    I'd say there's a few clubs chasing him. Luckily for those clubs he isn't hard to catch because he'll cut infield and straight into contact.
    I'd better be properly Leinstertained at this, or else it will have ruined my big day... Big Ginger 8's birthday. Of anyone wants to send him well wishes I will happily dox him right here in this thread.

    Weakened Saints squad too by the look of it. I know ye were all trying to get up to Sarries level the last few years in the prem, didn't think you'd be dropping to their level as well!

    “It’s not fair that Irish teams rest players in the league and get an advantage in Euro- oh wait never mind.”
    To be fair I’ve very little idea what a strong vs weakened Saints team looks like.

    Reinach and Hutchinson are probably their two best players, Waller down to the bench too. Rotating makes semse to be fair, they won't win tomorrow and have a sniff in the league.

    Oh I always agreed rotation was fair game. Clubs can prioritize what they want!

    Think Reinach is injured to be fair. Can't get too confident for this one, still scarred by 2013.

    I'm not drunk. Saints just scored. Bad best day of the year so far. Won't be happy til 50 is hit. (Points or pints)

    Absolutely woeful call really. Can't complain though overall.

    Leinster are going to win the CCup. 14 tries piled on the Prem leader. Nuff said.

    Saracens would really worry me if they got out of the pools (looking increasingly likely). So long as we avoid a trip to the France we should be grand otherwise, although you guys could easily beat on us on your day.

    ATM we're nowhere close to our form of last year. We've been scuppered by a bad sushi. Last season we had a full squad from late August.
    Now we've just lost Kolbe for several weeks (and he had just returned) and Dupont has yet to play for the club this season. Says it all.

    Holy hell that is some scoreline. Even accounting for the salary cap Northampton must have a wage bill significantly in excess of Leinster surely?

    Farrell is going to be behind the 8-ball from his first game at the helm of Ireland if Cullen remains on course for the double-double.
