Re: 2021 Lions

I think Gatland would like to bring Manu. I think he will give him every chance now that North is out ... those two guys are freakish specimens, and I think Gats would want one of them in the midfield. I reckon it will be Henshaw, Slade, Ringrose and Manu. Owen Farrell will be selected, depends how...

Re: Munster Rugby - Semi Conscious, the Series Finale??? - 2020/21

Zebo is a good player and Munster fans love him. Was fullback a big position of need for them? No it wasn't. They'll wind up with a bit of wastage in the back three, but to be honest they had that once they signed Gallagher. I wonder “what’s the story” with Shane Daly. He was a serious upwards traj...

There are still bans.

But I’m nervous doing this before a Lions tour. That’s the one time you might actually see what was being talked about.
Not for Farrell mind.

Re: Trends

This might be a good place to discuss the new laws being trialed. Have to say, the idea that a team would set out to injure someone from the first minute and be happy to be without someone for 20 minutes seems off the wall to me :lol: I'd honestly say that the only way that's likely to happen is at...

Re: Rainbow Cup Rd 1: Saturday, 24 April: Leinster v Munster – KO 7.35pm, RDS Arena

not sure about the red card rule. send out low grade player to take out key opposition player. he gets sidelined for 20 while key player is out of match. replace sidelined player with your real player you intended for the match and you have 60 minutes to come good. Cynical I know, but Hay Richard C...

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

Just annonced Tom Clarkson signs his first pro contract. I feel something brewing........ :cry: Clarkson had interest from LI so his agent got his contract bumped. WIth Alaatoa on the way and presumably on a decent wedge it doesn't seem like moving Salanoa was cost effective for the IRFU. Who could...

Interesting that are no English, Welsh or Scots players in there. Wonder if that's ever happened before?
Hadn't noticed that - bit odd
It's not. Usually reserved for teams who make it to the last 8 but with the season being truncated they've plumbed for last 4.

Re: Rainbow Cup Rd 1: Munster @TheRDS

Is there a format for this thing or are they just making it up as they go along. I can see they have fixtures for the first 5/6 rounds then the fixtures are empty.

Re: Corona Virus

It's not the HSE - it's not even someone with a medical background. It's the CEO, Michael Cullen - son of Des "Penny-Apples" Cullen - with zero medical background who had been using vaccines to sort out a number of groups ahead of the vaccine rollout (creche workers, school, VHI CEO etc) - despite ...

Fair enough paddy, so they’re following the underrated “loosey goosey” governance model... They're frontline heroes and all but ultimately it's still the HSE. Now tbf at least we didn't go down the New York road of massive fines and jail time for deviating from the "list". And the ISraelis have dem...

I find the outrage at the CEO of the Beacon giving spare vaccines to school teachers fascinating - where was all this outrage when the Master of the Coombe gave their excess vaccines to staff’s family members - including his own two sons! Excess is a hilarious term there. The hse (as competent as t...
