Re: Rainbow Cup

Not so much about physicality for me but everything looked so frenetic and chaotic.

Can we be confident that the required control and calmness will come with experience?

It must be challenging to kick accurately to the backfield if you can’t see over the defensive line though.

Re: Rainbow Cup

Mission accomplished. No injuries sustained and youngsters given a game. Alby Mathewson can head home any time he likes. Or half a game anyway. Reid probably caught the eye as much as anyone. Alby was the best of the half backs and he might have to ask Jacinda before he can head home. Anyone else s...

Re: Lions 2021

Too early for LRZ IMHO but, equally, he could go over there and score a few.

Re: Ulster in the Challenge Cup

Read that. Always feels like he has to be hard hitting. Tom O'Toole has a lot to work on of course - he'll know himself he isn't even 1st choice for ulster but widely acknowledged as having a lot of potential. Why not encourage the guy than just blast him, when he came through the Academy. Somewhat...

Re: Lions 2021

Indeed. I’ve not seen anything to suggest that Sinckler didn’t get one though. No doubt Gatland is still hoping he doesn’t have to call on him.

Re: Lions 2021

So that’s why they emailed fifty players a couple of weeks ago.

And Youngs said no.

No doubt injuries will propel some of those who missed out into the squad soon enough anyway.

AWJ said he wasn’t consulted regarding selection.

Re: Lions 2021

Well done Hendy. Ryan is better off to sort out his head for next season. Same for Sexton although I don't know why he wants to continue from a health perspective. Bundee is a bolter. I don't think most Leinster fans have any problem with the selection. There will be a lot of attrition and good to ...

I think he’ll want Lawes at 6.

Three number 8s in the squad is a bit strange. Curry could have covered if required.

Every chance that Hendy makes the bench for the first Test.

Re: Lions 2021

Looks like Sinckler is paying the price for getting arrested after the last Test in NZ.......

Re: Rainbow Cup

They’ve got Goggin and Scannell in midfield.

No sign of Joey anywhere.

Re: Lions 2021

Ryan and Ringrose have had very quiet seasons, influenced by availability issues of course. Healy probably has a decent chance. Sutherland has picked up an injury. Genge and Marler weren’t in the email group. Mako, Jones and Healy wouldn’t make a particularly dynamic trio though. I reckon Porter cou...
