      I read somewhere that the call up for camp Farrell was only a 24 hour brainstorming and carol
      singing and meeting up again in January. Does that mean that we will get close to full teams ?

        shambles. And lim man Clancy on the line. Surely could get Owens or Whitehouse. For this. It’s not the 26 dec
        so normal flights resume. Didn’t poite ref this in 2013 ?

            God knows we will need a Christmas miracle to even set foot on the same field as the best academy system in the wurreld.


            We haven't a hope against such superior and frankly, handsome rugby princelings.

            Not a hope

              Not fair on Murphy. I thought he did a solid job last year when some of the Leinster lads completely lost their heads but it was a nightmare game to ref, and he took a lot of flak. Not fair to put him in that position again where every call he makes will be second guessed and dissected for evidence of partiality. Surely to god they could give him Ulster v Connacht and bring in somebody else.
              I think we all get it that refs can be above this stuff but its a bit like "conflict of interest" even the semblance is enough so you simply avoid it in the first place

                      yeah but IRFU would say there is no problem there either. He is from Cork and played for Munster.
                      For me the issue is last years game and the pressure that will put him under.
                      And Leo wont be doing his job if he doesnt mention it.....

                        Surly the number one ranked Irish team in the league shouldn’t have anything to fear from the a lower ranked Irish team.

                        Looking forward to a trip down south, shame about the dodgy refs again and all the best players getting the night off but in fairness I think we will both top our conferences regardless so meh.

                        Happy Christmas to all you who are that way inclined.

                        “One, Fineen needs to be louder, angrier, and have access to a time machine. Two, whenever Fineen’s not on field, all the other players should be asking 'Where's Fineen?

                          You've little to fear, we wont even be able to chase you out of town if it is wet - our wooden shoes hold little traction on moist surfaces.

                            All I know is Japan outplayed all the Leinster based Irish players during the World Cup (all the Munster lads were class) and there are a load of Japanese lads in the Murphy’s ad on the TV.

                            MURPHYS!!
