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

Madigan looked fine from the outside but fell down the pecking order (sometimes falling hard, and usually with controversy) at Leinster, Bordeaux, Bristol and now Ulster. I wish him success, but I wouldn't want us to take a chance on him. What controversies https://www.balls.ie/rugby/ian-madigan-3-...

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

I remember the u20 world championships a couple of years ago and everyone was shitting themselves because the Springboks had Steven Kitshoff in their side who was already a Super Rugby regular. He got absolutely buckled by the then relatively unknown Irish tighthead, some lad called Furlong. Yeah. ...

Cheers. Didn't know/recall that.

I think Hawkshaw and Corkery are fit anyway.

Would we sign a joker? Cathal Marsh back from the US?

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

When we have figured out exactly what happened against LAR, and why, we can start to correct it. To jump to easy conclusions before then could be a waste of time and effort. Since we won the Heineken Cup we have been losing talent to other provinces and losing some (1 a year is all it takes) of our...

Re: 2021 Lions

If Henshaw is back to current form within 30 weeks I'd take that.

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

ROG was talking nonsense (as in there's no way I'm telling Leinster what we planned) when referring to targeting Conan and Henshaw. He knew exactly what our weakest position (neither Conan or Henshaw fit that criteria) was and so it panned out, It's been our problem position for quite some time now...

Re: Enforcer Second-Row Options

At least Connacht have talent at lock and up and coming talent. Murray looks promising and there's still Thornbury and Dillane.

I'd say Roux is getting a reasonable offer, but he might be willing to forego international selection. Or he might still be negotiating

Re: 2021 Lions

Squidge actually presents a convincing case here: https://youtu.be/K9RAX2z0WXQ I watched that, thought he made a load of sense about the No8s selected. True. I think the selection also shows how different Gatland is from Jones and Farrell. A lot of cases here where subs are travelling ahead of the ...

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

This game really highlights the strength, or lack of in the league. That was one of the strongest Leinster teams that Connacht have faced in a while, and it looked like men against boys. Given the commentary surrounding the announcement Munster’s similar team, and the digs at lack of development, i...

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

An interesting game purely because of its proximity to the LAR game. Only sentiment I had was chalk and cheese......the Maul was just silly stuff. To go 16-0 down as we literally seemed to forget how to play rugby for 15 minutes and then rock in 4 tries in a few minutes when we remembered how to pl...

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

This is a bit of a forward battering. Nice to see, but again you'd have to wonder how these types of league games serve Leinster when you look at last week. Even the most ardent Pro14/Rainbow Cup booster would have to admit it's a totally different level. It’s a week late. But nice to see an improv...

Genuinely disappointed we didn't.
Kinda glad we didn’t. Funny in some ways, but it wasn’t a classy thing they did.
Remember when Connacht let John Muldoon take a conversion against us
Yes. That’s why I said that it wasn’t classy.

I’d like to see another angle of Blade’s try, wonder did Bealham knock the ball on.
I thought he took the hand, but didnt watch extra replays.
