Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

A 32 year old who left us after some success but some clear flaws in his game, struggled to cement a starting place in two mid table Top 14 French & Premiership sides and has had a very up and down season resulting in him now being third in line behind Burns & Lowry at 10. If you examine that profi...

We can only pray that TF and AP make it back in one piece from the lions.

Re: Connacht v Leinster Rainbow Cup Sat 8/5 19.35

Flash Gordon: "Exactly. Every elite player in Britain and Ireland will regard this as a career pinacle. People might not care individually but the players and coaches see it differently. Regarding it as a "makey uppy" team is ridiculous." That may well be so. Personally, I follow the Lions tours in...

Re: Connacht v Leinster Rainbow Cup Sat 8/5 19.35

Well, this thread has been well and truly hijacked. I hope that our selection and performance against Connacht is focused solely on winning the game and illustrating that our Squad is superior to others within the Pro14 and that our players can produce their best in any competition. As I don't unde...

Re: Connacht v Leinster Rainbow Cup Sat 8/5 19.35

I'm an odd fish in that I couldn't give a flying f%~k about the lions. This is a recent enough conversion as I used skip work to watch mid week games into the 2000's. I'm not certain when it happened, probably the 2001 Oz tour and I also don't have any specific reason for the change. Part of it is ...

How do you. know someone doesn't care about the Lions?

They'll relentlessly tell you how little they care about the Lions.

We get it!
I doubt I’ve mentioned it on this forum in the last year.

I'm not really sure why we box kick so much on Larmour's wing. He is quite poor in the air.

Re: European Cup Semi-Final: Away to La Rochelle, Sunday 2nd of May 3pm

Agree here - he’s been playing out of his skin in what I have to warn you is a brilliant team. Botia is the best player Henshaw has faced in a long time and I don’t really see a weakness. They are in better nick than the French teams of old, well coached, with superb players. I think they are a ste...

Re: European Cup Semi-Final: Away to La Rochelle, Sunday 2nd of May 3pm

Not sure about the fitness issue with LaR. From what I remember Skelton went the 80 versus Sale and he was always a solid 50 minute man. Maybe ROG has found his engine or the game was slow but it didn’t seem slow to me. Lost a bit of weight alright. We still have to move their pack though. Agree he...

Re: Rainbow Cup Rd 1: Saturday, 24 April: Leinster v Munster – KO 7.35pm, RDS Arena

Well that was very poor. It wasn't a meaningless game, it was a game in our domestic cup competition and it was an interpro against a provincial rival, and in that regard our performance was very disappointing. The result is one thing, but for so many supposedly promising players to phone one in is...

Re: Rainbow Cup Rd 1: Saturday, 24 April: Leinster v Munster – KO 7.35pm, RDS Arena

At the end of the day, almost nobody from 1-10 will start next week. Maybe Baird will start alongside Toner, but more than likely Baird will be on the bench and Ryan will start. I can't see Conan being dropped regardless of how well Doris plays. If Munster lose a 7th game in a town against a 2nd ch...

Re: Michael Alaalatoa signs for Leinster

How long do you think it would take a lad who played LH at U20 to get up to speed as an international LH? 1 year? 2? What a waste of a significant part of a players career. Porter has covered loosehead at International level as recently as Feb 2020 against Scotland having to go up against Fagerson ...

Re: Munster Rugby - Semi Conscious, the Series Finale??? - 2020/21

Zebo is a good player and Munster fans love him. Was fullback a big position of need for them? No it wasn't. They'll wind up with a bit of wastage in the back three, but to be honest they had that once they signed Gallagher. I wonder “what’s the story” with Shane Daly. He was a serious upwards traj...

Re: Munster Rugby - Semi Conscious, the Series Finale??? - 2020/21

What about the argument that he's a good signing but the money probably could've been invested with more impact elsewhere? I think that's the key point out of all of this. Like clearly signing an IQ 31 year old outside back with the record of Zebo at a reduced rate is a good signing in isolation. B...

Marty Moore is the best scrummaging tighthead prop in Ireland (and that includes Furlong and Porter) - when he is what passes for fit for marty. He's also a fantastic footballer. But his fitness is an issue, and not in an Ollie - looks out of shape but can go 80 minutes multiple weeks running - way...

Re: Michael Alaalatoa signs for Leinster

Did Ross Byrne play 9 for the under 20’s? Porter is a TH, a very very good one. They are like hens teeth. Why mess with that? There are lots of reasons but you didn't answer my question. The answer was no and it's not ridiculous to think that a guy who made his way up as a LH could then revert back...
