    That was beautiful. Lovely hands

    Got outta jail there. Great tackle from Kelleher attacking the ball in contact.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,605 ✭✭✭✭Squidgy Black


    Got lucky there. JGP just fell off the tackle completely


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,174 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Frawley cannot be an outhalf if he can't pass in open play with any consistency. That's three poor passes. Maybe the runner got too flat there but he still needs to hit the runner instead of where he wants the runner to be.

    Ah that was a great opportunity......blown.

    Lowe is extremely frustrating sometimes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,174 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Happy enough to go in ahead even if Leinster will be disappointed they didn't score again after the try.

    Leinster have been better but with two missed pens and spilling the ball on the 5m line, Ospreys could well be ahead.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,073 ✭✭✭✭vienne86


    That's dreadful to give that try away just before half time. Dreadful pass.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,174 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Spoke too soon. Another Frawley disaster pass.

    There's a case for hauling him at half time but that would be damaging for him. Keep it tight and Byrne on if there isn't a big improvement.

    Spoke too soon Buer.

    Frawley's had a bit of a mare so far.

    Leinster deserved that. Been poor enough since the 15th minute.

    Unless there's a big change in the second half the unbeaten record is going down the drain.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,967 ✭✭✭Synode


    Frawley has thrown a couple of awful passes


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,073 ✭✭✭✭vienne86


    What on earth is up with Frawley tonight?

    We've been playing into a fairly strong wind, so hopefully we'll do better in the second half. Some awful passes being thrown.

    Conditions mixed with a pack that isn't entirely dominating their opposition. He really needs to clean up the mistakes though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,920 ✭✭✭✭stephen_n


    They need to get Frawley off the pitch, he’s having a mare. His passing has always been a weakness but it’s been ridiculously bad tonight. I know it’s windy, but that’s just not good enough at all.


  • Subscribers Posts: 40,963 ✭✭✭✭sydthebeat


    Leinster not playing the conditions very cleverly.

    Ospreys have been piss poor yet still go in ahead at half time.

    The pressure game with the wind behind them might get us over the line here

    This isn't anything new. He has thrown a lot of passes to ground in the past. It just doesn't get much attention because we're in cruise control usually.

    That's 4 bad passes tonight. Two completely missing the man and going to ground, one behind a man leading to a knock on and the try which was to someone's toes and may as well have been an intercept try.

    I wouldn't say we've been that poorly. Some errors but generally good play. Some great passages that brought us right up near their line before an error. The exit where we tried the short 22 and worked 40m upfield was excellent too.

    Need to sharpen up and tighten up. Frawley and Lowe have cost us possession a half dozen times between them.

    Frawley doing plenty right and making good decisions, just letting too much innacuracy into his game and needs to tidy up before he's subbed.

    Bit of a job on our hands now, Ospreys just need to focus on one half of rugby and they've a big scalp.

    Yeah he really needs to sort out those passing yips or he won’t be around Leinster for long.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,174 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Cynical from Ospreys. Smart buggers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,174 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Would really want COB or Deegan here. TOB has been really good though and is punching way above his weight with ball in hand.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,666 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Really hope we don't rue the decisions to go for the scrum when we win penalties.


  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    Ruddock wanted to keep that in, can't help but feel Deegan would have scored from there. Very hard to stop off the back of the scrum.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,605 ✭✭✭✭Squidgy Black


    Amazed we didn't try pick that once it wheeled

    He's going to go for it this time, gone down Channel one for that reset


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,174 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Gonna end up getting nothing here. Referee will lose patience and give one against us very soon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,174 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Thank f*ck. Referee took a long time to spot that grounding!
