        Does anybody actually believe this crap...

        "The Leinster Rugby home jersey for the new season is rooted in the region and Laighean, the ancient Irish name for the province.

        "The jersey design takes inspiration from the people of Laighean, the name linking the ancient ancestors of the Leinster province to their expertise at throwing the Laighean, a green broad headed spear.

        "This is represented on the famous blue jersey by a pattern of spearheads raining down – a bold look for the new kit. Tonal three stripes, collar and cuff are complemented by the contrasting Leinster crest on the left chest.

        "Continuing the homage to the Leinster province, the Leinster Rugby Alternate jersey for the season is a graphical representation of the 12 counties.

        "The green and gold colours are direct call outs from the provincial Leinster flag, once again tying into the history of the province as Leinster Rugby represents the 12 counties on the road. Linking into the home jersey and the people of Laighean, hundreds of spearheads are used to outline the individual counties in the pattern of the new Alternate jersey.

          According to here, "The ancient kingdom of Leinster comprised the present counties of Wexford, Wicklow, Carlow and Queen's County [Leix] the greater part of Kildare, of King's County [Offaly], Kilkenny and that part of Dublin south of the river Liffey. Parts of Kilkenny bordering on Tipperary and the southern parts of the King's County belonged to ancient Munster and some of the northern part of the King's County belonged to the province of Meath. The above named territories continued to be the limits of Leinster down to the Reign of Queen Elizabeth but in after times the old kingdom of Meath was added to Leinster, and also the county Louth, which was part of the ancient kingdom of Ulster."

            ...and they lived in a very civilised place which was for some reason called 'the Jungle' and they held a great dread of a much more ferocious tribe which lived on the Northern banks of a great river which the people of Laighean feared to cross.

                        I don't recall Noel Reid playing 10 before.

                          not for at least 4 or 5 years - back when he wore a scrum cap

                            I see Mr Popular (Dave Kearney) is back. Interesting to see if he makes his way back into the Irish squad. Wingers are not in great supply at international level by comparison to centre.

                              Fairly sure he played some of his first Leinster games at 10 - that's the position he went into the academy at.

                                Very talented player but a bit unlucky with who was in front of him in the queue - seems a strange move for him now - he would be 4th in line at 10 now? more chances at centre for him Shirley?
