Re: RFU reviewing “Swing Low”

Solution seems fairly obvious from a Leinster perspective at least. St Patrick banished snakes from Ireland so that presumably means that there were snakes in Ireland once (twice even) upon a time. Leinster could adopt a new "non de plume" namely "The Rattlers". The Leinster Rattlers has a nice ring...

Re: Corona Virus

Intellectual Rights of the Vaccines. Really not sure on this one and the quick fix that is being suggested sounds like the morally right thing to do. But is it feasible or is it just a political sound bite because regardless of who is manufacturing the vaccines there seems to be a lot of supply chai...

Re: Ireland u20 2021

Any ideas on what's the best starting 15 and bench.
Who are the standouts.
Who are the leaders.

Re: Enforcer Second-Row Options

At least Connacht have talent at lock and up and coming talent. Murray looks promising and there's still Thornbury and Dillane. I'd say Roux is getting a reasonable offer, but he might be willing to forego international selection. Or he might still be negotiating As we saw last night though, Roux i...

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

ROG was talking nonsense (as in there's no way I'm telling Leinster what we planned) when referring to targeting Conan and Henshaw. He knew exactly what our weakest position (neither Conan or Henshaw fit that criteria) was and so it panned out, It's been our problem position for quite some time now ...

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

10 changes to the starting team from last weekend but great that it’s enough to make Munster fans sh!t their pants that Leinster might come for their Rainbow Cup. Full Bore: full speed or maximum capacity...not quite. Long season but you are getting very lazy. I don’t think anyone is shitting it ov...

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

Hmmm Baird wasn't great there. Nor Keenan, but thats due to a lack of experience for both. Keenan well full tilt across and got stepped very easily - Baird went too high and focussed on the ball instead of just stopping the man An old bull and a young bull are standing on a hill looking down on the...

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

Are we back into soft boy territory again. 1. If Gatland actually suggested that Ryan lacked aggression then I'd be worried particularly given that he is our heir apparent Captain. 2. Something to consider, is Henderson more aggressive than Ryan. 3. Who are our most aggressive forwards. Soft boys is...

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

A lot has been said of the huge lumps that others have that we don't, but we didn't lose because of the power of Skelton et al, we lost because we allowed them apply it. They were able to spend the entire game in their comfort zone, trundling up and down their lanes without ever being stressed. Ske...

Now that the dust has settled and hindsight is at 20/20. 1. They wanted it more than we did. At the end of the day ya can't beat a bit of good old fashioned pashun. 2. They were better prepared than we were. Against Munster we looked leaden footed, it was the same against LAR 3. We made selection er...
