Re: Sexton's last season? Outhalf going forward..

N’tmack is a year younger than him. How old were Owen Farrell and George Ford when England played them? 21. Same for Carter & Barrett. I’ve seen this narrative in a bunch of places around N’tamack — there’s 9 days between himself and Harry Byrne, not a year. Also, the path to being picked as France...

Re: Sexton's last season? Outhalf going forward..

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that Harry Byrne is not ready to start Champions Cup games. The lad is 21, his time will come, next season probably, and off the bench. Sexton was two years older than Harry is now before he got his first start against Castres in 2008. There’s a scenario howev...

Re: MNR: Glasgow away, 2nd Nov, 8.15pm

I thought Penny was a bit under the radar but very good in defence. Checked the stats there and he was credited with 19 tackles and none missed, highest tackle count in the game. As mentioned elsewhere, Sheehan’s throwing was really exceptional, the second last line out where he picked out Toner bet...

Whoever is doing the crowd noise on Eir doesn’t have a rashers what’s happening. Crowd going wild while Glasgow line up a kick.

TOB's acceleration twice there was unreal.
Has he doubled in size since last season? Looks in remarkable shape.

MNR: Glasgow away, 2nd Nov, 8.15pm

We know McGrath’s pass isn’t top class, but it has really looked poor so far. A few wild ones, but even the short ones loop in such an awkward way that it looks like the pass takes half a second longer to get there than it should.

Re: MNR: Glasgow away, 2nd Nov, 8.15pm

Toner took a long time to get off his knees there. Guess ball was in play for a fair bit of time there but you rarely see us sliced open like that near our line.

Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

The reality here is that Leinster have an abundance of back row talent and you can be sure that that will be spread across the provinces come the summer. Players may not ask for it, they may not even want it, but it will happen. The argument about how attritional 7 is works both for and against us. ...

And a great curse as well :lol:
Thought we were lucky to not give away a couple of penalties at scrum time at the beginning but we improved a lot after that.

Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Leavy has looked ok alright, a few decent carries. I don’t know why but I get a pain in my knee whenever I see him on the ball.

Penny also had a great last 10 mins. Shame he’ll be playing for Munster his time next year [emoji20]

McGrath backing himself a lot here. Quite like it actually, has done reasonably well with his carries.

Poor enough start. Scrum has been minced twice now but we’ve gotten away with it.

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

What are you, a retired censor? This whole forum is driven by rumoje, speculation, subjective opinion and debate. We may as well shut the whole thing down if your logic applies. A national journalist with his ear to the ground believes that the tide has gone out for Leavy and that he and Leinster a...

Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

This is all pure nonsense. What would this journalist even write? Have we ever had an article like it? A man has suffered a pretty catastrophic injury from an elite sporting perspective. Of course there’s a chance the recovery won’t work out. We don’t need some journalist who, realistically knows no...

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Strange to see Leavy at 23. Have a weird feeling he might not get off the bench. I think I would have preferred to see a back 3 option at 23. I think Aaron O’Sullivan and Silvester are off playing 7s which is not great in itself as they’re both third year academy players without a single involvement...

Re: Jonathan Sexton - Leinster Legend & Captain

It’s great to be considered for this award but, as good as Sexton has been for both us and Ireland, he does not deserve to win this award ahead of many of the nominees on that list. The achievements of New Zealand in this decade in particular; two World Cups, 18 game winning streak and an 88% win ra...

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Would it be better to play this game in Donnybrook? Is there any financial benefit to Leinster Rugby in doing so? This keeps coming up. I believe the stance is that we are contracted into playing a number of games at the RDS each season. There may be other factors at play too such as better facilit...
