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

So many negative comments on the game, and none applauding Connacht for their performance. Connacht were extremely good last night, and to assume that it was going to be anything other than a close encounter would be very disrespectful to haw far Connacht have come. Thornbury was rightly given motm...

Has anybody went from a central contract back to a provincial one before?
Loads, Dev most recent example I can think of. I think Jack McGrath had one at one stage. Cormac, Xan, JohnG or Mildygorey will know.

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

When is Earls signing his two year central contract? Sure we may aswell go to the next world cup with the same team. Earls and Healy’s contracts will be the most interesting given their ages. I suspect that both will get one year deals. The Central contract negotiations this year should be viewed a...

Re: Ulster, Away, March 6th, 7.35pm

Herring is a loss for them too in fairness, anything less than a 5-0 and Ulster need to be having a serious look at themselves and the coaching ticket should be considering their positions. I’m sure you will still have a few idiots using an Ulster win here as a reason to get lads into the Ireland s...

Re: Sexton's last season? Outhalf going forward..

I think Leinster have planned for it well. It's clear they have their duo who will battle it out to replace him with Frawley a potential wild card and cover.

Re: Glasgow at Home, Sunday the 28th, 5.30pm

The value that Harry Byrne brings is immense. He makes every player in the backline look better and makes the team runs much more smoothly and effectively when he's in at No10. As somebody said above, Hawkshaw looks like a good rugby player, but at this stage of his career he is nowhere near Harry'...

Re: Box Sets... The Next One ???

Did anyone watch It's A Sin on Channel 4? Its available on Sky via Catch Up. I thought it was excellent. It's about a group of gay friends living in London at the outbreak of the AIDS epidemic. Not having been there, I can only guess but it feels quite authentic. It does a great job of the initial ...

Re: Sexton's last season? Outhalf going forward..

If I was advising Frawley, I'd tell him he should concentrate on No12. The Harry Byrne/Frawley midfield looks extremely potent to me – a real blueprint for how Leinster can move forward. Two players at the midfield knuckle who can pass, kick, run and make decisions with real skill. I also don't thi...

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

Hard to see the value of a 2 year contact for POM, with the line out now firing a lot better with POC onboard what else does he bring that others don’t? This is one of those, what 'we pay our taxes for' moments and I'm delighted for Munster, because I don't think they'd be in a position to retain h...
