Two fingers from him at Gatland?

I mean it quite clearly was yes.

Heard he gave a stinging interview afterwards about Gatty too.

Interesting to see the body composition of a few players last night.

Thought Lowe looked svelte and very fit and Deegan has clearly put on a few kilos.

COB looked like he was slimmer than I remembered too.

Thought the same about Deegan. Thought he had got bigger before his injury too but had still hadn’t filled out all that much, looked huge last night. Looked more like a solid Vermuelen type 8 than the Spies physique he used to have.

Ross Moloney looked massively compact too.

Hi all. I saw that Leo praised the control Ross B brought at OH in the second half. We were there. There was little of the sort. Courageous and committed, but definitely no control nor ability to play heads up rugby, poor and slow passer - same as always unfortunately with a huge gap between Ross and Johnny. And Harry preferred for Ireland but at number 3 for Leinster. In 5th season now and no evident development. If he is again preferred to Harry, then really have to start seriously questioning the mgt. Ross has impressed maybe 2 games of 100...what have I and my group missed over the last 5 years ??

Rugby is back, crowds are back, we've a new season that hasn't even started yet to get excited by and you come on to have a moan about one player?

Mortifies me I support the same team as people like you

I saw the highlights last night, the two young centres especially the 12 look v good players and also the hooker

Mcgrath and Sexton are the stand out half backs in the competition , McGrath has an excellent pass and always impresses me

The final try was as scrappy as you'll see on a rugby field but they all count :)

Jaysus, that was a bit OTT. He was trying to get a discussion going, everyone has opinions.

Calling for sacking the management over selecting Ross Byrne in a pre-season game is wildly OTT. It's hardly positive discourse that should be immune from criticism. Attacking a player who's given 100% to Leinster over many years isn't the way to start the kind of debate most posters here would like to see. It is a way to get foed.

He was only on the bench and Harry Byrne was part of the summer tour so there's cause to hold him back.
