80 words on Leinster's preseason by Big Joe Shep

Big Joe Shep has a go at our 80-word format...

A thought. Pre season / Pre RWC 15 games around the globe are seeing the expected Ireland/Wales/Scotland/France matches plus the Rugby Championship down under HOWEVER, Leicester Tigers are playing Argentina, Harlequins playing United States, Newcastle are playing Georgia, Edinburgh playing Romania, Glasgow are playing Canada, Wasps playing Samoa and even Yorkshire Carnegie are playing Romania………Leinster play Ulster (fine of course) but then MOSELEY!! Is that a test for 3 times European Champions on the way back up? Discuss………...

@bigjoeshep is the Owner and Head of Information & Knowledge Management atDigital Knowledge Zone.   An avid Leinster & Ireland Rugby fan, he came to rugby at the late age of 24, was a tight head prop, had at least 2 good runs in every game and retired at only 36 after 3 operations on his legs and now forms the 4th "virtual" person in a front row each time his beloved teams are playing (much to the annoyance of his suffering girlfriend who has to put up with being "embraced" by the Big Fella at each scrum!!!)
