    Is Munster Rugby in a crisis?

    lol, brilliant stuff.

    Rob Penney confirmed as new Munster head coach

    Joe Schmidt was a backs coach at Clermont before taking over at Leinster. Munsters problems wont be with the coahc, it'll be with the playing pool. Its just not good enough, same as it was under McGahan.

    Heineken Cup Semi Final: Clermont vs Leinster - 29/04/12

    So the Georgian is better than Healy because an incompetent ref would have penalised Healy, and because Healy is a loosehead prop? Is that your point? Could you just clear it up a little cause thats all I could read into what you said. Incidently, if you were to say that Georgina (see what I...

    Heineken Cup Final: Ulster vs. Leinster - 19/05/2012

    I dont think many of us would doubt that. The potential is definately there. I meant it as a compliment when I said that you guys remind me of where Leinster were four or five years ago, just before we ambushed the turnips munchers, and started to win trophies. You are building something very...

    Heineken Cup Final: Ulster vs. Leinster - 19/05/2012

    They werent far off a full team a few weeks ago. Aside form injuries and suspensions, I dont think they rested that many players. They really wanted to win it, and were well short against a Leinster team that didnt even ask Darce and Nacewa to travel. Dont get me wrong, I rate Ulster very...

    Heineken Cup Semi Final: Clermont vs Leinster - 29/04/12

    So because the ref wasnt incompetent the Georgian was unlucky not to get more undeserved penalties? Thats your arguement? Finally, I didnt question the Georgians skills, I first of all questioned why you would compare a TH to a LH. Then questioned his fitness. I commented on Healys skills...

    Heineken Cup Semi Final: Clermont vs Leinster - 29/04/12

    Just stopped in to see if anything had changed. I see its the exact same bunch of posters spouting the exact same opinions about the same Irish players, unwilling to listen to anything new. You see? a perfect example of it. IF this, IF that, no mention of Healys work around the park, his...

    Heineken Cup Final: Ulster vs. Leinster - 19/05/2012

    As Schmidt said after the Clermont game, it'll be a challenge to get the teams head right for this game. Ulster havent beaten Leinster in quite a long time, there is a reason for that.

    Heineken Cup Final: Ulster vs. Leinster - 19/05/2012

    Stay the **** away from the fanzones. The last one in Cardiff had one bar with about 6 taps for the 1000's who turned up. The fanzone itself just turned into a massive queue for the bar.

    Heineken Cup Semi Final: Clermont vs Leinster - 29/04/12

    For the 35 mins or so he lasts in a game possibly. Though one is a TH the other a LH. Sivivatu off the ball on Nacewa left Isa puking on the ground. Cudmore off the ball on Boss flattened him completely. No one have a problem with the props simulation after Cullens slap? There were shenanigans...

    RWC 2011: THE FINAL!!! France vs. New Zealand

    You are right about Parra but its a particularly harsh decision given that he too retreated well into an onside position before attempting to make the tackle. Its not about New Zealand cheating, its about the referee. Look at 6 seconds in, and especially 1:15 in. Both are absolutely bizarre...

    IRB Player of the Year 2011

    No you wont, you'll be miserable. Wouldnt worry about it though, wont happen as long as we continue to make the selection based on the success of the team, the performances of players in 3 matches a year, and of course the popularity of the player in New Zealand.

    Who's the IRB trying to BS??

    Thought the New Zealand public made this a pretty special tournament. They embraced it at a community level across the country and made it a special experience for all the travelling fans and teams. That will definately be remembered and should be the template going forward. I think the...

    RWC 2011: THE FINAL!!! France vs. New Zealand

    Thats one of the Irish channels actually. I thought they make a fair point. Matt Williams (the Aussie) is a really good analyst. Francis is a bit of a gobshite but dont let it detract fromt he point they were trying to make. Its a valid point about the referee. No one is saying New Zealand...

    RWC 2011: THE FINAL!!! France vs. New Zealand

    Look around a bit. Pretty much every neutral forum on the internet is talking about Jouberts performance. Even the South African ones. You dont need to take it so personally. New Zealand fully deserved to win the tournament, they were by far the best team in the tournament, and fully confirmed...

    IRB Player of the Year 2011

    Yeah haha, though it goes to show that form or performances have nothing to do with it really. Even Kiwis agreed that McCaw didnt deserve it that year. Discredited the whole award. Just give it to a Kaino or Dusatoir depending on who wins the final, and we can all instantly forget about it again.

    IRB Player of the Year 2011

    Exactly. Even though he hasnt been nominated I still kinda expect McCaw to win it again. Couldnt really give a **** thoguh, its a completely meaningless award.
