Owen Farrell is to appear before an online independent disciplinary panel on the evening of Tuesday 8th September.

Online? So much for the bikkies then.
At least four weeks I would have thought. Maybe longer.

Leinster Rugby can this morning confirm the signing of tighthead prop Ciaran Parker on an initial three-month loan from Jersey Reds.

Bad news incoming on Tadhg...
David Nucifora excelling in his job yet again.

Re: Ulster v Leinster Sat 29th 19:35

A number of COVID cases among some Ulster academy players.

One senior player self isolating.

Training cancelled per Cian Tracey on Twitter.

Re: Ulster v Leinster Sat 29th 19:35

A player I’d really like to see get 20-30 mins this weekend is Dan Sheehan.

He’s very highly rated in Leinster. Looking forward to seeing him playing for the senior team sooner rather than later.

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Looking more and more likely we'll see a back three of Lowe, RK, Larmour for this one? Both with DK's injury but also we could really do with some of RK's aerial threat and presence imo. Hopefully he's up for a swansong... Looks that way but wouldn’t be surprised to see Cian Kelleher play his way i...

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

Kind of odd statement from Munster.

It’s a bit unusual to see a player quoted on an injury update.

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

Munster are going to announce soon that Carbery will be our for an indefinite period. I have to say I feel sorry for him.... Expect Munster to come sniffing from our stock now though with bleyndall and carbery potentially not being available next year This is getting worrying now tbh. I don’t think...

Good point. Conan hasn’t played for Leinster since May 2019.

Gonna be very interesting to see who is our first choice number 8..

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

I thought Cian Kelleher was showing signs of real improvement before lockdown. I’d expect to see him really challenge David Kearney for the right wing spot when the season gets back up and running. At the four minute mark into the highlights from the Kings vs Connacht match during the 2018/2019 sea...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Some potential good news...Leo saying that James Ryan could be back by mid September and the Saracens match.

The injury happened five weeks ago and he had an operation the next day.

Kruis won’t be available for Saracens.

Are they allowed to train as one group yet? Might explain why Ryan isn’t there. Might be in a different group. Clutching at straws maybe..
Looks like one group alright. No sign of Ryan.

Balls.

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

Let’s wait for confirmation on those injuries.

Injuries always give young players a chance to come through.

We have options at 10 and Ryan Baird is a tremendous prospect. Not all doom and gloom.

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

James Ryan has dislocated his shoulder in training. Massive blow for us. Is this confirmed? He was out riding a horse at the weekend. Would hardly be doing that if he had dislocated his shoulder. Or maybe he would. Never rode a horse in my life! How'd ye know about the horse riding em? My brother t...

Re: Sean O'Brien autobiography: Fuel

Who’s the ghostwriter? Might be an indication as to how open Sean intends to be.

Rob Kearney is doing his book with David Walsh. Think it’s due out around the same time.
