Episode 1432: Byrne Baby Beirne, Leinster Platoon, Dashing Earls, Leavy’s Knee, Mayo Happy To Be Happy
It was an utterly brilliant weekend of rugby, with huge wins for Leinster and Munster, and a host of heroes and villains (add/delete depending on who you support).
This gets worse and worse every time you look at it. Awful play-acting from Tadhg Beirne and a pivotal moment in a tight match https://t.co/Rthmv4eJ8l

Just FYI guys.
Beirne was shoved by Shoeman. He appealed (which is making a bit of meal of it, sure) but he fell over because he collided with Loughman as he came away from Schoeman. That’s why he goes flying. You can see the actual collision here, before BT cut away. pic.twitter.com/SAZO8Ht8Xo

If Jacob Stockdale had touched the ball down when already over the try-line, or if Tadhg Beirne hadn’t ensured he got the ref’s attention to an off-the-ball incident, both Ulster and Edinburgh might have semi-finals to look forward to.
72nd minute, game on the line, cramping badly.
Absolutely nailed it. pic.twitter.com/zM1OFYjPtC

We ask Shane Horgan if he’s ever hammed it up… and if he’s ever dropped the ball over the try-line.
Plus there’s Ross Byrne’s platoon moment, Mayo fans in tears in March, Dan Leavy’s injury nightmare, and the morals of diving.

There’s a moral equation to be weighed up as part of Frances’ TV guide to the sporting weekend ????????????

If an Ireland football game is not the time or the place to protest about the organisation of Irish football, when is the time or the place?
