    Getting bold with the crests. I like it...

    I saw D'Onofrio mentioned on Twitter.

    (definitely 100% legal) Stream down for anyone else?

    ... Back working now.

    A lovely finish

    Lovely banana kick from Byrne


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,024 bayern


    good kick from Harry.

    some lovely touches from Dunne so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,049 ✭✭✭ hold my beer


    Lovely finish by Sheehan a minute ago.


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


    Did Soroka injure himself when tracking that restart?


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


    Some seriously good kicking from Leinsters backs in this game.

    The disadvantage to "totally legal" streams is not being able to rewind. Would love to see whether that last line out was a slow lift or a Sheehan overthrow


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,024 bayern


    great poach from sheehan.


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


    TMO looking at two potential high tackles from Leinster?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,024 bayern


    thats nothing for me.

    he dips into the contact.


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


    If they're looking at mitigation it's that the Zebre player is stooping down into contact and the Leinster guys are also in a low position.

    Don't think red but can see a yellow.

    That just means it's not a red.


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


    Yellow for me but could be a red.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,582 ✭✭✭✭ partyjungle


    Unintentional contact to the head should be a yellow at most. Still discourages the action but doesn't ruin games. Thoughts?


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


    Game being spoiled once again by daft refereeing decisions


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,240 ✭✭✭ sioda


    Fair reffing considering decisions over the past few weeks.

    Ah I know what they are trying to do but that’s a very tough call.

    How does a ref decide if an action is deliberate or not?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,715 ✭✭✭✭ Interested Observer


    This is crazy. It's getting to the point where the only way to avoid getting carded is to not tackle.

    I'm talking deliberate as in a punch to the face


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


    All a player needs to do now is to lower their head going into a tackle to get a card against the opposing team


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 33,065 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pickarooney


    Shoulder on shoulder tackle, penalty only for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,272 ✭✭✭ theVersatile


    Ah here lads - that's probably one of the least controversial yellows I've ever seen.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,199 ✭✭✭ MaybeMaybe


    How many players getting red or yellow cards will it take to change behaviour?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,013 ✭✭✭ irelandrover


    This is crazy. It's getting to the point where the only way to avoid getting carded is to not tackle.

    Just try tackle below the waist.

    A benefit of this is players will have free hands to offload and it will lead to more exciting rugby.
