Re: H Cup Final Marseille 2022

“Leinster Rugby has received an allocation of 3,000 tickets from the EPCR for the Final”

Seems low

Re: H Cup Final Marseille 2022

Aer Lingus has said on Twitter (responding to an OLSC query) that there wont any extra flights added to the existing schedule. Very disappointing. Over to Michael O’Leary…

Not sure what to say, I thought that was a phenomenal performance. Everything was good. So happy. Bring on the final

Re: Leinster v Toulouse HC SF Sat 14th May 3:00pm

European Cup semi final between the two most successful sides in the competition’s history; this is massive. Fortunately it’s in our backyard and I really hope the fans bring color, noise and an intimidating atmosphere. The scrum is my big concern, I think we’ll struggle there but hopefully can gene...

Re: Leinster v Toulouse HC SF Sat 14th May 3:00pm

Still a lot of tickets in the South lower. Hopefully we can hit 40k. Fingers crossed they have tickets available around the ground on match day to generate some walk in business as the weather forecast is good so it might inspire a late surge

Re: Leinster v Toulouse HC SF Sat 14th May 3:00pm

The scrum this weekend could be ugly for Leinster. :shock: It’s a big concern. There’s a strong argument (and certainly one that Tigers fans are making) that we got some lucky calls against Leicester at the scrum (possibly due to a post Twickers pay back). We looked under pressure throughout the qu...

Re: Heineken Cup Dates 2022/23

The selections they've made have been a complete pain from a fan point of view, Bilbao and Marseilles are really difficult to get to. London, Milan, Rome, Paris or if you want to go non traditional, Brussels, Amsterdam, Madrid - all a lot easier. You want to fly to Marseilles now and you're paying ...

Well done Wixfjord, keep thinking big… I think Leinster will have had a big day over packages and pricing. I would like to think that some scenario planning went into preparing for the semi final and it’s not particularly difficult to organise some coaches, even Munster managed that much and that’s...

They’re down quite a few players in the 3/4s. I expect we’ll look to go wide early and move their enormous pack around so there might be weaknesses in the 3/4s to go after

Re: Heineken Cup 2021/22

LR look tough up front and we’ll drilled, I’d fancy our backs against them if we generate quick ball. Just need to beat Toulouse first!

Re: Leinster v Toulouse HC SF Sat 14th May 3:00pm

I can’t see many changes. Larmour and Baird might come into the 23 but that’s it. Whilst I agree that the back row was off form on Saturday, Doris with a lot of errors and Conan still looking lethargic post COVID, they are quality players who deserve another outing and I think they will deliver. Sec...

Re: Leicester V Leinster EPCR q/f 2022

Great to make the semi final but the second half performance was terrible. No control, no structure, consistently poor decision making, scrum a mess, maul defence weak, big penalty count and lots of unforced errors. Lots to work on before next week. Critical that our replacement front row can scrumm...

Re: Leicester V Leinster EPCR q/f 2022

For those who travelled, any idea what level of support we might have today? Word seems to be at least 1k? I always remember the Bloodgate match, the Leinster support was a big factor that day. I was listening to the Leicester podcast earlier, they will scrimmage, maul and kick. I think we need to r...

Re: Leicester V Leinster EPCR q/f 2022

Great to see Leavy there with the squad, he deserves to be a part of the big occasion. In terms of coaching, I think the best coaches draw upon broad experience and sadly his has been limited. He’s a prime candidate to do a stint in France / UK to get exposure to different perspectives and methods. ...

Re: Leicester V Leinster EPCR q/f 2022

Reasonably quiet build up considering its URC vs Prem leaders in a H Cup quarterfinal. The scrum will be fascinating and I think we’ll be ok. I also think we’ll have the edge at the breakdown. For me, the key is cutting out errors/ turnovers and keeping to single / low double digit penalty count. In...
