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: 2021 Lions

Some really odd calls in that squad. I am delighted for Conan, he has had an Alan Quinlanesque career to date, and all fit may not even make the Leinster squad for the big games. These are the type of selections which I really like. I think 8 Irish players is about right for where that Irish team i...

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

Commiserations on yesterday’s defeat. Unfortunately I am all to aware of that empty feeling when you realise that the team you follow are not as great as you thought they were. Tbh I, like many of you, am very surprised at the nature of the defeat. I was full sure that Leinster would run away with t...

Now that would be a great signing for Munster.
It would add some real grit to the team.

Mad how stats can different to perception.
I would have put my house on it that DDA would have gained the most meters.
His break for the first try must have been about 40 meters on its own.

Re: Rainbow Cup Rd 1: Saturday, 24 April: Leinster v Munster – KO 7.35pm, RDS Arena

Great to get the monkey off of our backs. I am far from overjoyed with that victory. IMO Munster left a fair few points on the field tonight, and given how poor Leinster were, Munster could well have put 50 on them, but their lack of clinical edge let them down. For Leinster to be kept to 3 is a go...

Re: Munster Rugby - Semi Conscious, the Series Finale??? - 2020/21

ROG signs a new three year deal at LAR. Won't be back in Munster until 2024/5 season at the earliest. Delighted for ROG. The easy option would have been to stay in Ireland and try to work his way up the ranks, but each move he has made has been far from the easy option. On his current trajectory it...

Re: Rainbow Cup Rd 1: Saturday, 24 April: Leinster v Munster – KO 7.35pm, RDS Arena

Great to hear that Dorris is on the mend. I must say that I was getting worried by the lack of news regarding his concussion issues.

Hopefully the rest has given him the chance to get right, and it will not be a reoccurring problem.

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

Have Leinster announced many departures? The only one that I have noticed is Fardy. Most departures from the senior squad are often only announced just in advance of the awards dinner they usually have towards the end of the season. Thanks, I was wondering alright, because you’d imagine a few would...

He spent the best part of the season holding tackle bags in the Irish camp. It would have been far better if he was left in the Munster camp to play games. didnt seem to hurt some other irish players. Indeed. It seems to have been a problem unique to him. Look, it’s just an opinion. There are many ...

Right, with all the hysteria over Zebo now settled, and everyone has accepted that it is a great signing of a great player, it is worth giving some time to Munster’s other signing this week. Munster have appointed Ian Costello, as academy manager. The former UL bohs head coach, Munster U20, Munster ...

Re: Munster Rugby - Semi Conscious, the Series Finale??? - 2020/21

Zebo is a good player and Munster fans love him. Was fullback a big position of need for them? No it wasn't. They'll wind up with a bit of wastage in the back three, but to be honest they had that once they signed Gallagher. I wonder “what’s the story” with Shane Daly. He was a serious upwards traj...

Re: Munster Rugby - Semi Conscious, the Series Finale??? - 2020/21

This is definitely an opportunistic signing, not one that Munster seem to have sought, and one that Munster would have been foolish to turn down. Yes I know. In fact I've said the same thing multiple times above. My point is the money could've been better used elsewhere. While a good player clearly...
