Connacht 22 Zebre 20 - Someone desperately needs to teach Alex Wootton how to defend because he cost Connacht two trys today.

Unfortunately Frawley's biggest problem is running into things face-first and damaging said face in the action. He needs to reduce this occurrence to have an Ireland career.
Worked OK for BOD
Paddy Wallace made a career out of it!

Re: Leinster v Toulouse HC SF Sat 14th May 3:00pm

A great game to watch. Even though we won comfortably enough I felt that we still haven't hit fourth gear. Porter I felt had another quite game by his high standards and Doris and Conan made silly mistakes along the way. Our second row though were incredible. Sheahan really added something when he c...

by betty swallocks » May 11th, 2022, 12:06 pm There is one more signing in the works apparently, which is likely to be a TH. I saw that. I also saw that they are combing through the market which makes me believe they have no one lined up or whoever they did fell through. You can see on the boards a...

if I remember correctly it was Martyn Williams who missed the critical kick for Cardiff, I just assumed he’d be able to kick the ball, turned out he wasn’t really
Me too. The worst of it was he had a tremendous game as well. Really felt for him and the team.

Re: United Rugby Championship

by The Doc I'd prefer a Spanish franchise tbh. Not sure 5 SA teams makes much sense. Though knowing this crowd they'll start eyeing up the US again Last thing this league needs is another Zebre which is what the Spanish team would be. I wonder have the Welsh ever asked the Scots how well it went af...

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

by hugonaut Munster schools and clubs tend to put their best backrow at No8, simple as that. It means they get the ball in their hands a lot. At agegrade level, O'Mahony was a No8 [2009 U20s], so was O'Donoghue [2014 U20s], so was Kelvin Browne [2016 U20s], Coombes [at least one game as a No8 for t...

A real "Michael Cheika selection away to the Dragons" vibe about that 23.
I remember that game. Rhys even as a rookie stood out back then.

Re: Stormers v Leinster Sat 30 Apr KO 5:15pm RTE 2

by TrapperChamonix » April 28th, 2022, 3:17 pm Have the SA teams dominated everyone at scrum? I've only watched highlights so its possible its a bit misleading? Didn't a a graphic flash up during the sharks game showing that both sides had won 100% of their scrums? Even if we lost a few after that ...

by dropkick Jack O'Sullivan. He was one in Doris' year but they never played together due to injury.

Re: Tour to NZ 2022

by dropkick Kleyn was mentioned above and the scrummaging issues might play a part in his possible selection. I think though that he just lacks a bit of class in the loose. Treadwell doesn't inspire me either if I'm being honest. I'm not sure about Thornbury as I have not seen much of him for Conna...
