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

Did you ever say you wanted to 'go out in a car and tread over blacks' or call a black maid a 'primate' back in the day Peg Leg? Cos Pablo Matera did. There's a big difference between saying something stupid on social media and outright racism. I don't disagree that Matera can't change his ways. Bu...

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

Also what would we do if a Skelton type player was signed and got injured a la Snyman? I’m all for getting more power into the side but there’s loads of things that we need to look at and some are easily fixable. I don’t want to hang anyone out to dry but I thinkk the coaches are getting off lightl...

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

Look simple example: Would we have beaten a monster Clermont pack and team in 2012 without Thorn ? Not so sure, himself and Cullen immense that day. I got the feeling that Schmidt knew that we needed a 2nd row lump and pulled a rabbit out of a hat in Thorn. Of course it is all well and good talking...

First a drugs cheat and now a racist. He'd certainly wear the jersey with 'pride and honesty' alright. The latter was a long long time ago. People can learn the err of their ways and grow. I don't think I would have given a good or even fair account of myself if social media existed back then. Did ...

Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

Barnes was one-eyed all match. Officiating like that screws any competition. Although in fairness the Del Boy French is coming along nicely :D I admire Barnes for making use of the French he has, imperfect as it is, in public. Takes a lot of courage. People are too afraid of making mistakes in a ne...

FDI is a TLA for Foreign Direct Investment. Does it have another meaning. CDC date 5th May 2020, how out of date do you want to be? Flu epidemic or season. COVID isn't the flu but for some strange reason there was virtually no flu season in the winter just past. Nobody is claiming that masks are a ...

motorised vehicles LB,
Doesn't apply to e-bikes so don't see why e-scooters should/would be any different
Ah but the argument shouldn’t be ‘it doesn’t apply to e-bikes” because if a bike or a scooter has a motor then they should be liable for MOTOR tax

Re: Friday's rant

Sorry to hear about the accident. Agree that they should be regulated - especially considering they've been regulated in other European countries for a good while now. Would probably require better cycling infrastructure. Don't see why they would require tax or insurance though! They'd surely be in...

Re: Leinster Rugby announce plans for Rapid Antigen Testing Pilot

Speaking as someone with 'close experience' of the Irish civil/public service, it is basically all risk avoidance. Keep the show ticking along for the 1-4 years you're in a particular role, avoid potentially brilliant new ideas as they might go wrong and you'll get blamed, and over time, if you're ...

I hope your Mum recovers and understand how your feel. They are a menace and too often in the hands of some who pay no attention to other road (or footpath) users. Cheers RTB, she's a tough lady and thankfully she's home now. I really wanted to go to the cops, but she forbade me. I'd sooner cross S...

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

Props to Lock - he's clearly got the in track. I'd have been happy to get one of Ringrose, Ryan, Doris and TOB back. Getting all 4 is massive. Neither 9 inspiring too much confidence however. But hopefully Foley thrives. This could well be his audition for a dev contract (he's year 3 if I'm not mis...

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

Must be very hard for HOS mentally at the moment. Potentially his last few games as a pro and he's being asked to start against Munster and bench in Europe. Must be messing with his head. Although at least the pressure is off and it's a chance for him to show what he can do. Decent enough shop wind...

Absolute ledge of a player, very under appreciated elsewhere on this island, but who gives a f%~k what they think anyway.

To steal a phrase, I can use a persons opinion on Bent to judge how seriously to take their opinion
