    Connacht have had plenty of opportunities in the Leinster 22 but keep producing bad errors at the wrong time.



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,823 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Nick McCarthy tackled in the air.

    Leinster penalised for something Connacht were awarded for in the first half



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,932 ✭✭✭randomname2005


    Was 6 green not in the side clearing out Ryan?



  • Registered Users Posts: 24,923 ✭✭✭✭Strumms


    Frank Murphy as per usual, making it up as he goes along..



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,841 ✭✭✭KH25


    Clear out from the side on Ryan. Nothing from Murphy. Standard.

    He was hit right as he planted his feet back down.

    I don't know what game you're watching buddy, the butthurt at every call is embarrassing. Your team has a host of Internationals on the field right now and the biggest budget in the league, you shouldn't need the refs help to beat us.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,932 ✭✭✭randomname2005


    In the air needs to be seen again, but there was a clear hands on the ground before Connacht were awarded a penalty to Boyle I believe for 'holding on' which Leinster were just penalised for doing what Boyle did. No conspiracy, just ref being human

    Considering the help that Connaught are getting it’s unlikely.



  • Registered Users Posts: 17,333 ✭✭✭✭Utopia Parkway


    Weirdly compelling for a game that’s been 7-0 since the 3rd minute.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,419 ✭✭✭✭cson


    *Connacht

    But anyway deal me out of this bluefest.

    Connacht line speed is terrific, but they're getting away with being offside a good deal also.



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,823 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Oliver's hands on the ground to stabilize his weight when affecting that turnover.



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,823 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    God I love Joe McCarthy



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,823 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Rob Russell is not having a good game. Had the same problem as last week where he crabbed across the pitch and ate up space rather than straightening.



  • Registered Users Posts: 24,923 ✭✭✭✭Strumms


    can anyone give you a shout if there are any more typos ? 😎

    penalty was harsh, he touched his back slightly.



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,823 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    God I love VDF.

    Biggest of big game players.



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,862 ✭✭✭✭Larbre34


    Murphy finally running out of let-offs.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,932 ✭✭✭randomname2005


    Harsh penalty for contact in the air.

    Smashing play by porch to make that tackle on JDF

    Ringrose stand out for me. Sheehan and Ryan both excellent also.

    Boyle terrific for Connacht.



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,823 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Would've gone with Ringrose as motm. He was excellent in attack in the first half.

    But VDF us a worthy winner as well.

    VDF and Ringrose were a class apart tonight, the only guys who really looked like test level players. JOB had a tidy game in rubbish conditions. Ross Byrne looked to be carrying a knock but he was ineffectual at best.

    Connacht looked like they were so focused on disrupting Leinster that they forgot to think about what they'd do with the ball once they got it. They did a great job in rush defence, made sh1t of the Leinster lineout, stole a few turnovers and then... nothing.



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,823 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Joe McCarthy has made some mammoth carries since coming on. Such a huge prospect.



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,862 ✭✭✭✭Larbre34


    Leinster will be happy with 4 pts, but a lot of weaknesses to be dealt with.

    It is unacceptable that the lineout continues to misfire. Cullen and MacBryde must grab a hold of it fast.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,640 ✭✭✭Former Former Former


    that is a fitting final play



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,182 ✭✭✭crisco10


    More injuries racking up here for leinster.


    Ryan

    Conan

    And moloney looked uncomfortable at end

    Also missed who frawley came on for.



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,331 ✭✭✭✭dastardly00


    Ah jaysus Jack Carty 🤦



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,937 ✭✭✭Brief_Lives


    Porch or VdF worthy MoM ... good game, for such a low scoring game... immensive leinster defensive, connacht couldn't break them... certain poster on this thread is a massive whingebag...



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,518 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers


    Typical Carthy, the yellow pack finn russell.


    Frank murphy made it a right contest ignoring the offside rule consistently all game long.



  • Registered Users Posts: 732 ✭✭✭phily2002


    Conan looked like he split his eyelid so hopefully should be fine. Ryan looked in pain but fingers crossed it was nothing serious

    Russel I think, but don’t think it was down to injury.
