Re: URC 22/23

If he is so keen about improving standards in the league, he should put resources into training up, monitoring and paying a panel of good referees. At the moment, 90% of refs who ply their trade in the URC are way below the standard required for a serious league. It has long been a problem going ba...

Re: Tighthead Prop going forward

Dan Brennan is 132kg loosehead. Does anyone think he'd be the same weight having come through the Irish system? He'd be a good chunk smaller. I don't know whether he'd be a better or worse player.

Making out like academy players up and down the country were getting smoked by AIL lads. The very odd time maybe and ironically it was the loose head prop on his own te...

Re: AIL 22/23

No bother. Didn't want to miss anything today. ;-) it wouldn’t have been a bad idea to have it as a double header with the Leinster v Sharks match. Next year!

by munster#1 Great to see Munster expanding their initiative for Centres of excellence. Munster will build a full sized indoor pitch along with an full sized outdoor pitch along with gym and other facilities, for use in the development of grass roots rugby. https://www.live95fm.ie/news/live95-new ....
