Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

Well there’s certainly no confusion now as to Leinster’s intentions in the Rainbow Cup. Like Munster, Leinster have again selected a very strong squad showing that they are not treating this as a development tournament as hoped for by many supporters. This is shaping up to be a cracking game, but I...

Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

Still think the signing of Gopperth was MOC's biggest mistake. As a club we turned our back on Mads, a home grown lad with huge potential, but with workons, in favour of a middle of the road kiwi 10 who while good enough to win the Pro 12 was never going to win Europe. Sweet jesus. How do people st...

Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

A 32 year old who left us after some success but some clear flaws in his game, struggled to cement a starting place in two mid table Top 14 French & Premiership sides and has had a very up and down season resulting in him now being third in line behind Burns & Lowry at 10. If you examine that profi...

Re: European Cup Semi-Final: Away to La Rochelle, Sunday 2nd of May 3pm

They're top 6 comfortably and have a Champions Cup final to play. Great result for Brive, would love to see them back up at the business end, that was one of the great away trips! Right now, anywhere would be a great away trip. A rainy November evening in Rodney Parade would do me. Newport? Steady....

Re: European Cup Semi-Final: Away to La Rochelle, Sunday 2nd of May 3pm

LAR blew their chance of catching (or passing) Toulouse at the top of the Top14 tables last night in going down to Brieve away from home. Fielding a very much second-string Squad they failed to score a try and were beaten by 24-12. Another feather in the coaching caps of Jeremy Davidson & James Cou...

Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

Would we sign a joker? Cathal Marsh back from the US? Interesting thought for next year. I know he's up at Ulster but Madigan covers 10,12 and 15..... Is he out of favour up there - last game was 15 minutes off bench against Quins on April 4th. Haven't seen any mention of an injury! So it would see...

Re: European Cup Semi-Final: Away to La Rochelle, Sunday 2nd of May 3pm

When we have figured out exactly what happened against LAR, and why, we can start to correct it. To jump to easy conclusions before then could be a waste of time and effort. Since we won the Heineken Cup we have been losing talent to other provinces and losing some (1 a year is all it takes) of our...

Re: Connacht v Leinster Rainbow Cup Sat 8/5 19.35

Funny in some ways, but it wasn’t a classy thing they did. Maybe things have changed over the years, but it was always traditional to let a retiring foward have a kick in his last game, especially if he wa a real clubman. That's right, I remember Kieran Dawson taking a kick for Ulster and I think B...

I think Doris would be there if he'd been able to play over the last few months and wouldn't even be surprised if Jack finds it hard to get his Leinster place back after his extended break. That's not a slight on Jack, I'm delighted he's there and he deserves it but it's just funny how fluid our ba...

Delighted for Jack Conan and Bundee Aki

Gutted for the other lads - presume some of them will be holidaying in Lesotho entirely coincidentally
Didn't even consider either of them. Delighted for them both, finally Jack catches a break.

An odd seasons body of work for players. Henshaw and furlong only nailed on in my view. Beirne, Stander, Hendo, Ryan, Ringrose, Josh, keenan, Murray, Porter in contention. J10 if his head hasn't fallen off. A year or two ago you'd have said Ryan was cast iron and Larmour on the right trajectory and ...

Re: Enforcer Second-Row Options

Thats fine. Just dont expect us to win Europe next year is all. Our current second rows aren't good enough at the business end of Europe, maybe JR excluded. That's fine if we just want to get to quarters or semi finals but it wont get us a fifth star as every other side is spending money on the top...
