With his two tries tonight, Scott Penny has now scored the same amount of Leinster tries as Jordan Larmour (15) in 32 less games
Larmours try scoring record aint great to be fair.
That's the positive attitude I've come to expect from you GG :lol:

No but someone in the media in next day or so is gonna say "he's not getting enough game time so get him down to Munster to help Salanoa with the spreadsheet he's using to calculate his game time"

Thanks for the stats! Don’t forget that he was playing out of position and as part of a sloppy team performance overall, he really stepped up and was exceptional.

Thought Luke was top class as well. Had that clearout and the rip that I mentioned earlier and then his covering was excellent as always and he took his try well with a typical trailing line. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when JGP comes back because I think he’s improved a lot of the weaker elements of his game, his box kicking is really top notch now.

Josh VDF was very good as well, it’s no surprise at this stage but his engine is phenomenal.

Edit: Dooley good too.

Pretty sloppy outside of those three although I thought ROL was good in parts and I think our lineout has improved.

Didn't realise that win guarantees us the final place whatever happens against Ulster. Nice to have.
Don't think so! Isn't there two more games after that (Zebre(A) and Ospreys(H))?

I think a loss against Ulster still leaves it in our own hands though

We’re 6 ahead with 15 points to play for, so 10 points from the three games needed.

Of course a win next weekend would pretty much seal it too.

Yeah we still have Zebre away and Ospreys at home after the Ulster showdown.
It's understandable that people are confused.
What we need is johng's "Reckoning" thread, or whatever it was called.

Glasgow were good tonight tbf. The red card was the right call but I can't imagine that he meant it. Apart from the red and 2 yellows for Glasgow it was clear that Frank Murphy is a gibbon and still hates us. :lol:

Poor oul Toland was desperate for Glasgow to win, must have killed him to give the MOTM to a ladyboy.

:happy clapper: :happy clapper: :happy clapper:

Saint POM returns for a series of angry faces against England.

Thought Harry Byrne was exceptional before he went off......what is Farrell thinking re Billy Burns, don't get it.....but anyway we get to see Harry in blue so it's fine.....

Aside from that Penny and VDF were incredible. Lots of learning for some of the young lads who got schooled at times but it's all positive stuff.

Hawkshaw looks like the real deal.....

Congrats to Alex Soroka on making his debut tonight.

Alex was 4 years old when Devin Toner and Johnny Sexton both made their debuts at home to Borders in Jan 2006.
Look out Itchy, he's Irish

Good result for us in the end after a game that turned very difficult for us when Harry Byrne went off.

For the majority of the season we have been stuck with playing guys who have barely met each other in midfield. We've had nine different centre combinations in 14 games!

vs Dragons: Frawley [Tommy O'Brien, 9 mins] & Ringrose - [Combo #1]
@ Treviso: Henshaw & Ringrose - [Combo #2]
vs Zebre: Frawley [Silvester, 64 mins] & Turner - [Combo #3]
@ Glasgow: Tommy O'Brien & O'Loughlin - [Combo #4]
@ Ospreys: Tommy O'Brien [O'Sullivan, 65] & O'Loughlin [Turner, 59] - [Combo #4]
vs Edinbrugh: Frawley & Turner - [Combo #3]
vs Blues: Frawley & Turner - [Combo #3]
@ Montpellier: Frawley & Henshaw - [Combo #5]
vs Northampton: Henshaw & Ringrose [Frawley 12, 75] - [Combo #2]
vs Connacht: O'Loughlin [Hawkshaw, 56] & Jimmy O'Brien [O'Sullivan, 62] - [Combo #6]
vs Ulster: Robbie Henshaw & Ross Byrne - [Combo #7]
@ Munster: Henshaw & Ringrose - [Combo #2]
@ Dragons: Ross Byrne [Hawkshaw, 77] & O' Loughlin - [Combo #8]
vs Glasgow: O'Loughlin & Osborne - [Combo #9]

Glasgow had a lot of quality players in their side but look like a team with low esprit de corps. They contributed to beating themselves – obviously Hastings' red card had a big impact, but I think that the soft 14 points they gave up in the first 10 minutes was a bigger issue. They were stuck in the blocks and gave themselves too much ground to make up.

Obviously not a very sharp performance, but a bonus point win and 40 points on the board is always a good result.

Dan impressed me again when he came on. His open field play with ball in hand is great to watch. Thought a couple of the older generation looked way off the pace. Think thats the first game I’ve seen where Cronin is not explosive in. Toner also was looking out on his feet, but like the true warrior he is he kept trying to make tackles to the end. Fardy looked out in the 1st half but in fairness think he put in a shift in the 2nd half

Peter Dooley put in another decent shift but missed one or two tackles. That was a feature of the game, the number of tackles missed. We really need to sharpen up for next week. It wasn’t systems breakdown or clever deception. Just failing to make the tackle stick.
