Re: Rugby Pet-Hates

Daire O'Brian talking as if he understands Rugby on ATH;
Continuous pick and go attempts from inside 5 metres;
Hand flapping by scrum-halves if ball isn't 'on a plate' for them;
Yapping scrum-halves shouting for offside.

Re: URC - Irish Provinces - Team of Week 1

What did Healy do in his 27 minutes to warrant inclusion? According to Leinster's website's stats, he made 2m from 3 carries, 0 tackles and conceded 1 (scrum) penalty. I also recall him losing the ball once in contact Survived 27 mins at THP against a decent opponent on a weekend when Marty Moore w...

Re: Zebre v Leinster Sat 17 Sep KO 1pm RTE2

Let's wait and see how Zebre perform against other teams. Personally, I was very impressed by their fitness, their aggression in possession and the enterprise and inventiveness of their backs. Certainly, our defensive performance gave them lots of latitude in attack. However, their ill discipline ga...

Re: Leinster v Treviso Fri 23rd 7.35 TG4

Treviso will play worse and win games this year. That was a European Pool-level Leinster team playing at very high pace throughout with relatively few mistakes. Jenkins is certainly a good addition and Baird is becoming a work-horse. McCarthy mixed good and sloppy in his cameo. Larmour and Kearney w...

Re: Lancaster set to leave

I wonder would Plumtree fancy a return to Ireland. Goodman's there for backs/attack, you've got Cullen essentially in a DOR role, and McBryde or AN Other as scrum coach, so you're really looking for someone to coach lineout, maul and defence. Plumtree was lineout and maul coach for Ireland, and I b...

Re: Lancaster set to leave

I concur with the summary at the end that the loss of Contepomi, Dawson, Lancaster and Leamy will have a significant cumulative effect. Leo will now have an even bigger challenge.

Re: Zebre v Leinster Sat 17 Sep KO 1pm RTE2

I thought it was a bit strange that there was a minute silence for the death of queen Elizabeth before the game, considering it didn't affect either team (or rugby in general). Does anyone know if this was a URC directive? I thought I was seeing things. Crazy that it was allowed happen. Is it reall...

O'Brien was playing for Clontarf, so probably had free accommodation provided by the club.

Re: Rugby Championship 2022

I think Reynal was right to sanction Foley but I'd have thought it would be a free kick and not a penalty. Typically when a team delays a lineout, scrum or whatever, it's a turnover of possession by way of free kick. Yes. Law 9 (foul play) section 7 paragraph d. Time wasting is a free kick. Agree. ...

Re: Zebre v Leinster Sat 17 Sep KO 1pm RTE2

As an aside, Bradley's brief summary of how and why Jenkins ended up with us was a revelation and explains a lot and also gives me confidence that we will see his best in Blue, Yellow and White.
