Re: Draw for H Cup / Champions Cup 2019

Only player of those three we are guaranteed to be missing is O’Brien. We’ll have to wait and see on the other two but it sounds like Conan should be ok. We still have van der Flier, Fardy, Ruddock plus the likes of Deegan, Doris and Murphy to bench even if we are missing all three of the above. We’...

Re: Joe Tomane

No reason that it should be tongue in cheek. We're down three wingers with long term injuries in Tomane, McFadden and Daly. Tomane is NIE. It's completely reasonable that we should be able to replace at least one of them. Unless it was likely to affect our match day squad for a Champions Cup game, ...

Re: Joe Tomane

Presume the medical joker talk is tongue in cheek, but we have plenty of cover in midfield and out wide for the big games. I think you’d only get a joker if you can’t field sufficiently high quality players in every position in a European game.

Good news on ROL, really hope he’s fit for the Ospreys game.

I’m assuming he’s injured for this one. There’s been no update since he twisted his knee vs Kings.

What is a starting team for this game likely to look like? 1. Bent 2. Byrne 3. Dooley 4. Kearney 5. Moloney 6. Murphy 7. Doris 8. Deegan 9. JGP 10. Frawley 11. Lowe 12. Reid 13. Conor O'Brien 14.

Re: Joe Tomane

If true, it leaves us a little short on center cover with O’Loughlin and McFadden also injured for some amount of time (unclear in O’Loughlin’s case at the moment). Who would be likely to start at 12 & 13 vs the Ospreys for example? I think we’re picking from Noel Reid at 12, Tom Daly or Conor O’Bri...

Re: Leinster's 2nd Row options

Will Fardy get a contract renewal? He’s 34 now, 35 by the time next season starts. I’d hope with the World Cup looming, where we’re guaranteed to lose both Toner and Ryan, we’d retain Fardy for at least one more year, but I think at that age, players push for two years, and I’m not sure the IRFU wou...

Re: Leinster's 2nd Row options

I'm assuming he'll be back for next season? Who knows, I’d say it’s more likely he’ll get released to be honest. I think he’s been involved in one game this season so far. The only factor that works in his favour is that Fardy’s contract is up at the end of this season. But even before then, we’ll ...

Leinster's 2nd Row options

Nagle gone to Ulster until the end of the season. No big loss, but it’s an area we don’t have huge depth in, especially when we’re missing Toner and Ryan.

We’re looking at Fardy, Moloney and Kearney before dipping into the academy. Who would be likely to feature out of Downing, Dunne & Baird?

Where has this whole “use it” call come from? It’s not in the laws. Feels like a cop out for refs not having to give penalties.
Yes, it is in the laws - 19.26 (or 20.10 if you have the old law book)
Nice one, had a read through but missed it!

Good shout here. Looks like we’re picking and going off the base of the ruck a lot this half.

Ridiculous offload from Deegan there. Another intercept try for Kings.

Southern Kings Vs Leinster Nov 4th

Assuming we go on and win this, it will open a nice 9 point gap over Ulster which is excellent at this stage of the season. I’d strongly fancy us winning the next 3 games too (Ospreys home, Dragons away, Connacht home). Will be interesting to see where we stand come December.

Yeah Deegan always looks absolutely excellent to me when he plays. I think he’ll be a top class back row.

These commentators though. Talking about Leinster just getting their second try. Sound like a couple of lads down the pub only half watching the game.
