Re: European finals weekend - May 2022

Loving the way Wayne Barnes has suddenly transformed from being ‘Best Ref In The World’ to ‘Guy We Could All Do Better Than’! Fickle folk, rugby fans🤔

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 04th June 2022 KO 15:00

Not sure if I’m imagining this, but my impression is that Nemzy had slimmed down somewhat at the start of the season, but on returning from his mid season (injury?) break had bulked up again. Like many other big running backs (Manu a case in point) I thought he was a better all round player when car...

Re: 7s ethics?

Knickers. Twist. compare and contrast with: Hand of Back. Bag snatching, wage fiddling, cap breaking etc. What's the game coming to? Nothing - a lot cleaner, less Sarries style fiddling (one hopes) :smt015 and if all we have to moan about is that 7s incident.......... Whataboutery is never a convin...

Re: 7s ethics?

I think everyone is getting their knickers in a twist. It's not a million miles away from Italy vs England and the non-engagement at rucks mayhem. It will be a one-off, and a question in Question of Sport in a couple of years. :smt004 I think it was very different from the ruck non-engagement tacti...

Don't know exactly who was to blame for that. But injuries seem to happen on these pitches...very unfortunate
I hate these artificial pitches.. too many injuries!
Not a fan of plastic - but don’t see how it was to blame for that injury

Re: EPCR Semi finals

I get that their good, I just think the commentary team focus too much on Leinster. And BoD’s “touloose” is hilarious! But when they are playing all the rugby what else are the commentators supposed to do Leinster have been fantastic to be fair. Toulouse just can't match the intensity. No idea how ...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

I’m not sure how long I can watch this. Sexton moaning already and the Leinster love in in the commentary box is nauseating ! The "Leinster love" is, I think, entirely justified. They are merely praising what is, to this moment an exceptional performance. D Agreed - I’ve no natural affini...

Re: EPCR Semi finals

The speed the game is being played at is amazing. Second half scrum dominance by Toulouse could be critical. Toulouse need to turn that scrum dominance into points quickly - once their first choice front row come off that advantage will disappear, as it did against Munster. Meanwhile, the Leinster ...

Just turned it off for that very reason.
Shame - you’re missing some fabulous rugby! Maybe switch back on and turn the sound down? A win-win😏

Re: EPCR Semi finals

Apart from the fortuitous breakaway try, Leinster’s first quarter has been pretty much like last week’s. I guess that puts Tigers on par with Toulouse?!

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

I wasn’t suggesting SB is planning on throwing the Wasps game! I was simply pointing out that if we went into the final round with a guaranteed home play off, his overriding priority would be on squad preparation for the week ahead. I’d like to think we have the strength in depth to beat Wasps witho...

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

I think we need to target the win here and secure top spot.. would rather get that sorted and rest players the following week against Wasps knowing we have secured top spot. We don't rest players at home. Want the undefeated league season at home. Ideally Leinster will be the only blot on our home ...
