Re: The Province Formerly Known As Munster 2018-19

25-10 to Glasgow. Wind was a major factor in the game. Munster had all the ball in the 2nd half. But could they turn it into points? Could they fup! Same oul Munster, give them enough ball and they'll balls it up. Joey came on, did nothing of note. I thought Joey did reasonably well. He really is a...

Re: MOC out

Very surprising appointment by Leicester initially.

I watched the Exeter v Leicester game last Saturday. Leicester were such a badly coached team it was shocking. No gameplan, no fight, nothing.

MOC is a lovely fella by all accounts, pity he produces such poorly coached teams.

Re: Manuel Montero

Returned to amateur status. Not sure if he's trying to recover after injuries, or just doesn't want to be pro. Thanks, I found it very difficult to find out where he had gone. He did suffer badly with injuries so hopefully he's just recovering from them and will make a return to the professional ga...

Manuel Montero

Does anybody have any idea where Manuel Montero has gone?

Hasn't played for the Jaguares all season. Not listed in their squad for this season.

Terrific player on his day.

Re: Best Man

I've done it a couple of times; it's a lot of work. Go easy on the sauce. You can kinda clock off after first dances. The mums will be giving you so much work; especially if groom is childhood friend and the mum knows you pretty well. Introduce yourself to hotel manager, find location of safe. Keep...

Re: Best Man

I've done it twice. Once many years ago when I didn't have much experience of going to weddings, and then again many years (and 70+ weddings as a guest) later. Advice I would give the younger version of me: A. If you are bought a suit, it's customary to cover that cost in your gift + a small bit mo...

Re: Best Man

You obviously got the gig because you are a special individual to the groom. Your friendship is above all others for him (well except maybe the new mrs :lol: ). Keep doing what you have been doing it seems to be what he values. I would not think a monetary value is what is important, I am sure your...

Re: Best Man

Never heard of the need for the Best man to Pony up anything like €500 -1000! Did it myself a few years back and think all I gave was a present worth €175 aprox. At the time (Still now) I would give €100 as standard at any wedding. Had to organise the Stag (you always end up a bit out of pocket her...

i have no idea why anyone needs a best man anyway.
Haha, fully agreed but I have to give him something.

Thinking in the region of 500 - 1000 euros.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated..

Re: Leinster Vs Benetton Rugby Sat 19.35 TG4

Reid was never good enough to be considered a serious option at 12 in the future. He's never been consistent enough and looks weak in contact and has little defence when the 12 sets the tone for all the backs. Look at henshaw ane nacewa when they tackle. They relish it, Reid looks he would rather b...
