Re: Munster 2017 -2018

The scapegoating of Keatley is getting ridiculous now. Eddi O'Sullivan was at it on off the ball on Monday,vans Ruadhrai O'Connor is at it now in the Indo. He played no worse or better than the rest of the team. They were shite all over the place. Even Saint Murray had a mare. Keatley is the Quarte...

Re: Munster 2017 -2018

Yeah, but Keatley didn't deliver slow ball. He wasn't Scannell biting in for the try, or Murray waving the player through, or Scannell coughing up (with the rest of the pack) the best attacking ball you should have had with missed lineouts in the oppostition 22 that absolutely destroyed Munster's c...

Good to see the brave and the faithful going after Keatley again. Classy stuff as always.

Re: Munster 2017 -2018

Keatley's going to get it in the neck again... He's been there a long time and never really made the position his own except by default. Bleyendaal getting injured, Holland retiring, Hanrahan not stepping up. He's the number one at Munster but probably ranks 6th or 7th amongst Irish OHs including M...

Re: Munster 2017 -2018

POM's stats this week? 8 carries for 4 metres, 2 tackles, 2 missed. You'd have to allow a player the odd poor game, it's the ones for whom it's more the norm that are killing us. The Keatley/Scannell drop goal thing was the most bizarre moment in a half of strange moments. IIRC they'd just turned d...

And JJ wasn't and isnt going to be the answer.
Ian Madigan would be streets of what they have.
Absolutely agree with that.

Re: Munster 2017 -2018

Munster not at the racing at all, sorry had to be said.
Heads are not in the right place and I suspect the trip to sa has something to do with that. Two wins against 2 poor teams and a bit of a holiday with it.

Re: Box Sets... The Next One ???

I've given a few French tv series a go on netflix and most have turned out to be a bit cac but I am really quite enjoying "The Chalet". I don't know if it has an english soundtrack or not but i prefer watch them in French with English subtitles. It's six episodes and has a decent plot and ...

Re: Munster 2017 -2018

If it wasn't for the fact that Zebo had about 10 to 15 metres fewer to travel than Ashton, that would have been a try. Zebo could maybe do with taking a leaf out of Earls' book and shedding a bit of muscle mass. Yeah.... Muscle mass. LOL. Definitely worked for Earls, said so himself. On the other h...

He’s been dialing it in for a while now anyway Not his biggest fan but that sprint to deny Ashton a try wasn't dialling it in If it wasn't for the fact that Zebo had about 10 to 15 metres fewer to travel than Ashton, that would have been a try.

Re: Jackson & Olding: were UR/IRFU right or wrong to termina

Very difficult to vote on this stark question. IRFU almost certainly would have suffered sponsor loss and a very pressured environment with media and protesters for a 6-12 month period if players were retained. Players would also have had a very difficult time if they had stayed. Key question for m...

Re: Ulster 2017 - 2018

... I think I understand the implication of what you mean, you believe that simply being charged is a green light to assassinate that person's character, forever.

Re: Box Sets... The Next One ???

Just watched the series on netflix about catching the unabomber. It's a great story but it's a bit patchy the way it's done.
The lead actor is very wooden whereas the guy who plays the unabomber is very good.
If designated survivor is a 1 and Manhunter a 10 this is a 6

Re: Ulster 2017 - 2018

Not guilty is not the same as innocent, just like not short is not the same as tall The purpose of the court case was to see if their legal status with respect to the charges could be changed from innocent to guilty. The prosecution failed in that attempt. They remain innocent. No, it was to prove ...
