    Because I clearly have too much time on my hands in work...

    100 Caps for Conan tonight, and less than the normal Byrne quotient for Leinster tonight.

    I wonder where the whinging about Irish officials during Irish games will be during this match.

    [edit] And someone already has a match thread up. Well, at least I got paid to do this...

    Serious amount of procrastination going on, it is Friday after all.

    Fairbrother is some unit, like a square with legs


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,631 ✭✭✭ crisco10


    2 penalties and a knock on. Josh Murphy had had better starts to a game.

    Good run. Pity about the handling mistakes. Pitch looks to be worse than usual!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,035 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Not sure how that's deemed as kicked under pressure but Ross got a bit lucky there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,035 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    They really need to pull the trigger and get the pitch replaced, they keep kicking it down the line but it's woeful.

    Tongue in cheek I think because they've been saying they're putting in a plastic pitch for the last couple of years


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,261 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Very smart from Kearney to let that bounce and go down.

    Yeah, seemed very home town

    Between the state of the pitch and the tiny in goal area, that's a ridiculous venue

    Is there any excuse these days for a supposedly professional team to have such a crap pitch?

    Levels the playing field?

    Too many penalties this early


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,230 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    That was no penalty against Moloney.

    Excellent offload in contact from Penney too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,585 ✭✭✭ degsie


    Whitehouse should be wearing No 16 Dragons

    Ah it definitely was Venjur he rolled back across the ruck into the 9 instead of trying to roll out, it always gets called

    Great clearance by davies

    I don’t like complaining about the ref but Whitehouse has let Dragons off a few times already, including a clear forward pass followed by a clear knock on within a phase or two of eachother.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,035 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    There must be some wind, Dragons are getting serious miles out of their clearance kicks
