Re: Declan Kidney – the amazing diminishing rugby coach

let me flip the question then; in 2009 we were unbeaten and won a Grand Slam. In the 2 years since we have lost more games than we have won, won no tournaments, our performances have rarely got above mediocre, and there have been some selection issues which are at least questionable. I'm assuming t...

Enjoy the fairytale cost of the fecking thing Shammy, £20M for security alone. I'd have been happy to take a chance on a bloodbath than for my taxes to go on Mr Plod's overtime.

Re: Top 4 Predictions

A losing BP will do ok. I just hope we don't end up cursing that ball bag TMO decision in Italy. :evil: Of course you are right LastNight & I have only selected your post as it is short but I sincerely hope the team & particularly the management don't go into this match with that attitude. We need ...

Re: NEW CONTRACT FOR BEAR ?

What makes me laugh the most though,is as far as I can fathom there is not one poster on this thread that as any idea about front row play, for none of them have stated that they have played in that position,but suddenly they have become experts. Boot, you can't possibly be as dumb as you like to m...

The FRU wrote:Diack is the next best thing we have seen and has the potential to be as good if not better than Wilson if only he was played at eight more often.
I hope to be proved wrong but I suspect Robbie lacks the bit of "dog" in him that would make him sensational at any level.

Re: Squad for next year

Frankly I don't care if none of our players are selected by Deccie, Robinson, Henry or de Villiers for the RWC. In relation to Irish rugby its about as relevant as Sevens. A waste of time, much as I will watch most of it. I could not agree more. I sort of support Ireland when the Six nations/test m...

Re: MUNSTER THREAD 2010/11

I wonder if the performance against the Ospreys had anything to do with it? Munster were immense last weekend - maybe they would have been better having a rest? Tell you what, we DO NOT want to play munster in the league semi-final - they'll rest their entire side next week and then go full out for...

Re: MUNSTER THREAD 2010/11

Have to say I think that post is unfair and unworthy of you, Jackie. Also, if Munster are poor at bringing young players through, how is it that they beat the Ravens 30 - 3 down there and 28 - 3 here? Anyone who writes Munster off for next season is not thinking clearly, it seems to me. Rocky. Spot...

Re: Poll: Should SOB be cited?

Incident can be viewed HERE Looked like he took two goes at him, first with the elbow, then with the fist. One he might have got away with, the second, I suspect will see him missing some matches, and deservedly so. Shame after what has been such a great season for him to have blighted it thus. Ble...
