I'd say he brings new meaning to the shoulder charge.

Saw him play for Leinster A vs the Ireland U20s last season, best player on the pitch by a country mile. Fine player.
He destroyed them. He was asked at one point by the ref to take it down a notch as it was only a friendly and they were only young lads...'but ref, i was on that team myself six months ago' :lol: Hes from Tullow in Carlow, a product of Tullow Community School, and helped coach Tullow in their run to the Provincial Towns Cup final last season whilst injured.

Apology accepted Dave, some players just don't cut the mustard.

Hip surgery and another 6 months break for SO'B. Really tough luck for the guy to definitely miss World Cup. Its a cruel sport.

Brilliant to look back at some of the highlights. He has been the heartbeat of Leinster Rugby for 10 years, never mind what he achieved for Ireland and the Lions. I remember seeing him in that Leinster A game referred to at the start of this thread.......no young player has made such an impact in an A game since. Thanks for the memories.

It's very good. So easy to forget about how big a player he was for us.
The lineout shot is a nice bit of humour too. I'm sad now.

His last game at a RWC was that one against France. I’ll never forgive that charlatan Papé for how he milked that, and carried on milking it at the hearing. No punishment for what Papé did, of course
