With the Top 5/6 so evenly poised, I think this year RWC winner will come down to having the best S&C team (and the luckiest). Can't wait for it, should be a cracker.

So often success for a team comes down to luck with injuries. If you look at our two Slams in the professional era there were very few, or Wales' run this season (their luck is starting to run out now). New Zealand have generally been very good at making their top players available for the big occasion. Which makes the '11 victory all the more remarkable with the injury crisis at 10 and McCaw basically playing on one leg.


could and probably am completely wrong but didn't Wales start off this season with a bunch of injuries which made it all the more impressive ? agree though, avoiding injuries either through luck and or s&c is huge,,,,as noted VDF now probably our most important player


Probably makes Gatland the best SH coach and currently the best coach in Europe.
He knows the Welsh psyche.
Didn't he say his experience in Ireland and with the Lions was that the Irish were questioning and adding and the Welsh guys would just want to run through walls for Welsh rugby

If it is the Ligaments in his ankle, I remember doing mine when in college playing soccer, it was extremely sore but I was back playing 6 weeks later. He will have a hell of alot better medical care than I had.

I did ligaments in my ankle and missed 8 months of rugby. It was a bad tear though and there was some bone bruising as well which probably prolonged the whole thing.


LC is an international athlete though, so probably a fairer comparison with Joey.


Army you are like a little puppy always looking for attention, very cute. We can't all be Armchair superstars like yourself who has never played any rugby :thumbup:

On Joey Carbery...
I passed him in Dundrum last year.. he looked like a lean athlete who needed to hit the weights to play pro football.

He’s listed as 86kg, I’d say that’s after a six course meal, soaking wet in toe capped boots.
Quality player but not really surprised he’s getting injured as rugby has veered more towards his line collisions.

Hopefully he will be back soon to tear defenses apart.

The tries on Saturday scored by Carbery (ex-Leinster, assist by ex-Ulster), Conway (ex-Leinster), Murphy (ditto) got me wondering about what's the best team we could field made up of players who have switched province...

Struggling in the backrow and need a better winger/fullback but anyway:


J McGrath, S Cronin, M Mooradze, T Beirne, U Dillane, R Copeland*, N Timoney, J Murphy
J Cooney, J Carbery, M Healy, C Farrell, R Henshaw, C Kelleher, A Conway



* Copeland has dropped down to the AIL, hasn't he?

Boyle at 8 with Jordi at 7, Timoney at 6?





Kelleher is coming back to Leinster. Niyi at 14.


Niyi or Matt Healy didn't switch province. They had no attachment to Leinster when signed by Connacht.

Fair call. :thumbup:

That combo is the rugby equivalent of that feeling.

I heard Joey on an Off the Ball interview about 1-2 months back, he mentioned his Body Fat % was in or around 13% and that was about right for him. I would have thought that was very high for someone of his build playing top flight rugby

We stayed in the same hotel as the team for the Lyon NTHCSBH SF a couple of years ago, and Joey Carbery is neither skinny nor fat, he has a large, muscular, athletic frame and is about 6'1", or 2" tall. You notice when he's in the same lift as you!

Yeah by normal person standards 13% is not at all high, but I would have thought international backs are sub 10 for the most part

The fact that every fitness buff or bodybuilder lies about their bodyfat, people don't really know what 13% bodyfat looks like... that is even before we get into how it is measured...

Sub 10 is fairly lean. Have to diet quite hard to get to it and be very strict. Throw the massive workload of a pro rugby player on top of that and some guys will find it hard to maintain their performance levels while being super lean.
Some guys clearly do manage it, but not everyone.

The Australia-NZ one is worth a watch. The Ireland one, not so much.

Hubert Costello (Corinthians RFC) - ireland u18
Eoin DeBuitlear (Corinthians RFC) - ireland u18

Conor O’Shaughnessy (Galwegians RFC)

Cian Treacy (Ballinasloe RFC)

Good to see Connacht have kept the high profile GAA players involved at U19 level. (Jennings, Kilcommins, O McCormack) Could easily see them winning the interpros given talent in squad.

don't know anything about u18 squad, I wonder if they lost anyone due to Galway minor footballers and hurlers making their AI finals.

I thought sub 10 body fat was bordering on dangerously unhealthy? Even for an athlete. No?

Getting close. Something like 3-5% is bordering on minimal viable BF levels for everything to function properly. Organs, hormones, nervous system etc.

Bodybuilders on stage get themselves down to somewhere around 4-8%, I think, possibly lower, and that's something that they time for a very short period. It's unhealthy and impractical to maintain. Female BBers (who have a much higher baseline for viable BF%) suffer interrupted menstruation etc. Hormone levels are all over the shop, male or female. Energy levels can be very low.

You could probably be an athlete at 8-10% and maintain reasonable performance, certainly some could. Everyone's different. A professional athlete playing a contact sport is a different matter, though. Rugby players have a very high base aerobic requirement, as well as repeated explosive efforts, recovery from impacts, etc. Doing all that on impractically low BF% isn't sustainable.

One thing is that Joey isn't as ridiculously muscular as someone like Healy. So even if the two of them had similar BF%, the guy with the bigger muscles showing through the fat will look more cut up.

Not particularly. You'd image though given the hits that they ship that rugby players would be encouraged to remain at a comfortable body fat level. Low body fat also reduces energy and strength.

I'm missing 6, 7, 8, 17, 27, 28 & 29
Goal is to identify the rugby world cup players names from the emojis

Body fat has a role to play in protecting the internal organs, or so I tell myself anyway.

What kind of team do people think we'll see against England? Probably a stronger lineup. Maybe Furlong, Hendo, Ryan, Conan in the pack. I'd love to see good mates Cooney & Carty start at 9 & 10. We'll see if it happens. Maybe Addison at fullback with the first choice wingers either side of him? Any other thoughts?

What kind of team do people think we'll see against England? Probably a stronger lineup. Maybe Furlong, Hendo, Ryan, Conan in the pack. I'd love to see good mates Cooney & Carty start at 9 & 10. We'll see if it happens. Maybe Addison at fullback with the first choice wingers either side of him? Any other thoughts?


I thought Addison was injured?
