Re: Champions Cup 2020 / 21

Before the Nigels took over there were only 6 or 7 French and 6 or 7 English. The rest were done by country but it was a shitload of pro12. I'd have to look it up to say exactly but it was something like 3 or 4 Irish (I Think we had all 4 a couple of times) 3 or 4 Welsh. Both Scots Both Italians. I...

Re: Season Tickets 2021/22

Anyone like to hazard a guess as to how many home games we will have scheduled next season? Besides possible covid issues.

EPRC going back to their normal setup? Or not?

Pro16? Who knows?

We used to get 14 home games. Then we went to 13 one season and 14 the next. Where now?

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

Did Jamie Osbourne get promoted to the full academy during the season?

PS: thanks for your efforts on this thread. Great to refer back to throughout next season.

Osborne hasn't been officially confirmed.

Cian Kelleher unknown too.
I allocated the contract to both Kelleher brothers by mistake.

In the 10 previous seasons the HC has been won by Leinster 3 Toulon 3 Saracens 3 and Exeter 1. Sarries we know about. The other 2 we will meet in the next round and (should we be successful) the QF The 3 winners before that are Munster Toulouse and Wasps who are also funneling into the same QF. What...

Re: is the Rainbow Cup still going ahead?

We didn't play Munster at home or Connacht away this season so It's only round 3 that's superfluous. Apart from the fact that it's AFTER the final.... But sure we are only having to travel as far as our sitting rooms so what harm. It's rugby to watch. And rounds 4 5 and 6 willbe v the saffers no dou...

Crucial game for the Ospreys as Glasgow have a game v dragons on Sunday and a re fixed one v treviso the following weekend. Ospreys need to win this to keep their 3rd place

I'll check that out.

On a totally different note. Also late to the party. Sneaky Pete on amazon prime (or your local torrent site) is very entertaining. In season 2 atm.

Well from an ulster perspective he takes Coetzee's NIQ spot and from an IRFU perspective he takes Fardy's "back row" spot. Hé offloads more than McCloskey and he’s offloaded a few problems there already. He’ll be fun. I think he’ll be the third Fijian to play for Ulster, at least that I know of. Ca...
