So, no Sexton. Beginning of the end in green as well? He should go out on his own terms and retire this season. It's going to be 2012/2013 ROG all over again if he goes on and we need him to make the decision for us. And I say that as one of his biggest supporters. He's not going to drop himself. T...

Re: La Rochelle v Leinster

Good half Leinster forwards particularly Ryan need to be careful going on their own. La Rochelle very good at breakdown Ryan had one really bad decision to pick and go himself. Seemed like he lost where McGrath was and was over eager to keep the ball moving. Toner never had a chance on the clear out.
