      Outside chance it was Eddie Vedder...
      He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

          Sounds like a little bit of sour grapes from Leo to me. The way I see it, he looked at what was ahead of him at Leinster and then looked at what would be ahead of him at Munster. Odds of breaking through are far greater. Ryan & Archer are fairly average and shoving, no disrespect, while Porter & Furlong are internationals and still quite young. Very little coming through TH wise at Munster too. From the outside looking in at it career wise the move just makes sense. Chance may have not arisen again.

            On the money there I would think. Probably also some encouragement from David N.

              The gap between the verbal agreement and him signing a contract with Munster. In any environment, that's a dropped ball. If you think there's any chance at all of him attracting other attention, you get it signed.

              If I was Cullen, I don't think I'd have been quite so candid about being blindsided. It's not a good look.

                Absolutely. You're a young Prop with ambitions, you're behind the current Irish one and two, and there's a chance to move to a strong European side who don't right now have a Tight Head in the Irish squad.

                Seems a no brainer to me.

                    Not forgetting Knox who looks a real prospect.

                      This and the lineout is all he does to be called “Leinster boss”, Lancaster does everything else and he can’t get his two jobs done correctly.

                        First Jack McGrath deciding propping for Leinster wasn't for him, and now Roman moving to a far superior province, hoping and praying he becomes more like Bull and less like Bent. Doesn't look good for Plug all these acrimonious propping departures.... Didn't Sexton have a whinge at Jack leaving for pastures new...? Pair of bitches.

                          True but you need 2 serious props that are interchangeable. Come 50-60 mins you should of the other lad coming from the bench.

                            I'm cautiously optimistic for tonight. As Rowntree said the other day, past results don't really mean much in the context of this season.

                            I'd love us to try to get them into a unstructured dog fight. They are excellent when it's all nice and predictable, but struggle when they are scrambling. Faster ball off the ruck, more variation, make them think on their feet a bit more.

                            After so long in the wilderness, we've got to crack a semi final. Why not today?

                            Hon Munster.

                              It's almost as if Leinster are slightly nervous. Lancaster comes out telling the referee to get the big calls right (McBain's stand up comes to mind) and now Leo having a go at Munster poaching Salanoa. Here's hoping for one big fight with a bit of rugby in between! I reckon JP would bate Lancaster too.

                                If I was Leo Cullen I'd probably avoid any sort of media whinging while also making sure to kiss my Stuart Lancaster poster before I went to bed every night in my Leinster Schools branded pyjamas.
