    Frawley doesn't even have a picture for the team line up graphic.

    Eir sport had no image of Jimmy O'Brien at 15 so just used Seanie again.

    Gonna say Edinburgh win. They have playoff qualification on their minds whilst Leinster's selection is geared towards getting players for for next week.

    I'm inclined to agree with you - but that Leinster team is just about capable of beating Edinburgh and I'd like to see the provinces step up after Ireland disappointment.

    Last weeks capitulation should be a fire in the belly for all 4 teams this weekend.

    There was a try on if Bent didn't have crap hands.

    I could have sworn there was an Edinburgh hand in there.

    Ferocious start - nice to see an Irish team rucking aggressively.

    Barclay is blowing hard already.

    Leinster have played some excellent rugby in this opening 5 minutes.

    Need to get points from this scrum though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Lol, Whitehouse shouted “Edinburgh back” at Watson who’s stood there, doesn’t move, makes the tackle on the line and gets “ good” from Whitehouse.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,219 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Cue Tomane bashing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Definite penalty but I would disagree that he knew what he was doing. He was just scrambling to get back into the defensive line.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,219 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Was Reid dump tackled there?


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    That's a red card letter of law.

    Second man involvement might save him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,219 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Lifted above the horizontal, let go in the air and landed on the side of his head.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Locked like a throw but there’s no care. Yellow.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,027 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Noel Reid absolutely flung like a rag doll into the air there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,134 ✭✭✭✭ Larbre34


    Red all day.

    I was about to say Reid was milking that but actually he was dropped on his head. Yellow coming up, quite possibly red.


  • Registered Users Posts: 245 ✭✭ thegreycity


    Lands on his shoulder and head, I'd call it a red.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,163 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    Red card all day long


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    What was the TJ doing, he didn’t react at all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,225 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Tomane is a bit of a brute. Tackling props and winning gainline in defence. Looks fit, aware and plenty of power on display.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    They were looking for an out there. His shoulder made contact but his head bounced off the deck.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,027 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    This is a perfect example of why the trial for the in-game citing commissioner is being brought in. By the rules that's a red.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,219 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Is that not a deliberate knock on?


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,027 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    One hand, wasn't close to controlling that for an intercept.....
