You have to be kidding me, fully agree hanging is not good enough for them.

I'm utterly devastated he's going a fantastic player and man.

It's not clear. It can't have helped though.

Thanks. Couple of unforgetable pieces of individual brilliance I'll never forget.Notably tries vs Ospreys and Leicester.
Best of luck!

I am really disappointed to hear this. He has given so much to the team since he arrived and without doubt the best FB in Europe for most of that time.
Thank you very much Isa for all the memories. I wish you and your family ever success and good fortune for the future.


To those of you in the know are we likely to see him again or is it always going to be "a week too soon..."

Remember seeing him in his first game for Leinster in Donnybrook - we knew then he was going to be special.
Have had the pleasure of meeting him on a couple of occasions - a fantastic person.

Surprised how much the idea of not seeing him on pitch has affected me!

Best of luck Isa.

He came, he saw and he conquered! Isa to see why we loved him! Gave us his all and then some fantastic servant to Leinster Rugby. Good luck in retirement and remember your kids are elegible to represent Ireland at whatever sport they want!!

Sorry. Just having a laugh.

His missus wants to live in Auckland. The bit about the neighbour I made up. :) (Just in case it turns into a rumour)

I remember when he spoke at a meet the players evening in Old Belvo in Oct’08 shortly after he arrived in Leinster. He spoke about how he appreciated the culture of playing for the big town club, [Auckland / Leinster], whom everyone else in the country dislikes, affectionately known as JAFA’s in New Zealand, Lunsters in Ireland. And just smiled and said ‘Phuck em’.

But, most noticeably he said that he knew he was here to be a leader within the team, especially while the Ireland players were away & that he certainly was.

Thank you for all you helped bring to Leinster over the last 5 years Isa. Enjoy your retirement with your family. You were a different class both on and off the field.

I was at that do. I remember saying to him that the blues were like Leinster and Crusaders were like munster.
He got a bit annoyed about that and said "crusaders are not munster" he wasn't in the place a wet day and he knew the score.

What I meant at the time was they were from the south. wore red and were winning everything. Houw wrong I was about to be on the last bit.
