ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This week we take a look back at Leinster's victory over Connacht in the Pro14 Rainbow Cup, foward to the visit of Ulster to the RDS, discuss the effects of the recent law changes on the game and the rest of the week's Rugby news

I in this position, so quick and JohnDave Myself, a Gointo look back over, let's just epic victory againstKonopatin, all the other Rainbow Co action course up forward to a gameagainst Ulster on Friday, nice so jens. I was a bit of a Topsy Turvy game andsixteen mail down after about sixteen minutes and then suddenly we were upafter twenty two minutes, tenty three minutes, and then we ran out ferdycomfortably in the end, fifty points to twenty one. It's a sorry go ahead! Now you go afteryou at before beauty. Okay, what I was going to say it was that it's a measureof how I have kind of switched off on theseason at this age that I didn't even see them. Once again, Isaw the score and I asked you guys: Was it a good game and you said no, as I goright, I A or look at at, and I actually missed the first fifteenminutes of our game, which is probably a good thing for the senso. You know that hasprobably not happened in a very long time. Imagine if you just watch thefirst fifteen minutes in Saim off does happen. I tell it must be fifteenyears since I've missed. You know the Star of the last game at with anamazingly good excuse, and I didn't have an amazing Eglises, but anywayunto the game itself. We really came back and I gave him a good scene to, but in anodd way, like we turned into Exeter return to Jason's favorite team. I juststarted going at the one moot the bus moothie bit so yeah. It was a very odd kind of a game.Yes, you would have said there was a bit of Tis. We lost the like in ourlast gate. Last ending you would have said there was a bit of space in thegame, but there was certain explicat, thebeginning from palks from from cant and Henty shaded rather quickly. But whatdo we? Why do we reckon they? They lost the run themselves, so aready up got anose bleep from scoring. I I did is more the fact that we found the run ofourselves. We started off. I mean okay different.The second tribe was ridiculous. I mean it was it was a city try to give away,I mean it was Unfortin, it was an intercept and all that, so it was whatit was, but we were soaking tackles we weren'timposing ourselves, and then we started imposing ourselves. So I mean it's. Imean it's like the exoteric clicked. I thought Fraley was very good in thatfirst period. He lay that pass and let delay that little Bel pump on the pastwas the thing of beauty, keen and play very well and then, afterthat first mall try. We realize Jesus Lads. We have these boys on toast, let's just get into there, that's justactually we didn't even have to get into there. Twenty two, let's getaround there, twenty two I get some line out and then we just that was hisit's atua rough ewis was actually quite disappointing. If you think about it,because you know kind of had some guys that are quite highly rated in the packand you know Jason's turn favorite player in in Finley Bela. Wait, I mean there there front. Fivewould have been quite highly rated and it was taken a part, absolutely takinga part. There's going to be they're. Gonna haveto have some hard looks at themselves, particularly when the guy that theykind of looked to seal. That up is off in quid real, an I'm sure we talk aboutthat later and obviously they didn't have to land there. But you knowTorbury who's, a guy who's attracted a lot of Colemans. A lot of praise thisyear wasn't wasn't mapped at all in the gameand our back road just were just fire Fracti far more dominant. Wecould even afford, but I don't know if for came at or we could certainlyafford to be careful with a Jack Conan. I think he went off for a he went outfor a IA yeah, but from what I heard he passed or but they decided enough torisk them yeah. It was interesting that I, but we hadjudge I just to Finch, that we had just Anderlo the bench. We were able toshift Scot petty to umbrage yeah like they took him on fairly enough. Theytook them off after twenty four minutes, so I'm not sure, like we kind of gotour foot back into the game, I think it was one thousand nine hundred andsixteen or something at that point. So an you mean like it wasn't. We hadn'twalked away with the game when he got injured, but thankfully, anyway, he'sokay because be terrible to see him. You know Miss Ouge on his on his linesto on line store yeah but like I was always intestine that they took offRusper after fifty minutes. Fifty five minutes you know and ring rose wasended up shifted into a ten. I don't know whether Ross was injured orwhether it was a precautionary thing,...

...because Frawley was gone. We know sexon's Gone Harry burn is at with a hammer. You know what I mean. So ifthey've got to play the rest of this tournament, there poly saying well,we've won the game at that point. After fifty five minutes a is going to won.The game was the point and risk in our only fist or one of our top, our onlytop of the top four O haves anous. They still have Harksh, but he's fifthchoice. So you know, maybe they just took him off as a precaution. Icertainly think so I mean I think he from what I can make out watching him.He certainly hasn't been comfortable on that leg for a while. He wasn'tthinking either sure wasn't no, no. He was initially, but we see it. We startin the extra game as about some of his, his gag did not look comfortable but,as you say, the opportunity rolls to take them off really so they took himout for a plus. You know not necessarily I mean normally, I'm not abig fan of switching players into positions just to see how they do, butI would have been interested to see ring rolls at ten yeah. I don't I just.I didn't think that's what happened there. I start that I no! No, I don't.I think they took. I think they took burn off to protect them. When I amsaying I was interested to see, ring rose to yeah yeah, I think one lab like we could youmentioned there was, was Sam kin, an like t, he's got a hack and he said hedon't sport, one one other try from Inster, so I mean, if you're going toyou going to do it, you might as well come back with a bang there, like I sayhe must have felt slightly disappointed because he featured in allof Ireland's games since the return after the we're going to play last September- andyou know he played fairly well for Ireland andobviously he's played in an play them say playing for for Len Stories got tothis win in the League and get in to the semi final of Europe. I'm sure hemight have been a little bit disappointed that he wasn't included iton that door and I'm sure he'd be one of the first names on the reserve list.If they need somebody to I'm, not sure he's been a red Le forthe lexicon to be yeah. Maybe that's is taking him as red. You know I mean andhe's not Scottish either and there are few self trauen of guys whomake alliance to straight out the bath on the first season. A fen of I mean you can probably handfulthat you can remember, but that's about it. So I'd say the tour probably camebut to the TOR came too early for him and to lay for James Right yeah a far enough too early for thelakes around and color and yeah as if there was. If we're in Gushin wasthe Irish coach for the last five years team lay to go. I do an light, have hada shot because he would have seen them up close and personally, I would haveknown what they pay had to offer. I mean, I think her a can is anabsolutely great player. He has an understated ability, likehe's not reading the same kind of players, carven dempsy, but he's he's. He does everything so well. I Oh youknow. I suppose he should expect that from any player at a professional level,but he just seems to be so sure play and so yeah everything about.I never absent them and I do think he I did. I do think he could have a cooledas jet of it when he was rushing out for that last kind of tray yeah. Well, at that stage you know weprobably lost a bit of concentration, but yeah look he's like perfect, butbecause I mean he's very, let me say it's his first year very assured andbecause it makes makes no climbers, you know you often see players and the like.I've Raaly seen a metebalon and I do think that's a very good sign of a fullback who's great positional sense that they know exactly where the bold kindof fly to you. No, I don't I'm M very happy. We in very happy with hisprogression this year he's been one of the success stories of the season andis only at the way he gets through players as well. Like he's not, hedoesn't look like a guy who's, a naturally gift, an athlete, and youknow in World Ruby terms. It doesn't look like he's. A He's. is every he'svery coltish exactly yeah. Is He just? Has that a commitment and be, as suppose,attention to details of EM, I can't can't quite define what he he takes. Ittakes great lines yeah, so I do he takes lines that guarantee that givehim a chance. Like I say, maybe he's not I. When he's up against you knowwhat we'll say our superior physical specimens, the line t take it takesgive him the edge against them. Yeah is the friends Bakin Ber approach,yeah, I'm not the fastest relate to be, but I never started a lay. I I wish wecould get the ball into his hands more...

...frequently, because I think you justalways en to make yards whenever we do get the ball, whether it's for ourlumberin ter, we just so. I think I think I enough if, if you think backover the same with the last year year and a bit since you've beenplaying, I think you'll find that most of his re, like his is his most Icatching prodicus of come with Fraley etcetry with that with that second distributeor slightly further edge, he really takes adventus that, like theprime, we saw against Kinoo the weekend was a classic example of him runningoff the second receiver, Yeah Yeah Oooo used to do that. A lot is workcoming in yeah, going into the the way you did at the right place at the righttime again, positional, not starting for me, knowing where to be known,where the bore is going to be mates in defense, but I take as well a govermentthen to go at the end of a lot of Trois Rigar was involved. You know comingrunning into the line from full back and he wasn't the first, as canactually Europan is quite fast, but carven denty wasn't the firstest can,but ever in the shift. Take it a sin to compare a yeah ter an go goodshift. Yeah. We haven't made up a sign about him yetso he still has a bit to go yeah or a T, shirt dog. That's not my. Do I just a I s like toI'm just be a hulk so, like I mean but like that realshouldn't really have been in that when you think that there would say fivestarters, the was three has. I was five starters in the match. I played in theCup semi this tree that were on the bench started and, and there was a rakeof them that were on the bench that played astarte in the the previous weekagainst Larisa, like we put out a very strang team and I was quite surprised,I thought we were going to go nearly for rotation and play squad members.You know and give everyone a chance at the end of the season, but the've.Actually, the management seem to be taken set me under a selection from hisnectin point of view, taking the tournament reasonably serious, as wellas nothing else. Wot E MOO yeah. I know but, like you think he might say: Well,we've been playing cup pretty consistently since September. You knowwhat I mean like most most leagues are kind of finishing in May, anyway, we'regoing to go on until middle of June. The lines are going on to August, just like an er back in presumbly September October. I think that what we'll see is because ofeverth guys that have a certain amount of layoffs during the season andfurness for rast reasons. I think what we see is, I think, forthe remain, certainly for the for the alster game as well. Maybe for theGlasgow game, we'll see a continuation of this blended rotation policy. Can we call atashed that we saw for the comic game yeah, but they were all first teamersDave with what I'm trying to say there was no. I was no kind of young academyguys like if you go trig a team, do any tracy port or oh yeah. I ony party, youknow H, I mean like so we play it pretty much if we have a squad of saythirty. First teamers: That's where that's the pool if they came from, theydidn't go down to the twenty bur, twenty or thirty below that these wereall guys that will be in the of the depth chart of the o from one to tremembers that these guys, we taking out the the guys were off to the linesin the Irish. If you like, first fifteen guys, there is a similar program for thenational team and players have to be kept ready for that as well. You knowyeah, that's true, yeah yeah! Absolutely you mentioned earlier about Queen Rod.Quenus obviously was after the contract ly, conet bus declined US and he wantsto to go off somewhere in France yeah. I think I like my thinkin is likeI like when real a lot, I think he's really good player. I think he's theonly player of his type, really an Irish Ruby, and so I think he s, Ithink it's a quiver. He should always have in your Arrow or quiver. Youshould or later should Al have you quiver Jesus turning to perty earn here.I think it's a Areson. I was having your quiver, but if he's not going tobe getting Irish caps and he's going to get more money abroad and he's thirtyand he has to start looking, you know, what's he going to do when he's thirty,four, so blae I mean he's, had he's been here:Nine years he's won a Grand Slam, a challenge COP and a couple of profourteen. That's pretty good on Yeh Yeh gave well well, and I I heard I Joshi was a big Fan. Yeah. Iheard him on a podcast there, maybe...

...about six months ago, just ringChristmas and he came across the very genuine down tar. U and he was Tonosparents and- and I think their parents are brought over. You know just to sort of as a surprise,firm or something like that and connected something like that. For everits hundred, I think, was his hundred apparents for them and yeah. It waskind of a nice touch, Bush yeah. So it's sort of a sad seeing go that heobviously came to Leinster first when he first came over and he only lasted acouple of seasons and the madow connor didn't fancy the money sent him time toconnus. I think he stayed up to say that say down there, like a few other guys, I think cony didthat something similar so and I a Bo Jumel to leto Color Struga Anyway, we moved on from him Ha we he'sa guy. I would have kept quin room if it had it been possible. We we have Damian Brown and we neverreplay as Wos farely kind of fulfills that role, but we never had that kind of tank yeah anyway, which my the best ive seen fora future. I think so, somewhere mabe going to to lance a bad place, to spenda couple a couple o years a night that, after delivering that Ground Slam, Ithink all of them can do whatever they want exactly so just looking at some of theother fixtures, a monster of you mentioned this John Wasn't a great am Iactually recorded us, went to watch his felose after a quart of an hour, walk atin, the coaches half three in the morning, and that was the end of myviewing of a Bush m. But this monster seem to walk away, pretty handy winners.Thirty eight ten and I didn't see the incident, but Ibelieve will addison was definitely deserved his right hard. Ohyeah, I was a red card, some bunker S, no question of it. It was. It was a stupid thing to do. Possibly a guy has been out with thegame a long time trying to hard when hecomes back, but it was just to and there's a lot of dom in that ostersquad and it's players of all different sorts.You'd, wonder is the Dome coming from the top yeah we, we talked ate more indebtabout Oldster, because obviously we're playing on up next and on Friday, nice,but like they put out a pretty strong side and fact about again out sideswere quite full. You know like there was a lot of big hitters, I'm both on both sides selected, and you know I'm kind of glad,because the tournament is getting nothing but negative press from everyangle. where I mean it's, even supporters wouldn't have a big buy infirst. Certainly the media don't, but it's actually good to see them pickingfirty strong sides star stronger sides than you might see in the regularseason, interpres, especially the ones over Christmas. So it's actually goodscene. Let's say somewhere between ten and twelve ofyour first lines like have a mass. But, like you know again, I mean youhave to look at the names I live on. The Monster Team like they can coinscannel Ryan Burn my honey, combs, Murray, J, J, Conway, Holly I'llstarted, and then you CJ and Lande, and the bench like that's a belly good side.Yeah so there's there are strong teams and Mons were much more honest. Theywere much more clever or how they went about us. Obviously, the red card had an effect, even even the twenty minutes of it thatit is now. It still had an effect and Ulster were just dom yeah yeah. We got to get with a more indepth about them. We were Talaus going through some of the other games and I mnot sure if you saw the debray Benneton game, I did. I thought it was a greatgame yeah. It was a very good game, but etain game rugby and a hilariousdecision. I'm not sure if many thing when they when they did the re, thechallenge- Oh yeah, so they did the captain's challenge andI think it was a zebra wanted to challenge thedecision. So the referee said well. Actually, story is now that youdeliberately collapsed all and it's as a pen to try. So they kindof they actually end up shooting themself in the foot. They got a playeryellow carded. They were worded a penalty, try against them. So there wasan automatic seven points, rather than just the five that they are originallychallenged for completely went against them. That was,I just be careful what you wish for...

...with those captains challenges. It wasan entertaining game. Lobe with you know the a the right amount of spitethat you'd expect for local Darby Yeah. Now I enjoy it. I have to say Glasgow and other local Davy Glasgow,Edinburgh, fifty cuffs on that one as well. What do? What's your views on theTwenty Minute Red card? We kind o like it, because red cars ruin the game. It's agood thing, but because red cards are in the game, just Tifila, you know somebody has ared if it's a real red current offense, you know. So I'm not saying it's anunequivocal yes from me to the new row, but, like you, do feel a especially ifthe red car happens very early, but it's a huge punishment for the team andif it's a red card, that's kind of Bordelin out would have been O or ifit's a second yer, the turns in door. Right, although that's like you tohappen too early in a gay, it really is a big punishment for theteam so to be able to bring up another player on at for twenty minutes it just maybe they need to have a third card,which is you know, leave the red card alone and call at thing some othercolor card a day, ca's black hard plus t exactly. Would you be less equivocal if theinstead of twenty minutes? It was thirty minutes like how far back into the game was it. Youknow, I mean thirty minutes if it happens in the first half yeah, but if it doesn't have the firsttime to hardly any point we had. We had a situation in the card of dragons gameright that there was he, I think it was thedragons scrum half was going up the sideline Kardo guy who came in Hijas.We stole her to to the Chin. NAXA was Lake Loxian into touch fine cardol getsa red card, did already had a yellow card. Obviously, the yellow card comesback on for twenty minutes later the red card comes back on and then card ofback up to their full. Compliments of players in the last minute scored a tryto win the game against the dragons, and so you know what it were like. Ithink that that obviously could have still happened if the red card was an adefinite red card for the game court because they were back to theirfull compliment in the last few minutes, it was fifteen against fifteen and youknow pard of or old for it and they scored that tried to win win the game.So likand, I think like say it was it was kind of it was a dirtyact like do you remember, there was remember the jared pain and I, as anumber of years ago, against Sarasins, where he went up and caught the ball inthe air and who was a wood Alex good, is good, camedown and landed and landed awkwardly or badly and pain. God got a record likethat. Wasn't a malicious piece play, but a guy running over and lay tackingsomebody and plucking them in the head kind of is so you know you like there's sort of the certain timesand so the peers like say pepe, for example Peter Amanyon in the in the sixnations. I didn't think that was a particular the malicious piece of play,and maybe five years ago, wouldn't have even looked at, whereas you know because of the way they were,Ruby wanted to be prefered, it's a red card and you can't really argue againstit. But if this ever even I got you if you saw harlequins fall back at the weekend athis name, a Bra, my brand, like my brand stamped on someone's head. So Ilike that's- that is a deliberate piece of file play, that's a red cardin anyone's language, and I don't really think that that's the same assomebody who I you know, I don't know like even the even the card- one, forexample an like he did, hit him legs, but he hit him with the shoulder to thehead. But just kind of I don't know what are you?What do you like, as you said John and have to because I get a red card for to separateincidences and they're very different. One is a malicious piece of dirty foulplay and one is just away. The rules are interpreted now as opposed to theway they wear a few seasons ago. It's Perfay Vatapi Jake. I couldn'targue with any of that. I I can't argue with a red car had beena permanent player off. I had to argue...

...with a red card been you know thetwenty minute thing for the reasons you've all said and in the cases you'veall said I mean, then what it comes down to is you have a situation wherewe say that there's an extra card, it's up to the referees interpretation, todecide whether it was we say, foul play or very fell play,and that's and that's that's a love to put on a raft. You know I mean okay inthe one I know in the incidency you gay from time o the jar pay a one versus wesay the the Mike Brown one. That's easy! That's those are the two kind ofextremes. If you like the red card, that's just more orange than red,whereas the red card, that's flaming, scarlet e. The truth is that in the vastmajority of get of decisions around red cards, red and yellow cards, or soyellow to red cards and may cards and actually tactually a caught, that's theproblem that there's a lot of, but the re characters a lot of gray areas, butI like it is like sort of committee now, because you've got the two touch:judges, the referee and the tmay kind of coming together, viewing theincident and then they very methodical and how they go through it.You know what I mean because there's obviously decincy far more red cardsnow than there used to be because they obviously want to clamp down and Itackle, but they do seem to go through us and say well, let's have a look atall. The angles was er intent, you know rather tawniest get in the rush ofblood, so just as rather than referee, just get in the rush of looks to thehead and flash in the cars. What they do have the framework, particularly for high tackles, whichthey can, which is a step by step process. You know you love and hearthem say was it? Was it high? Yet it was, but then was. The medication wasthrough dropping high clover only, and that's literally like, if you ever haveit open in front of you. When one of these things as happening, you canactually said you go go through and that's in a way. That's a good thing,because the wreck knows exactly where he stands, and he knows that this iswhat he has to do or what were rol. We want him to do in every singlecircumstance. My big fear is that the red car twenty minute red card wouldencourage more red cards. Yeah. I caposele there isn't the same consequence, lady by Ingred, more I ad,I'm not saying the players will be well. Players may were, the two sides of ourplayers may well be less engaged with the safety of other players and restsmay be less concerned about giving them yeah. But I don't, I don't think theplayers go out to purposely. I don't know no, but sometimes you see a so sometimes there's or reckless as to thesafe lavette players, but you do hear Aberin a bat, but youdo hear players given ouse to other players for getting a yellow card andif they have to play for fourteen men, for you know ten more minutes, then you know what I mean like it's,not that it's kind of a slap on the back here. Listen that was a nice bitof dirt play you did. There was well worth ten minutes like the players.Don't think it would like that s. You Played Against Barn Hall. You know thatthat's what the O, the worst one was the guards I played against the guards,and that was a dirty match. I've ever played him yeah. So just go. Look I suppose it'sgood to see it been trial. You know, but the said Africans do notlike the captain's challenge. A number of journalists this weekend,or this yesterday today into African newspapers, have complained about thecaptain's challenge they just don't like it. They thinkit's stupid. Well, I think this is how you use it. Imean like Luke Marad. I got wasted his you know. I mean like the when thereferee gave the referee gave con of to try and maybe he was trying to stem totie that day. We'd just gone sixteen nail down, you know we were been kindof overrun after the first quarter of an hour, and maybe he just wanted ahope against hope that to put his finger in the dike or thing but ike, the referee was standing rightbeside us, but he was him that made the decision because he called it on thepitch. Just seems I don't Wan and the reft talk three it.It was obviously not anything wrong with it like. It was obviously thecorrect decision yeah. So I'm surprised that that arealso have been used at so often in the way they've been using it becausethey've been you're not going to get people yeah. You know we all know whatwhat the people of old Er feel about. CATS, tired yeah, but I'm no, but it's T, I'm not sure Ilike it, I'm not sure, I'm not sure how...

I feel about it. It's one of thosethings that there are elements of it I like because you know it gives theplayer some sense of control other. It's that I don't like becausesometimes there's an awful lot of you know like like the Liceo graphing,which was a bit city. Maybe though it was a tactical thing, he was justtrying to stop play for five minutes, get the lads under the post and sort ofme, but on yeah away, just the other game wasstares again as pray. You like the dropper. Can I say I like the Trappist Yeah Yeah, it's Ruby League. Isn't itthat's what they do for a believe when the VOS Talapolin yeah, I mean it's like when you see yougot, you got to be sure where you're going to put your wit, your drop kick.You know, because if you see big lads the wrong, if it voles the wrong set ofhands- and they can get a thirty meter, run up to defend in line like they canmake in roads well, I would have liked. I wouldn't like to be trying to stopAbraham Papiete. No, we re in as definitely not just a drop. I think, if you're a team thathad a ferocious crop it made like getting held up and get straightby up scribling over the life like you would absolutely services or exitesomething that would actually be to test that really because they havesomebody on toast an theroot. They have to run a back from you know. I thinkthat real is designed to stop that like to exactly as you're saying and to stopthe You know, like all clubs are using now. Exeter probably were when thefirst week kind of followed to taking those top and go penalties, and you know there's repetitive. I think Ithink World Rube wants to make the game more free flowing water and just have slowed down to morrow after morrowafter nor did they Breid they bring in the twentykick in the end. No that's in this competition. I would have liked to seethat I think that could have created more space and make the game more freeflow. They they, I think, they're still triling, is in Australia. Aren't theyokay yeah? Well, I do there. Obviously theirseason now is going to go transitus, so I think they're. Actually, in thatcompetition I think they're getting rid of caps challenge the captain's challenge.Air is a sort of hemisy thing. They almosttake it to other yeah snatches get dicho. It does kind ofslow up the game he GIV men O matches. I was watching and it was my God. Ohyeah, that's a! I was thinking about that because I think the back captain's challenge Iwas on the Welter Games. I was watching and like it seemed to kind of take a little bitof the impetus away from the till get involved, because you know if it's really bad there,their captains challenges got in a common place, so I don't need toJudicat here I want and I con specifically what itwas. I think it was in the car, the dragons game. I remember think formyself like quite like, if that was in certainly most of the I M Tigne this here, a lot that hasbeen a lot of Irish darbies. Therefore, with Irish referees, I'm watching thosegames, the the TMOLUS intervene, far more than whoever was the t mo in that part of dragons game thing I dependfrom. I don't know if you guys have been watching. Have you been watchingthe said African Rain Book Opera, but is there was a one of the Games at theweekend? There was each team had about four or five success for captainschallenges. Are they having ees one at? No? If youget it right, you keep it. Okay, I didn't realize Oh yeah yeah, ifyou make, if you say, if Lutaga made, that Captain Challenge Right, yeah andthe rat had agreed with them or the outcome had been that Luke was rightand it wasn't a try. The tenser still would have had their captain'schallenge. Okay Day, you only lose it. You only lose it when you lose one yeah.So I, but in the game and said Africa, both teams are getting them right, allthe time and the rest were going with them. So, but I I on say I the saidAfrican teams look in fine tattle. They do and they paid some really nicerugbys well. Yeah an I'd be great to see some of those dadums for when we play next season because theystoan casks a full set, a full strike. Lester I mean I don't know if it'llever happen, go down and take on the blues or or the sharks or whatever andsee those great grounds filled. You know, like, I think, that's a pro robber, whatever its cause theyneed to. If they want us to get off the ground and get off the ground with areal bang at the start, they need to...

...work with all of the unions to saywe're going to schedule. Some big fixtures like and it all dust like allrespect the other clubs, but there's certain big clubs in this league andthe Certin there's ones that aren't and but they need to say we're going to,and let's say, four teams down, said Africa like sayit's a Glasgow, I'm picking one of the Scottish one ofthe watch teams at a at SIS Leinster, a monster, I'm not going tosend them down together and it's going to be a little toward a thrall going toplay wild er there down in Sad Africa every week. But it's going to be at a particulartime in the season when Leinster and those are the three clubs will sendbounder strongest or you know like no full load, he the their first, let'ssay, go down and they can play three weeks at four weeks in a row on a manytour down there and they'll all be full strang teams. So that the SETARIApaying public will all buy in, hopefully there bar containing for themand that they will say well we're watching gurring well, and you knowwatching the fellers. You know a lot of those clubs linesplayers play instead of sending. Then you know for like good players for LeYears and everything they would know. They wouldn't have a clue who he isyeah and I'm the same quid pro well yeah. Of course, yeah. We Tak. We seethat the the least, for example, yes, cales and and create like all the they,basically all the stars, mony staying all those guys yeah, I think that's, I think, that's veryimportant for the promotion of the League yeah I mean like it was excitingwhen, when the kings and the cheaters in particular cheeses are,but you know I mean it was a bit of sacco when we went down there.Obviously, with I think I was east, I wasn't es, didn't have as a passportsyeah, but like that's fine, okay, that's the main thing that they weren'tused to and I polwill never happen again was. It was kind of disappointedwhen you went down and you watched it and telly and it was quitedisappointing cries. You know I kind of looked slide watching. You know it's like another pro fourteengame. When you see the Half Empty Stadiums in Wales or in Italy yeah, asopposed to a been ultimately hyped with all of our stars, going down there andtaking them on and making us a real. You Know International Fixture of thetrute clubs. The skills are there in European will be in terms of promotion.I mean they turned. You know in twenty five years they turn theEuropean cop into the biggest competition in Norton Amiserat right. You only have to look at at the at thecolumn, inches that of minorities fort, like Ireland, I, like Robekin Irelandduring the six nations, the marketing and promotion skills are there inEuropean robe what he they have to be packed up withfour straight teams to go down good avised Africa and cars of boards andbring the Sad African teams up here and cause ables yea. Definitely but like Imean we've been saying for years that if, let's say Edinburgh plane, Leinster,alright, why don't they schedule those matches that stay Edinburgh againstoster or I hadn't bring ants connect or Edinburgh against monster or Lemster?On the same weekend, if they're going to play a match over the the island,Scotcher the Tournin pair them pair them, like we saying this for years andyes, there could be, you know, lense could be playing at home. Again. I,like obviously just four teams from Marland, so it just takes one to goover to and even have like just say, Linster played against Glasgow on Friday night and if you weresaying we go well Mac, you know what I might go to the told me an hour on thetrain away. Even if I'm staying in member and Michel, I can glasgo go toon the Friday night and got on the train and go back to Edinburgh and goto the Ireland game on th on Saturday, like it just doesn't seem to put.Instead, they have both of those cubs could be playing away from home or youcan't go either because you might have gone over to the international like itjust doesn't seem to doesn't seem to be any joined up thinking when thefixtures are done, that it accommodates all these localArbis with matches that are you know I'll see, you could turn every week endinto a massive festival. A robe in terms of you know the national team,the under Tis, the women's and add some of the provinces involved. We have ahuge festival, Ruby in creative soul. We play Olster, we kind of spokebriefly again as oldster just when there the defeat to a like they put apretty strong team. I just went through. They had Henderson Murphy, Tamoto,Matheson Larry at Exallsky, Addison and...

...stock, to like that's a pretty goodside and like they're no last tree on the banks. They were bitten by Leicester, monster and Lens by Leinster in the in the A inster yeah. They lost her last threegames. I think Easter dig. I was the last kind of the loss to go pile lost to lister, andthen they lost the monster. Yeah, that's a yet was. I was kind of fearingthat would happen at US losing three in a row and I would havehad to turn the day. An to em was the last time. Lester lots three in a rowGod it must be a way to go. Meadow color days, perhaps hasn't a three.It's a title: Oh Shit! Okay! No! No! No! It's not! No! I like it. It was twothousand and ten thousand and eleven name that couch cogeret. He lost a dress number that it a yeah is first, she lost his first threeor four games. In fact, we so but look. The thing is aster, I think, have the playingchallenge. I think that they actually I mean okay, I'm not saying that thereAnster, I'm not even saying that they're, you know monster in terms ofattitude. I think they are better players slightly the monster, but there's something wrong there,there's just something: that's not right. We saw it against Lester. We saw itagainst monster. There's a huge an of stupid in that tea. I heard Ferris given as yards aboutthem, and I again he's he's going back to that. Chestnut of you know they'renot from Ulster, like I'm, not sure. If I really agree with that, becausethere's you know like you've got Leinster who adhere tothat model monster, try to the obviously bought import and but veryfew other teams in world on by have and all local boys club. You know I meanit's not the Lisbon lines anymore. It's the teams are made up from lots ofdifferent places and lots of imports and from different nationalities. Ithink that I think that he's looking he's looking for an answer and I think it's finds. That is ananswer, but necessarily the right one. There is a problem in that alter team.I'm not saying it's, probably the dress, room or play with problem with theplayers, attitudes, or I think with that- not saying that at all. But thereis a problem in that team somewhere in terms of the the the teams attitude on the pigattitude. The Rub word because you know they're just really stupid and I think I think the part of theproblem come. I think it comes from the top which felt like to get rid of Lory the.What's what was his name Steven, the guy who was running the? What wasn'treally a robin man that was running presence but yeah, yeah yeah, like areally him, I s, CIS, Tilker people, you would say at the top or having got rid of so what top is it?But let it it with there's a thing: you got to choice the if you keep changingthe culture and if you changing the management and the results don'timprove which they haven't, then what are you going to do? You know have tosack all the players as that's not good. Well, at thatpretty much happens anyway of a regular basis and especially in th. They dothey do it on them over, but the same things keep happening again. Sosomething has potage somer, but they like in Farnese. They only lost twomatches in the regular season of the pro fourteen or to Oh. No, I do, as itwas last season right there, both against Leinster, they they were beaten at home by to lose nosorry Ted with a big Waif, yeah, there're Bein, a way to be in the homebites lose and they're beaten, a way which a game they definitely shouldhave won against Gloucester, but they seem to have a problem of winning the harder matches like they can go atone beach, plago and Edinburgh and dragons et ce. But when it comes downto us and like you know, this isn't a new thing like this has been going onfor practically the entirety of lot of the last decade or probably fifteenyears fifty years, because I will trophy anda look in years since the on a Toke but like in the big games. You know likethere were. We mentioned it briefly in that match. Ter and Jad Payne got sent, got sent offagainst Saracens. They had a home quarter. Final admittal Saracens were avery good side, but they at home quarter final and they blew us. Theygot a guy sent off in the first four minutes and they were, you know,running up hill from for the entirety that match they. They think thefollowing season. They had another quarter, final against Saracens, andthey blew that as well and they got to the final and in our twelve we know wetook the bat that year we beat them in...

...pro for ten fro, twelve or whatever. Itwas final in the ORDS O. I think didn't was at Glasgow, beat them in a final aswell. Now, maybe not nature, actually amatter of Han but like they've lost and they last asgonna beat them. That's got bet the in the year that we last year, my Ocana at my class go beatthem. I think lascope monster in in in all state Pansy, but he blew yeah er moor bud you where we came six yeah, but we've beaten them in umpteen. You knowbig games, whether it's semi finals or finals in the last last seasons, a bovefourteen, so like they never they fired one shot yeah, and that was, if like they are,they just seem to be unable to get the job done, and I don't know like how youfixed that mean, but that needs to be seriouslyaddressed but they've, like you know, they've gone in and they've got a coachlike say da n Peel as an assistant coach, but they can't manage to hold onto him he's gone. I mean that they get somebody we've gone through. They hadlet us kiss there for a while they Jano Gibbs there for a season. You know like they. We used to thinkthat we had a high turn up turnover of coaches in the notes like they've had apretty similar amount. You know like it was interesting to see that saywhen John Ol Gibbs was coaching at Lanctre coached under three differentcultures, and you know that he was. He was here forsix years, so you know like there was a longevity of a career that somebodyobviously came in. Quite well and he managed to grow through us, was he just?He wasn't like here for a couple of seasons like din, Bel and okay, he'sgone, but he's gone to bigger, better own and in Scott and in Wales, was likeall of that. Is that knowledge that he's built up his gun, man from master,and they have to start with somebody else, and you know instead of gettinggrabbing and getting six years of his of his knowledge, a of them we've gotto start with somebody else now. I think they've, I think, is this weekend at other Mabel knowwhat like on change anything well, you know, I think, for the good of theLeague. It does need other clubs to be competitive in is, doesn't it yeah? No,it does yeah look for the good value rely. We need them to be competitivebecause, as you say, Jason were like we get absolutely hammered because hemeant to players, we lose, but you look at that Oor team and there'sgood players in it everywhere I mean they have the they develop prettydecent players, not as good as they think they're. Not all as good as theythink they are, but you know they developed some pretty good players. They brought in some very good playersbrought in some begood players from around Ireland, be guys like JordyMurphy. Was it like? I was. It was a European cop winner, Jack Mc Growkayhe's injured, that's fair enough! Marty. More is a really good, really good.Prop they've had no connor there who funny? No. I was talking today earlierabout m the under twenty world cop back. Youknow ten years ago, when Steven Kito was playing against to furlong andkitched already played a bunch of super ub Uti for an was redily on now and fora long co completely dominate em. But you know in that in that team, in thefour five and six were on now conner ti burn and in Henderson that kind of shows thatthe quality of those guys who've been around for a while and do have thatquality. You know that this guy like for me they thinks Gotali an awful lot betterthan ears yeah. Well, that's that's a minordetail in the that's! That's one thing, but I meanand they produce cool players. I mean you live with the guys. Who've come outED. The Ulster System in the last ten years right now mid of the most of themhave high numbers, but you've had a stockdale BALICO Nevin spends. Heshould not be named the other one who should not be named Maclay Farel lot of good players in the in the backsalone, and then you know they've had Henderson and a couple of ones in thecord, the last the last the last couplethrough injury ere, but you know they produced enough players. I mean it'snot like the t t their academy is AA...

...complete, fair, but whatever happens tothem between coming out of the academy a put out of the or on the trades andgoing into full to fresh, a ropy. Something's happened to them becausethey never did don't like look mash. We saw it remember. We saw lot machinesfor that came in the VAVER and this go be new. A driscol yeah, never stopthere like an unbelievable formats, best player in the pitch by quite someconsiderable distance. Now, okay, very unfortunate in injuries, but at thesame time they never they never extracted valuefrom him at all. You could never say that he exactly a hundred percent andhe never seemed to fulfil his true potential. You know he's probably gotat the top of my head: Fifteen Irish caps, the Kishon have fifty Irish crapsyeah. You know yeah, it's a tough one for them. I meanlike a girod nut like they had four guys that came to that Jackson. Hementioned Henderson huge Gilroy and osee neven spenser. No, no, the fellowwe were just talking about there like racial, no marshal, like those fourlads are outstanding in the hundred twenties match or on the opening day ofthe V, the four best players on the pitch yeah and they were paired withLeinster, okay, and there was some good good players from Ester as well, andthat's a was nice to Tacoma. Yes, that one- but I mean like, likethose those guys, are read the Ossola and everybody talk that they push oneven two thousand and twelve when it happened and they got absolutelymunched in the final people like well. These there's a good core of youngplayers. There they push out, but then, of course, the whole time with privatelaston happened. Nobody really sure why that happened. They'd already got ridof you know the most successful co coach in word, rube in in in Ma mical or one of the mostsuccessful coaches and were Ruby. I mean he didn't last all that love there. You know there's something. There'ssome something is rotten in the state in something as rough in the stake.Lash Yeah. I want to see. I wonder, though, like are we just judging itfrom lant standards and we have been just so over successful over the lasttwelve or so season. s Go to Bodenheim say that you know there are fourteenclubs in the league and every year for the last four years, torten of the movebeing disappointed less for a wonder, fucking me so, like the thier, thething is, the thing is John for just fourteen clubs in the league, thirteena and disapointed or thirteen o ther have been disappointed only one or twothat I be disappointing hm. That's that's what I I the I my family are are from a driver.I have a certain you know emotional tie to the to the province, and I just don't Tan that that there'ssomething wrong there. That's I I don't know what it is. Idon't I'm not saying all the cultures right or I'm not saying all the playersare on, there's just something there that you know. I wouldn't trust analter team when the chips are done, but they definitely have an inferioritycomplex plan. US, Oh yeah, an I'm. I mean the seasons ago. We played wasps andCoventry and the night before we actually went to watch Lester AgainstUlster and Welford road. So I knew half of thematch: Postin an dress in her lens terger hand to drink and, like the lastthing that the Alstrom wanted to do was play Leinster like they were terrified. You know I've got an. I think we endedup playing them in the quarter final that year. That's when stuck to droppedthe ball over the line, but they were absolutely terigny. That's that samegame. Yet, but like the Olstein and not the players, put the Ostra fans weregoing. All lads go easy on us. Now this kind of crack come come. You know like the more concerned of a of playing an Irish provincial side asa as what happened on the day, because you just think that every Irish side isgoing to up the ante play the gans against each other hay against eachother. We were looking a win on the tetere at what I'm just saying that theoldster fans were had no self confidence, that their team would wereshe not mean if we go away and we even if we go we're playing Larisa like it,was an air of confidence about us two or two es ago there was yea and I werekin o say we should win by five point: Seven points whatever it was. You KnowMe. We were confident that we were going to win eleven eleven La Yahoos.Like you know, I don't. I think if it was anold diversion of this and they were playing the lavish on or Leinster nextweek. I just don't see that they would have that same level of optimism. Yeah, no, I mean d. The problem forthem is when they play well, they lose...

...and when they play badly, they losebecause they played rely. They should have won that, as you say that Quartianand they played really rely mad. They wish a better team of the day and theylast and that kind of feeds into it that whole cyclical thing, but I thinkI I just think that there's something this. If I were a sport psychologist, I wouldbe setting up a practice in Belfast because I reckon there's money to bemade there yeah, but, like I was a wee Osterman as well. It's from Troy, yea,it Emitah, he might be a fair gale job may be the wrong kind of Osterman toget the olster Tam ticket. You Reckon Mi wouldn't suggest that now it victenday, you can't be saying that Wullie, I remember I don't know, maybenearly thirty years ago, Jim Staples Ye full back of time clament, I lone theMariage Haquin just before one of Bee Irish, one of the Irish internationalshe said, but Ireland are beating before they go on the pitch. This is in theearly eh so psychologically. That, like I mean that's your one of your betterplayers as turning around and saying. Well, you know that was the feelingwithin the dressing room, that before we were out under the bitch, forwhatever Rene you feel were be to you know, maybe maybe there's some sortof psychological damage that the deal at a o. Who knows it's slightly worse overthis weekend? That's that led in the in God will beearning his corn. Then Day is what you're saying I was. My practice willbe Russia I'd have to in you offices, okay, I'm just a bit concerned aboutour our selection aid have because if we only have one there's no choice,a Wato rust burn was injured if he wasn't taken off for as a precautionlike we're down to fifth choice, now, Yep we're in the Hawk shot, Corkery Pool O fleers grosses, okay least hopehe is otherwise. We are in trouble right,wonder as well as sexton like. I know he stood at a concussionand you know that's awful and the guy has to think about his health beforeanything else. I know the presence to with the otherthan those, but you have to think there was a part ofthem hanging in for a lines call, and what will that changes will he we hit?Let Er go to as he led her want to get playing those. If anybody slips in toshow or on a live ter he's going to get on the plane, you can demonstrate hisfitness, or else you know if that doesn't happen. But I weally weally have secondthoughts about play on next year. Who knows there's lots of I mean whatthe thing is. I mean the team that the squad that starts alliance to ER. Itvery rarely bears a huge resemblence to the team to finish as one since thegame since the gates gone professional. I think it averages that at six and ahalf players are called up for tour and that doesn't include the proximity sixor job if he six, where you want to call them. So there's a lot that there's a lot ofguys, who I say are not exactly you know, thrown away the address of theTropical Medical Bureau for sure you know not just not just inIreland but across Ireland, UK. So anyway, we do have Kalen, Doris backfor sure they say, although we did pull it and worm up the last in one and whowas Tomoros, there's plenty of Ryan year returning to training, they willbe assessed later this week. I thought they were. They were good to go and itwas exeeding is because I have the page open from the from the fixtures onsecond o Brian Daras, back training ahead ofWalter test hope to resume full training this weekafter recovering from their respective industries and pride O goes well bothhope to me mangle for some action for Friday's game. So give me a Brians to player. I like alaugh yeah like Tommy and Jimmy both good players, but as he quitCanada's I mean if he'd managed to stay. Fatere have been going on the linestore. I don't think there's any question was yeah yeah. He was expense, but he was your head o and another player en to it's going tosay possibly, I Colin Expense because Colin wouldn't have had the gametineidae at stayed fit. Maybe I don't know, but I mean Colin, but I slain theline he's been excellent. He really has, and he was accent. He was one of thefew powering to accommodate those two players like. Are they going to moveone of them? Ere Gon ensure on of them's always injured, but like whatthe teeping something...

...it's not two players, three players at least believe ye next Dagan as well.I mean, I think, much that hae to see the eleve.I think we have l one of them. I have to at least one of them will have to gobecause it's sactly in the Irish team and he good to have an having one ofthem not playing at all. One of them played limited and the other you knowbeen away with the ars squad, O okay, they can. They move one of the one oflike darest to six well Jack Hollins played six Max. Deganhas played six, so maybe that might be an option. The only thing is: There's aM Rodocanachi proficient at six. I think Josh Murphy is a really goodnumber. Six, I think, he's a real real player for the future M yeah. Well, it's hard to know anyway,it's good to have those problems, but I is your right. I think they will needto do something or they would be told to do something yeah. Well, that's a! Ithink whether what answer wants to do and what what's best for ours will bemy sure it might be at odds, but hats best is all be. We probably should winout, but even the players themselves might say. Well, you know I want toplay more frequently like the same ax Dagan my day, what you crise, the twoIrish number eights are in front of me, and one of them is now a line yeah. Youknow, I that's that's tough, that coming back from injure like ten, I gota nine, they came back and this has happened. As I often say, one of theelements have been a professional player is playing professionally yeah. That's it yeah so like it shouldbe a good game, but I suppose it's. The ball is in kind of, as just court isn'tis like I mean they've got to if they they suffer another defeat, myGod like that would be OBE cause you mentioned. I could be coaching for onevents yeah the thing about this. If also get a good team on the pitch, youknow they're good enough to win. You know we have we'll have to I mean ifwe're at our best. We will win but they're good enough to win. So you knowthe thing is that that's the it's all below the neck, they haven't won in double. Are theyrarely win in Dublin? They might have won this a yeah. I twenty two handthe or something Ess, or somethinglike that yeah, that's the they don't win in double. Even when Dublin isRaven Hell, they don't win a dollar e. They have all outside Raven. He because it cafe, came taken them aswell, so they haven't won outside the problemand of even yeah exactly jus tole ye rules are worse, records are made to bebroken and an they are good enough, but I think I Imean if I were picking an altar team, the be changes I'd make to the backline, which were just trying to shoe horn inMadigan in there somewhere. Well, the first thing I do is I tried shoe Hornstumpless out, I you have a toe in there. I'd also sayto stop to love to work at number. Fifteen hope you enjoyed it. It's nevergoing to happen again, get back on the wing where you're a world class player and put will, as in she's Gone T. I'd have I'd, have Larry or I'd have Madigan orI'd. Have you know anyone stuffed out, so I thinkthey lose a lot by having stopped a a for back. This whole idea that he getinvolved more. It hasn't happened. What he's done is he's running he's runninginto his nearest podmore. That's all! No! That's! Okay! He's retainedpossession of the ball, but he's not that's not why they're playing on afull back to play or a fool back, because they think he'd be like like abigger taller, stronger Christian Colum and he's not he's like a bigger childor stronger rob Carny, which you know is a good thing in terms of what a fullback should be do, but in terms of what they expected to do very differentthing. In doing so, sticking back on the wing put Michael Lowery there, yeahyeah a time since I played fiftene O, seems a long time since he's playedfull stop, there's a long time since his playful stuff, and I just don't ifyou're brisants, behind a litter, almost teenager and Micali and bittybirds as well. So that's not a ringing endorsement. That's two differentcoaches in two different Globes and is...

...such a pro is such a great kicker. It'son tire to see, try to put all this together and I gonna. Why is the guy inthat? Why has the guy US developed devote his round work, but was he notcut more game time at the club? He's been yeah, it's happen because I look he's a goodplayers to God, proud and his God guy. So it had up another young player oldsfor rot. This year is blay Macro's, right, hal to player Yeahlin, compare the production line orMoster Bat. They just made a few brutes in the inthe pack. The like e look at the latest crop you mentioned Larry, you betchange home. You've got pelicon. You've got teter lad on the way. What's hisname maccari little there's two more. I wasn't even thinking of what the its alitter guy as well there's a shit to the anyway to doesn'tthe the guy who's, the I'm not sure, is the Irish recordholder or the high schools record holder, the hundred? Yes? Yes, yes, yes,yes, I sexorama he's. He chose Ruby over atlantics at maybe kind of e. We Ithink you might have got Intu a atte ravens. I think he did okay. Anyway, look we see what happens onFriday nights also on Friday nights months to comics, I'm looking forwardto those two games, but before we've kind of run over a bit here, but if forlucky on the accurate plans, I look Wendy Yeah. Well, hopefully he staysinjury free. You know you love blond. Now I m I just I mean at time anyone talks thatguy's coming over and project players and they're only in e for the CAP andthey're only in it for the money UNDICI. The perfect two word answer: Yeah, he loves IT IN CONIC doesn't meanI'm sure a bigger offer is to go eater to different clubs in France, or even you know, I'msure I I'm sure there was a this potendo regret when but landois whenyou just a, let me yeah but may be to stay he stayin kind of a so a bit of itand like us, tentie players have managed to extract themselves fromcontracts and move elswhere like you know that I mean what Sol a bit of apop by Pat Lam, you yeah, but like, like you know you kind of socould say, people might have a criticism of quen ro, but the fact islike it. No No, I know, but some people, Nice, you know grabbing the caps and go,but he has said he wants to come back and you know when his time wherever hemoves to his over, he wants to come back and raise his family, and alwaysso that's you know ringing endorsement of someone. That's settled into thecommunity and in I'm the podcast of I hardin. He said, like he kind of Said,live I've lived in Ireland for a turn of my life. What a big chump ofsomeone's Ye nine years nine years is not fly bynight M. it's not even very slow, walk by night and you and you think, likeyou, leave when you're twenty and your parents and your grandparents are allespecially when s like so far away. It's not like, I can just jump on aRyan Airplane and go back to see my grandparents in England or whatever,but a inn, but like he's, come a long wayfrom from side Africa that your grandparents and your uncles and alllike coming are all getting older. Your parents getting older and he's decidedto move here for the last ten years and wants to come back and settle and goaway when he's done so like I think you know you have to sod of you know dot. You have to invest for us, the You love this horse and virgin toshare the six nations. I that saw that whatever ben or I like, for, I think,Fergan coverage in six nations of the Exanthema Yeah. What is coverage rugby is trite and cliche ridden and they never met astereotype. They didn't like and didn't like to trot out on a regular basis. So I'm sure hopefully they get all theway games that we can watch on BBC or you TV or I v whichever, but you know all those guys that kindof devil or to roll, be coverage and damage the game for so long. You knowthey're all gone they're, all retired. You know the only one. That's there isdarel been, who I actually quite like I've Rene a couple times is a nice guy.I don't make. Sometimes you can give it tonight, but but I'm I'm scream, but asbeing he's a nice guy, I don't know. I love those guys who work in Pondere noware all free lancers anyway, so you can find out. You had to say on an everychannel. You know a brag and shaggy and and Ferris a Williams veris every week,whether it's Orty or thing. So I mean, if fair, to start to ventur media- andI was not over the trout when they got...

...the gate, but they did a really goodjob at the last we said, and they got absolutely genomaen figures as wellyeah. You know it's amazing. When you do see the yearly do figures over. Wehave far O many matches are up, in the top say, twenty of of top Cup five yeahto five, even yeah yeah few and it's great to see. But you know, but thatgoes back to what I was saying about. The ability of Irish will be to promoteitself because it is a minority is port, but for that month it's all aboutrobeing, arent yeah, and if you can Butilin some of that expertise inpromoting the pro fourteen, it would be nice. It would be nice, and you know Iwonder what they're going to do when when fo fourteen contract comes up, Imean, like I haven't, heard anything ofwhether it's going to be the word is guy is that's the word Bush I mean there's not, there's not awhole lot of players and less somebody comes out of the blow. I mean Air SportEr on a gone but was ptor looking to shift on their sports chanels, get themoff the books so whether it Cos sky or something Idas, Dan, who are trying to get into European market or Amazon who trying toexpand or sports portfolio. It's hard to know, premier sports or PrarieSports. Don't e a Galotti Irland, because there had the right with herthat will change whether they kate them. I mean there are options out there Imean at Eco, come in with a bid, God forbid the Gki do a pretty good job. You know they do do they do commit tothe Games. People complain about it. Oh it's in over, but I mean they committhe Games. They do a good half hour. Forty five minutes before and good halfhour, forty five minutes afterwards, you know they don't skin upon the underproduction value. So you know there are options out there. Everybody wants guy,because sky are perceived to be kind of the home ruby since their time withsuper log and stuff like that, and they don't actually have any ruby at themoment except for some stuff. So they want a winter program. They have Mashya,they want to win, that's all they have. They only have summer rope. No, but Imean as though, if they do have the lines it might push them. You know tothe where you might take up a s subscribe fan. Might yes, heinscription to watch the lines and then you go well. Look the pro fourteens onfor, whenever complete back in September, with three quarters of theline, squadon yeah or to thirds or whatever. So I mean yeah people, people like sky, for I mean itcould be anyone. I I'd say to find a broadcaster. The question is whether itbe a broadcast that pay cause vs want their money M. I wonder if I I wonder if they're like a few yearsago, they seemed to do it on trust. Remember they had like the sort of theregional BBC channels and that Alba B C Norton, Ireland and Babs Wales, and atso as EST for se, has for se yeah t t that was the TV rights were owned by regionalchannels in entirety and all those region channels. Then you had ort andyou had tescar exactly yeah. I want to tell me that again I don't know itseemed to work. The last I mean I was a bit questioning, wheer or not. We'd get toactually see some of the Games but ferners. I can't remember if we're notseeing an inster game, yeah well good. The advantage was because for the BohonGames we act them yea, yet you would have to be, but there was also twochannels here in Ireland Republic off to watch them and then for the waygames. They were playing the teams that were be called covered, a broad anyway,so yeah yeah. So we see I'm just one of the best. Ireland have an Anser togoing to play Japan and USA in Lin in lieu of the topijis. Well I just inthat could be that could be a very tricky fixture. Fine, obviously Japaneof played the lines and there one of match. But Ireland are going to be shore anace of their of their lines Yeh. So we saw how wegot out when we didn't have too many people miss in the interesting to see yeah and justfinally before we go, they have announced the further fixtures of the the pro fourteen or Proto Rainbow Cook.So we've got half fields to match with by week, then we have Glasgow Aways, no yes star away and then we'vedragons at home, yea, so yeah. It just seems strange that theyput a bit like had a by week in there and didn't didn't, have another fixture,just yeah, I thes a reason. First, don't see what the problem is.schedulely goes it any one cares no, but but like I mentioned it Ay theclub seem to care because they're actually playing their full renti. Oh,no, no is the idea that that the pro fourteen sent out the the you know thefixture list and then just as they were...

...reading the it Oh shit in a hole inthis somewhere, but I hadn't even noticed. I know Idoes seem but like I I'm sure it must be. They probably did e exhaust a possibilities of trying toguess fixtures with the said that that wasout of their Hadad. I just put the Kish under old lands yeah and then what wasleft was a bit of a disaster and a P or disaster, becausethey obviously cut short. The regular season of the pro fourteen early gotrid of BREITNAL. That kind of up to ring. Yes, so like they're between arock and a hard place, and it it was a. It was a sticking class for trying tofix a massive gash yeah. But the thing is I'd rather have it this as we'rehaving now we have some games to water at the rug yeah. Absolutely this. Thistime. Last year we had nothing to watch were watching reruns of Tiger Cano of my cooking. There you go, that'sexactly what we were doing so look it's better than nothing Eris, absolutely great e, and that note,gentlemen, is one thank everyone for watching thanks for much Dave and Johnfor contributions, and if you follow his Facebo twiter or you, so these guyslike subscription and tombs up.
