Re: Glasgow at Home, Sunday the 28th, 5.30pm

The assessments of Hawkshaw at 10 are wildly premature. The guy has played in six matches for less than two hours pitch time. Of that, 80 minutes or so were spent at outhalf across three or four games. To make any kind of judgement on whether he is or isn't going to be an outhalf for Leinster based ...

Re: 6 Nations 2021

I can’t link it at the moment but at the end of the law it says something about hitting the ground or another player for it to be a knock on but it’s not clear (to me at least) if those two elements are always taken into account or if it can be knocked on before those things come into play. Not bei...

probably unlikely but I wonder if Ruddock might be released?
Him and VDF can’t both the the 24th man so we should get one back.

Good point.

The question is will Leocaster consider them for selection having being away all week

Having Rhys would be a huge boost.

Better him playing this than being a 24th man in Rome.

You'd think so, and I'd agree - but I don't think AF will.

Re: Tighthead Prop going forward

Might also be a bit of horse trading with the IRFU - if you move Porter to LH you can sign a new NIQ TH. But why, what would be the sense to it? We already have two of the best tighthead props in Europe certainly, if not the world. An NIQ signing wouldn't be playing in any of the games they're avai...

Re: Tighthead Prop going forward

I really can't see how you have come to the conclusion the Porter isn't all that good at loosehead? By watching him play at loosehead. Where he wasn't as good as Dooley or Byrne. And by his own admission wasn't enjoying his rugby. I don't think it's accurate to say that Byrne and Dooley haven't pro...

Re: Tighthead Prop going forward

Is this necessary? We have - excluding Bent - Porter, Furlong, Clarkson, Abdaladze, plus McGrath Is switching Porter to loosehead either necessary or a good idea? We have - excluding Healy - Byrne, Dooley, Milne and Hannon, and one of the reasons he switched to tighthead was because he wasn't actual...

Re: Are Leinster an offloading team? Does the Leinster attack lack imagination?

As of the end of last season, teams that offload the least and kick the most, win the trophies. These things are cyclical though. At one point all the winning teams were the offloading teams. By 2013 through 15 though, the game became a kicking game when Australia, Waratahs, Ireland, Saracens, Leins...

I'd leave Max in situ, he was good on Friday, improving every game.
The quality of the opposition was decreasing every game too in fairness, it will start going the other way from this week
Even more reason to retain him so.

I'd start TOB in the centre, either spot.
