Re: New CEO - Shane Nolan

Well said wixfjord. I for one am delighted to see that this appointment is one that technically is coming from outside Dublin and more representative of the 12 counties approach. Being part of Navan RFC he would have a great appreciation for the diversity that the game has with under age, womens ru...

Re: RWC 2023: Ireland

At this stage (and assuming we get to the QF), I'd much prefer NZ to France.
40-50k Irish supporters in stade de France, bring it on.

Re: Pre-Season 2022/23

Came up through the club system, played with Navan at underage. He's 6'6'' and 18st according to the "interweb" so decent size. We seem to have passed on him as an academy recruit and he went to Connacht but moved on pretty quickly. It will be interesting. Was north kildare at underage. P...

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

Player of the series - Josh Van der Flier? I think so. Could definitely make an argument for Sexton but Josh is one of the best - and most consistent - loose forwards I've seen in over 50 years watching rugby JDF player of the series? If they were calling world player of the year now he would have ...

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

The big question then. Who's going to win tomorrow. NZ won handy enough in the first test but Ireland did give up a few soft tries. As a result NZ thought that they only had to turn up to win the second test. NZ in fact decided that they could beat Ireland with only 14 (most of the time) players on...

That 4-8 didn't work well at all in the first Maori game. The second row in particular just looks too similar. No idea why Baird doesn't get a st...

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

Our biggest problem is having a game on Tuesday, NZ can just concentrate on the 3rd test.
If there's a better player in world rugby (based on 2022 form) than VDF??
Can't think of any

NZ likely to drop below France but whither us.
Yep, France 2nd, Ireland 3rd, NZ 4th

If we hadn't conceded that late try, we'd be 2nd
And if Wales beat SA, we'd have gone to #1

ROC has a marginally better understanding of the game than Gavin Cummiskey had.

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

Nonsense isn't a strong enough word. There's a serious level of groupthink that's disconnected to reality. Even the idea of a selection debate is seriously strange. A year ago there were concerns when some people thought he was fading. Those have been put to bed and the gap is now larger than when ...

Re: Ulster 2021/22

Every decision that went against the stormers resulted in a number of their players questioning the decision. This, and the constant soccer style appealing to the ref sickens me. Adamson warned them about this a few times but did nothing. Hate seeing this cr@p creeping into rugby. Sent from my VOG-L...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

Interestingly, I’m hearing that they are also in talks with an IQ player based on the UK. I’d say the Toulouse game was a big eye opener on the requirement to strengthen that position. Your man who played for Ireland at U20, capped by England 5 years ago? Bracken or Brookes? They could try getting ...
