Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

The comments around Nick are definitely not virtue signalling. It may be reasonably normalised to have your sexuality widely known in every day life, it’s anything but in the world of male professional sport. You really don’t have to look too far back to see examples in other sports of how people w...

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

I’m confused by the whole “virtue signalling” thing.

The man’s been through a rough time of it, he’s been supported by his teammates and club.

What do you mean by “virtue signalling in the comments”?

A talent that should not be overlooked
It's probably just a mistake, but it makes me wonder is it possible to get a share of a try - if two players touch it down at the same time.
That’s a sure sign you’ve too much time on your hands…

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

I think we should acknowledge Nick McCarthy coming out because it's obviously a big deal for him and I'm sure he'll be acutely aware of the reaction to it so it'd be good to show him some support. Huge respect to him for doing it and it's great to hear that he feels happier in himself now :happy cl...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

Move mountains to move a player who might not be first choice for Munster (!) or make the RWC squad and who isn't worth bigging up? Well it's other people's money. Bealham is a decent international tighthead, O'Toole is probably a decent international tighthead. Healy is serviceable and could doubl...

Re: Leinster exiles, where are they.

Pretty certain he is eligible for Ireland. He discussed potentially playing for Ireland in an interview with RTE and refers to Ireland as “home”. Also, his contract appears to be up this summer and he doesn’t look like he’s getting his anew Zealand chance right now, so could be Munster bound after ...

Re: Leinster exiles, where are they.

Olí Jager very solid as part of a dominant Crusaders front five in the Super Rugby final. He’s a 128kg tight head with good hands who’s a strong scrummager. Nucifora and Easterby need to get him back here fast. Big Mile is a nice rugby player but vulnerable in the tight so I really think Olí could ...
