Re: Dragons Away, 19th Feb, 7.35pm

Is TOB available? Wasn’t expecting Osborne to be ahead of TOB. TOB has been out for three months so probably “a week too soon”. TOB’s form was so good before his injury that it’s unlikely Osborne has overtaken him. His ankle injury did take longer to heal than originally anticipated so hopefully th...

Yeah, great to see.

Hopefully Penny, Deegan and Frawley do the same.

Re: Dragons Away, 19th Feb, 7.35pm

Hopefully Tommy O’Brien will be back for this one.

He looked very good before his injury. Ankles are notoriously unpredictable injuries to heal and they tend to reoccur.

Let’s hope we see Tommy sooner rather than later.

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

Nick McCarthy is set to leave Munster and re-join his native Leinster ahead of next season. https://www.the42.ie/nick-mccarthy-leinster-munster-5341108-Jan2021/ Good to have him back. Should never have left in the first place. I think we all know who encouraged the move in the IRFU. I’m dreading to...

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

Ulster signing Nakarawa (they must have borrowed the turnip’s money tree!) looks like good news for Leinster as we’re more likely to keep Doris, Conan and Deegan. I don’t think so. They’re likely losing Sam Carter too, and Nakarawa is a lock. We’ll still supply them with one of our back row players...

Re: Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

Match statistics don’t always tell the full story of a game but if you didn’t know the result of the game last Saturday and just looked at the statistics, you would deduce that Leinster won.

Which they did.

Re: Away to Scarlets, 30/01, Saturday @ 7.30pm

Tommy O’Brien was playing really well before his injury.

His recovery seems to be taking longer than anticipated.

Real shame. Hopefully he can get back during the 6 Nations.

Re: Munster Away 26/12 19:35 Eir Sport 1

Weren't you laughing during the week about claims the gap has lessened? There is some truth in there. We don’t look right. Will Connors is a terrific player but can’t see how he gets picked ahead of JVDF. Unless Andy Farrell wanted some minutes in Connors. I have a feeling Sexton may be cut loose a...

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

I’d be pretty shocked if Leinster let Penny go. Leinster will fight tooth and nail to keep him.

I wonder will Leinster consider letting Conan go if they are forced to lose an 8. Conan is 29 next summer and is very injury prone.

Re: Leinster Squad 20-21

You do realise this probably means another Leinster player moving north? More than probably. It’s guaranteed his replacement will be sourced from our wealth of back rows — most likely Deegan as mentioned. Sure, he’s not a like for like replacement, but we can’t really offer them a player exactly in...

Re: Leinster and scrumhalf development

How is Paddy Patterson coming along? I remember PP making his senior debut and being quite impressed but haven’t seen much of him since. I know he was involved with the 7’s but thought we would have seen a little more of him at this stage.

Re: frawley to munster?

Hopefully just a rumour but I think Leinster fans are bound to be slightly paranoid, especially with Nucifora in situ.
