  • The task facing Kidney

    The task facing Kidney

    There is a huge problem facing Irish Rugby presently and that is Kidney's inability to maximise the talents of the players at his disposal. We have had the IRFU drum-beaters, Farrelly for example, telling us that provincial success is actually detrimental to Ireland because of the province's 'short termism' or words to that effect. This however flies in the face of past evidence where the where it was widely regarded that Munster and Leinster's success at HEC level, in particular Munster's ability in 'pressure cooker' situations that got them over the finishing line on so many occasions, notably for the long-awaited Grand Slam of 2009. ...

    Spoilt by success, Munster fans need to change

    In late December 1999, I went to a Shannon v Young Munster AIL game at Thomond Park. The ground was full, helped by the Christmas holiday period, but the attendance was to be expected. Large crowds at AIL games in Munster had been common for the best part of a decade, boosted by a continuous stream of AIL success in the province...

    Rabo 12 who needs what?

    With three rounds to go, if the current positions are maintained, the Semi finals would line with Leinster at home to Glasgow and the Ospreys at home to Munster. Ulster are waiting in fifth with Llanelli sixth and Cardiff in seventh. None of the other teams can qualify, indeed Cardiff are only mathematically still involved being eleven points behind Glasgow, the fourth place team. ...

    The remainder of the season?

    We still have a very good chance of placing ourselves in the top four for the league, but how should we approach the last series of games? For me, a possible league win is secondary to having a better squad to really challenge for the HEC next season. ...

  • HEC QF 2012 Munster v Ulster

    HEC QF 2012 Munster v Ulster

    I was thinking about this last night. People need to forget about our saga with injuries. We know that most if not all will be back for Sunday all going well and if someone isn't fit, well then they won't play and we need to move on, dwelling on it is only wrecking our heads. Forget about Ferris too, again if he plays, he plays if he don't he don't. He is one man at the end of the day. Ulster have a massive squad. If a player has to come in for him, they will be up for this. ...

    Six Changes For Munster
    30 March 2012, 11:33 am
    By The Editor

    Not surprisingly, four of six changes to the Munster starting XV, from last weekend, are caused by the return of internationals Keith Earls, Donncha O'Callaghan and Peter O'Mahony and Ronan O'Gara who captains the side in the absence of Paul O'Connell.

    Munster: F Jones; J Murphy, K Earls, L Mafi, S Zebo; R O’Gara capt, T O'Leary; M Horan, D...

    No man's land...

    So another 6 Nations over and where are Ireland in the greater scheme of things? While I have great respect for Declan Kidney he has well and truly been found out. As far as squad development goes we are in terrible shape looking into a dreaded tour of New Zealand this summer... ...

  • Squeaky Bum Time approaches
    by mr chips
    (By Piquet - not my work!)

    That time of the season so beloved of Sir Alex Ferguson is coming into view.

    There will have to be major rule changes next year, given that of all the Premiership teams, only one, Saracens, are not in the bottom half of their Pool.
    Peculiarly enough, of the ten fixtures in Round Four, only three had different results from the previous Round.
    Significant gaps have developed in three of the pools and the first four casualties...

  • Piquet's Half Time Analysis
    by mr chips
    Right, we’re at the Halfway stage both in the Head to Head games and overall.

    In the old days, if you lost your first match, you didn't win the Heineken Cup. Munster put a stop to that in 2006. Then, if you lost your first two matches, you were out. With the change in format to allow three rather than two Pool runners up go through, that went by the wayside two years ago courtesy of Bath.

    Gerry Thornley in the Irish Times had an interesting article last week...
