Re: Rumour Mill

Glasgow have lost their best (or one of their best) player every year for the last 10 years. That's not a strategic plan, that's lack of funds. 2021 Hastings 2020 Swinson J Gray 2019 Hogg 2018 Russell 2017 Josh Strauss 2016 Nakarawa 2015 Maitland 2014 DTH Van der Merve 2013 Barclay 2012 R Gray J.

Re: Rumour Mill

NO X 3 And end up like Glasgow Light in Exeter The situation in Scotland is different. They only have two teams, so its strategic for them for players to leave to make room for more players to develop Glasgow have lost their best (or one of their best) player every year for the last 10 years.

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

Game was lost by no's 1 to 8. Not sure why everyone is scapegoating a 9 and 10 neither of whom have started a game for Leinster and one of whom is just back from an ankle procedure. Reap what you sow............ If you start all but 1 of your games with either McGrath or Gibson Park don't be surpris...

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

Must be very hard for HOS mentally at the moment. Potentially his last few games as a pro and he's being asked to start against Munster and bench in Europe. Must be messing with his head. Although at least the pressure is off and it's a chance for him to show what he can do. Decent enough shop wind...

https://www.the42.ie/jason-jenkins-munster-5394809-Mar2021/ Where's Deco? So he isn't upset, or gutted as I would have been had Leinster lost. He is resigned that this is Munster's level - I can't even slag him anymore. He may be right, but I think he's missing the obvious: He slags Leo as being on...

Cullen also confirmed that David Hawkshaw picked up an ankle injury in the win against Glasgow Warriors and had a procedure last week. He will be unavailable for a number of weeks as a result.

Jesus that boy is getting no luck. At least its not his knee.

Re: Leinster Academy 20-21

Gladwell talked about it and like most things he vaguely understood it. 10,000 hour rule being another. It's not considered that much of a thing in LTAD as far as I'm aware. You'd have to assume all parents are procreating evenly across the year and so many other things for it to be nearly so much ...

Best player on pitch is a Leinster boy ...... unfortunately its Izuchukwu He's been superb. Whenever I see an explosive athlete at the lower levels I look to see if they're involving themselves in the game or just being chucked the ball the whole time.

Re: Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

Wouldn't agree with that at all. I think he has been really good. Agreed I think the problem with DeAllande for some less educated fans is that he doesn’t carry 100 metres a game and smash opposition, so they equate this as being poor. I have also heard this from Johnny come lately Munster fans, so...

For a marquee player on top tier cash, de Allende has not looked value for money, outshone by centres on half the cash.

Re: 2nd Row going forward

While Fardy has low mileage for his age and is playing in a position where some can play at the highest level until about 40, he's looked a bit slow since the season resumed and is 36 now (37 by end of the season). I wonder is he in decline? On the other hand, it might be that it's taking him time ...
