it means the Treviso players got an extra week rest before Europe starts. Shame we have them up first.

Lovely gesture for Rory Best from New Zealand at the end there.

Larmour on at 15. Joey on at 10 or maybe 12 and let's run everything.
And while we’re at it we might aswell make stander take the kicks
Good call. He could certainly penalty kicks from hand.

Re: RWC Quarter-Final v New Zealand

Our basics are poor.

No one running on to the ball.

Bad passing.

No communication.

Not protecting the ball going into the tackle. (See point 1)

Re: RWC 2019

40 - 16 was not a fair reflection of that game.

England should have scored more.

He is more exciting than Australia on the pitch.

Re: Pro14 R3: Leinster v Edinburgh Fri 11th Oct KO 19:35

Ross Byrne's kicking both out of hand and off the tee were not up to his usual high standard on Friday. There was a little bit of wind but nothing that should have troubled him.

Re: Ireland Pool 2019 RWC

Joe confirmed a broken foot for Conan.

Gutted for him personally but really really disappointed for Ireland as he was a different option at 8.
