Leinster v Munster Build Up Thread

    How we've gotten to the Tuesday before an interpro derby between Ireland's two best teams without at least a couple of infractions is beyond me.

    To kick the drama up a notch and move us away from the "is Tommy O'Brien a wing, a centre or a duck" debate we shall instead discuss the upcoming Leinster v Munster clash here.

    I spoke to three of my mates in advance of the game and they had this to say:

    Pretty provocative stuff.

    I spoke with Leo Cullen there on the way in this morning and he said he was confident of the win thanks to the IRFU's continued (and completely intentional) interference in the Munster coaching setup.

    I saw that Tadgh Byrne is joining Leinster's southern branch with the rest of his former team mates next season. He will be delighted to hear that Donnchach Ryan is also returning after having a serious falling out with Ronan O'Gara.

    Apparently Ryan said he thought Sexton was a better overall player and it didn't go down too well.

    Who do you guys think was better?

    Personally I think next seasons clash will probably be closer. Once a few of Munster promising young players like Hart, Beirne and Conor Oliver have supplemented the in form Keatley and Conway.

    Then it become the true Leinster A v Leinster B training match it was always meant to be.

    All I want to know is, what asshole decided to put in on at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon?!

    Surely a Saturday evening kickoff would have been better for TV audiences and beer consumption.

    I think having Leinster play against their development side the week before Europe is far smarter than Connact or Ulster. Let's us see how the depth is getting on without having to touch wildlings or people from the west.

    That's a good point Errlloyd. Thank you.

    Also I should have added this to the original post but last seasons results:

    Leinster V Munster
    25 : 14
    Munster V Leinster development training and underage Squad
    29 : 17

    2/10 Munster players on average come from outside the 12 counties.

    I'd go so far as to say the entire Munster panel have been in Leinster before.

    OOooh I've got one. How about, if Munster lose you have to become a Leinster season ticket holder.

    I bet you'd hate that.

    Look, I'll just say it. Not all Leinster fans are from Dublin. Thanks.

    We've peaked.

    In a thread that will have tons of shítposting, this fella has stuck the flag in early.

    In 2011 I had the choice of taking up work in Dublin or Slough. I chose Slough. That should tell you everything you need to know.

    There's a disgusting number of them. It's really very disturbing.

    There's a great podcast called Hidden Filth which goes into great depth about the little lads scurrying down over the liffey once a week. You can listen to it here: http://bit.ly/2xYLocX

    Can see Keatley showing Sexton who's the class 10 on this island at the moment, will give Joe some serious food for thought in the upcoming 6 nations.... Keats and Murray for Ireland... You know it makes sense!

    The only chance you'll ever see a Leinster jersey in a sports direct is when you see those crappy knocked off versions where they've miss-spelled it Everton.

    You never know! Keatley could put in a serious shift on Saturday alright. Will no doubt lead to some mixed emotions for Leinster fans. We will want to cheer him being that he is from Leinster, but also jeer him as he plays for the opposition.

    Maybe we could, sarcastically cheer him...?

    What could go wrong!

    If Tony Ward had his way, Keatley would get the nod, based solely on how little Johnny smiles during matches.

    Its true, there are Leinster fans from outside Dublin - north or south...!
