Glasgow Warriors v Leinster
Pro14 Playoff Final
Celtic Park
Glasgow

25th May 2019
KO 18.30

Live on Premier Sports

Well the last game of the season for the Pro14 and I don't think many people will disagree with the fact that the two best teams in the league are meeting each other in the final.

The Ladyboys from Dublin, who think that winning trophies is their birth right and have a trophy cabinet back home which kind of suggests that they might be right, against the Mighty Glasgow Warriors, who may not get the chance of another home final in a citadel of Glaswegian sport, for a long long time.

History suggests Leinster for another win and the bookies, always good judges of these sorts of things would concur. However Glasgow have been in sparkling form ever since their spanking by Sarries in the Euro quarters. Rather than depress them, it seems to have inspired them and they have gone on quite a run since then, dispatching Ulster, Leinster (in Dublin), Edinburgh and finally dishing out a hammering to Ulster, the like of which no one really saw coming, in their semi final. They are on form, are confident and are playing some sparkling rugby.

Leinster, it is probably fair to say, a bit like Ireland this season, have not quite been firing on all cylinders. They to received a lesson from Sarries in the Euro finals and can no longer claim to be the best in Europe. Still despite that, they are still grinding out the results. Munster threw the kitchen sink at them in the first half of their semi but could not get over the line, Leinster won it comfortably enough in the end, but at the expense of losing Devin Tooner to a bad looking knee injury.

So what is the final going to come down to?

Leinster have the big game mentality and are devilishly hard to score against, but yet this will be their third big game in three weeks and what have they got left in the tank if it becomes another war.

Glasgow have the ability to score tries against anyone and Leinster will have to be at their best defensively to close them down. Glasgow will also have the home advantage and probably a much bigger proportion of the crowd, despite an ill judged attempt to envoke a bit of sectarianism by Leo Cullen.

My feeling is that Glasgow have to start well and get their noses in front. Leinster are at their best when out in front and shutting down a team chasing a lead. If Glasgow can get off to the kind of start they did against Ulster and can maintain it, then the efforts of the past three weeks may start to take their toll. If that does not happen though, the kicking and power game of Leinster will be hard to overcome.

Either way a great game at a great venue beckons!

It really was a very tight game that could have gone either way.

We certainly had our chances to score more and unfortunately Hastings probably showed just a touch of inexperience in his choice of options. Those are the kind of margins that decide games like these. I don't want to be to hard on him though, he is developing into a very good player and will hopefully learn a lot from this experience.

On the Hogg tackle, it was touch and go and the card could have gone either way. By the look on DKs face, I think he thought he was getting a red. Good to see him checking up on Hoggy though, we did not manage to see that whilst at the match.

The other Glasgow player, who I thought had a really good game once he came on was Grant Stewart. His arrows were good and he was just great around the park including taking his try very well indeed.

Can't complain about the result though. It was close, but Leinster just played the conditions and took their chances better than we did.

The best part of the game for me was when Grant Stewart flung the ball out the back in celebration after sliding in for his try and DTH just about clobbered him for doing so.

I particularly enjoyed the look right down the camera as he was sliding in - great work.

You can't compare Jimbo to Rudy Giuliani.

One is a barely comprehensible lunatic (who some people say may theoretically be receding in the thatch department although this remains unproven according to his Wikipedia page) who terrifies everyone whom he works for with his badly informed, scarcely credible rants.

The other was the 107th Mayor of New York City.

Yeah GC how dare you!

"Balding" implies the hairline is still in the process of receeding rather than it already being fully receeded!

Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

All is forgiven, GC.

Having looked at the final again, young haircut will be having nightmares

Pass! PASS! Quick, Adam!—An ecstasy of fumbling
Hitting the clumsy Sexton just on the line,
But Johnson still was yelling out and stumbling
And flound’ring like a man in fire or lime.—
Dim through the misty rains and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

In all my dreams before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace
Behind the ladyboys that we lost to,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a schemies sick of glue;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blame
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, lost as the game
Of vile, inexplicable penalties on innocent scrums,—
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,

I thought a dummy was for the best
I sold the jerseys for personal glory.

apologies to Wilfred Owen

Rumours abound. Shocked

Shrek has bought a house in Ayr. Which means that unless he is commuting to Noocassell daily or being fourth choice LH at the Library then he is probably playing at The Home Of The Once And Future Champions.This may depend on his selection for the World Cup squad: if he goes we will be Mother Hubbard in terms of props but then have an embarrassment of riches when he returns.

Matt Davidson and Rufus McLean to sign as possible future replacements for Hoggie and Rhuaridh.

Well lads, it seems the Ladyboys couldn't find any kebab shops open after the final.Shocked
Never mind they managed to amuse themselves anyway; one academy player battered unconscious and hospitalised and one member of the public urinated on in a Dublin bar. That's in the bar not in the lavvy.

Pissing and turning in the widening arc
The sportsman cannot hear the silence;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold his drink;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some common sense is at hand;
Surely the Ladyboys Honour is at hand.
The Ladyboys Honour! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Francis Bacon
Troubles my sight: somewhere in rugby's heart
A shape with cold marble slab body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, trampling all about it
Triumphant and boorish pitiless and drunk on hubris.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That rugby's dreams of a sporting celebration
Were vexed to nightmare by a boorish arrogance,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Dublin to be crowned?

Apologies to WB Yeats, The Second Coming

I take it that it was a bar on the South Side. You urinate on someone in a Northside bar and you're likely to end up having a well deserved rest in some freshly poured foundation concrete.
