Just getting in early. We don't want him to feel too comfortable.
:D :D After Mick Dawson he has big boots to fill !! Hopefully he makes a huge success of it, good luck to him, a great role to get.

Not a fan of the two legged last 16 thingy but anyway.
The organisers have listened to your feedback and acted - you wouldn't have gotten that with the prior shower
Excellent, proper order, delighted they are paying attention to the real fans on the Babbling Brook. :D

Re: Heineken Cup Dates 2022/23

Don't like this format but it is what it is.....

We have done okay there, two wins over Gloucester probably gets us through and one win v Racing makes it secure. Racing away not impossible either. Glad to miss LAR and Toulouse.

Re: Leinster v Bulls Friday RDS 19:35 TG4

Hi all. I won’t go into details with my opinion on the game because it won’t be welcomed by some, and will ruin the thread. However I will commiserate with you all. Unfortunately I know all too well what you are going through, but that is the joy of sport. The last few seasons have shown where Lein...

Re: Leinster v Bulls Friday RDS 19:35 TG4

Fair play to the Bulls, did exactly what I thought they would and we compounded it by making so many mistakes. You simply can't expect to win a game making so many handling errors, daft penalties and having an entirely dysfunctional line-out. Minor miracle to be honest we only lost it by a point in ...

Re: Leinster v Glasgow URC Q/F Sat 4th June 15:15

Lovely to see Larmour running circles around people and Doris was carrying for fun by the end. But honestly not too sure what to make of it all, Glasgow absolutely atrocious and their off the ball work rate was non existent leaving endless space for us. Harlem globe trotters by the end.

Will transfer his teak tough approach onto the lads.
Is that to say that SOB is more teak tough in his approach than Leamy? I don't think so myself.

Re: Leinster v Glasgow URC Q/F Sat 4th June 15:15

Emotionally it's tougher to lose a final than a semi. Really felt that it was our year, it's hard to have hopes dashed. It's taking time to process. In the moment it felt that they had underperformed and had an off day. As I reflect I think it's more that other years we got the bounce of the ball a...

Re: Leinster v Glasgow URC Q/F Sat 4th June 15:15

As a player I think I'd look at Dan Leavy or Conor O'Brien (haven't heard anything about him but I just mention him as someone who's been having a rough time) and get over my own disappointment pretty quickly and realise that it's just great to be playing rugby at all never mind for such a great te...

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

That was for one in front of the posts, where I think it was the right call to kick it. For me, the only one I would question is the one Byrne kicked after they had just had a second row sent to the bin. Surely, if ever there was a moment to try to go for a try and back our maul (which was doing we...

Just back today, exhausted, disappointed, but proud of our team and supporters. For us, we had a brilliant few days in Marseille and appreciate that we were lucky and priveleged to be there. The atmosphere at the game was incredible, a proper home game for LaR. Let nobody doubt that. It was up ther...

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

I’m 100% sure Munster Rugby would tweet congrats to Denis Leamy if Leinster had won. Ignore them and move on !! Win the Pro 14 and regroup and make sure we have another good go at 5 stars next year in Dublin. Most of the Munsterfans I have talked to are fine , quite a few at the game yesterday and ...

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

Watching the game for me was a bit like watching Wasps for most of this season - a talented backline who kept taking wrong options, and knocking on at critical moments. But I didn't expect that from Leinster, and Sexton in particular was way off his usual standard. A lot was said on here about Skel...

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

We've lost both ways. In a tight game there were lots of moments that could have changed the course. The problem with the tactic is that you only win a low scoring game. You have to keep their score down too. As it almost worked it wasn't even necessarily the wrong tactic. I suppose my question is ...

Under pressure decision making not to go for 7 and settle for 3 continuously is not what this team has been doing this season but we did yesterday. Ultimately is it a mix of nerves and just trying to cling on and do enough rather than having the confidence to go out and win it in style ? Who knows ...
