Re: A whiff of Cordite

With Munster's loss and Leinster not winning with a bonus point, Eirsports talking that everything is still in Munster's hands. Looking at fixtures I wouldn't be too surprised if Benetton win out. Maybe less than 50-50 but still a strong chance. Not a single mention of that possibility though. They...

Are we going to forget how well he played against Exeter then? The Larmour criticism on here is baffling to me.
No , we’re not , but one good game followed by 3 poor games, is a bad return

That’s right, and he’s not kicking pens from hand either
So we’ve about a 50% of an out half then ?? And actually Henshaw has been at first receiver a lot too , so maybe 40% ?

Whatever about wanting a change to the law, the eir pundits seemingly thinking that the ref should severely punish Henshaw when he hasn't actually done anything wrong is ridiculous.
You’re not a regular viewer of Eir sport then ??

Dreadful scrum - and McGrath is really no good with retreating forwards. Ulster will win this if we don’t wake the f*** up

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

A 32 year old who left us after some success but some clear flaws in his game, struggled to cement a starting place in two mid table Top 14 French & Premiership sides and has had a very up and down season resulting in him now being third in line behind Burns & Lowry at 10. If you examine that profi...

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

Match Preview Well that was grimly familiar. Once again this Leinster team failed to deliver when they came up against a bigger pack which bullied them off the park. They started brightly enough and wasted a couple of decent chances in the first half that could have had them further ahead. But whil...

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

Just poor game plan all round im afraid .. poorly resourced breakdown ( particularly in 2nd half) - our attack far too predictable and easy to defend when their players are physically bigger than us , when we ran straight at them . McGrath kicking was poor overall - but really cant complain too much...

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

I sometimes wonder about Larmour's jinking runs. They make it very hard to resource the ruck, when he goes to ground, cos his teammates haven't the faintest indictation, where he's gonna end up. That said he did brilliant with his tackle on Vito to help prevent what was looking like a certain try. ...

Gutting that Larmour didn’t find McGrath with that pass. Looked a try if it was hit him. La Rochelle making yards too easily. Need to cut out the sloppy passing and cheap penalties in the second half.
Well , Larmour doesnt have great passing experience to be fair :D :D
