Re: Official Munster v Leinster "O'Classico" Match Thread

The lack of importance of the match plays a role - Leinster will win the conference anyway regardless of the result today (no way Leinster are not at least within 7). The only thing the fixture had going for it was a full and loud stadium. The league itself is absolute shite let's not kid ourselves

Did Albon and Norris run out of talent? They're usually higher up than that and their teammates did OK. Norris was fine in Q1 (4th fastest I think) but then had a series of errors in Q2 and failed to register a decent lap. Albon is struggling. I can't stand fat Ted Kravitz's snarky comments. (liste...

Re: Is this the end for rugby?

Rugby has been dying on its arse for the last decade now. It's only going to get worse. I've said it before (looking for some Jeff style validation here) but rugby anywhere near as we know it doesn't have long left. Anyone who disagrees needs to get their head out the sand.
