Absolutely DL, it wouldn't be nice to be obliged to dislike Tommy except when Leinster play foreigners.

Re: Dragons vs Ulster TV Coverage!

Outrageous, Ulster's most important game in 12 years and BBC Ulster say no.

Re: NEW CONTRACT FOR BEAR ?

Cronin has showed in his few outings this season that there is a bit of potential there, and above all else he has the technique to cope at this level. From Ulster's POV it would make a lot more sense to bring in Cronin on half of Young's salary and let Young go than keep Young on the basis of a de...

Re: NEW CONTRACT FOR BEAR ?

Should have mentioned that I expected a zero response to this thread but then a week later M.L'Elephant stumbles upon it.

Re: NEW CONTRACT FOR BEAR ?

M. L'Elephant: a staggering post a week after the fact, however much as I admire your generosity of spirit in not condemning Cronin for being unable to scrummage a brief revisit to the match will show you that he was done up like a kipper in the scrum. The problem is that we have a maximum of 3 mat...

Re: MUNSTER THREAD 2010/11

2 posts on munsterfans later and the whiteknight has been banned from there. apparently they dont agree that poite is having a good game and that going to old langers such as horan and hayes is a good option to try and turn things around.... their mods could learn a trick or 2 from the good father ...

Re: Poll: Should SOB be cited?

Goon - I disagree that it wasn't justified for POC - from memory he knew exactly where the player was and what he was doing when he landed one and has enough experience to know better It looked like SOB may also had a glance over his should before lashing out but the difference here was he was stil...

Re: Poll: Should SOB be cited?

However what really hacked me off was that eejit Barnes congratulating Nyanga for a great piece of play!!! It was a cynical cheating act Mr Barnes and not something to be encouraged you prat I increasingly find Barnes's comments difficult to tolerate. He seemed determined yesterday to say how good ...

Re: Poll: Should SOB be cited?

It was an offence. There will be a citing. A ban will result. It was a step up from the POC incident. SOB was not being held when he struck out. SOB turned and was looking directly at his target when he struck out. No doubt he had been held and that probably for just long enough to keep SOB from th...

Re: Poll: Should SOB be cited?

Hypothetical i know...but if Le Clerc had lashed out at Darce for his wee block...would those saying no citing for SOB be of the same opinion? Yes absolutely, albeit I see a difference between a block and sleekid jersey pulling. You are confusing me with a one-eyed Leinster fan whereas I only toler...

Couldn't agree less. Pearson is an excellent referee. For the record, so is Romain Poite.
Each to their own Snipe but hes gash and blind.

Re: Leinster thread 2010/11

Congratulations to any Leinster fans browsing enemy sites. Very well deserved victory over Toulouse who could only contribute a fluke try & a cheated try. Magnificent controlled performance to come back from the early body blow and picked up a notch when the dear departed Isaac Boss appeared and lif...

Re: Poll: Should SOB be cited?

I know Leinster have plenty of backrow cover but the loss of SOB would be significant: The incident can be found half way down this page on the turnip forum: http://www.munsterfans.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=29172&PN=0&TPN=8 as they say, very similar to what POC did a few months ago. If the tone...

Re: Poll: Should SOB be cited?

No of course not, the barsteward who held him back and ensured Toulouse scored should be however. Cited as a cheat and held up as one. Just the same as Thomas who held back POC only this time with the consequences for SOB's team were potentially greater. Citing a man who has been prevented from poss...

Re: NEW CONTRACT FOR BEAR ?

Think your a bit harsh on Cronin....Apart from a few scrums,i thought he fronted up quite well.We all know he is great in the loose,but i think we need to give Cronin a few more first team matches under his belt before you crucify the bloke. I think he is a good prop for us give him time. M. L'Elep...
