Re: RWC 2023: Ireland

Yeah, the two week break between SA and Scotland is the kicker.

If we could manage to beat SA (big if, obviously), then we might not even need much from the Scots and could potentially mix and match (i.e., rest J10).

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

Barnes riding us raw at the ruck really isn't helping.

Re: Pre-Season 2022/23

I was hoping the season would start a bit sooner than last year. Not a huge fan of the league continuing into the middle of June. This calendar is here to stay unfortunately, although this next season may start a week earlier than the season just gone. Presumably next year will start a couple weeks...

Was hoping there'd be a game weekend I'm home in August (20th) to take the kids to, doesn't look likely.

Re: Leinster v Glasgow URC Q/F Sat 4th June 15:15

So we can be ranked 1st 2nd or 3rd for next years Heino. That means home and away to two bottom ranked french and english teams (if we get to the final), or same against the third ranked versions (if we fail to make final). If we make the final that's either the Not Nots or Exeter from the Prem, an...

Re: Leinster v Glasgow URC Q/F Sat 4th June 15:15

I'd like to think by mixing it up a fair bit this weekend we can overcome the depression by virtue of new bodies looking to prove themselves, but a Saffer side on a bit of a roll in the semi would be a real challenge.

Re: Leinster v Glasgow URC Q/F Sat 4th June 15:15

Bad feeling that this season has the bang of 2017 off it. Heads down after a heartbreaking close loss in Europe then and ambushed by Scarlets in the league.

Re: Leinster v La Rochelle Heineken Cup Final Sat 28th May 4.45 Marseille

I'd be pretty sure that even possession was slightly in our favour but was massively skewed by their dominance of it in the last ten minutes. Being at the game, it 100% felt different to the other defeats, I genuinely don't believe we 'lost the physical battle'. To me, it was all mental. We lost it ...

Re: H Cup Final Marseille 2022

I got in the Ibis Budget at the Airport last week for about seventy euros. Handy enough direct bus into/out of town for a ten spot as well, only takes twenty minute or so.

They've a big Top 14 home game against Stade on Saturday at 5:15pm, whilst our players will have their feet up. They can't really afford to rest anyone.

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

I like the English ref's. I think this current batch are the best around at the moment and this team let the game flow and got the big decisions right. The only real issue I had with him was the penalty against Robbie for encroaching on the lineout that apparently wasn't over (even though the ruck ...
