If you actually can't remember how good he was in 11/12 then it's pointless continuing this discussion.

Of course I can remember he was good in 2011 , that's 7 years ago man when he was what 24? What relevance has that got to do with the present..

You seem to have derived from my posts that I somehow think he is a bad player which isn't true at all, I just said he has limitations which he does , he also has many pros

Well I don't know what you derived but you we're straight in with an insult. Have you ever played btw you didn't answer ..

Is there any reason all our home games have been 215pm kickoffs?

You're not very good at following a conversation where you're the only other person in it, are you?

This started when I took issue with your description of his career.

Coming from you? :lol:

Anyway, you still think he peaked in 09? An interesting viewpoint that I'd be surprised many agreed with.

Just watching the pro14 highlight and Beirne seemed to have been everywhere in the Ulster game. It was men v boys for the last try. Our depth in 2nd row is getting real good and Klein becomes an option next November also.

Kleyn is a genuine baby eater, but with no evidence of the stupidity that can sometimes come with that. What this week has shown is that you can never have too much quality in any position because injuries can leave the cupboard very bare very quickly. I think he will come into the squad in place of Roux as soon as he becomes eligible.

Beirne and Kleyn look like an interesting and complementary pairing for Munster.

Disco, I’m not overly pleased with the system myself but it is what it is, and you and I both know that Joe, understandably, won’t hesitate to call Kleyn up if he believes he can use him. As a player I like Kleyn because he has a real edge without being a thug, and gives 100% commitment every game, but I would prefer if we didn’t have to rely on poaches.

Not disputing that at all Lenny. and you're probably right that he will simply displace Roux. That said i hope one of the provinces produces someone or two someones so it isnt necessary

If nothing else it shows that the squad depth is improving. Its not that long ago Billy Holland was capped.

On the ITV commenatry just after Jackson got in the way and Aki knocked on, the main commentator said "Bundi Aki raised in New Zealand, played all his rugby there, became a hero in Connacht when they won the Pro12 and now he's playing for Ireland".....pause and audible sniggering from D'arcy and Williams. He's done something similar before IIRC. Or was that Cotter?

On closer inspection, Biggar tackled Best bound to Leavy. Best chucks him out of the way and drags Leavy forward over the line. It's fine.

That was my impression on the 2nd or 3rd replay. Probably fine, but the kind of thing where some refs would just see Best clearing him out, and whistle.

16 senior appearances(10 leinster & 6 irish) to date for James Ryan in his professional career.

Also appears to have gotten through game at weekend uninjured. :thumbup:

I'm rewatching it with this commentary now. That's a mischaracterisation of what he said and there was no audible sniggering from anybody, just a pause as there often is in commentary.

I've always been a big fan but he's been far from good lately.


So your shit under the highball now if Dan Biggar beats you to one.

I think it might be that he really was shit each time. I’d imagine though that by later tonight he’ll be motm. :lol:

PS His attempted drop goal was absolute muck, both in thought and execution. I thought his immense experience meant he would make good decisions. Some chance.



Why is that chief?

We had the ball kicked back to us in the same spot from the 22. It's an underused option and he has a track record of getting them but then in internet expert land knocking over droppies from 50 metres is a piece of piss.

He's never kicked a drop goal for Ireland and has kicked 3 in his entire career for Leinster - the last one being in 2014

Not going to hop on the Kearney hate - but wasn't a good shout for me. We had been wearing them down - keep doing more of the same. It gave them a breather and while we got the ball back, that was no gimmie as our work on their restarts into us was chronic in 2nd half.

We lost everyone after a score.

Like I said a track record.

He goes for them rarely but if he connects it can go over and worst case you get the ball back.

Think he should have a pop more often actually.

He has gotten one in an Irish jersey. ;)

It wasn't the worst option in the world and no one would have batted an eyelid if it was Sexton but as I said last night, he needed to strike it better to justify it.

As you have pointed out from a system POV I'd be more worried about the restarts putting us back under pressure every time but that doesn't suit the narrative of some after our third win on the bounce with a DP against a Welsh side most on here were actually worried about.

:lol:

I would say thats a fairly loose statment, suppose if any players connects with a drop goal it can go over!!!

Not sure thats a track record when he's scored as many in his career as Rory Scannell has!

He just doesn't strike the ball as well anymore - in that situation I just want us to keep forcing them into tackles. Usually he's not exactly shy about heading for contact and the pack was in front of him.

Thought it was a bad shout.

The A's??

Of course - but Sexton has the luxury of being Sexton. It's certainly not worth getting in a tizz over - but I don't remember him putting up too many Garryowens at all. Order of the day was "make them tackle". That's what he should have done.

Offensively he beat a few defenders. Lovely line to go through from Sexton to set Earls free in lead up to Leavys try. And he is always a big game player.

The two Biggar beat him to in the air were unfortunate, one of them in particular, as that's what he is picked for.

Defensive as last man coming into the line still an issue.

Theres no way he doesn't play for the next two games, and he should. June and November are the chances to try and develop Larmour, Conway or whoever into a realistic propostion for the World Cup

So, Kearney is crap at attacking then ?

And that's the sort of form he's been in for Leinster.

Does one drop goal from 4 years ago constitute a track record now? :lol:

And I described it as a Hail Mary kick in a previous post because it isn’t a pice of piss, and his execution of the kick was so shit that it could have gone anywhere, with a kick back to us far from being a guaranteed outcome.

On closer inspection, Biggar tackled Best bound to Leavy. Best chucks him out of the way and drags Leavy forward over the line. It's fine.


That was my impression on the 2nd or 3rd replay. Probably fine, but the kind of thing where some refs would just see Best clearing him out, and whistle.

He was bound on to him all the time but he could have made it look better by binding more to the rear, MacOwens would have looked at that for 5 mins.

Does one drop goal from 4 years ago constitute a track record now? :lol:

And I described it as a Hail Mary kick in a previous post because it isn’t a pice of piss, and his execution of the kick was so shit that it could have gone anywhere, with a kick back to us far from being a guaranteed outcome.


How many drop-goals has Sexton kicked for Ireland? Didn't see many moaning when his went over :lol:
