Re: Rumour Mill

Could make the same argument for our out halves. Cant keep all 4 and give them the minutes they will want. If we have to lose one, I would let ross go and have frawley as back up to Sexton with harry getting mins in the pro 14 games next year. Imo!! I'm sure others will disagree here! Agreed, I thi...

Re: Rumour Mill

Hard to see us keeping Connors and Penny. Along with Leavy and VDF. Connors is having some season; just as Penny had some breakout season. There’s more than three and a half years between them, they’re at quite different stages of their careers. Penny only turned 20 two months ago Connors turns 24 ...

Re: South Africa Trip 2020

Really not sure how to balance this one. Seems likely that anyone who’s going to feature against Saracens is likely to be left behind. The Ireland games being cancelled kind of don’t help either as it’ll be the only chance for many players to get game time between now and then. As for the games them...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Probably Dooley to start and Bent on the bench? I guess Ed Byrne is down the pecking order at the moment. I think scrum is already a major weakness relative to Saracens, so this would be a big blow if Healy is missing. Porter potentially could swap sides too if we want our best players on the pitch,...

Premier Sports is a shambles. Half the game showing a “Back Soon” screen. Not vintage Leinster but job done.

Good luck to him. He’s a very good hooker, just caught behind a bunch of even better hookers.

Leinster v Salarysins

If he is out for the tournament, Ringrose is going to be coming in pretty cold for the Saracens game. I don’t see him being risked for the tour of South Africa, so basically two entire months without a game.

Re: Champions Cup 2020

In the 10 years of its existence it has only once gone to a player that didn't play in the final...and it's 10 years since that happened. So, I can't see either Moala or Cooney getting it. Writing Clermont off already? They’re home to Racing then home to Saracens in the semis. Have a good shot at t...

Re: Champions Cup Final 2020 (tix, travel, accom)

I’m flying into Lyon (€130) and getting the train to Marseille. Station is in the airport and takes about 30 minutes. I’m flying out of Marseille (€70) on the way home. I booked these a good while ago however and it was already on the relatively pricey side so not sure how much joy you’ll have with ...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

We always do pretty badly injury wise from the Six Nations. Last season, we lost Sexton and Henshaw at least for our quarter final. It’d be a disaster if the same were to happen for the Saracens game, we need to be close to 100% for this one. Our prize for winning this would be a semi final vs Racin...

Re: The 2020 Quickening

I think you’re downplaying Munster there. They’ll win their conference, but it’ll be tight. They have six matches in a row that they should win, I’d expect they’ll get at least 25 points there. They face us in the Aviva, they usually up their game there — I’d expect they’ll get a losing bonus point....

Re: Leinster Squad 19-20

Amazing if Fardy is staying on. Exactly the kind of player we need on the books right now as we have a lot of potential at lock but it feels like we’re a year or two out before the likes of Baird, Dowling and Dunne will be ready for prime time.

Re: Treviso v Leinster - Sat 18/1; 1pm your time

I think that’s up there with the worst 40 minutes from a Leinster team since Leo’s first season in charge. I’d say they’re in for some bollicking in the dressing room.

Need a big response. Dint know why we’re going to the box kick so often, we’re so much better than them with ball in hand.

Four penalties conceded in the first 14 minutes. Piss poor from Leinster so far.
