Re: United Rugby Championship

Nobody is entitled to coverage. TV channels are selling a product and will cover the games that they feel will give them the highest viewership so they can sell more ads at higher rates. It's hard to argue that they've gotten it wrong based on the figures above. Realistically, there are a large numb...

Re: Robbie Henshaw - Best IQ signing?

Cronin was great, but I don’t think he would be our best ever irish qualified signing. He was often the bench impact rather than a nailed on first choice pick. His try scoring record is obviously good, but that played into his greatest strength; exceptional pace for a front row forward. Hookers also...

True, though I’d dispute the classification of Frawley as an outhalf there for the moment at least.

Yeah, I’m still feeling the effects of that Marseille trip [emoji28] At least it’ll be a bit cheaper getting to this years final

Probably waiting to see the semi finalists so they can change the rules to benefit English and French clubs.

Leinster Squad 21-22

Sounds like Ciaran Frawley will start at 10 for Ireland tomorrow. Jimmy O’Brien starting at full back with Joe McCarthy at loosehead lock.

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

The comments around Nick are definitely not virtue signalling. It may be reasonably normalised to have your sexuality widely known in every day life, it’s anything but in the world of male professional sport. You really don’t have to look too far back to see examples in other sports of how people we...

Ed Byrne, Devin Toner and Adam Byrne selected for the Barbarians to play Spain it would seem.

Leinster exiles, where are they.

He grew up in Leinster and played for Leinster schools. Leinster is the most logical province for him to join. Tadhg Beirne grew up in Leinster and went to Leinster schools… if he comes, he’ll go where he’s needed, and that’s not Leinster right now. We already signed the guy who was keeping him out...

Leinster exiles, where are they.

Pretty certain he is eligible for Ireland. He discussed potentially playing for Ireland in an interview with RTE and refers to Ireland as “home”. Also, his contract appears to be up this summer and he doesn’t look like he’s getting his anew Zealand chance right now, so could be Munster bound after a...

Leinster exiles, where are they.

There's another political aspect about Jager. The system in Ireland says you do a year or two of sub-academy and then 3 years of low paid academy. Guys who go to market and leave after their leaving put huge pressure on the viability of that system. Preferential treatment of Jager would be decisive...

Re: Leinster exiles, where are they.

It’s not like he has been a huge success in Australia — 23 next week and has a total of 91 minutes of rugby so far. Worth keeping an eye on him but I doubt anyone is making a move for him just yet.

Clermont are 1pt ahead of Toulon in the table. Doh! Not sure what the Ultimate Rugby app was showing me but I see now that Toulon miss out. :? The Ultimate Rugby app is absolute dog shît — the reason it has the tables wrong is because it counts the playoff games as league games and awards points fo...

Re: Leinster v La Rochelle Heineken Cup Final Sat 28th May 4.45 Marseille

In fairness, there are very few success stories of players leaving Leinster and having a great career. We have gotten it right almost always, Beirne is probably the only player I would have taken back given the chance. It’s a good record.

Taking of Porridge, I was down by the port in Marseille before the game and Devin Toner was there taking pictures with the fans. A lad walked up to him to get a photo and Toner duly obliged but right after he turned to him and said, “f%~k off!” I was wondering what happened there until I realised it...

Re: Leinster v La Rochelle Heineken Cup Final Sat 28th May 4.45 Marseille

We’ve won 2 in the last 10 years. And made two other finals. Top two in 40% of the finals. No other club has made more finals than us in the last decade. And that was in a period of utter dominance by Toulon and then Saracens.

But you already knew that.
