As this is going to be the last time for a few years that Ireland play Saracens.. this match is going to be epic.

There’s 20 points for the intermediate sprint (one of the early laps of the Champs) as well as the finish, so 70 total.

Nothing like gameday as the perfect laxative.
I’d average 2 or 3 the morning of a game if I’m playing.
Probably the same if its a 6N game against England, Wales or France, or a game against NZ.

Interesting idea.
I wonder what the breakeven number of supporters is when tickets, pints and burgers are all factored in?
I don’t think we’ll see more than 5k allowed into stadia before Xmas which is surely too small a number to make money from?

Great article. Guys like him and Simon Geoghegan were unlucky to play at a time when Ireland was so far behind everyone.

Not done yet.

Bennett is about to win the green jersey at the Tour De France.

It's a jersey for the points competition and is there mainly for the sprinters.

The yellow jersey is the overall winner but that's the winner who completes the tour in the shortest time.

As Sam can't climb steep mountains that well, he was never in with a shout here and is well down in general classifications. He's 5 hours behind the yellow jersey Roglic

Still though green jersey is 2nd in ranking to the yellow so massive achievement........provided he doesn't have a mechanical on Sunday.

He's on 319 points and Sagan in second place is on 264 currently in the points competition
Fúck that

I remember when Charlie won it properly
We dont produce cyclists like Roche these days who can climb and time trial for yellow jersey

I hadn't even considered this with covid. With dressing rooms closed how am I going to take my two pre match dumps 20 mins before kick off?

Despite a VERY bad hangover my pre match poo has been firm and arrived with purpose. I think we can all agree that means only one thing for Leinster

Big big game for Larmour, Sarries back line is not what it was last year. They are going to box kick/kick for position/garryowen the shit out of the ball I would think. If Larmour can field most of them well it'll give Leinster a big edge.

I think a lot of hormones start in the stomach/gut so it makes sense based on that fact I'm not sure is real.

Glad there's no fake crowd noise.
