ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This week we take a look back at Leinster's loss to Munster in the opening round of the Rainbow Cup before previewing our trip to France to take on La Rochelle in the Semi-Final of the Heineken Champions Cup

Hi we his position, the news talk oragain, John David myself are going to look back over and insters first outingin the Rainbow Cup in our defeat against most Audio Rainbow Co. Action,of course, look forward to our big semi fun against Larochelle and the Hanukahchampions cop. So boys, I suppose, monster broke their duck,our first win and all as it seven games against lenter, but they beat hisfairly comprehensive two twenty seven three in a parly meaningless match.Well, except for the fact that we were able to guess two of our players been agame time for next weekend, yeah. Well, it doesn't mean this for amonster. They ton't mean it was for us either totally meaning the safe. We live onSaturday set on some days how meaningless it is, but to thee on theleague yeah, but it isn't the league, it's a new competition yeah. This is our primary domesticcompetition there and that's why we played a team was probably going tohave ten to eleven changes from our owning COMTEAN the, but it ill wasn'tmeaningless. But I teton of US actually rate the competition thinkth have had apropre finish out O I don't mean that I just mean that is I a competition rightnow it is bushlike. It's now the equivalent of the League cop. How oftenhave we slagged of moons for over the years for not by on their action todomestic competition, a props yeah and push that's the league at Yes, theLeague on the League. This is a game where we went into usand we played a very fairly weak inside, like you know, when we play our fifth choiceout has no, but by us not by design. Obviously, we we chosen probably or you might argue or Turd, if not a fortchoice is half and certainly for to ice or even the result being asimportant. When I was really thought disappointed, it was the formance it doesn't it doesn't matter. Iwouldn't lose any sleep over a day. I wouldn't lose a moment. I ningee. Atthe same time. You know you want to see a letter team trying and then, if you can, I you can't put on themoney. Every single game of er every single week it to sports, regardless ofwhat level you've played, as does work like that, you can't do it. You can'tget up to that level of intensity every week, so you have to have games likethis. You think. Do you think that I'm not saying deplay well or arguing thatthey played well on the play badly? That's it do you think they tried toplay well yeah. I do it be by a team that were highly motiveand I cans as no they're beaten by Eyah by a better team on the night yeah.It's no me a team that was stack so with the exception of combs, who was onthe bench that was monsters, first, choice, team and that's entia. I saidto you that team that was agon on last Saturday will probably have ten, if noteleven changes to us yet. So we is far from our first choice. Fifteen and youknow you have to try and compare like what, like so your paring, our bestheat side, most best team against our possibly third strain team doesn't work.You can't do it. I ears were beaten by a betty best yeah you couldn't, but youcould argue that they weren't a loud play. They it all stemmed from a packthat was destroyed and I I you you can have. You could have the French backline from one Tho s playing last Saturday, but if they got the amount ofball on the crop bile the Leinster forwards produced for for those lads,they still would have been beaten by a similar scar line. Again, I'm not goingto a gem at the performance because that the thedifference in quality between theteams, monops, you say- want to pick the strongest team. Then therecertainly did not, and there are guys who may be. Second. Third, as you say,for choice, fifth choice in some positions, but you don't have to be anintermate. You don't have to be aligned to try your hardest and I don't thinkthat that answer team looked deficient in the effort. Stakes. Yeah well will agree to disagree there.I think they were trying and they tried right up to the end. They were, theywere at muscles, but I don't think you couldn't say they should up shop likemonster did most. I can't even remember they have a locket, but the most a gota bolt. The point it's got to tries. You know twenty seven points. Two trayslike considering the facing run: Rol Shout overs im any ways. That's that'snot lie Dan, that's certainly not lying...

...down and taking a kicking. It was veryclose for the biggest lost we fed against one trick, but also, I think,Jason pointed it during the week. It was it's the first time we let go tojoy in the Ordis since two thousand and forty or something something like that. So like yeah, it's it's not often weget, but when we do get beaten the art as it seems to be like yeah, we lostthe TRAVISA and I think it was two thousand and eighteen and somebody elsebefore we went to double and then we lost same similar into this in nineteam. We had the league in our pockets and we lost the last couple of gamesand we lost a way to Ulster. As well that he can do thus and nineteen andmaybe Glasgo Bush, I think we, I think we got we. We lost three and drew oneof our last four games. was He something like us of top of myhead, but we were so far ahead in the league that it was immaterial. It is asimilar situation, we're not just so far ahead in the lake on the fuckinglake. You know so, of course, if you're going to have a slip, there was the time to have it inthe first game of the ray O couple on a there's plenty of time to make up for aplace, slarter and somebody else later up and be, you know, needs to say JoSchmidt, engineer, dips and performance, occasionally during the season to dips and reveres, but the engineeredgames where I think what he used to do was put in teams that weren't expectedto do well. G DEMOP, I'm trying to get them to do, but if they didn't sure- and it was a kind of it- was a dip thatyou could. You know because, like Jason Taereo,you can't be on your game every minute of every game in every season. It justit's not possible. So I most a really really needed to win. I wouldn't say wemade them more card for it, but I really don't think we let them work allover us like we fought against it. We just didn't, have the COLASI that dayend, but that that's a Jonather was quite a few mitigating factors. Whenyou consider that calendars podice, I think the day before Frale Pori on the eve of the match,then you have Harry T so dinatherium after five minutes. So essentially youhad a hawk Shaw. who was probably thinking about you know what you know.I don't know whether there I even go to the match, but like a was read he wasdrafted in, but in five minutes he was playingagainst monster with a very inex. Like he's. Quite anexperience himself he's only got a handsome of games. Hu Sullivan has been around a while,but hasn't had that many games, and you know when you look at that chasten your restarts. So all right caps very,very few starts your late. Nine ten or a are the full come of your thing, andI I mean I very like weeten in ary a thou coloboo ten and calanders e. WhoWas it was you know an everage international, but young nough go sothat was a slight risk, but then those two guys are God yeah an you got. Asyou say, your fifth choice, a at and somebody who's post into eight is notan eight like. I know he's played the a couple of times, but he's a six and hecan pay for and five he's definitely not lay. He ends up, as the guy is isthe Folko, but an inexperienced guy at nine. You know who okay was planned onin there and then hochons eight is better at twelve and B is, you know, isvery inexperience, so then say Du ten add into the Max thatRyan hasn't played since the six nations. Probably six seven, eightweeks ago, likewise, pennies been ave for about amonth ring rose is just back again from the six nations and yeah. You know so like it was fan, asthat were really rusty. Hadn't played for quite some time, and I just comeback from injury in a very kind of covered together. Fifteen and like I mean I think thatjust sort of I don't know I mean I say the most disappointing thing for mypoint of view. In a far seen kind of tas say someone like that: Penny haskind of feet of fictos and feed a clay. That's you know. We just expect them tobe at that level, every game because of what we've seen of him and, sadly youknow he's kind of exposed and little Tis and he's not quite there. Yes, no it and phenomena player. Now, okay, he's beenplaying most of his games against Te...

Liza, and you know teams that areenough Topnot, but any time we have to step up to tap my position, he's hasn'tbeen an wanting. I mean he's a super player but, like I said, I don't think it waslike of ever or like of good players. Although we didn't have a lot of ourtough player, it was the key players in those Cape positions, especially byeight nine ten and the rest of the pack being kind of disjointed like therewere crack and players in there after come way. I was in there an de ContiChess Cris Andrew popite was in there. You know you had had some serious, achange rhyme, as you mentioned, yet some serious guys in there, just they wearing in combinations thatyou were used to seeing and that they were used to finding in themselves. Sothat's where you is your cohesion and you can get away with a little bit ofthat in your game, but a not at eight nine and ten and b. You know not so much of it all over thepark. So you know that. Okay, there excuses I'm giving your rather thananything else, but you know there they're legitimus excuses of it, and Ireally, I suppose, I've been harping on this point since we started, but lack of effort now, like of cohesion.Yes, you know those. Sometimes I just wonder: If there'scertain types of players, some players- a can perform absolutely brilliantlywhen the opposition is an old, as you mentioned, scape can look absolutelyfront or has looked fantastic when the standard of up opposition has been. Youknow, on the weaker side, when the PO twelve sides are up against andthey're missing a few of their internationals and we can slate in ournon internationals and we kind of generally beaten quite hampy, maybe am a saying to about Capen, is usin himas an example. He still very young, but then there's some just some fellowsthat can't make that step up that they're very good at hommering peopleat a lower level, but they can't make up the step up to the higher level andthen you other players kind of the converse of that who are outstandingwhen the opposition is. You know so much better. I'm talking about someonelike Ryan Bard, somebody who, when we've seen him, come on whether it'sagainst Saracens ripping the ball as of Tojo's arms. Likewise, he came on worna penalty against Scotland ripping the ball out of. Was this a Vin Pinales arms in in when the island in a match this year and I've seen him play open? I just sawI was like a stream of the Max Day of the of the islands, a match againstastray and this match and he was almost anonymous in those games like so he showed a bit of bottle in us andwhen it was a bit of a male but didn't really do much else in the game yeah. Well, I believe the classic Cliche for thattype of player is a flat track body and I don't think got penny is one of those. I just think he didn't have a greatgame. They left them. Leaving aside the Aginense, whetherthey're any good or whether the effort was there till some o e ton have to dryin that match for whatever reason, because we got absolutely destroyed atthe breakdown. We turned over fifteen balls in the match and he was still therewith his. You know huge lack of experience, experience in and a inside that outside and he gotabsolutely fecking burnt yeah. It's like, I think we mentioned this in oneof the Ireland Games. I think it was against Georgia when they played Sidlinon the other side and players to come up very exposed, necessarily ber fault.You know I mean there. It's in Eve, they've been let down from theirteammates and they're the ones that are highlighted because they're they'rejust so exposed in it. Like you, some of them. What else can you do if hisbon is crape the opposite of what happened to hers a little? It happenedto Rowan Osborne down and monster was a travelin to do two years ago, where wesent down a fairly again, I read of ten experience, came down to monster andRon author was a Scrim half and, I think, was his first rat for as ricecracking game what he was. He was given great protection job I mean we dominated. We dominated thebreakdown that day, with the result that her on Osborne. Had, I wouldn'tsay it was an arm chair right, but he had it. It was certainly a morecomfortable chair than that than then the milking. Still that feel Sullivanfound himself precariously balanced upon it and, of course that, because you'vegot a guy on her massive pressure back in the breakdown he's gonna justdiscover an on ball to an experience, ten who is not really sure how to grabthe game s and then you've got a guy...

...outside him who definitely was out ofform in and he's a good players a player. I have. I have a lot of timefor our on a Laffan Ben, a terrible game and it all flows on you know and itmultiplies as it cos down the light. So, at the time the ball was getting to youknow, lame or low or Lamor or Party batwas caught with slow ball. There wasa riding with three or four the defenders on top of it and it wasprobably arriving behind them anyway. Yaana disappointing, like we were tenthree at half time, you know with Hawk Shaw, Mister Fairly, kick the boat kickjust on the stroke. Alfie could have been a different score. Ol, obviously,would have been a different Scortin if you went who went in ten six, but thefact that we were seventeen mailed in the second half. You know there was like we were there and there bitto havetime. Ten three have a kick ago and we just didn't really fire. We didn't firea buller in this, in the second hand, and second half, but I like just before we move on, wasobviously bigger Pisa. One thing that does actually show say that does gotowards the point you are making a is. You know. Other priorities was was afifty minutes when all the the lads he might be playing on Sunday, which ishoofed off yeah. Well, I mean, like you, saw that there was a couple of younglads on the bench mark in Maloy and Cornaro in so imagine, Ome and he comeclothing. Like you know, tell me, am black as well as first came back, yeah,yeah and like it just goes to show that probably brings it up to fifty age orfifty nine lad. Stead of tug do disease a phenomenon again before I before Imove on just wanted to. What did you think of archers alo? Did you think itWeeneth red? Yes Yeah? I think it warn't I but there's two things in Er.Yes, I certainly think it war in in red, but remember I was saying a couple ofweeks ago about refts dialing on the car yeah yeah I one not because he wasthere were other incidents in other games, not just as nothing to do ananswer monster to do it almost every game. I watched it over the last two orthree weeks. Every card has been died down one not if, if you're going towork on someone Pules, you can prepare yourself to work of the field and stayover the far Oh, you should be, but that's that's a love his chest onto hisstomach, a love to his bulk yots. If lenter were anything like what theynormally are. I'd be quite happy with Steven Actor on getting ten minutes rimove. Moving on. I we draw a line onthat game anyway, and on Friday nights game was like. Ithought I was hoping that Star game on Saturday was going to be equally asgood as the matcham Friday night, a a poster, conocer just fantastic game,and we kind of spoke briefly about the newlaw. Changes was kind of decaying their high license and literally a well evenif just before that, like holster kind of they score a try and they still tooka challenge, it seemed strange that was that was that was mindless from allStra. I was were they trying to get someone's in Ben Yeah. They were tryingto get because he's really. I was happy a league, he was got a. You know badenough for everything. Eh. Ah, and I don't know what they talked to weredoing because it was. It was outside the five minutes anyway, so they picked, it just shows actuallythe's a new kind of tactical P, a piece of tactical nous. The captains have tobe aware of it's coming, it's coming out from thecoaches to we, because it's hard for a captain to see it go up eh, but youstill have to have that. I mean Henderson kind of pissed away thattheir challenge and it was gone and then, in the last five minutes, whenthey might have been able to use it, you never know they might have foundsomething that they could use it on the way the Onece condos there is toperfection. It was excellent, yeah kind of and the way that they capitalized onit as well, and it was really cool heads that the he's a battle. Well,he o for what's his name of lady man made the break was a larry. I was convinced that once that try wethen that kind of put once again shut themselves of the most kind to be allover. I was so glad, but it wasn't. You know they really really played the endof that game so well and they could have taken a drive as well. That's whatI say on I had to that. I would have toute wise if you like, it's all aseasy to the wise thing to do, would have been taking the draw and then getready for extra time, but no Watonwan take the two point. Ere You man, Papa you men in Papelito therecause he made such a difference. When you came on, I was I can as him. I think, like youcause, I know he's probably trying to adjust from NRO to well, as the union was yea, he if hegets a, can get his elbows down as he's driving into people. I on Radas, against the cowboys onSaturday morning in the nor, and there...

...was another Papilio Papa Li he who cameon and changed the game again and so there's a no relation, but just a itwas fully like two games and watch one after another in terms of a player withthe same name had the same effect in the game. Yeah well good good for conection ofdeserve to because they've been knocking for a while of May, and italways seemed to blow it in the last number of plays. You know: Telitha E,One thousand nine hundred and sixty oerroe mark up and those mentoit. So that's like sixty years. That's along time yea so to win. Ter again is obviously a bigdeal for them. I mean Jesus. Why wouldn't it be? If you don't win therevery O on there for sixty years, the big jail yeah? Well, I mean the one wastwo thousand nineteen o thousand eight n read then- and this is the secondtime to do it, so it's becoming a habit. Finally, and you get so sick at whatand cone of lose by, you know they're coudon, so well in theEuropean game, and you know all of a sudden something stupid happens on me.Well, we sound that against Leicester I mean they had it didn't win. The castewent down with the herds and they, I don't know think it was. I was theworst display o. It was the first time in a while we're kind of been in thatsituation, where they didn't shoot themselves in the Fort Yeah. That wasgoing to say, you know that they actually did the right. They actuallyplayed the right. I mean if, if they hadn't scored that final try, we'dprobably be here going. Why don't they take the points? Take the draw theyshut themselves in the force. They didn't get the win bow, but you knowfortune favors, brave, m yep for baton just come to the otherresults I just mentioned them. EDBURG BE Zebra to these will be gladto mme loans to put a bit a glass on the score aspers be card. If yourbeloved cart of Jam, you are doing a pre season, tour of the stadium therelast weekend, yeah my favorite team and my favorite team in Wales. Big May bemy favorite team ever at that would have the bitter spite of thespurned lover and dragons beat scarlets. That was, Iwatched that match. I think it was. I think scars came back and were a headpoint and then I just included in the second half was a Gichi mean fairplates a drags under under Ri Dan Right case? That's they shipped fifty pointsagainst the dragons and they shipped fifty points against. Was it sale inthe European Cup? You know I that like has it. They really get to play the dragons inin Dave parade because there's usually dust thing in the milanise mutengereday and that's a that's a home game for, for. I think current on dragons on the two Westweasie come come to visit, so they actually never get to play in RodneyBrad. So it's it's interesting that when they do theyget slower. It's all time the dragon plans given out of it that they give upthe round advantage to go and play it. The judgment Type Place Dragon get about four millionfrom the gate. recettes don't give out of it. Just a asking for a friend yeah well anyway, as as we've managedto kick off the rain book up and just a few good games as in and on got toseafogs this weekend, but we've also Gosse the Clinian Champions Cup andchallenge propose was at we play Ronner Lavisher, I'm sick and tired. I'mlistening to has twibute, don't listen to it. I have to listen to us at a shame, justa shame. It's not Johnny Sex and virologists it I haven't. I haven'theard anything about Ron nogaras La Rochelle, a a fucking listener. Wouldn't it be crazy if, if Johnny Saxton was there in the crowdand he could plan the camera over to a din anything happened, ehe was on the pitch and they could panthe camera to go. They did that for years, every time atem. I don't want to linger on this ray for too long, but like it's all the mat like every everysource and even the good ones are mentioned in it, and it's all when hecome back. He has to come back for...

Ireland and he has to come back frommonster like it's. The Dream Team of him and O Canal Managing Ireland like Leo Colum, must be scratching his headgoing. Okay, I want to high mean cops. I Captain Venter to three I've coachedthem to two finals and EMERICA would say: Is that all yeah? So okay, but you know he's in the Irishsystem right and I'm sure like, but there's hues, no is not like Jackman. Last week on, the forty twopodcast was was lamenting the fact that there was no progression of Irishcoaches that if you had it a fire, an accent you seem to get parachute in andplace of them, which is which is actually Jason. A fair point, that'sbeen, it is a Jackman and others have made that point now for going on tenyears. Yea. No, I agree with him, but I'm just saying you've got you've GotLeo Colin Who's coach are minster for four or five or six years now and he's you know it's the most soughtafter or as the most professional operation in the country, like they've, got everything takenalong a great academy, great coaches, massive amount of quality players thatare being rotated. That seem to be very happy to stay there to get limited gametime compared to somebody who might decide to take a trip up to bell fasterday, Antonym IC or over, to go away. You know there was talk of Scott Pennywas highly and sought after and he decided to stay. You don't mean, and he knows that he's it's going to take a few injuries and lesser matches for him to get selected and yet they're still are prepared tostay. But it is nothing about his column and it seems I'm sure you mustbe just thinking like only the fact that he has seems to have zero ego. I'myou know like it just seeing I said or I the dog bites man is it a story: J L, Leos in charge of lanstrup on bothas a player and a couch and then start what enstate yeah idea that lends orpaying a French team who are happened to be coached by their former forwards,couch and Irelands. All Time Record Point score and the Hadian cops out enrecord point core who's from Eland and is also from Leinster's biggest rival. That's what that's! What that's? Whatthe news is about? I mean and if we were in the media, we'd be making thesame story and we right in the same Tigrane. It's so boring and lazy likeanyway. I look at I do want to. It is you're right. It is boring. A lazy andit's Boring Lacy and me and John, and the hundreds of thousands of others inthe ensor any probably indeed in monster as well a part of it, butthat's one of those articles. AFORE, HMM DOTS, a Ho those pieces for thefront of people. You Go. Oh Rono, Garra, I've hardain exactly fair enough, fair enough! Okay,look is, I remember you met. You were talking to Derecho that time and who hewas talking about about the difference between a monster, actial and mentorArtica in there star Yeah. That's the market. That's just anyway! Look so sexon stood Dan is what we're hearing and he's. Obviously we know he's had acouple of concussions. This year looks like they're talking and all ofabout rock, like I saw devin owner on on oppressor. Today he was saying thatSam, you know they've every faith and meanfairness. Lenter have shown enormous faith and in Rosberries I mean he's plain: an He's plays in big games for them whenthey played. You know to play the last two we started last. Two pro fourteenfinals he came on against, alters, kicked a n. We came on, kicked a asideline penalty to kind of W N when oldster were coming back at us. He'splayed against Exeter a couple of weeks ago. I remember, I think he came onagainst Exeter after a few minutes in the thevet, maybe three or four seasons ago,N, three seasons ago, when sexton went off early enough. I think that was Icame so like, but Lenta have put a lot of faith in him in those matches and sohe's paid over a hundred times for the club. You know all the players areinvested in them. There happy to see him as the leader on the bitch whenSaxon's not there. So you know what his moment he's another moment now to shine.I suppose the well that I mean, but it wasn't he. It was neither fun orprofitable to no. So Leo and Stewart...

Lakas ter put their face in him to puttheir eggs in the in the burn basket many years ago and they stopped with aint and is repaid them in fairness to if in a stuper choice they made he'sbeen e e Ben Brot, they could have been burned in gets very good. They could have been carbury varied, no forget that on, but theycould have been they could have been. It could have beat back fire on the,but it hasn't with with the result that you've got a situation where, likeJason says, you can come on like like he did two weeks ago against Exeterwith you know, only with very short distance don and still play out a topEuropean match and dominate and control it'll be interesting to see actuallybecause I've got to feel that the way lands or need to play against a Frenchteam against Larochelle will actually suit his skill set down to the ground. Possibly yeah he's not the worgs greatest runner.Allow he's he's he's a big physical guy, but he's he doesn't have that kind ofhe's. Not He's not the pasiest lad in the world, but he's a very good passer and he's abrilliant kicker, and I don't feel in that. Those are the two skills you needthe most against Larochelle, because if you want to turn Larochelle around andlet them keep than a life, then you that that's what you do youjust you just pit it back and keep the Bott of life all they want in the roltwenty two yeah. I believe that they did a lot ofthat. They were a lot of Hay made againstthem, whether like a sail, keeping them in their twenty two andgetting turnovers and getting possession headed it. That way, and Ithink that could be a huge tactic for us with rustern and his big party pieceas we all love the cross field kick, and I can see that coming in coming outof the locker as well. You know he's under he's on the sixpence with those and face no hes. He got six les, but he's on the sixpencethat hasn't arrived yet, but is running towards the you know. He seems to have a superinlet. There is an otter hype round. There is out partly as Jason put atbecause of you know: Rog been there and, to a lesser extent, on Gibbs at the end of the day, they'vebeaten, Edinburgh, glaster and sail you know, and maybe less or no if theybeat Lances, that's fair enough. But to this point the hype is based on verylittle. Yeah like I just had a look at those matches that he like the glassand if you go back and look at gloster right, so blausser's pedigree was thatthey lost lean and they beat Ulster at home. So you know it wasn't likethat. Gloucester were polenof trees, then they played they played sale, whotumped like a disinterested, scarlet team. So it's not like they at last. I taketwo games in the competition. I think I think they might have yeah yeah yeah.You know like okay, we had a match against Tulan that was postponed, butwe did put thirty five points on Montpelier and thirty five points onNorthhampton and went to the home of the European champions from last year and Englishchampions and beat them even fourteen points, still te yeah just to make it interesting. Yeah.Here's give me that it start he's interesting to hear Robin McBride. Idon't know what he heard him talking about. They hope to keep like talking about ero Garaine, the bottle life. He was saying well from Lentos point of view.They want to keep the ball in hand, keep it in possession. They reckon thatthe ball is in play approximately ten to fifteen minuteslonger by Leinster, Dan Larochelle, and he reckons. If we can, you know, tryand take advantage of the pursuy know, because they're obviously there's someenormous gentlemen on their side. Yep. I like that. I like that strategy allright, but you know only what it's sensible to do so a n. It is often thestrategy were using against team, like if you remember around Pelia a couple oyears ago, had an absolutely Mahouse team M and we just ran Tom. We just ranthem into the ground, like yeah yeah, there's nothing more dispiritingas a big forward when you're made run around a page, the rook, the rook for aboat like that is he. That was my pride's point. He said they go fromsupes to say a piece and then they have you know like. I got one guy's back in twentyfour stone nutter like twenty two stones, so you're talking forty sixstone on your tight and side. So you know it to earl, like,...

...like I put again like a lot of the maidof, say, Larches, lack of experience at this level. Youcan is just horse because if you look at their players do the players areinternational. Just for in the French team, there's a couple of spring boxers,a Royal Cup guy in the world, the New Zealand World Cup winning squad and ase international, some on these as have played huge matches in their careers.But again the the boring, I don't know lazy journalists going or but they'veno they've, no pete degree in this competition. They don't put the oplayers that had got a pedigree in a far beer standard of rope for Hieran,again Jason t e t e Leder, take on team of World Cup andsuper will be winners, isn't much of a story then so bacon under dogs who arecouched by Ron Nogaret, yeah yeah, lucky underdogs. That's have come up toa yes. There were Roethet power of gloster and sale M, yeah yeah. It's we see, here's thething like before we get, you know overcome and decide Lara Shella, just abunch of bombs. They aren't of God. That's what I was my to yeah. Therecame a very, very good place that the clob itself doesn't have any pedigree,but those players do at every club before it wins its first high makingcop has to establish its pedigree. We had we had no pedigree before to a. Wehad the pedigree of losers before two thousand and nine a d until we want it,and then we were winners and it's the same with everyone. It's Tilon I meanClarmont as still losers, because they have a wonner Talon became winnerSaracens. You know you noway matter put their names around the trophy so Larochelle at some point. If they'regoing to be come, a team that wins the high they can cop have to win the HighNickin Cop. It's not going to be this year, a yeah. It's not going to be this shutyeah. I just I just was having a look and I tryplating. The two teams actually did atle graphhere and of success, yeah yeah, but just on the team. I, if you look at a ateam life cycle, so say: If you go back to fifteen week, I really risin spreadsheet A. I know I know so like in fifteen, we got to the semifine, wentout to semi final six team. We didn't qualify so then we were at was. I didand we went back up seventeen. We were a semi finalists. Eighteen, we won atnineteen final, twenty we went out to Quartian, so that was our dip Igennenow currently a steady final level, so our curve is sort of hopefully archingback back up again, you know so it kind of just a I just went true. I was just thinkinglike there's. I remember when, when Sexon came back from resting, he said the team that he had won those highneshi nick and cops with wasn't his team. That was a Gars team, Darcy's team,even Garvin Dempsey's team is Okarian, O o sorry o dresses. Sorry, my mis odriscos team, so Oh dresscoat know I know I know I m obsessing him and butthis sort of the team than regere that on the Hinako two thousand and eighteen,that team was ring, rose furlongs, Conan's team. Even you know, and then this this teamnow to starting to come back up, is Ryn Bard, Doris conners Keller, herCanan's team. You know so each team has people who were lay anything to the to the to the.Like. Obviously, there's some players like keen heli who's been in all thoseteams or Sexton who's been in all em, but they don't consider themselves thatthat's his team, but you know there's this news team. That's coming up nowthat had a trough. Let's say last year: Cornaton a quarter final level, it'skind of sort of rebuilt in orders into new lads coming in since Lockton, oreven you know that he I mentioned them there, like just feel as that, whereprobably in the lance to training camp but wouldn't really have consideredthemselves as to be an anywhere near, been the starter, but now two or threeyears later they are that's fair place. Yes, so so logic, what what team are you like? I mean I saythe front ro kind of picks itself. Right I mean you got to think it's heli color herfor long yeah. Second row, I wasn't so sure I mean. Would you start bay? I seem kindof would be going with sort of my argument for the a selection that theychose for Exeter, that I'd start a tone,...

...but I have Ryan yet on Friday and I'dhave I'd have a bar on the bench. Just forthat amazing impact. He brings the part of Dioterih. To be honest, you go at a bird on forded, yeah and solike. If you want to have going to have fidy on the benches that mean you'renot going to have Taras O presuming daddy's, his calf cares ofwell. He we don't know. If that's going to be the case, but I gif I mean theysaid what did they say? I rose down. I thinkthey just said that they're monitoring situation Faoi havefairy embered on the bench. If Terris is, if thers is got to be available,then you've got a canoe. You know, because you've got that you got thatPike Ro. Well, look. You got a back row that did so well against monster few,if you and against Exeter, even more so with Rook, come and thunder fear. So I be loath to break up yeah, but I'mtalking about on the bench. No, I wouldn't Catharo me to me c having DAS on thebench should be a bit like a judgment used to think about having PettyJackson on the bench great player put on the bench you know used to me. HMM,he only covers one position: Yeah Yeah, well, I've seen I've seen daresplay six and eight, but that's a conundrum. You know like RyanBarr is not going to come on in place even put a wit. Just funder goes downyou're going to have a bit of a problem. You know, that's that probably going tobe alleviated by haven't covered on the pinch either or having Darsana either,but e run it across yeah. That's that's your odiosa! Really!We, like that's what they're dating against Exae, didn't have that optioneither so you're playing against a big baseand you're going to probably be playing some big bees so having two secondrolls on the bench for me is a good good look having having the nose afireto come on and give you twenty minutes of pure out and the speed andexplosiveness of Ryan birds to come on attics or in the Bard. Has He can he?Can he physically quite powerful or for aguy who's, not huge, but he also, I mean he has that elusiveness and thatquickness that he can run around those big guys and add to their exhaustion and pull a bow of them as be, but is isover buddy straight to burnish. Couhe could certainly pulled him off his his is really it's got a really. It's got areally serious, opra buddy for a guy who so you you know in terms of theparent and how he applies it. You had a few big rips there recentlyof was it standard. I Kin emelye seems to do one really every game in placeyeah, because the serious ripes Exeter as well as Emeye yea. So that's, that's all pure upper moneystrength and it we go in. I mean it's not a long done as they play Rove, butI know that goes who were in with that I'm Goin to take the bowl off you paw!Sometimes I? U, even if you're in the hot of the game, you're not expectingthat kind of physical. You know you're not honour,proply tightly, it's going, you know, and you see even like so go- is able todo it sometimes just from the Shark Lady of a big like thinking other crazygin, a real shit, but it's got but Ryan Berry can do it to pretty much anybody.You know it victor vast, so, okay, so half backs I esme Ma and and give Gito Packin sexton. It's all beena massive flimflam again like the press conference wasvery vague about him. They just said being monitored, being managed. I can'tsee either God on Parker set and appearing and let's a tragedy for us,because it means really touch prosper and like we gonna have to play eightyor, as then close to the adios as they can manage. So if I did those good down in thefirst five minutes where are in big brother, because you've got here, O son-and maybe I have to care of proly to over hers o what way they're going todo their affects that I that might be Lego to think that they might actuallytake one of the fords from the bench. I...

I have an extra back in there I mean like like on the bench thenright, so you reckon twenty one is not is g is going to be her sort of antwenty two, probably twenty, three carny. So would you like a tin o four, four yeah? I don't knowwhat it is we like no wait. I can see six to so make a tea for, for you know, because if you don't havetheir place in, I put wait yeah no at no the thens wos fish. I mean it's a tough situation to be gone intowith a Frales team. You don't know how bad itI mean he tightened up, it's what they say. Yeah the captains are, okay, obviouslytook zero, Oh yes, yea and pulled it straight away, so we at point the house:We port, you know they pulled him from from the match. So I presume that he's he's loosened up. Ipresume Harry's gone I for minutes on the pitch and no waydid you do this time, or did you just feel a strain and he they said if youfeel any pose want they were going to do that five minutes into match say Iwith what they had on the bench, there's no way that they take that kindof an action. I don't. I can't see that how have happened. I can't see asituation where that would happen unless it was the Rainbow Cup yeah. No, but I can't I can't see asituation where they do that I mean they did. They were already kind of a aa a like you're, a positive with in a period say in experience. Ten alreadywould be nine in the middle, so there wouldn't they would have done that. Idon't see that an I thought I think he's gone for the for the for the nextweek or two yeah. I be interesting, use good newses, having been absolutelyscunder for centers, for I do know several months now, we'veactually got henchen ring rows, fit for a big game like that's huge. Okay, ifthe bull doesn't pass ten S, it's not going to be an advantage, but you know: WE'VE: it's been a weaknessthat we haven't had those two guys together for a long time, so I'mlooking forward to that I'm looking forward to either of them stepping inat the first resave as well a job. The last couple of games you've had henshawand Henshot Center it and on the way I fun o Etienne. Sanding like you,wouldn't you wouldn't think there was more Montante PIC, no it's great tohave to to them back together. Again, it's great to have like that means. Youhave options: okay, we're not going to they're not going to be at we're, notgoing to be using a side, but there the options are there kind of thing?Hyeahin thing, though, about running a is that you can stone into the y? U N W! Theyconfuse things like quotin, twelve in his like as well. So there's no beother twins. Nobody can tell them apart. Mysticis fast position is thirteen. Is both positions on the field? Wi?Think if you had, if you, if you, if you could play him in his, what youtake my be, is most natural best positions. Thirteen but he's also mybest twelve. So now, if rally were around at my changeactually for Ali had had had had had a full season, you might make Raros whyhe found them. STEFFUM PRESSURE FOR SELECTION MMA didn't happen because notnot because of an lake quality and men in ringrose, but because Fraley is ableto play that second, five, eight role that nobody else doors or nobody elsedoes well anyway, and he does do well, so it led er wanted to change the theshape of the back line. They could do that and henshaw is Brittan to thirteen,but look at that's how just you know it's probably the sky as well, becauseit were not going to be doing against ashow, but yeah it's going to be lame or cat carry on the wind Mooka. I I go lame. Well, I wouldn't I wouldn'tbe depressed to see it. The ARBEH Happy Ones gonna be on the bench of one isgoing to be. thertainly has actually come into a better form in the lastcouple of weeks. He's the stuff that have been not working for is beginningto work from the and its feet are looking good. It's got to tis againstExeter Fort transeat yeah. That's what I'm saying like he's become back day.Corny had a very good season, though, and there's nothing if you're not goingto be able to catch their wingers anyway, no matter who you pick a, we have to be bold, like we have toyeah yeah. You know we can't just whahae conservative in this game. We Hhave to actually go for us and, like...

...you know, they do in front as two ofthem. They do go for when they get that when they do get the chance, they don'tjust sit back and- and you know, think o penalty will come. We lock this overpelle coming back this over, like you know, as we saw against like by doingthat, we wouldn't have won against Exeter. We were fourteen now do and wehave to take risks and go go for go for pro at the right time, though, becausewhen we did, of course, when we did get the great thing about that leads forperformance, as well as everything else and having Ras burn there as well. Arusper been in the midde of it was that when every time we got an opportunityto just take a little bit away from Exeter when we got into the lead bytaking their enemies- and that was you know slowly squeezing what was left inthem out absolutely and they gave away really rule no Tis, dumb penalties andDunbar of the bitch yeah. Okay, we ever reliable, Garvet Foak arwell, is his spiritual successor, but for at up yet no worries with him, and I guess we're going low on theother Wang Banis good man for Europe. I reckon, I sure way seems to create a betterexcitement. Dane doesn't me I may him in France I mean he's good at Maham inFrance, HMM, okay! So that's our semi final, so theother one is to lose against Bordeau, it's kind of like the haves and the have nots. The best wereboreen of they want it. Their aspiring to have tobe the Hams to push in a tose to lose, have been there and done that fourtimes like ourselves. So if our selves and to lose with it'll, be the fivestars, the eleven in the in Bora, which you have to remember, is a union of twoclubs Bordeau and Begler and begone a lot of stuff in the S and s I O. I know I said this two weeks ago,but are you sure it's not just because they like to bring bage sort or games?No, it wasn't twenty. Then John. It's not funny. No Ye. My a m dedication to the bit, but so so bigly have a been of that clubhas a bit of heritage in it as well. Some of it has the most Mi numbinglyviolent team to ever play Ruby O my normally boring watching them play,and it was mine, moming watching the bay or quite rect. Yes, in an era, bere French Ruby in thetough fourteen wasn't exciting at all Begler plumbed new depths, but y workon, I think to lose, are going to happy nou. I think so too. I think to lose on oneleg. I got to give them a good scene to to lose lose around a mission fromJesus to stop what's getting an extra star. Well, it is the dream of all a worldwas really obviously a part from Laracor and and monster fiends to seeto this, and unless you're gone for Conoor the fivestars and of the four teams left, you know, it'd be really nice to havesomebody get five stares, whether it's those are to his? Obviously it don'twant to be produced, but you know it is the dream fighter forthe jet for the anybody who's promoting the capon she parts on it makes puns ofship money or TV money or you know, you've got to be open for a lesser tolose shoot like for five stars and no forget the the first of Tolosa Starswas in the Enogat ear of the competition, and ninety five is in thefirst season of professional robe. So that's how far back they go and theyhaven't one of since two thousand and ten. So maybe the Diein Coop, but you know we're much more team ofrecent winds like we don't e won last time they went. We don't even how onCook and now we've got our earlier other three and they were. They were akicker, the head away from three in a row, and he already will admit notes.You know there were a very compter final against wasps, where the ball bat yeaaa few would. But your has on thatone now, so they were the team o these I movedon sit with job. I was just blessing over that en to you,Jason. I was exposed to and just run over theright, it yeah, so so yeah. Hopefully we can.Hopefully we can take it home and we bring it home the Bacon and and putthat dream final in the in the pocket...

...of the organizers. THAT'S MY DREAM!Anyway. What about you guys and of course, some great it's greatfor it's great for watching Colum as well, for the ores from the mediawho'll be able to go on about what's his name Reggie. What's his face, whoused to coach down a band on a well Reggie Sanis? Isn't it he? He is coachdown abandoned, so they can. They can they can talk up, they can talk. oReddy Sana is to do in Costegan. There will be another team for the monsterlads to get behind a. They must spend a fortune on Jersey's a as much as you Dave, I am by Jersey and ages. I'm reallymissing it. You've got a love them to be going tobe cycling through well just looking at year after thesoft town is over and may fit into some of them. Just looking at the Challenge Cupmatches back take on Mopeli. Obviously weIMEGINE early. We put thirty five points on them earlier on the seasonand I bath are supposedly resurgent yeah, but then so lester well, we'll see what I'll start up tosay about it. At O, teams were described as resurgentin the Times on Monday. Oh, that's it! The paper of record yeah. I hopeful that also team looksdecent play. I mean five five changes from them: The one that lost the canosto Bro, back Asola, Marti, more jody Murphy, Alano,conner and Closky E. I'm still not sure thatthey're. I still think that they'd be betterserved with stop. Tell one wing BALCON on the other, and Michael lowry inbetween yeah is tergo. For that, for sure I mean I mean they decided to go, stop tothe fall back. Mataro he's a very good player. You know on the wing, but Istill think that they they get more out of having those three guys on the pitch yeah like yeah, it's hard to know, but I meanthey're. Obviously I sort of they've played they've pay start. They won'tseem to want to move stock tail to phone back. Maybe they want to get themon the wall more but like will addison is coming back yeah so, which I'mdelito see, I think, he's just a against Wat again against connot. Thatwould move down the line, lovely yeah. That was a thing of beauty like yeah and like he was on looking for theTropicos, try the last minute of yeah. Just bounced over his head yea, butyeah he's a superhero, so I don't understand the rash now be life bygetting stuck there in a far back like as a long term plan, because and no I don't see the a simes therejust spent the last eighteen months, converting Lamori into a fore backright. Yeah he's done really well for been a guy. who was you know anundersized out half when he started he's done really really well and andknow they have a Tison as well and now they're putting stuff in and there itseems to be a strange kind of way to boil the air set of the Number FifteenJersey. It is like I watched tarmac againstNorthampton and like they made really heavy weather. On that I meanNorthampton, did everything in their power to to give them the game, andthey did I mean like they got. I think they had three yellow cards in thematch and you know they like every time theyevery time olster scored. They seem to concede shortly after, but they want itin the end. But I was just I was just thinking that, like like they've had so many opportunities,that's that a lens ter have tortured them, whether it's in Hinako final, I Inga Quarter Finalumpteen times in your semi finals or finals. After pro twelve, there is no Linster in this tournamentnow I know that they were absolutely missed,that they were them on. The same points same pretty much the same record as asmonster, but obviously they were stay. We in our conference, so monster gotinto the fine ahead of them, and I know they were really annoyed at that and, like the the kind of blew their chance,they had that the huge lead to Outina- probably ten points ahead of us and thetable, but they lost the two games against US yeah and that was curtained.A second game was current for them yeah, but they have sorry just going tofinish up like they were. They had they've always been toward byus. They don't Ave us, as I said, but now they have a chance and a kind of they could go back to zero again ifthey don't win in this game. You know I...

...mean like it's very hard to rebuildhimself again after yet another false on, but so it's a lot of pressure onthem too, but they's like they have a great team. He he've a lot of great players and I'm not sure if the teams had in theSoart I'd say that this Guy Natiata organization a wake up sweating in themorning going linter and I'm sure that they're still not convinced that, evenif they beat Northampton, they won't end up playing US somehow, somehowwe'll end up in front of them. You know that then they go around to the pitchagainst bath and all the bath fares rip off the masks, and then we robbyhandshaw now because we've done so much damage to them over the years that ifthey wouldn't put it past, this kind of thing Robiano Reggie enter runny intoan the rame dream of a team of, and just right, so he's some great matchesto look forward to your your special subject. o T sportseemed to be for sale. Yes, they've invited interest from buyers for thesports for their for bets sports, all theircontent, actually not just the sports and that's kind of got all they do haveone or two other little channelly things that they have so they're,getting rid of all that they're going to concentrate on their network, abroad band, Pen, Co. Anybody is going on it's Gyant,it's looking like Dan or Amazon yeah, because o APA from the parole rights they hold.They also hold a lot of channels really really want. Is They have six? No four, four hditz on the Sky EP and those are super valuable so and they er luck on to them, along withall the rights that they hold. Obviously what's be bit here kind ofjust looking, you know, because, because they give it away free withsubscribers and not making any money out of it or Nothin, they paid vastmane for as a Champions League yeah like. I think it's the only way you canwatch champions Ig in the UK through some there. As you said, they weregiven it away, for I have nothing with people's Brow Band in the house be interesting. I don't know how itcuits actually for thing I neall at it is how it affected the bride and takeup I'm sure it was that it had a Buz, a positive effect, but at the same timeyou know it's a lot of money to be spending just to shift a few rangersmoney. And what have you are we any more gossip asto where we're going to be signing up for our own broad by like season likeARSK gotta BE CON? The pro sixteen does e e a any gossip. Let on no nobody's doing Matin that moment andanybody who isn't talking about it because hey they can't meet people, that's no everything everything'snailed down, because there's no people aren't meeting people companydon't have money to discuss it. Then it like it be a last minute. I I mean lookat Sousan Hemis here you at Super Ruppy. There was no buyers in the northernhemisphere M for Super Robar tour. The New Zealand superum Australian SuperOby is in free and you know they on the web, and so it's like there's nobody inbrick or Ireland who bought the top fourteen there's. Not a lot of moneycould be spent on rights. It does seem strange, though, when you consider thatpeople can only watch sports on TV. They can'tget into stadium, it's saeviant in tune. He does Ye haveone okay, I Jujutsu the Netherby, the worst podcast, the RT won,with the exception of the Lenin, was with hucal an Ane, an a, but he didmention one thing he neglected to mention the Oldster conoma right, sothey spoke for an hour about rugby and he neglected to mention the oldstercomics. I fourteen that which is the best match of the weekend for a and a t yeah, but he did say that an obviouslythey have skin in the game. In relation to freefrar that those Australian TV figures they would tree roof because they wentand free to air and for their super rumpy yea and becausethey are free to air. Obviously, a lot more eye balls on this, and so anyway, he was big up in us, whichis interesting. If I suppose, for the...

...whole six nations thing and was there's no there's no argument to freeto error will get you way more eye. Bobs Way way more. I was the problem.Is it doesn't make money for the organizations yeah? Did you see that New Zealand havesold some of their similar kind of settee? Obviously not,I think, as two hundred million they sold for a onthe, the same, wealthier, deeper, deeper as thepockets fohat just one other thing. I see that the lines have done a dealwith premise for the release of the players and I think promished a Bein a bit RCabase saying. Oh, this is just a one self and we never know this happenagain and there he actually playing the premiership final, the same day as thelines play Japan and Edinburgh. I I it. I think this is is fallen from the lastline, so I think there was a bit of Micky wave and that time as well and itwas never fully resolved and then Lin premise probably said after the lastpays for well we're not going to release our players and that we have toand lines and what you're going to have to, because we are all going toorganize the game for the same days. The premature five, but we're not goingto really say, is when you never have to there. I Atli fucking, adult lads,it's the lions and it's the premiership, you're, not children. It comes in to wonder, though I guessis not how it does yeah, but I mean it's a lion, so you know well yeah. Itis not in short to play for them. You can see you can see it just goneahead as a moral game for the lions, which is what it is we at Pratisraya itdoesn't that happen every time, yeah yeah, I remember we played a profourteen final tetoro. What year would have been, probably he's eitherthirteen or that I was thirteen. I think I was against Ulster and they were training in Carton House andthe lense lads and similars to guys weren't training with them, becausethey were in a Wasawatti can't remember who it was,but whoever was in the final and in two thousand and thirteen, but I rememberedthe they showed a clip of gram. Grand Tree grow up in the stand watching youknow the last moments of the game. You know just trying to get a handleand who was playing well whatever before they before they had it off. Itwould sam case Yo, remember I thousand and nine the players from ten or a monster on the inCup yeah. That was was that the Holocain was on Saturday and I thinkI'll drop the driscol it flew me back to Dublin, dropped his gear off, butbrought his lines here, and the Lester Lesterplayers who were involved in the lines had spent a week in lion's camp the week before the week of the final okay, yeah yeah. Ok, I didn't thinkthey actually went back five. I wasn't sure I do for a thin went out to theline. Now it wasn't training it was like it was like these are yourcontracts. This is your kid here. Your s lines, media policy here stasis andit was like it. It was. There were soft days before coming back to the tenseranless ter, for for her training but yeah they the lines is alwaysoverlapped. It's just the way. It is yeah well anyway, voice thanks very much asever. Thanks very much for watching yeah, no one we have to do ourtraditional match predictions!
