Re: Leinster U24 backline evaluation.

I like the idea of Frawley at 15. To me, Larmour is is not much of a distributor, and would definitely like to see a second playmaker wider. He also strikes me as quite a big unit, so am surprised to see him listed at 'only' 90kg.

Re: The leinster dream thread (100th edition)

Ireland hasn't produced too many in general. Bar Murray. TOL was selected in 09 iirc but missed out through pre tour injury. Stringer never made it afaik. So no province produced one since John Robbie (40 years ago) with the exception of Conor Murray. Well it's a Leinster thread (as you've twigged!...

Re: The leinster dream thread (100th edition)

I'm sure he's absolutely devastated alright.

Think of all the other positions where we've had, in the last 10-15 years, actual world class talent (bar hooker, I'd guess). Our last lion at nine was John Robbie was it?

I guess we were robbed of Ciaran Scally

Re: Friday's rant

Many congratulations.

First one is absolutely climbing the walls. Thank-fock we have a garden as otherwise infanticide may have already taken place. Feel for those cooped up in apartments.

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

salarysins fielded a very young academy side. nothing to see here lads...they are simply using the premiership games to blood new players. I guarantee you that they have only one focus this season now. beat us in Dublin and go on to win the champions cup again. We will see a very different team in ...

Re: Leinster v Lyon, 12th Jan 13:00

I'd pick Larmour at 15 this weekend and Rob over in Treviso. The auld home and away, horses for courses selection.

Treviso will be targeting our game quite intently I would think.

Re: RWC2019 31-man squad

If Kleyn travels, it would be solely with an eye to not being over-powered against SA. We match up well against all the other teams, bar possibly England (who I don't think we would be due to meet until a final?)

Re: Kurt McQuilkin to leave Leinster Rugby

Legend. Took us for a training session one day in primary school, super guy.

An aside, that win over Leicester was my very first Leinster game. I was 13, Jeez. If I remember correctly, Walesi Serevi played 10 for the Tigers, and that's essentially what won us the game.

Re: Can Leinster be competitive in the coming seasons?

Not sure why people think that Munster can just 'fix' their academy; they simply don't have the numbers and will always have holes to plug.

It's a similar, albeit not as serious, problem in the North.

To be honest, I'm surprised that this didn't happen a couple of years ago. Ireland's first and second choice loosehead props in the same province was never ideal from an Ireland perspective.
