Rob Murphy is joined by Niall Moran to discuss the season ahead in Leinster’s Division 2b.

We’ve had plenty of discussion on the site around this Division, many people’s favourites appear to be Railway Union but Edenderry, Guinness, North Kildare, Athy, Arklow, Balbriggan and Swords will all have their say.

    As a Wicklow RFC member I was very impressed with Arklow at the weekend. The new coach seems to have worked very well with them. Although its early days their defense was tough and we srtuggled at times to contain them in attack.

    they have recruited well in the last two years-
    Stephen Snell- Clontarf, Greystones and Irish colleges
    Richard Murphy- Old Wesley last year
    Mick Kavanagh- Former Trinity Fullback/wing
    Joni Butterworth- Leinster Juniors and Greystones

    Among others, but I think they will be hard to beat for most teams, especially at home. somewhat of a revival it seems..

  2. Iv said it in previous treads that arklow will be very good this year. I still fancy them for promotion.

      portlaoise pushing hard to bounce back, lookin forward to trip to mullingar are there many wilsons lads playing there now? played there years ago in school nice spot

  3. BlueArmy says:

    Very impressive result for Arklow!

  4. big ben says:

    edenderry will have a right good crack at it this year, donie mullen doing a good job there and they can only improve from last year, they should def be in the mix

      big ben has obv been helping himself to the missus brandy bottle if he thinks derry will manouvere their way around that league. itll be pain the whole way through. milnes idea of a rugby match is 16 big men pummelling into one another until someone breaks

      • big ben says:

        to be fair milne is doing his best tho they could indeed try spread the ball a bit wider, by all accounts there were serious fitness issues with certain players and very poor training attendances at times. this year so far ive heard he has used the stick rather than the carrot so hopefully that should pay dividends

    I was at the Arklow V Wicklow match. Arklow looked pretty decent but are very dependant on 3 or 4 players. Wicklow played great rugby for the first ten minutes and the last ten minutes, in between they where pretty poor.
    They blew at least 4 easy try scoring chances and missed 4 kicks in front of the posts.
    If Wicklow showed up they could of put 40 points on Arklow.
    But Arklow were definitely the hungrier team, and i think they will have a pretty good year.

  6. midlandsmarauder says:

    Arklow have a new coach, Pat Collins..Think he was involved with Munster age grade and then Greystones as some sort of coach there.

    They have had it tough in last 10 years with money and players leaving etc as have others but it would be good to get the traditional tough trip to Arklow back for the likes of Enniscorthy and Tullow

  7. goodwin tyres says:

    longford/port for promotion this year. could be a tough year for monkstown they have lost a lot of players

  8. james says:

    port lost their coach and with that all the direction they had..promotion…seriously? Longford, tullow, carlow and clondalkin will be top 4 without a doubt in any order..the rest wont be able
