Anyway - Munster and Lucifora can do one if they want a Leinster backrow to replace him :evil:
Munster fans will have zero shame lining up their next leinster backrows to replace.
Not sure if that is tongue in cheek, but for me, as a Munster fan, I would be disappointed if Munster do sign another backrow.

Munster are well stacked at the moment. They have very good options across the backrow, and IMO should back the options that they have.

Yeah, but that's just so stupid. People get sacked in a pandemic-caused downturn, and then a private investor offers to fund the world's best player going to an Irish province. If you're one of the people sacked or another employee, I just don't understand how it would annoy you if the signing wasn't funded by the IRFU. More of the usual nonsense, hyper-cautious, lack of vision leadership from Irish authorities.
The IRFU decides how money is spent in Irish Rugby, not some external person. If this 'investor' cared so much about Munster, they'd use the money to keep Munster's people on staff. But in reality, they couldn't give a f%~k about Munster.
Really? How do you know that? If they remain anonymous, what are they getting from giving money for a foreign signing? I have no issue with private investors helping Irish provinces to bring in world class players (in small numbers). Makes absolute sense.

Yeah, anonymous in Ireland, thats a thing.

It doesn't make sense. Munster don't need World class palyers, they need Development and Promotion officers. At some point you have to stop giving them fish.

I still don't know who paid for Leinster's centre in UCD, I'm sure others do, but anonymous can be a thing, yes. I agree that the IRFU shouldn't give them fish endlessly, but it's reasonable for any province to have 3 NIQ players at any given time, and they may as well be world class if a private investor is funding it.

And it was never anonymous. The donation was made to UCD foundation and UCD Sports /Medicine Department arranged a lease of Richview property and pitch to Leinster. Various other donors including Brendan Mullan and Paul Coulson were reputed to have made donations for equipment.

Leinster attributed all these donors at Official Opening and in Press Statement at the time.

Cooking the fish and delivering it to house. But at least they don’t need it spoon fed.

Lot of work for Earls there. Don't know how they bought that from Dr Allende.

Just against us that she Allende looks sh!t, took great advantage of Toulouse trying to cover out wide.

Yeah.

It’s weird supporting them on HC weekend when we aren’t playing.

They should’ve been in under the posts there. Farrell needlessly over ran the offload

Jack O’Donoghue having a great season and this is the best half I’ve ever seen Kilcoyne play.

From rte:

“ A bizarre sequence of turnovers and knock-ons see both sides relinquish possession easily. In the midst of it, Dave Kilcoyne distinguished himself with a terrific tackle on Ntamack, when the electric out-half went to sell a dummy, feigning a pass to Lebel on the wing but the Munster prop refused to buy it and executed a strong tackle. ”

He’s young, he’ll learn not to dummy the guys who dream of hitting him late.

Name a less dynamic 2nd row pairing than Holland and Kleyn.

Munster really fooled Toulouse with that move - running for the line with the ball, whoda thunk it
