Con are really grinding out tight wins this Season. Just shows how hard it is to turn them over. Winning IS a habit.

Very hard luck on Navan and disappointed that IRFU did not allow a postponement for this medical emergency. There are two "spare" weekends scheduled for weather postponements and one of these could have been used.

From what I have heard 18 year old Alex Soroka was “instrumental” in Trinity’s performance against Ballynahinch

IRFU and HSE have very different views on how to deal with an outbreak of mumps.

Shame there isnt more comments on the league...

Con will be first in 1A. Garryowen should be safe in a playoff spot. 3rd and 4th spots between UCD, Lansdowne and the cookies

Relegation between Ballynahinch, UCC and Trinity

Highfield close enough to going straight from 2A to 1A in consecutive seasons. 9 clear of chasing pack.
Navan are relegated to 2A. Naas and Mary's fighting to avoid relegation playoffs

Barnhall top of 2A 5 clear of Queens, Cashel. Crescent and Rainey in straight shootout for final playoff spot.
Dolphin bottom. Nenagh 9th. One will be relegated the other in playoffs with the 2B sides

This was obviously flippant comment, but I’m interested to see how the anti-Vax movement develops medium to long term given the current situation

Bioterroist movement. Give them a properly suitable name.
