Re: Connacht v Leinster Rainbow Cup Sat 8/5 19.35

Well didn’t think I would be saying thank god we had the rainbow cup to play in after Europe! After the pain of last week it was good to see the boys at it again. Shaky start but they really drove through Connacht at the end

Re: Enforcer Second-Row Options

I kept getting the feeling in team mates interviews that Kruis is a bit of a dick but I could be wrong

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

It does come down to the same problem that we had with Saracens - bigger, superior athletes. When those kind of guys are well coached, there's very little you can do. I actually disagree, today wasn't won by power. We just didn't fire at all. Too many errors, bad passes and kicks, knock ons and poo...

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

They’ve had a man down for 10, given us 9 pennos in first 30 and had a fella who is going through a meltdown under kick offs and yet they’ve not been punished. They’ve evidently figured the ref out a bit towards the end and started coming into it very well. I worry if we don’t break the momentum ea...

God Im nervous all morning these European games that I don’t get to go to and drink my nerves asleep before the game are doing serious damage to my health 😂

Quick question is this the first time we have fielded a fully grown Leinster academy pack in a European knockout match?

Re: Clermont - The Game

Never forget being at the top of the long road heading to the stadium after missing the supporters March and just seeing a sea of yellow with this little trickle of blue moving through it. Was the best game due to their fans and the never give up attitude we showed. Never forget when it looked like...

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

I've been a bit disappointed with the build up too. There's less sport on than usual for this time of year so you'd think it'd get more coverage. In particular, the rugby podcast Ive been listening to have largely eschewed it in favour of moot Lions selection debates and coverage of the Munster gam...

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

Bench will be interesting, if they do go with JGP and Frawley/Byrne I would hazard they will then do a 5/3 for fear that one of those could get injured when they go on. God every time Ross gets hit I’m going to have to look away. In answer to another post I think we are very lucky to have Ross with ...

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

Great to get the monkey off of our backs. I am far from overjoyed with that victory. IMO Munster left a fair few points on the field tonight, and given how poor Leinster were, Munster could well have put 50 on them, but their lack of clinical edge let them down. For Leinster to be kept to 3 is a go...

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

Until we meet again Chris Busby. Nobody beats Leinster 4 times in a row! :lol: I didn’t think he was bad tbh. A few errors of course but it was a real sh!t fight and he kept it flowing very well, wasn’t his fault that there were so many dropped balls etc. I’m a fan of his, think he’ll be a top clas...

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

It's funny how so many are writing a 27-3 home loss off as 'meaningless'. And yet if we had won it would've been 'that's the rivalry dead'. Losing by 24 points at home to our main rival can never be meaningless. And I'd hope the lads who didn't show up tonight will feel that, or else they're not go...

Couldn’t help but have a smile at Leo as he spoke about the game there. Saying the guys got a lesson and they will have to learn the next time they get their chance. Sounds like this game has just made his selection chats with certain players easier for the next few weeks during europe

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

That was poor. Hopefully none of the lack of aggression seeps into next week. We never really looked like getting into that game. Nick McCarthy will be a big step up as a third choice 9 next year. Hawkshaw at 10 is a bit of worry. He's not hugely athletic and doesn't look like he can control a game...

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

I hate every comment in this forum tonight that this game is pointless. Leinster v Munster no matter when it is is a grudge match and while the guys tonight were well off it they did show some passion. We’ve lost better team won but it hurts like hell for me tonight. I hate POM that’s how it feels f...
