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).

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

Well that was another disastrous season for Munster. Did I read that they were a Glasgow win away from not being in the Heineken Cup next year? We'll see what next season brings for Munster. My guess is a combination of angry demands for big name signings, false expectations dashed and smoke being ...

Re: Munster Rugby 2021/2022 - Search for the Holy Grail

t The Holy Grail is keeping his head down at present. That was a terrible display. Worrying display for both Munster and Ireland. Too many spent forces barely dialing it in. The "Ireland needs a strong Munster" cliche? Ireland’s unprecedented success over the last decade and a half have p...

Re: Munster Rugby 2021/2022 - Search for the Holy Grail

I thought the Munster midfield was poor too, a good break by Farrell for the try but I can't remember much else and they were destroyed defensively. I think going toe to toe with Toulouse has skewed some people's perceptions of the performance, the reality is that turnovers and poor discipline were...

Re: Dan Leavy retires

I doubt it - he was named in the squad but didn’t play and EPCR have this ridiculous thing that you only get a star if you’re in the squad for the final. In 2018 Ross Byrne and Josh van der Flier both played 6 games and Ferg played all 8 up to the final and yet NONE of them have a star on the EPCR ...

Big right up in the42 today about Ben Healy(the Farmers son) So just like the Kearneys then eh? :roll: Anyway he missed one long range pen and then a drop and then 2 pens in the shootout...burn dude....not his day. Kicking is something he'll have to improve though, sub 80% atm in the URC. and he we...

Re: Leinster v Connacht Aviva Friday 15th 5.30

Truth be told, Connacht were unfortunate to lose this all-Irish duel last weekend, going down 26-21 and leaving them with a tough trip to Leinster this weekend. The difference between these two sides could be a strong outing from newcomer Hansen on the wing after a frustrating outing in the first le...

Re: Leinster v Connacht Aviva Friday 15th 5.30

Yeah wasn’t aware of the specific timelines but looks like they have until Wednesday at 3.30pm to cite JGP or anyone else from the game. I also noticed that Connacht can refer incidents to the citing commissioner up until 26 hours before kickoff. I assume they would have done it by now if they plan...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

I see Thornley is suggesting all sorts of reasons for the pathetic attendance at, ahem, Fortress Thomond last week. They include live terrestrial television coverage, covid, confirmations and communions (yep really), the fact that only 2 Limerick men were in the 23 and the kick off time. The expect...

Re: Munster v Leinster URC Sat 2nd 7pm RTE

I'd be a bit concerned about the scrum if Sheehan starts. I think he was probably a big part of the scrum weakness in Twickenham. And I don't have much faith in McBryde . Do you mind expanding on both those points (a) Sheehan at fault in Twickenham and (b) lack of faith in McBryde? Not having a go:...

Loughman called up to Ireland squad. We really have stepped up and provided the weaker provinces with decent front row options.

Re: Rumour Mill

Not a podcast I've listened to but apparently this week on the Provincial State of Mind podcast they discussed that Leinster had been trying to lure Carbery back but it fell through Carbery should never have left but it’s difficult to see him returning now. It just doesn’t make any sense. This stor...
