Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

Our maul last week was devastating but it's hard to say how much of that was down to them or us. So if nothing else our mail should get a good test against a team which relies a lot on their maul themselves.

Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

Well there’s certainly no confusion now as to Leinster’s intentions in the Rainbow Cup. Like Munster, Leinster have again selected a very strong squad showing that they are not treating this as a development tournament as hoped for by many supporters. This is shaping up to be a cracking game, but I...

Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

Madigan looked fine from the outside but fell down the pecking order (sometimes falling hard, and usually with controversy) at Leinster, Bordeaux, Bristol and now Ulster. I wish him success, but I wouldn't want us to take a chance on him. What controversies https://www.balls.ie/rugby/ian-madigan-3-...

Re: Enforcer Second-Row Options

I'd say even if we could have gone for him I'd say Toulon have offered him serious money which we would have had to match and if we had that much cash on hip could we not get more bang for our buck elsewhere? Also, Conn still have not got over Robbie H coming here, If QR had of shown up here I think...

Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

What's the craic with Sexton? Cullen said he was fairly close so who knows. Personally I'd like to see him stood down until September (and Ryan and Doris if it comes to that). I know that's probably not practical from an IRFU point of view at least, but I think Leinster could manage the rest of Rai...

Are we sure Ross is injured? Thought we just just took him off because the game was won and we have injuries.
No I'm not sure at all. I was assuming the opposite (i.e. they won't take off our only OH unless he was injuried), but you could be right.

Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

It's the big one. At least, its the biggest one this week. Ulster have now lost three in a row, which isn't a feeling they're used to. Despite Connacht's dramatic win against them, I think they'll present a sterner test in the forwards especially with some guys coming back in pissed off after losin...

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

Thanks, Dave (and apologies to all for putting this in the wrong thread I thought I was putting it it the Conn match thread). So at the moment (assuming the SA's are out of the equation) does this mean that whoever tops the group wins or is there a top 2 Final? Yep, the latter, 6 rounds of games, o...

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

Sorry guys can someone just clarify for me ......the winner of this group (Northern Hemisphere), plays the winner of the South African group, in a final somewhere, is that how this thing culminates? Have I got that right?

Re: Connacht v Leinster Rainbow Cup Sat 8/5 19.35

Match Preview Well that was grimly familiar. Once again this Leinster team failed to deliver when they came up against a bigger pack which bullied them off the park. They started brightly enough and wasted a couple of decent chances in the first half that could have had them further ahead. But whil...

Re: Connacht v Leinster Rainbow Cup Sat 8/5 19.35

Lovely balance to that side, good bench impact too. Lots of lads who will be hungry having not played last week too. Looking at that Connacht side we should be good for a win here I think. Not looking to make early excuses but it's hard to know where their heads will be at. But you're right, on ano...

Re: Connacht v Leinster Rainbow Cup Sat 8/5 19.35

James Treacy doing the press so he's probably starting in which case anyone who was in quarantine could be playing I would have thought. Could be a strong team so.
