Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Almost 400 new cases. And 0 deaths - that one is quite important eh Today's deaths are not related to today's new cases, though, they're completely unrelated. See how deaths are in 2 weeks, and then make your statement on whether it was worth getting worried about the number of cases. * Obviously, ...

Porter is absolutely fine, he's been better than Furlong. It was the LH side where Leinster struggled yesterday.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Knee jerk team, with Leinster bias. Killer Kelleher Porter Hendie Ryan CJ VDF Doris Cooney Byrne? :uhoh: Larmour Ali Ringrose Lowe Conway Herring McGrath? EOS? Furlong Baird Connors JGP Frawley? (Fück knows, anyone) Keenan Dropped Healy not because he's been dirt, but age is catching up. Ditto Keet.

JGP is criminally underrated. It's inexplicable He's not perfect, but he's been better than McGrath this year. Also feel ROL is underrated.

I honestly dont know sometimes with modern pros though. . Any metro player could see it. All they needed was one penalty and we consistently played in an area where one slip was goodnight.

Maybe a few caps over the next year or so, but he'll be out of the picture as they build to 2023. Checked his Leinster stats and he played 15, 20, 13 game...

Muldoon is down at 327. Dev might push through to 300 but not going to get close to that. Dev ain't getting 300. That would require another 3(?) seasons of playing most of the games.

Fardy is a good call. He looks tired and sluggish currently. This is a team designed to counteract Sarries power and should go some way to doing that.
