Re: Denis Leamy

Maybe it's my memory playing tricks on me but I remember Leamy as the head-first charging nutter technique of his generation, really only topped by Woody. Nothing wrong with your memory although Woodie was probably his idol. I have recollection of a post from a current and long time poster on this ...

A Saffer told me once that the nearest thing we have in this part of the world to Bulls fans is the those genteel lads and lassies at Rodney Parade only more one eyed.

Re: Enforcer Second-Row Options

That the best rumour I read since Robbie Deans was spotted in Ranelagh a few years ago.

Re: Spectators in RDS ON 11TH June v Dragons?

It was great to be back at a match again and a great evening for a match also. I never realized how much the players communicate during a match, I guess you don't hear it when there's a big crowd. Bit of a downer not being able to easily get a pint beforehand and I though the Gardai standing outsid...

Re: Anti Social Behavior

I took a walk around town yesterday morning. The streets in the Grafton St area were/are absolutely filthy. It was depressing. The city council have done jack during the various lock downs to maintain and clean the streets and footpaths. Dirty old town. It was depressing.

Re: Friday's Rave

Had the pleasure of talking to Padraig twice. Once where we happened to be playing up in Stackstown the week before he won his 2nd Open where he was practicing. Really nice guy, excellent pro.

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

If I can use the phrase "Fur coat, no knickers" Munster have opted to spend their money on frivolities such as Zeebs and the shiny new Saffer but not sticking with the nuts and bolts of a prop who will see you through a sh*tty night in Limerick or Swansea in upcoming Pro14/16.

Re: is the Rainbow Cup still going ahead?

All that's missing from this farce is the announcement that the final is being played at a neutral venue halfway between the NH Pro14 teams and SA in Nairobi or Tripoli.

Re: Friday's Rave

+1. I was in City West last Saturday for my AstraZeneca flavoured jab. It was ran and conducted with what I can only describe as military precision. Kudos to the logistical team who put everything in place. However I am hearing the MVC for Meath at Simonstown GFC is a bit of a sh*tshow.
