Re: United Rugby Championship

Springbok hooker Joseph Dweba will return to South Africa next season, having signed a three-year deal with the Stormers. The front row powerhouse has spent the last two years playing in France for Top 14 side Bordeaux-Begles. He's some player, the South Africans will be even stronger next year. I ...

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

One of funniest things about visiting MunsterFans after a bad defeat (and saturday was as bad as it gets) is seeing all the Leinster fans come down to post advice to them on how to get better. :lol:
That must really boil their P!ss!

Roundtree has one advantage taking over from VG.
He doesn't have too much to live up to.
But thats the problem. He has '78, '06 and '08 to live up to.
VG is going to a place were midtable makes him a god.

Wow Gerry Thornley on total Comical Ali mode. Apparently Munster's ain was to entertain on Saturday rather than win. The way he goes on you swear it was Munster with the second strings out and having little on the line. Sure weren't they great for having a go. I wonder does GT get a call on Sunday ...

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

I’d actually be interested in reading some rugby journalism about Dunne. Like, some analysis of his rugby career, his Leinster experience and why he’s going. It's such lazy journalism to write the 100th article about his sexuality. Like, he’s been out publicly for years. Fair play to him, of course...

According to the rules, Glasgow would be at home if they beat us.

Re: A whiff of Cordite

GT in the IT saying a win up in ravers will send Munster into the hands of the Bulls/Sharks.
URC rules say they will play Stormers /Edinburgh.

Re: United Rugby Championship

Stormers v Edinburgh could be a tricky enough game for the Stormers to negotiate. Edinburgh were very competitive down south earlier in the season. Agreed. Edinburgh look like a half decent team. The South Africans think that Edinburgh's victory down there (the only home defeat IIRC) was because it...

Re: Leinster v Munster, URC Final Round, Sat. 21st May, 7:15pm, Aviva

Looking back on the game what most stands out is Leinster's basic ferociousness in every phase of play. Rory0' said after the game that the boys were "rarin to go" and it looked just like that.
Special mention for Chris Farrell, he was a real handfull last night.

Re: United Rugby Championship

Feckin great weekend of Rugby. Ulster/Sharks last night, Benetton giving Cardiff a very unenjoyable 69. Bulls looking really good too. Today, Connacht squeezed past Zebre, Stormers scored a try at the death to secure a home QF and probable SF. And then of course, the Leinster whippersnappers tore Mu...
