Harry Byrne is simply an incredible kicker of the ball from hand - great vision - he’s far ahead of Ross

Leavy was never fast beaut he looks incredibly slow now. Don’t think he’ll be the player he was before the injury

Turner has such a weird body shape.

It's almost unfair playing Ruddock at this level.

JOB has good pace as well, there's been a few times he's threatened to skin the person he's running against.

This is a good match, Blues are putting up a fight at least, I hope they can keep it competitive.

Liking Harry Byrne's range of passing. Ruddock again just having a very efficient game.

Leinster are in full baller-mode.
But when Leavy starts a Loop and Bent does a side-step, you know things are too loose.

Does a backrow need to be fast?

It helps, obviously, but that's a separate issue.

That try at the end was nice.

Another forward one like that please, before we start the balling again.

It should really be a no brainer tbh . It’s annoying now that he wasn’t playing in Twickenham yesterday when you look at the stats for Stander and Dorris . He brings exactly the sort of aggression and physicality we’re missing.

They need explosive power , pace from a standing start to brings force into the contact area . That’s something Leavy had that he’s missing now .
