Re: A whiff of Cordite

Ulster are a weird one. In the amateur era, they dominated on levels not really seen since. Munster only managed 5 wins against them in 30 years between ‘65 and ‘95, including two 10 year unbeaten periods. Their record was 31 wins to 11 at the beginning of professionalism. Similarly, they went 10 y...

Re: Leinster v Munster, URC Final Round, Sat. 21st May, 7:15pm, Aviva

Being honest, they looked about 3 to 6 months away from hearing a big CLICK, and then they’ll be good again… I’m not so sure. We’ve seen glimpses of what they’ve been trying to do at various times throughout the season, even early on in the season. If it was going to click it would have done so by ...

Re: Leinster v Munster, URC Final Round, Sat. 21st May, 7:15pm, Aviva

Am I the only one who thought Murray looked good on Saturday? He’s never been a pacey kind of 9 but I thought he was pretty sharp overall. He was operating in a Munster side that simply weren’t delivering. Some of the stuff was strange. Numerous times they had 5 men securing a ruck that Leinster we...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

Leeds in the 70's were Gods. Billy Bremner and Peter "hot shot" Lorrimer. They were a heck of a team who could both beat you and beat you up, but on top of that they were absolute titans mentally speaking Steely resolve that's for sure. I seem to remember a famous digging match in the mid...

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

Leo should just give ROG a buzz and say “we know you have injured players and you know we have injured players, let’s just rule them all out instead of all this bullshit and risking flat performances and further injuries”. There are too many examples of it backfiring when teams play players who are...

Re: Leinster v Munster, URC Final Round, Sat. 21st May, 7:15pm, Aviva

Last Saturday was Devin Toner's 350th senior game of rugby. 280 for Leinster and 70 for Ireland. As well as shoring up the lineout, there were a couple of classic "Big Dev" moments as he plucked a couple of loose balls out of the sky. A proper ledge of a player and probably the greatest o...

Re: Leinster v Munster, URC Final Round, Sat. 21st May, 7:15pm, Aviva

I see on MF there is the usual chat about a lack or heart from the Munster players being behind their inability to beat Leinster. Toxic bunch. Won't be long till they are booing their players again. There's probably a bit of something in that. Munster probably were still a bit down after Toulouse. ...

Great Selection, Preparation & Motivation, Substitutions, Defence and Player Performances. It adds up to great Coaching. What a match, what a night. Too many excellent Leinster performances to list them now but a wonderful way for Dev & Nugget to depart the Aviva with such memories. And als...

Though Larmour did have an excellent game and looked a class above I thought that McCarthy was the best player on the pitch today, he was a beast

I never could figure out the Benetton shop in Stephen’s green, was there a guys and a girls section? Were all the clothes unisex. I do know for sure that they did sizes S M and L but didn’t seem to cater for LHP

But he will be a free agent after the world cup - in practice. I know he has said he doesn't want to coach. But, as Le Roux says, he is obsessed and also clearly incredibly knowledgeable on attack and defence. https://extra.ie/2022/05/18/sport/rugby/sexton-retirement-plan He says he doesn’t want to...
