    Marginal decision to me. I can see why Nigel decided it was a yellow. Don’t agree with you.

      I've been around here long enough to know that this has literally never, ever happened. There are like five Leinster posters here and we don't comment on attendances because we largely don't care. But good attempt at trying to derail a Leinster thread.

      Didn't see tonight's game as I was at Shamrock Rovers but sounds like we got the job done. Looking forward to watching back tomorrow.

        Deliberate shoulder to the face, no? First time I saw it I thought it might be accidental but you can see he decides to lean in.

          Nothing remotely marginal about it. As clear a red as I've seen in a while.
          "It’s not the team you support, it’s the club you should support. The team on the pitch will ebb and flow because that’s the nature of sport. No team has ever been successful decade on decade. The club has the history and that’s the passion you should have."

            He jumps to hit McFadden in the head with his shoulder. No attempt to make a legal tackle. It is a red all day long.

              Cheetahs handled the yellow well, and got a lucky try- jack on from a ruck on halfway, and very pacy wing out runs everyone. In flashes last night Cheetahs moved the ball from hand to hand well, but they kicked away huge amounts of possession, and very badly. They may be difficult to handle on dry pitches- but awful in the wet.

                Should have been a red card in my opinion too
                "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

                Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                  No great surprise to hear that Ox Nche has been cited for his shoulder to the head of McFadden.

                    New deals for Cullen and Lancaster

                    Comment


                      It would be interesting to know which of the two was signed first
                      Has Fineen put Johnny down yet?

                      Comment


                        Cullen was first and he signed off on Lancaster.

                          Leavy should be back soon? Toner?

                            Leavy and Luke McGrath are expected to be back for the Edinburgh match on Friday. Toner, it would seem, won't be back until after the Ulster match. Ditto Henshaw and vd Flier.

                              Serious worry that the shocking Irish performances in the 6N will carry forward into Europe

                              The seeming lack of power from.the forwards suggests Racing away will not go well(hopefully Toulouse if it is Leinster).

                              ...not to mention Jonny's erratic behaviour/form.
