Re: Sean Cronin

Thought Faz cut him harshly just because he wouldn’t be around for the RWC. Ah he's nowhere near the player he was, not even making our 23 for big game like! It’s 2 years after the RWC. He was briefly Ireland’s first choice hooker when Best retired but then dropped right out of the next squad. And ...

Re: Connacht 2019/20/21

The 10 minute period immediately following half-time demonstrated perfectly why there remains a gulf, not a gap, between Casey and Marmion as scrum-halves. Coaching and experience will close the distance but it won't happen in weeks, perhaps not even months and maybe not for years. Casey is confide...

Ryan, Baird and Cronin in a front five doesn't strike me with huge confidence from a scrummaging POV personally.

Was it him just shouting whoooo everytime anyone made a tackle? Bit annoying.

Anyone hear Lowe on the sideline by the way? Think Ferris mentioned it in commentary at the end. Non f%~king stop!

Would agree on Larmour btw, his accuracy at times is poor. Very sloppy.

I really wish someone would just shake him at times.

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

Great to see Caelen Doris, JOB & TOB back onto the pitch. Thought Doris started slowly but grew into it. JOB's left boot is a serious weapon. His penalty to the corner before HT was incredible. TOB really looks 'to the manor born' though. Can't waitt to see him at a higher level. He has a mix of elu...

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

Still think the signing of Gopperth was MOC's biggest mistake. As a club we turned our back on Mads, a home grown lad with huge potential, but with workons, in favour of a middle of the road kiwi 10 who while good enough to win the Pro 12 was never going to win Europe. Sweet jesus. How do people st...

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.

Re: is the Rainbow Cup still going ahead?

The final is on Saturday June 19th between either the top 2 in the NH competition / top sides in each of the NH and SH competitions. If latter, Italy being suggested as a venue. The format is flexible! Are you serious?! What a shitshow :lol: You'd think at this stage they'd finally call the format ...

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

I watched the Bulls vs Stormers game there at the weekend, and my biggest takeaway was that the Michael Alaalatoa signing was incredibly wise. The Stormers front row was Frans Malherbe, Bongi Mbonambi & Steven Kitshoff. They each range from 17.5 to 20 stone. All 30 year old veterans, capped by Sout...

Wouldn't mind seeing something like this on Friday:
Byrne, Kelleher, Furlong, Dev, Ryan, Murphy, VDF, Penny, McGrath, Byrne, Lowe, Henshaw, Ringer, Larmour, Keenan
Sheahan, Dooley, Porter, Baird, Doris, Osborne, Hawkshaw, TOB

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

I would leave Frawley off now until next season. Let him rest up.

You could see how frustrated he has been on a few occasions recently coming off.

Overall he has had a fantastic season though.

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 As we saw last night though, Roux i...

Pap can’t reach back for the ball in the ruck like that, so obvious.
Was wondering wtf Murphy was looking at there!
