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

Yeah, Henderson was a let down at international level between the last Lions tour and this calendar year. He was excellent this year though which is why I was saying that Ryan was the third best Irish international lock on this year's form. Itoje was really poor this six Nations and he's travelling ...

Re: 2021 Lions

Jags won the draft. Highest rated player in 10 years is available and they get him. Pat's 2nd. They get a guy who was expected to be 3rd but fell to 15 and is is exactly what they need. Leinster did great. Conan and Porter picked (good for them and no more Porter to loosehead nonsense). Guys with i...

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

Can we get the Lions talk on the Lions thread? It's interesting stuff but it's all over the place at the moment. Good point. The Grainbow cup does struggle to get any traction at the moment to be fair. It's missing its big draws and the season with these teams already ended. The other thing is bigg...

Re: 2021 Lions

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

Ask an England supporter if Ryan lacks a "nasty streak", not the Irish media. I only remember that aggression in one match V England in Twickenham. I just think he could be more aggressive. Anyway, I was asking you lot, not an England supporter They remember it, as do Sarries fans. It's a narrative...

Geography is politics. The term British Isles is only a valid term if you are a British imperialist. It sets out your stall for sure.

Re: 2021 Lions

Absolutely, makes sense if we have two crocked tightwads. And the CJ Stander call up for injury too. Particularly as his durability would be a positive point for a touring squad. As for Kelleher: lineout has not been an issue recently unlike most of the hookers he has played against who have struggl...

Re: 2021 Lions

Yeah, I mean you can imagine Itoje will come good and stop being such a penalty machine (though not to his top form) but Daly? I guess he'll be less disinterested in the Lions with graduated pay?

Re: 2021 Lions

I think Doris would be there if he'd been able to play over the last few months and wouldn't even be surprised if Jack finds it hard to get his Leinster place back after his extended break. That's not a slight on Jack, I'm delighted he's there and he deserves it but it's just funny how fluid our ba...

Re: Enforcer Second-Row Options

When your winning so often It must be a kick in the teeth to lose games but you need to keep in perspective where you are , there is not a single team in the pro 14 that wouldn't want to swop playing squads or coaching staff with you. Certainly no need to panic just yet folks, let's see how things ...

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

Darce was on Second Captains and spoke about how power was the big issue issue on Sunday and the knock on effects from it. Shaggy also mentioned how some of our forwards will have lost out on a Lions place because Gatland will have watched them get dominated. I'm pretty sure Ryan would have been th...

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

I think Ryan wasn't really at the races yesterday which is a real pity because their lineout is frankly weak, not just not a strength, but a bona fide weakness which we failed to exploit. They knew it which is why they kicked long and not for touch. Their average kick length was just over 29metres o...

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

Bizarre that Leinster fans are arguing about masks instead of what happened on the pitch. There's nothing to argue about what happened on the pitch! Bang on. To be fair there's nothing to be argued about the efficacy of masks on combating SARS virus spread either, but more people are likely to do s...

Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

Barnes was one-eyed all match. Officiating like that screws any competition. Although in fairness the Del Boy French is coming along nicely :D I admire Barnes for making use of the French he has, imperfect as it is, in public. Takes a lot of courage. People are too afraid of making mistakes in a ne...
