Re: Ireland Autumn Internationals 2021

Likewise Sheehan, although it will be interesting to see what happens if Kelleher/Herring pick up a knock. Will they bench Sheehan against a top test side? Surely he's the only other hooker in the squad so he'd have to bench (or start?). What would the alternative be? If we can get a pack of Porter...

Re: Enforcer Second-Row Options

I like the look of Dunne, he certainly seems to have the athletic ability and size. I get the feeling there's something missing from his game at the moment.

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

I've been thinking about how well Dan Sheehan played, particularly in light of the fact that he was up against Bismarck du Plessis in his head-to-head. Bismarck is certainly past his peak, but in his prime he was one of the very best hookers of the professional era [25+ years at this stage] ... not...

Re: Leinster exiles, where are they.

So our lads who play with"Munster" for the moment .... Flake had a meh game, still missing the spark he showed with us. Loughman got a nice turnover that was about it. Goneway looks like a player who's low on confidence - can't help that he'll be in Zebos shadow all season and "Munst...

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

The prop switch is a big risk and very unIrish, I love it. I'm trying to figure out what Healy gains from the switch. He goes from head-and-shoulders the best LH in Leinster and easily in the best two LHs in Ireland, to arguable the third choice TH at Leinster? If it's a success, he probably plays s...

Re: Unacceptable treatment of women’s rugby.

People are getting all het up about this, and rightly so, but they aren't asking the right questions. The right questions are... 1) Why weren't the senior provincial womens teams classified as an elite level by the Government (and thus allowed used indoor changing facilities) b) How hard did the IR...

Re: Leinster v Harlequins, Sept. 10th, 7pm.

Calling for sacking the management over selecting Ross Byrne in a pre-season game is wildly OTT. It's hardly positive discourse that should be immune from criticism.

Hi all. I saw that Leo praised the control Ross B brought at OH in the second half. We were there. There was little of the sort. Courageous and committed, but definitely no control nor ability to play heads up rugby, poor and slow passer - same as always unfortunately with a huge gap between Ross a...

I'll be watching this Spicer lads progress with great interest. Hopefully his size is utilized correctly and not see as a hindrance. It took players like Dev and Will Skelton years to become the players they became, hopefully this lad is given the same patience and not shipped off abroad at 22.

Better or worse than "Finishers"? :evil: Definitely one of rugby pet-hates, along with; the term "enforcer", players not pulling their socks up and over-exuberant turnover celebrations. Literally, figuratively or both Literally. VDF, Henshaw etc are worse than Hitler.

Re: The Leinster Front Row preview 2021/22

Taking this from elsewhere, but think Leinster could do worse than looking at Bobby Sheehan again, still just 21, very impressive in this game at hooker before moving to 6 in 2nd half, darts, carrying, big hits defensively. full game here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXRc-0WV5MI&ab_channel=...
