Re: Glasgow Warriors v Leinster Friday 7.35 Premier/TG4

So making an effort to learn the gaelge would be wasted because the commentary still wouldn't make much sense. Making an effort to spell gaeilge correctly is a choice. Correct Your spelling of correct endorses my point. :clap: Whether you choose to use it or not is one, thing. Not spelling gaeilge ...

Re: Glasgow Warriors v Leinster Friday 7.35 Premier/TG4

Leavy's contribution was the biggest outcome of the match for me. Great to see him comfortably deal with that physicality. He does things that few backs and fewer forwards can do, principally make things happen out of very little opportunity. He also tidies up so much stuff, resetting moves that are...

Re: Glasgow Warriors v Leinster Friday 7.35 Premier/TG4

So making an effort to learn the gaelge would be wasted because the commentary still wouldn't make much sense. Those are bad eyesight errors. Doris and Baird were wearing the same scrum caps. Osbourne and Frawley are lanky ginger backs. If you didn’t understand the language you would still pick out...

Re: Glasgow Warriors v Leinster Friday 7.35 Premier/TG4

The commentary on TG4 was fairly useless today. Baird & Doris were both Baird, Leavy was Molony at one point and Osbourne was a second Frawley. That and giving incorrect explanations of why penalties were awarded So making an effort to learn the gaelge would be wasted because the commentary sti...

Re: Glasgow Warriors v Leinster Friday 7.35 Premier/TG4

Nah. JCB shoves him with his elbow to yer mans shoulder but in slips off and he makes some kind of contact with his face. He didn't mean to make face contact but he did. Glad we got away with the yellow TBH. Only saw last 1/2 hour so cant comment on big Jim but he's a welcome addition to the co-com...

Re: Leinster vs Zebre, 9/10, 1pm @TheRDS, RTE.

Leavy at 6 is the way forward for him. Was never a quick open side and two significant operations won't have made him any faster...but he is a player that makes things happen in a way others don''t, like the drawing of defenders and offload for the disallowed McCarthy try last week. X-factot

Re: Rumour Mill

I think part of the Byrne rumour is coming from JJ, but it's a very different case. That was JJs 3rd move, he was 29 so it was his last chance for a payday and his position was imploding. He was getting out while he still had capital. It was very clear the way fans pivoted to Ben Healy after a few ...

Re: Leinster v Dragons, Rodney Parade, Sunday 3rd of October at 2pm, RTE

As a collective I suspect that the main flaw was poor mental preparation rooted in a lack of respect for Dragons. If you aren't at the right pitch mentally on game day then nothing you try and do can switch it on in the face of an opposition that are really competing. The malaise set in there and sp...

So much for Porter to LH being a 'a stupid idea of the sort usually cooked up by journos after a boozy lunch or fans on forums' and people struggling to believe 'the Leinster coaching staff are that stupid'. Very interested to see how it works out. A lot of people could have played the I told you s...

Re: Leinster v Bulls Aviva Stadium 5.15 Sat 25th Sept TG4

I wonder where Osbourne is earmarked to come on? He’ll obviously be covering a few positions but maybe 13 is the main one if Ringrose hasn’t been in full training for long. The fact that he is picked as the outfield cover in #23 jersey for this game (with 2 injury prone centres in the starting team...

Very experienced Leinster 23, with just Sheehan and Osborne as greenhorns and Ala'alatoa as the experienced virgin.

Re: Leinster v Bulls Aviva Stadium 5.15 Sat 25th Sept TG4

Healy in the 18 shirt is the most notable one for me, just shading Ports at LH which has been signalled for a year now, followed up with Alaalatoa signing and then the serious change in body shape,which was as good a sign that the swap was serious as we were going to get prior to a team announcement...

Saw that. And he has reference to Healy trying out at TH pre-season as well as reference to both Leinster and Ireland aiming for a Porter-Kelleher-Furlong front row.

We'll know soon enough. The change in Porter's body shape is almost as dramatic as the signing of another Tier 1 TH.
