Leinster would need to shape up here. Easy try for Exeter.

Why have Leinster stopped using the pre-binding three man latch? Worked so well...

Exeter have a big pack but very sluggish. Leinster beginning to make them work. VDF is a man possessed.

Rum emailed World Rugby and the refs have now clamped down on it.

First point of contact looked like Byrne's chin.

JVDF brilliant.
There should have been a yellow.
Great match so far.

Attempts to piece his family tree together have failed apparently. His dad’s family hail from the Caribbean.

In my view only an absolute psychopath would consider eating such a glorious animal as a dog, whether baited into position or bred to be eaten.

Unless you're Korean of course, in which case it is as much the accepted norm there as eating beef, pork or poultry is here. :duck:

Why VDF would want to get a dog into him before such an important match though beggers belief. :shock:
The good news out of lock down is that I have got fitter.
The bad news is that my spelling has got wurse.

The Bordeaux R92 game was pretty grim. Poor quality compared to the games on Saturday.

My brother-in-law is married to a S Korean and I have to correct you on that one. While dog meat is still consumed there (like several other countries including Switzerland), it is far from "the accepted norm" and is in steep decline. They have an Italian greyhound and haven't been tempted to eat him once! There's not much meat on him mind :lol:
