I may have been hugely premature (and certainly guilty of not having watched the , ehhh, gripping, highlights reel to its conclusion. I confess I got bored to tears after the first two and a half minutes of trundling).

In my defence, at my age, I'm just grateful to be ejaculating at all.

Not that grunt in the row would be anything to be sniffed at for us tbh.
Yeah, I skipped through bits of it when that reel was posted up. Seems perfectly competent and a decent slab of beef for the tight work, if not exactly dynamic.

In the new world of safe spaces and bans on opinions that people don't agree with Leinster fans need their thread for both the group think and the circle jerk.

Your incessant hounding of Statto for expressing opinions on why he thinks Schmidt has selected certain players over others, whilst not actually saying he agrees with it himself, has seen him develop a need for a safe space to carry out his thought experiments. :(

Tim if I recall looked more powerfully built and had a bigger chin.
Eh...
Horan is flipping tiny, way shorter than the other two.
There is no way he's the height wiki says he is.
Horan is a shortarse, but I wouldn't be surprised if he weighed as much as Ringrose, who must be half a foot taller and gangly.


Statto has a dozen kids or so, so for him a safe space is any time he can lock the door to take a shit.

Ringrose has posted a few holiday snaps on Instagram( so Duff tells me) and he looks solid enough, could do with a bit more bulking but he's not far off being the size he needs to be.


And his missus would get it :thumbup: right up the bumhole

It certainly is the master of the ballsed up metaphor himself.
But it looks like the 20 year reunion of a 90's boyband.

He looked stockier, perhaps I can't remember back to his earlier starts.

You forgot Bman, the one that left just before we get huge because he wants to be taken as a serious artist.

Do we wear matching but different coloured outfits or do we show our own style?
