Tallaght RFC Forever Home Campaign

Tallaght RFC Forever Home Campaign Tallaght Rugby Club was set up in 2002 as part of the “Tallaght Project”, an IRFU initiative designed to introduce rugby in non-traditional areas. Over the last 19 years the club has come on leaps and bounds with the inclusion of a second senior men's team, a women...

Re: Leinster v. Ulster, Rainbow Cup, Fri 14 May, 20.15hrs

Still think the signing of Gopperth was MOC's biggest mistake. As a club we turned our back on Mads, a home grown lad with huge potential, but with workons, in favour of a middle of the road kiwi 10 who while good enough to win the Pro 12 was never going to win Europe. Sweet jesus. How do people st...

Madigan looked fine from the outside but fell down the pecking order (sometimes falling hard, and usually with controversy) at Leinster, Bordeaux, Bristol and now Ulster.

I wish him success, but I wouldn't want us to take a chance on him.
What controversies

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

First, Ryan isn’t having a good season, but then Lawes isn’t having a season at all and Hill is nowhere near the same level. This revisionist rubbish about Ryan based on a mediocre injury interrupted season and triggered here by trash-talker Gatland’s comments are laughable. Gatland is not a sincer...

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

Ask an England supporter if Ryan lacks a "nasty streak", not the Irish media. I only remember that aggression in one match V England in Twickenham. I just think he could be more aggressive. Anyway, I was asking you lot, not an England supporter First, Ryan isn’t having a good season, but then Lawes...

Re: 2021 Lions

Some really odd calls in that squad. I am delighted for Conan, he has had an Alan Quinlanesque career to date, and all fit may not even make the Leinster squad for the big games. These are the type of selections which I really like. I think 8 Irish players is about right for where that Irish team i...

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

According to ROC, Gatland said that La Rochelle's physical dominance on Sunday was a factor in Ryan not going, and that Leinster have been beaten up regularly in the biggest games. Ouch! Definitely not untrue, Ryan is a big unit does he lack a nasty streak? anyone who allows himself to be shoe'd ly...

I care a lot about the Lions. It’s the pinnacle of every players career. Can’t wait for the announcement tomorrow. I don’t understand how you just don’t care about. You’re surely gonna watch all the games do you not find it interesting? I’d like to see our players do well on tour. I regard playing ...

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...

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...

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.

Barnes was one-eyed all match. Officiating like that screws any competition.
