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

The most notable strength for me is the Ulster team. That's a pretty tasty backline for a start. Few players there looking for international recognition.

Leinster as usual at this time of year puttong out players needing game time and still badly stuck at half back.

Shoulder and hamstring for Frawley? Dunno what to say about that except that he's having absolutely no luck recently
He's having lots of luck.


All bad.

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

Not that relevant to the match but I’m so sick of hearing “KBA“ after a player makes an offload etc. You’d swear that ROG invented the offload when he did that interview after the Gloucester game and now commentators credit him whenever they see one. Managing media narratives is his greatest skill....

Good video that. Makes me even more nervous about Henshaw making it back in one piece though.
Precisely my thoughts too!

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: 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...
