Re: is the Rainbow Cup still going ahead?

'king hell. Could they not at least do semi finals with two from each hemisphere? To me it seems clear that someone high up has been pushing this from the start and has just been determined to make it happen regardless of all the available evidence that it was a ridiculous idea from the off. For any...

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

I know Munster want to win this comp but the tighthead selection is a shambles.Fast forward to the european knockouts next year and they’ll come up short again because of a lightweight front five and this golden opportunity to develop Knox and/or Salanoa will have been wasted. Can’t see the logic in...

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

I don't think the team is that strong. Kelleher on the bench, no Ed Byrne or Dooley, no Porter, Baird starting (don't think he's first choice myself), no Hugo, and Foley ahead of Osbourne who I assume is rated higher. It's not a weak side but I don't see it as any kind of signal of intent, it's just...

Re: RFU reviewing “Swing Low”

If they're going to rename teams and stop singing songs that might cause offence for historical reasons then is it perhaps time to stop using the name "England"?

This post should really be a letter in the IT.

Re: is the Rainbow Cup still going ahead?

So, at a time of the season when we finally have a full squad to select a team from, we'll have no match for three weeks after this Friday. Good point. I said a while ago that if they paused the season for a little while then we might get decent crowds in to some games but didn’t even think of that...

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

I remember the u20 world championships a couple of years ago and everyone was shitting themselves because the Springboks had Steven Kitshoff in their side who was already a Super Rugby regular. He got absolutely buckled by the then relatively unknown Irish tighthead, some lad called Furlong. I alwa...

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. They'll get over it eventually - it was like the...

Are we sure Ross is injured? Thought we just just took him off because the game was won and we have injuries.
He wasn’t taking some of the kicks while he was on so he definitely picked up something
He was still on though, he might be nursing something but I’d say he’s alright.

What's the craic with Sexton?
Told to take a 6 week break according to the ST. Not sure what date that’s from exactly but means he’s out this week anyway.

Re: 2021 Lions

I see that SA are struggling to get some opposition for warm up games and might have to resort to probables v possibles etc. Again I wonder if Leinster (and others) could volunteer to play them, especially now that it’s confirmed that the Ireland tour is off. We are still playing two games but it’s ...

Garry to 9 and Luke to 13 next season?

Very unlike Dave to mess that up but that’s a brilliant tackle!

Edit: especially when his team are getting pumped and he just ran back so far!

This is one of the quietest games I've ever seen Garry Ringrose have
Showed great hands in the lead up to Keenan’s second and was really aggressive in defence in the first half at times. I expected more but I think he’s been good.

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

What a kick that was, Carteresque!

We were on course to lose by about 90 points at the rate Connacht were scoring but since then we’ve scored at a rate that might make over 100, what a bizarre game.
