Rugby hits the skids for me this weekend

The BOD is back (picture )

This weekend I discovered it is possible to max out on rugby, after being goggle eyed for weeks on end during the six nations. I thought a bit of Leinster was going to be just the tonic after last weekend’s defeat to England. Instead, Leinster managed to combine the two worst bits of Ireland’s performance in the 6N, first their scrum disintegrated AGAIN, then they lost to a last minute kick. Add to that Peter Fitzgibbon trailing around in the middle – let's just say he wouldn’t make my list of top ten favourite refs – make that my top 50 - and you get the picture.

The bright spots were the return of BOD, and the full debut for Brad Thorne, who put in a serious amount of graft. That’s about it for highlights. Leinster had every opportunity to put the Ospreys away, especially when they were down to 14, but they failed dismally. Fair play to the Ospreys for coming away with a win.
And that was it, couldn’t watch anything else all weekend!
