Apart from.Luimneach, there isn't much difference between Munster and Leinster.

If Clare could turn this around with 6 goals a d beat Kilkenny in the 9th minute of extra time, Cody would never forgive them.

On a good day, on home turf, Ireland playing well can have realistic ambitions of beating NZ, if the tourists don't fully perform. Touring in the Southern Hemisphere is two steps up.
It's also a good barometer for how the team might perform in a WC.
It's the equivalent of a hurling or football challenge match. The only thing that matters for Ireland is winning a QF
They'll only win a QF with a lucky draw though. Most times they'll be up against someone better.
Scotland got Samoa once to get to the semi. Ireland never had such poxy luck.

Senior hurling

63 That is Sheehan's final act as he is replaced by Dave Heffernan.

65: Heffernan's night could be over already. He gets smashed in the tackle on his first carry and looks unsteady on his feet


67 Heffernan has picked up a knock and cannot continue. Sheehan returns after a brief break and immediately concedes another penalty in front of his posts.

Wow!!

NZ are backÖ
Csrbery needs this.

I think this tour is a great idea.  It's  not about winning. It's about finding out where the gaps are and working  on them in the run up to the RWC

With Brexit costing 4% of GDP annually, increasing inflation and deepening downturns plus volatility and inflation every 2 years , Brexit is a waste of time.
The gobshites who voted Leave will not benefit from it.
for Ireland , things work out sometimes

 And, beneath it all, is the Unionistsí conviction that they are losing every battle. The Brexit they backed to loosen links to the Irish Republic has instead weakened ties with the UK.

Kk won last two Leinster finals - the games that would count . The round robin is warm up to these two teams.That is with a perceived bad kk team. Honestly the familiarity isnít working yet. It should have been with kk on the wane but itís not.

Kk for their weaknesses were last to beat limerick and realistically no one has any chance against Limerick so not sure the relevance.
they beat them in 2019
KK win leinster and get tanked by Limerick. So what ?
They haven't won an all Ireland since 2015 afaik.
If Shefflin makes progress next year and the year after, Galway will win the all Ireland before Kilkenny

Still can't believe how calm Nugent was when sent-off, it still was only a matter of minutes after he was told in the dressing room.  You would be livid, watched the footage again and kept my eye on him throughout, not one tiny act of aggression out of him.  Same with the Galway FB.
A synchronised sending-off has a different dynamic to an individual one. There was a balance to it on Sunday and no team had an advantage because of it

It doesn't have any different of a dynamic to each of the individuals though and whether someone has an advantage or not is up for debate.
If just the Armagh victim had been sent off, the game would have been totally different. The GAA needs to start thinking about in-game governance for melees. It's literally a free for all at the moment.

Irrelevant if they are getting beat by them.
They aren't, actually . If you go back to 2016 in the Leinster championship, the score is 3-3 with no meeting in 2017.
Kilkenny and Galway are on a similar level.
Galway are playing Limerick and have no chance. Neither would Kilkenny. They are a long way from 2015, even now.

At every choice, Johnson has refused to dilute his Brexit vision for the sake of the Union. In the current row over the Northern Ireland protocol, which creates a trade barrier between the province and the rest of the UK, he could ease friction by adopting EU agri-food rules in the rest of the UK. But this would effectively kill hopes of other trade deals, notably with the US

Why does being in Leinster matter as to whether they have a fear of Kilkenny?
Familiarity. They play them every year.

I remember in the 80s talking to PJ Molloy who played on the 1980 team that won Galway's second all Ireland. He said that the only team they were afraid of was Kilkenny who hammered them in 1979. He got a lot of satisfaction out of beating Kilkenny in the 1987 final.
