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

Does anyone know if Craig Casey is playing for munster tonight, the commentators and pundits haven't mentioned him at all. One player I genuinely didn't know was on the pitch until about the 70th minute was Andrew Conway. Fineen Wycherley too. Don't understand the hype around this guy at all. Ragdo...

Re: Corona Virus

Are the EU right to stop COVID AZ vaccine exports? There might be a few ifs that we don't know about but assume that contractually the exports should be allowed notwithstanding the EU's own contractual arrangements. I thought it was the Italians that were preventing the export of vaccines from thei...

Re: Ulster, Away, March 6th, 7.35pm

I just checked out the Ulster boards site. They use the same set up as this only it’s a lighter blue... it’s almost spooky like you got transferred to an alternate reality If it spooks you out too much, you could always switch to our dark theme - https://www.leinsterfans.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=7...

Re: Leinster Academy 20-21

Gladwell talked about it and like most things he vaguely understood it. 10,000 hour rule being another. It's not considered that much of a thing in LTAD as far as I'm aware. You'd have to assume all parents are procreating evenly across the year and so many other things for it to be nearly so much ...

A certain Cook Islander who took a while to find his feet?
Ahh, but he had indigestion.
Dogged his whole career, so it did.
He felt a bit ruff afterwards though

Re: Corona Virus

Listening to people in every media source complaining about the lack of a "road plan" to re-enter normal life, causes me great annoyance and frustration. The vast majority of prognostications from every official source come with the caveat "subject to the continued level of incidence of new cases o...

Re: Are Leinster an offloading team? Does the Leinster attack lack imagination?

Offloading is sometimes a sign of having to force play. Leinster offload somewhat but teams live off turnovers and you have to be realistic about doing what works. If you’re able to build phases and then scores then why not. If teams leave themselves open to offloads we can be quick to take advanta...

Re: 6 Nations 2021

We need things to change that's for sure however we shouldn't throw the baby out with the bath water. Ireland has been relatively successful in the professional era and a lot more successful than in the amateur era. So we need to identify the issues that need to be addressed while holding on to the...

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

Unfortunately you are right here, 33/34 age wise for a backrower is only a pup in the eyes of the IRFU when you see an out of form 33 year old wing still being selected. Anyway at least Munster are benefitting from it, he's still valuable to the men in red. I think you have misinterpreted what I am...
