When did Reggie start doing the main commentator gig?
Don't give up the day job Reggie.
I think he has done really well. Not easy to be main commentator on a dead rubber Pro14 game from a studio a few hundred miles away.

He's certainly no worse than some of the guys who are full time main commentators.

That awkward moment when Reggie Corrigan says Scott Penny got subbed off (even mentions he can see Sean O’Brien packing down in the scrum) and Penny receives a pass 10 seconds later.

Lots of good things here but a couple of things on the negative side.

Our fielding of the high ball under pressure has been very poor, both from the shepherding lines the defenders running back have taken, and the actual angle of attack from the jumpers.

Also, think Penny has been fairly poor in the contact so far. Knocked on at least twice in the tackle.

Outrageous finish from Dave for his 50th Leinster try.

Harry Byrne take a f%~king bow. That was ridiculous. The three passes before the try were just insanely good.

In fairness, Penny’s work on the other side of the ball has been excellent. Looks like he could be a top class poacher.

Tim Corkery should of at least attempted to tackle him there putting the shoulder in instead of watching him score..

Very entertaining game overall.

Thought Harry, DK, Sheahan and Dunne were the pick of the bunch for us.

Brilliant to see young guys take their shot.

I can see why Leo is giving so much gametime to MOR, he looks a really natural rugby player. A lot to iron out in his game but he has lots about him.

Harry is just so clearly a class above this level. His passes for DK's try in the corner were ridiculous.
