    The Leinster thread

    The grass is greener for Roman Salanoa and Jack Aungier in Munster and Connacht respectively. Vakh Abdaladze and Tom Clarkson have a chance to step up.

    A great big Munster thread

    Not sure I agree with this. While he's not getting ahead of Furlong or Porter any time soon, they'll be in international squads quite a bit which frees up opportunities in the Pro 14. John Ryan and Stephen Archer will hoover up those opportunities in Munster. I'm not saying it's a bad move for...

    A great big Munster thread

    Roman Salanoa appears to be the latest player to make the move from Leinster to Munster. https://www.the42.ie/roman-salanoa-munster-leinster-5098109-May2020/ Hard to know what to make of it. He wasn't getting ahead of Tadhg Furlong and Andrew Porter. John Ryan and Stephen Archer aren't getting...

    So, the James Cronin story. At best careless, at worst..............

    The Leinster thread

    He's had an outstanding career. Never a top tier talent but made the most of his ability. He can rightly be very proud of his achievements thus far. Hopefully he can add to his haul of 4 European Cups, a Challenge Cup, 5 League titles and 2 Six Nations crowns before his retirement.

    Irish Rugby - The Party Years

    Based on nothing but gut instinct, this season will be completed (perhaps a few rounds of the Pro 14 regular season will be cut) and next season will be truncated. It's the fairest thing to do since we're 2/3 of the way through the season. If we were only a few rounds into the Pro 14 and...

    [COVID-19] General Discussion

    I'm in my 30s. The virus isn't at all scary for me. I have elderly parents who have health issues. It's potentially very scary for them. If everyone shows common sense through good hygiene and observing social distancing this will pass. That's a big if because there are enough idiots who'll...

    Good signing for Ulster's squad depth.

    Pro14 Suspended Indefinately - Covid 19

    It's straight knockouts. Not convoluted at all. It all depends on this blowing over by the start of May which might not be the case. Health is much more important. Leinster can have their perfect season next season. If the Premiership is cancelled, is Saracens 105 point deduction invalid...

    Pro14 Suspended Indefinately - Covid 19

    I very much doubt the league will complete the regular season. A possible solution is an expanded playoffs. 1st round 2nd v 7th, 3rd v 6th, 4th v 5th Top team in each conference based on current standings has a bye. 2nd round and beyond Top team in each conference enters the fray along with...

    Irish Rugby - The Party Years

    Hopefully because he's a massive talent and is brilliant to watch when on form. You have to wonder whether he's big enough for pro rugby though. Perhaps taking him out of the firing line at 10 and instead moving him to a playmaking 15 role would help his longevity.

    Guinness Pro14 - Round 13

    Pfft. He's old news. Some were bigging him up 20 months ago. Baird was named in the extended Ireland squad today.

    Guinness Pro14 - Round 13

    One which stood out was when Darren Sweetnam narrowly failed to score in the corner a few minutes before the end of the game. Munster did a great job spreading it wide and Calvin Nash carried with purpose, creating a 2 on 1 overlap. He didn't draw the final man which resulted in that defender...

    Guinness Pro14 - Round 13

    Hard to argue with a bonus point win against a playoff contender while giving significant playing time to a bunch of up and coming players.

    Guinness Pro14 - Round 13

    Leinster appear to be at a completely different level to all other teams in the Pro 14. The best you can hope for as a supporter is to win regularly with panche, blood young players, have massive competition for players and compete for trophies. At international level, that describes New Zealand...

    Could rugby ever be as global as basketball or even football?

    I'd like to see rugby grow but realistically, it'll never be at the level of football or basketball. At best, MLR, SLAR, the new Japanese league and GRR take off so players from tier 1 and tier 2 nations (God, I hate that term) can be properly compensated for putting their bodies on the line...

    [2020 Six Nations] England vs Ireland (23/02/20)

    It's promising if he backs up his comments. Before the tournament started, most people were saying the backrow needed to be addressed. He did so for the Scotland game yet reverted to type against England because of a win over a Wales team who were desperately poor on the day. Before the...
