Nope Sarries wouldn't have dropped all the box kicks. Love seeing all of Sewa and Jumpers salty tears, how many trophies is that since Munsters last one.

A decent half time lead would have made a huge difference to how the second half played out. That Saracens team are monsters so still would have been tough but Leinster would have had a realistic chance.

For clarity, I never said the NEXT lions 10, I said a Lions 10, and he will be.

Posted one thing about Kearney’s yellow and then said Leinster are definitely good enough to beat Sarries?

This current Leinster team is better, we don't need to keep comparing them to a team from 10+ years ago every time they stick it up the jumper.
It's a comment about the style of rugby played at the end. It was pick-and-goes with a man on each shoulder to seal the ruck. Literally from the playbook of that team.
Yeah, no one ever stuck it up the jumper with a few minutes left, before Munster pioneered that ground breaking innovation
No one ever had loyal fans either.

Disappointing experience. Glasgow fans heckling Leinster players as they warm up, swearing at ref over every decision, booing the kicker - terrible rugby etiquette. Venue didn’t take card payments. After match surrounding area full of sectarian football fans. Bit shit Pro14...

I have to say, some of the responses to the Glasgow warriors tweets by Glasgow ‘fans’ are pretty far removed from rugby values

That’s Glasgow for you. Parkhead wasn’t set up to accommodate a rugby audience, pretty shit tbh. Cracking stadium but the infrastructure isn’t there to support any sport that isn’t football.

Glasgow fans refus to accept these a shitty element in their support. They’re all as white as the driven snow.

So, Leinster squeezed the life out of Glasgow, and despite Owens best efforts won fairly comfortably in the end.

Hard luck Glasgow. You need some beef to be competitive at the tippy top end. Like Munster, just not quite there.


Anyhoo, another year, more silverware for Leinster.

Great game, great atmosphere, great occasion. Leinster just about deserved it. That was a red all day. Nige loves the irish.

I reckon irish rugby will have alot of catching up to do over the next couple of years. Fixated on kicking and one out rugby. We peaked over the last couple of years. World cup will be another quarter final failure.

Magnificent, especially when the next post was by someone that was there, and we all know how much you value being there rather than just watching on tv.

Since Glasgow fans thought he was pro Leinster and you think he was pro Glasgow perhaps Nigel just did a good job?

There is always some huge pricks shiteing on about how threatened they felt and how they could have died. Usually Munster fans yet when I went to Thomond I had to leave because of an old women saying rude words in front of my boy. Frightful.
Friend at it agrees with you by the way. I do know there were online threats that lads would turn up after Leo's shit joke. Maybe a few stragglers did

This sanctimonious bullshit from some Irish supporters does my head in though. A few boos at a kicker after a debatable penalty and an age to take the kick is the death of rugby as we know it. But I’m the 2 biggest games of the year a bit of foul play takes out our best player and removes him from the pitch, well that’s just rugby, innit.

I’m not saying Hogg was targeted in those games by the way, but the facts are our best player had to leave the pitch in both. A bit of f**king perspective would be good.

Kearney was lucky not to see red, I thought, for the way Hogg landed on his head.

Glasgow will feel they lost that with the Hogg charge down the difference, but Leinster deserved the win imo. Suffocated Glasgow second half. OK, they were dull dull dull in getting there but it was very effective.

"A few boos" ah c'mon Slick. There was a lot more than that. Not that I particularly have an issue with it but it was very noticeable over the TV.
Not that it was any worse than you'd see in a French T14 game though

A red because because yellow is not working, these in the air stupid tackles are still happening.
Dull? I thought Leinster made a lot of breaks from deep, but just couldn't find each other or panicked.

Speak for yourself. In some cases, I'm actually booing the minis, depending on which club it is.

Will need to watch the game back. Handling was a mare for both teams yesterday, the thick rain made things very difficult but it's to Leinsters credit that they had the game to play to the conditions. Dull x 3 is harsh but not far off, if that were Glasgow sticking it up the jumper to close the game out I'd certainly take it!

My reaction was red, but to be perfectly honest I’ve no idea where we are with it at the moment. A year ago it was unquestionably red, absolutely no doubt, but they seem to have slackened off recently. It’s a bit of a shit show.
