      Saints have been poor.

      Another good call from the ref, despite the TMOs attempts to persuade him to call it forward.

        Common sense being applied again by the ref. Saints try awarded.

          To be fair, Daverage had a pretty good game, scoring a couple of tries. He still has a bit of pace and he never shirks the physical stuff.
          Agree about the midfield and surprised Cullen has not done a bit more tinkering. I see Henshaw as a big, willing, hard-working horse who will never light the game up with great plays. He is playing a role much like McCloskey's at Ulster, but at present McCloskey has more to his game.

            Daverage playing quite well alright. Henshaw pretty ordinary. Was always a better 13/15. Just not got the skills and vision to be a top class 12.

              Dave Kearney played well, has been playing well for a long time. He has plenty of medals for province and country. I’m sorry some international coaches picked him ahead of your local hero’s but that’s not his fault. So why not shut up with the “clever” insults on his name. Lad always tries his best and did well for himself and deserves better than the crap on here.

                Larmours stats are immense over the 2 Saints games 250metres ran, 19 defenders beaten, 6 clean breaks, he’s making a mockery of Kearney’s selection ahead of him for the past 2 seasons.

                  Strange response to me saying he played quite well. Are you feeling ok?

                    Well Lowe and Larmour are better, but obviously Larmour is the best 15 so you need to pick from the rest. I had high hopes for Adam Byrne but he still seems to be where he was two years ago. Kelleher could break through too but similar situation. McFadden, if fit, would probably be better than DK.

                      He ran a great 12 dummy line for Ringrose's second try to allow Lowe into space. Obviously the opposition wasn't up to much though.

                          Yeah I saw that. More his distribution etc. that I think is a bit lacking, but Leinster seem to be coping just fine.

                            Didn’t see the game so cannot judge, but seems he did well.

                              Well he wasn't playing at that level in the previous to seasons though...

                                Hard to believe that after winning 50-21 its possible to feel like your team had a shocking performance. Far too many mistakes, far too many turnovers, shocking maul attacking structure, really poor defensive performance.

                                Need to really improve for the inter provincial games over the next few weeks.
