    Sorry, just saw results.

    Terenure the team to beat.

    Con going about their business quite always.

    Lansdowne struggling.

    Tarf probably didn't take fixture seriously yesterday.

    YM.. Hot and cold.

    Shannon building but need points.

    Trinity slowing a touch it seems but still going to be in the mix.

    UCD will be bottom half.

    Hinch good start but hard to see them in top 4.

    Garryowen will need miracle

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,662 ✭✭✭ Lost Ormond

    Terenure do seem to be doing well. Will IRFU clamp down on them about players getting IPADs for man of match like they did on Ballina giving player use of car a few seasons ago???

    Lansdowne are struggling but should be fine as Garryowen are worse...

    Buccs going well in 1B. Would be good to have connacht side in 1A.

    Queens, Blackrock teams to beat in 2A. Cashel next best. Bohs look likely to be dropping to 2B unless something big changes soon

    Greystones 6 clear of Corinthians in 2B. Enniscorthy and wegians well adrift at bottom

    Instonians 7 clear of Tullamore. bottom 2 are Ballina on 1 point and Well on 5. next sides are a bunch on 12/13.

    The ipads

    UCD will be worse than Lansdowne also and someone else will drop back to bottom half... Hinch or cookies. An obvious top 4 of con, Trinity, tarf and nure forming. Hinch/cookies... Then bottom 4 of shannon lansdowne garryowen and ucd. I think they'll get away with it as they are sponsored and im curious to know what happens if they lose and the player of the match is from visitors?? Is it always gonna be given to their own. Connacht badly need a 1a team.. Buccs dropped quick last time.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,662 ✭✭✭ Lost Ormond

    That its sponsored should be irrelevant. I know a car is different but Ballina got 2 points deducted and 1000 fine for player having use of sponsored car a few years back...

  • Registered Users Posts: 239 ✭✭ luke9311

    lansdowne struggling but with abit of luck hopefully we get going again, kinda hard to see us struggling for relegation tbh i think mid way/bottom half be where we end up simular to i think it was 2015/2016 season year after we won the league we had a simular season but did just enough to stay up mathematically. up to now i always thought tarf were the team to beat but second guessing now after the weekend but goes to show u anybody or their day is capable of beating one of the big teams/favourites if things go there way.

  • Registered Users Posts: 239 ✭✭ luke9311

    Id say shannon are kicking themselves tbh... i saw the game on the live stream while in work i think it was dineen? one of their players made a break during the game andif he passed to his teammate he would have been in for a try but didnt and set up a ruck but didnt score a try off it later one and the game ended up with a 1 score game. so yeah in a way could have should have one if you look at it like that

  • Registered Users Posts: 239 ✭✭ luke9311

    anyone at the cookies tarf game?

    i seen it in this thread a while back saying stevie crosbie is in tarf now but didnt know if it was rumouirs or certain tbh...

    I seen tarf put up their teamsheet before the game on twitter and he was on the bench.... was it the same stevie im thinking of that played that day that used to be in old belvo or just another player with the same name? Thanks

    The Bateman Cup was confirmed during the week.

    Jan 7th is Buccs V Queens in Dubarry

    Jan 14th is Terenure V Young Munster in Lakelands (Double up of the AIL Fixture)

    Final is February 4th venue TBD

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,662 ✭✭✭ Lost Ormond

    Saw that. Nure Cookies doubling up no surprise..

    Would be good to see the final in a provincial stadium if it cant be in Aviva like a senior national club final should be.

  • Registered Users Posts: 543 ✭✭✭ Chico Flores

    Great win v Clontarf, fantastic crowd there and seriously tough rugby.

    Being able to win such a physical game without Jordan Coughlan a big help too for the confidence.

  • Registered Users Posts: 239 ✭✭ luke9311

    hes over in dubai on a tanning top up i think 🤣

  • Registered Users Posts: 54 ✭✭ Hey_Ho_Lets_Go_3

    Henry McErlean starting at 10 for Terenure tomorrow

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,662 ✭✭✭ Lost Ormond


    Wouldbe nice to see these totals and lists for the other divisions and if the lists for previous seasons could go up on the site..

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,739 ✭✭✭ Fresh to Death

    Seems to be a really talented footballer. Heard very positive things on him while training with Leinster in recent weeks.
