    Would make excellent TV in both sports.
    lancaster has done some interviews with OTB and english rugby paper (can't remember which one). Was pretty interesting frm my hazy memory. He came across as someone who really is innovative and interested in excellence, made teh mistake of taking England HC role which did not suit him as took him out of tracksuit and into media, politcs etc. He's on record i think saying he loves it at leinster as Leo takes care of all the stuff Lancaster did not enjoy freeing him up to focus on coaching and player development.

    Leo is also quite influential behind the scenes in growing the outreach programs and building out th relationships to more schools and clubs in leinster to widen the player base AFAIK

      this is a massively underrated talent in all walks of life...

      not sure if I agree with the second bit.

      anyhoo I would usually wish you guys luck for tonight, but y'know not tonight...

        Hopefully it's a humdinger. Hopefully Munster push on tonight and reach a new level for this team.

        Believe!

            I think I read somewhere that Lancaster preferred coaching to the DOR role, but could be wrong on that.

            Agree on the coaching and disclosure issues, could make for an interesting Netflix series.

              I hopeful that Leinster lose interest mid 2nd half when their lead tops 50 points and lets us play a bit. Be a shame if we shipped a 100 point defeat.

                JJ will have to be taken off before half time suffering from exhaustion caused by having to kick off so much. Rory won't last 'till the hour mark and we'll end up with Murray having to kick off for the rest of the game.

                  Mike Haley off the team. Wycherley to 23, Coombes comes in at 19.
                  Have to say I did not see that one coming!

                        Will give it a listen but...

                        "effective leaders" - doesn't sound too promising - hopefully not to much managerial psychobabble and personal rattling and pleny of detail on the coaching.

                          They're waiting for confirmation that Farrell and DDA have picked up injuries in the warm up.

                            No much better to have them get injured in the first 3 minutes
                            Warm-up injuries give you the chance to replace the players which our luck really cannot afford lately
