Diarmuid Connolly is joining my old club Donegal Boston for the Summer. A great signing for the parish :+1:

While I truely wish him well, I have to honestly say it hurts to think this is his best option.


#1929

Don’t know much about rugby but would think set plays are much easier in rugby than football just because there is more potential for positioning in football, that could be my lack knowledge too.


#1930

There’s also a lack of a direct marker potentially blocking runs etc. Far harder to orchestrate set plays after the initial kick out.


#1931

I heard recently that a rugby team (worth its salt) could have over a 100 different line-out calls. Which got me wondering if they would have a different set for whether they were throwing in from the left hand side or right hand side of the field?


#1932

" a hundred different line out calls" seems phenomenal !


#1933

sure they’ve feck all else to do all week.


#1934

That’s why all them boys go to private school.


#1935

I know for a fact that several clubs in Boston were wooing our Diarmo. Big shillings involved.
I wish him the very best but he will be a marked man on and off the pitch.


#1936

This will not end well…


#1937

I fear you’re right … I hope we’re wrong …
