Re: United Rugby Championship

Conceding 69 to an Italian team is nothing short of a disgrace. The attitude of Welsh teams in our league is mystifying. It must be dreadful being a supporter of such consistently apathetic sides The fans and the media tend to be on the apathetic sides themselves, just waiting for the English to sw...

Re: United Rugby Championship

Ospreys get a TBP and a LBP in the last minute to really put it up to Scarlets tomorrow. Scarlets really need to beat Stormers or they're out of the Heino.

Re: United Rugby Championship

Benetton 69-21 Cardiff
Holy sh!t, and its 29 points for Rhyno Smith.
Probably a Team and player record for the reigning Rainbow Cup Champions.
Cardiff.....hang your heads.

Re: Ulster 2021/22

Great game for the neutral but Sharks were disappointing in attack. If they couldn'y break Uster after 1-2 phases they ran out of ideas. Ulster backline is young and dynamic. Sharks seem to lack structure plus Kolisi was very quiet tbf.

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

Mmmm, Healy benching at 18 doesn't augur well for Tadhg. I would say the opposite. Tadgh a doubt, Healy is nowhere near that 23. Don't know what that means. What I'm saying is the fact we're again trying Healy at TH isn't a good sign for Tadhg's fitness for next week. No way we'd be trying that oth...

Re: United Rugby Championship

The fact that the teams in the URC are weaker (bar the top 3 Irish) than those in Super Rugby, could be a good thing. The South Africans won 3 Super Rugby Titles in 24 attempts (all Bulls) and those were way back in the day. Being more competitive and lets face it, thrashing teams at home should br...

Re: United Rugby Championship

Kolisi just signed a 5 year deal extension with the Sharks. Makazole Mapimpi has re-signed until 2025. This comes on the back of the signings of Lukhanyo Am, Lionel Cronje, Grant Williams, Reniel Hugo, Emile van Heerden, Anthony Volmink and prop Dian Bleuler. Some big start moving back home too.

Re: Russian Invasion 2022

"The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia, and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq,” Bush Junior said, before correcting himself and shaking his head.

Well we haven't lost 3 league games in a row since 2008. And Munster haven't beaten us in the Aviva since 2014. Like to keep the status quo.

There is going to be uproar in South Africa when they find out that a Munster Branch Ref (2016 Munster ref of the year and former Munster player) is in charge of this game. It stinks to high heaven!
