    Clever from Matt Scott with a head like a pint of Guinness trying to destruct the lads.

    Lovely endeavour from Leinster.

    Bit of Leinstertainment going on here.

    Can someone explain to me why, if the exact same act by a player, which dependent on the breeze, gravity and perhaps the dimension of the player himself, results in that man landing on his head/neck or shoulder/arm with just a few cms in it, that that outcome rather than the act determines the colour of the card?

    Yer lad lifted him from the lower legs straight up through the horizontal and flung him away, with no effort to check his landing. If thats not a Red, then all other player welfare efforts we hear coming down the track are boooolshyte.

    Set piece couldn't be going any better.

    Delighted for Cronin. Still don't know what to make of his post Italian treatment but won't do his headspace any harm bagging yet another try.

    Reid staying off, should have been a red for sure.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,200 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Reid is staying off. CoB on permanently.

    Front five really confounding expectations. Ed Byrne having a great start against WP Nel; his stock keeps going up.

    Barry Daly is so, so handsome.

    I hate him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    McGrath has heavy strapping but looks to be moving really well.

    The Mrs just said the same, also “he doesn’t look like a Barry Daly”

    It would never have occurred to me that Barry Daly was handsome. My misses asked me who Josh Van der Flier was, she never asks who players are so I took that as sufficient to put him on my death list.

    I still want to cuddle with Scott Fardy. Platonic cuddling.

    Leinster have defended very well.

    Tomane's tackling has been rather impressive.

    Has absolutely smashed some forwards.

    That's a bit if a harsh high tackle against Kearney. Edinburgh are going to be raging if they come away empty handed here.

    It just shows how well coached the players are. Our defensive structures carry across regardless of who is on the lineup, the level of organisation and trust in the system as well as the ability to execute it even when we have 3rd string players out there is amazing.

    Who missed the tackle on Mata there?


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,200 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Josh Murphy is winning that turnover of Cronin hadn't come in at the side.

    Ah, we stopped the try so it didn't mata in the end.










    :pac:

    Josh Murphy is going really well in the row imo.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,366 ✭✭✭yerrahbah


    Ah good defense, shame couldn't hold out

    Poor from Bent.

    No idea what he was trying to do there, looked like he just tried to bounce off the carrier.

    On the Reid clear out, felt that it was kind of a combination of the 2 closeouts that lead to it so was unlucky. HOWEVER, to say he landed on his shoulder first was a bit rich given his head whipped into the ground a split second after.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,200 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Excellent steal from Deegan.

    Tomane is playing very well so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,366 ✭✭✭yerrahbah


    Great work at the breakdown


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,200 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Cronin, apart from the try, is having a stinker.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    Pyrgos bought that one a bit.

    Very impressed with Deegan, again.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,200 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Ah, Luke.

    We'd a really cleared the immediate danger of an attacking lineout


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,141 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Graham offside at that kick off before gathering it.

    What a cluster****. Great from Deegan and terrible from McGrath.
