Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

I suppose the hope is someday stuff like this won't be. It shouldn’t have to be, but it is. There's a big dollop of virtue signaling mixed in to be fair (the comments, not N McC). The use of the phrase "virtue signalling" is always the biggest signal for me Sent from my LE2123 using Tapat...

Re: United Rugby Championship

Yep attendance was capped at 30,000. That's almost as many as the highest previous SF weekend (both games in 2017). The Saffers have put the URC into overdrive. Even the buzz and atmosphere was great. I think they've brought a lot to the comp even in this messed up season. Must admit I'd consider a...

This is an under-appreciated point. Many of the games are a social and a chance to catch up with friends and the crowd only gets into it if the other team has the temerity to score against us - how very dare they.

Re: Munster Rugby - The Quest Continues - 2022-???

Just been informed by a source who is usually right, that Munster have been given the green light to sign and NIQ TH. Supposedly they have been in talks with a French based prop. Thinking logically it would likely be someone who comes recommended by Prendergast, I just can’t think who it might be. ...

Re: Supporters First - Replacing The Scourge of Stadium Announcers

The atmosphere thing is tricky. I do think Irish fans tend to be very conservative and don’t tend to get too into that stuff, unlike the French. But as the French have proven, it doesn’t need to be complicated or flashy or even original. It just needs buy in. I’ve always liked the idea of an Irish ...

Re: United Rugby Championship

How are people not getting this? [emoji38] This is a team selected based on consistent form in the URC games this season . Whether 'Leinster would beat that team' is irrelevant. Because it's not the best 15 players playing in the league, it's the players who have put in the best performances across...

Re: Leinster v Bulls Friday RDS 19:35 TG4

Anyone know where final will be held if Leinster win on Friday? Is the Aviva available that weekend? Aviva hopefully. Nobody wants to go to the RDS it’s a kip . Aviva will attract a bigger crowd Don't agree with that to be honest..... but each to his own! Much prefer the RDS to the Aviva. Not fond ...

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

Am I right in thinking that the seeding for next years HC comes from the QF, Sf and Final results of the URC and not the league places? In other words if Glasgow win the whole thing they'll be seeded first despite having come 8th in the URC table. No. SEEDING 2022/23 EPCR Heineken Champions Cup dra...

Re: Sevens

What's the conversion rate like? It seems like great players do well in 7s then 15s - cream rises to the top either way. 7s doesn't seem to unearth any players who weren't already promising. I'm always in the minority but I see 7s as competition for "proper rugby". Its a completely separa...

I think you change a lot. We have the depth in a lot of places, use it. Let the tired bodies rest and the rested bodies get a chance. I'd say they'll have to assess... Some guys might need to get straight back on the horse but I suspect there'll be a lot of emotionally drained players. I'd take a s...

One last thing for those who are travelling to Marseille. You've probably heard about the (bad) reputation of the city. Just be careful and clever, and you'll be fine.
