    Highlight of the game was Lowe stealing ToH's soul.

    You could see the exact moment when he realised he was never getting capped for Ireland again.

    This happens everywhere, people are tinted when it comes to their own team and players. I see and hear it in the RDS all the time when everyone shouts about something and then on the replay it turns out the pass was okay or the tackle wasn't late and a few half wits keep complaining despite what they’ve just seen.

    I don't mind marginal calls being called for by the crowd, even when they're wrong, that's the point of home advantage.

    But on Saturday, it was horrendous. One d*** with a stupid haircut at the end of College Road end of Clan Terrace was at it the entire game and actually said " He was holding his leg" about the VdF incident.

    Shut up quick enough with all the filthy looks the rest of Connacht fans gave him for that one.

    Well, he was technically correct ... :P:P:P

    Tbh, I thought the lack of a reaction from the crowd regarding the card was fairly telling. Most of the clan saw it realtime. As soon as the replay was shown there was no complaints, not even the usual ooooohhhs and aahhhhs, just unnatural silence that anyone on any team could have done something so deliberately scummy

    The bias thing is everywhere. We regularly hear “off his feet” on the terrace in the RDS at pretty much every ruck. Almost always from the same person. It’s become a running joke. It’s onky bad if there’s enough of it to force others to move elsewhere. People go to the games to enjoy it. The odd eejit is fine, but if there’s too much it messes up everyone else’s experience. And that’s just not fair.

    Yeah it's usually just the big games where the crazies come out.

    At the 47-10 game last year some tool moved into the college road terrace in the second half and immediately got on the nerves of everyone near him sound crap at the ref, the players warming up, even Eddie. Thought he was funny and kept expecting people to laugh along with him.

    You could actually visibly see space around the man and his unfortunate friend by the end.

    I’m calling b.s. on that, that game never happened, I’ve checked my memory and it can’t be found.

    Thought Tomane linked up well with Ringrose in defence. He certainly helped in keeping Aki relatively quiet. This was quite comfortably his best game for Leinster.

    Well the idiot I'm thinking of on Saturday was a guy calling Lacey racist for not giving Niyi a penalty. He roared it a few times and I only wished I was close enough to let him know it wasn't on.

    There are always arseholes who think the crowd have paid to listen to their comedy.

    I did love the ribbing Healy was getting, and it looked like he was playing up to it as well.

    Two weeks in a row I've heard what must be the same lad in the clan stand have a near nervous breakdown over people not knowing what offside is and on both occasions I've nearly burst into tears laughing. Small things like that make me love going to live sport.

    Was he close to players entrance on Saturday? - I heard him too - hard not too - fine pair of lungs on him

    Pretty petty and low comment. I hope he proves you wrong........ and I think he will too!

    There is bias everywhere but what I like about the RDS is that there are no stupid haircuts
