Pro12: Ulster 20-22 Leinster ULSTER (8) 20 Tries: JacksonPens: Jackson 5LEINSTER (9) 22 Tries: JenningsCons: MadiganPens: Madigan 4, Gopperth Fourteen-man Ulster booked their place in the Pro12 semi-finals despite their defeat by leaders Leinster in a frantic contest which marked the official opening of the redeveloped Ravenhill. The losing bonus point secured Ulster's play-off spot as they kept in the game despite Tom Court's early red card. Rob Kearney was yellow carded in the first half for his high tackle on Paddy Jackson as the fly-half scored a try. Shane Jennings's second-half try gave Leinster a sufficient lead to hold on. There were talking points aplenty as Ulster prop Court was sent off after only 16 minutes as both he and front-row colleague Rob Herring combined to tip tackle giant Leinster lock Devin Toner. Leinster full-back Kearney then looked fortunate to avoid a red card for his neck high challenge on Jackson while Rhys Ruddock could also have been given more than a sin-binning after he t ...

Rob Kearney: The most relieved Irishman on the planet. Well done Ireland. Well done.
England v Ireland: Ireland player ratings February 24, 2014 15. Rob Kearney: 8.5 Both fullbacks were heavily involved in their sides’ attacking threat, and while it was Brown on the winning team, Kearney scored Ireland’s only try in the 42nd minute, picking a perfect line through the English defence and rounding his opposite number to dot down underneath the posts. 14. Andrew Trimble: 6.5 Making the most of his ‘last chance saloon’, Trimble threatened the line on a couple of occasions but English scramble defence just covered in time. His kick chase is world class, but over eagerness led to the concession of an unnecessary penalty by straying offside at a ruck. 13. Brian O’Driscoll: 8 His 139th international and 63rd in the Six Nations ended in disappointment but O’Driscoll had his best game of the championship so far, starting with real intent to take the game to Twelvetrees and Burrell in the English midfield. 12. Gordon D’Arcy: 7.5 Defeat at Twickenham ended any hopes of an Irish Grand Sl ...
England 13-10 Ireland 22 February 2014 Updated 18:29 By Tom Fordyce - Chief sports writer England ended Ireland's Triple Crown ambitions and blew the Six Nations title race wide open as they fought back to edge one of the great Twickenham battles. Rob Kearney's beautifully worked try had given Ireland a seven-point lead early in the second half before Danny Care replied with a thrilling score of his own to steal it back. Owen Farrell, who had earlier notched two penalties, then landed the conversion before a titanic final quarter saw both sides reduced to stumbling exhaustion by the relentless pace. With both teams attacking in waves against remorseless defences, Ireland could not work the break nor penalty they needed as the seconds ran out. It meant there would be no happy ending for the peerless Brian O'Driscoll - in his record-equalling 139th Test - on his last appearance at this stadium, and no second Grand Slam with which to garland his final season. But for England - beaten at the death by France a ...
Ireland v Wales: Wales player ratings February 10, 2014 15. Leigh Halfpenny: 5 Showed willingness to counter attack early on, after putting a lot of boot to ball against Italy last week, and slotted his only attempt at goal. But Halfpenny was kept quiet by the Irish defence throughout and was rattled by his British and Irish Lions understudy Rob Kearney, who was superior under the high ball. 14. Alex Cuthbert: 5 The Welsh flyer stuck to his wing for most of the match and was consequently starved of ball, but when he did get his hands on it, he was not given an inch by the Irish. The winger was also nowhere to be found when Johnny Sexton peppered the corners with probing kicks. 13. Scott Williams: 4 Williams was forced off early on after he sacrificed his shoulder in the process of clattering Brian O’Driscoll. If Jonathan Davies does not return soon, Wales will once again be left desperately short in the midfield. 12. Jamie Roberts: 6.5 The Welshman trudged forward throughout and occasionally managed to ...
Quote of the day 'Who's Rob Kearney?' Ohh Stephen 😂
Have just seen the footage of the welsh starting on rob kearney. So glad I didn't see it live. Loved Rob's face though.
Paddy Jackson totally undeservedly got what Chris Ashton should get every time he scores a try - well looked after Rob …
rocking the Rob Kearney look tonight
My family is obsessed with Rob Kearney😂😂
hands off Missy I bagged rob kearney years ago!
Resurgent Ireland ease past Wales 08 February 2014, 18:28 Ireland put a huge dent in Welsh hopes of a record third Six Nations title in a row, with a clinical display in Dublin's Lansdowne Road on Saturday as they ran out 26-3 winners. Warren Gatland's men simply never got close to the hosts, who tactically outmanoeuvred the giants in red, and boasted raw strength and aggression to complete the rout. Ireland have not begun a Six Nations with back-to-back victories since the Grand Slam year of 2009, and this comprehensive result will have them dreaming in Dublin. "Well it always helps to have the first two games at home and we would be disappointed not to have four points," said Ireland's outstanding captain Paul O'Connell. "Still it puts us in great heart for what will be a tremendous challenge against England at Twickenham in aa fortnight," added the lock. Jonny Sexton's boot dominated the game, but the performances of Peter O'Mahony, O'Connell, Andrew Trimble and Rob Kearney will give England boss Stuar ...
Rob Kearney defending Paddy was so cute 😁
good man - remember always next time and hope rob Kearney suffers
Great to see Rob kearney sticking up for Paddy Jackson! Sign of a real team!
Dad and mam met Rob Kearney and loads of the players after the match so jealous 😫
BBC News: "Irish in surprise victory over the Welsh" - Shows clip of Rob Kearney in a bust up. A smear campaign won't save you lads!
clearly better team today - but have fallen out of love with gloating Rob and his *** mates.
Rob Kearney is an unusually attractive male
Rob Kearney's form at the moment is excellent after a poor enough few months. Could be key in Twickers.
Yay getting to watch the highlights now! Can anyone remember the last time Rob Kearney went up for a ball and didn't win it???
kidding, Rob Kearney of Ireland is my man crush
I love Rob Kearney. About to box the lad in the face and knock him out but said "No I'll just smile and laugh in your fa…
a bit like beating your three year old at chess though. Let's see if he smiles at rob Kearney.
They definitely have. But Ireland's Rob Kearney (No.15) is by far the best looking player in the tournament :)
Mike Brown is a poor man's Rob Kearney
Rob Kearney gave Lee Halfpenny a masterclass in how to catch highballs today
At the end of the Wales Ireland match would anyone have been sad if Rob Kearney had a piano dropped on him?

Rob Kearney hasn't dropped a ball since puberty. Go on the lads
Rob Kearney is hot to trot.well done Ireland!
I support France in the 6 Nations, but my favourite player is Rob Kearney. Today, the Irish no 6, Peter O'Mahony, pushed him close... The hotly contested and overly congested category of players/coaches/officials whose family jewels I'd like to see dangling from my rearview mirror is still headed by the incomparable Mike Phillips. In fact, his performance today just confirmed that he is truly world class in this category.
Mike Phillips having a go at Rob Kearney thats the most effort he put in all afternoon.
Rob Kearney will get some shoe pie in Cardiff next year!
Aboy rob kearney laughing into jones face, obviously showing him whos boss!! Pound him i say, pound him
Rob Kearney is the best full back in the northern hemisphere no doubts about it not what a game
Cian Healey gouging Sam Warburton's eye, and Rob Kearney punching Halfpenny in celebration of a try. Another good clean game from the Irish.
I could seriously watch Rob Kearney play rugby all day 😜😘
Rob Kearney is the sexiest rugby player ive ever seen !! Beaut 💚
And that's how you smash the welsh. Rob Kearney you legend, backs down to no one.

The ratings Wales v Ireland from Delme Parfitt 15 Leigh Halfpenny 9/10 v Rob Kearney 8/10 Kearney used to be the main man at No.15, but Halfpenny has usurped him in the last year and kept him in the shade on the Lions tour. The Irishman will have a point to prove on Saturday. 14 Alex Cuthbert 8 Dave Kearney 7 Cuthbert's rapid emergence in the last two years has seen him become a formidable finisher. Kearney is, with respect, the less talented of the Kearney brothers. Solid, but unspectacular. 13 Scott Williams 7 Brian O'Driscoll 9 Williams' reputation as an centre of genuine international class is developing all the time, but O'Driscoll is the master, the man who has done it all. 12 Jamie Roberts 8 Gordon D'Arcy 7 Both British Lions centres, but D'Arcy is in the twilight of his Test career now and Roberts showed last weekend against Italy what a gain-line menace he still is at the highest level. 11 George North 9 Andrew Trimble 7 North is one of the most blockbusting strike-runners in the world game. Tri ...
Having recovered from the chest infection that prevented him from playing against Scotland, Paul O'Connell returns to captain Ireland against defending RBS 6 Nations champions Wales on Saturday. Last weekend's late call-up to the starting line-up, Dan Tuohy, resumes his place on the bench as O'Connell is the only alteration to the pack that started against Scotland. The only other change to the side that started against the Scots sees Gordon D'Arcy replace Luke Marshall at inside centre. D'Arcy will partner Brian O'Driscoll in the Irish midfield for the 53rd time on Saturday - extending their world record centre partnership - with Conor Murray and Jonathan Sexton named as the half-back pairing. The back-three that provided two of Ireland's tries against Scotland is retained with Rob Kearney at full-back and Dave Kearney and Andrew Trimble on the wings.
Just watched the match against Scotland again - some absolutely super stuff from Ireland. Jonny Sexton & Rob Kearney back to their form, Murray in total control, deserved return of Trimble to the wing & new soldiers filling the ranks like Generals. Amazing. I can't help think though that Brian O'Driscoll's eventual replacement at outside centre is missing out on valuable build up to the Rugby World Cup next year.

Six Nations 2014: Ireland 28-6 Scotland IRELAND (11) 28 Tries: Trimble, Heaslip, R KearneyCons: Sexton 2Pens: Sexton 3 SCOTLAND (3) 6 Pens: Laidlaw 2Ireland recovered from a nervous first-half display to run out comfortable winners against a disappointing Scotland side in the Six Nations clash. = With Paul O'Connell a late withdrawal for the Irish, Scotland bossed early possession but Andrew Trimble's try put the home side 11-3 ahead at the break. Greig Laidlaw's second penalty gave the Scots hope but Jamie Heaslip's try left Ireland in firm control. As the Irish attack improved, Rob Kearney notched a third home touchdown. Scotland's early dominance of possession against a hesitant Irish side suggested an upset could be on the cards, but the visiting attack had little penetration as the home side ran out comfortable winners. Ahead of his first Six Nations match since taking charge, Ireland coach Joe Schmidt looked to have been dealt a major blow when captain O'Connell was ruled out after a chest infection ...
With the Six Nations 2014 kicking off today, who would you have as you back three? George North, Leigh Halfpenny & Rob Kearney would have to make up ours at Sky High Sports.

Rob Kearney kicked a drop goal to give Leinster the lead against Castres
A HUGE congratulations to all four Irish Provinces who each one their matches during the weekend’s round of Heineken Cup matches. We also extend our congratulations to Rob Kearney on winning his 50th Cap in the Heineken Cup!
FULL TIME! Leinster Rugby have come away victorious after trailing by five at the break. A frantic second half saw both teams enjoying open play. Penalties from Jimmy Gopperth and a superb Rob Kearney drop goal led the Leinster comeback before Jordi Murphy touched down in the corner to seal the win.
What a drop goal by Rob Kearney.if only all Louth men could kick points like that eh Brian & Seamus!!!
Rob Kearney you handsome divil... What a drop goal
Well done Rob Kearney great peach of play box clever now Leinster .
I'll try and not bore my friend Rob Kearney with my status update. But I am at home watching a movie now.
Rob kearney is just chocolate.Yummy.
Heineken Cup: Gopperth named at 10 for Leinster v Castres The Leinster team to face Castres in Sunday afternoon's Heineken Cup Round 5 game in Stade Pierre-Antoine (KO: 1.45pm) has been named. In total 12 players are retained from the team that lost to Northampton in December with Coach Matt O'Connor making changes at 10 and two changes in the back row. After a strong performance off the bench last weekend against Connacht in the PRO12, Jimmy Gopperth starts at outhalf. In the back row, Rhys Ruddock has failed to recover from the calf injury suffered in the second half of the game in the Sportsground and as a result Kevin McLaughlin comes back in after a recent lay off with a thumb injury to take his place at 6. The other change sees Jordi Murphy retained at 7, with Shane Jennings on the bench. Otherwise there is a familiar feel to the Leinster line up with Rob Kearney, Dave Kearney and Luke Fitzgerald as the back three, Fitzgerald having recovered from the illness that ruled him out of last weekend's gam ...
Heading down to Dublin tomorrow with Emma Hilman to the RDS to watch Ulster playing Leinster in the rugby!! 5 big Leinster players missing so hopefully Ulster can get a win although it would have been nice to have seen Cian Healy, Jamie Heaslip, D'arcy, O'Driscoll and Rob Kearney in action.
Rob Kearney, Jamie Heaslip and Rhys Ruddock feature in our three key battles for Leinster v Saints.
Heineken Cup Team of the Week: Round 3 December 9, 15. Rob Kearney (Leinster) Am I allowed in to include the entire Leinster team? Kearney split open the defence on a number of occasions and he was so solid under the kicks that he made his opposite number, Ken Pisi, look like an English cricket fielder trying to catch a ball. 14. Luke Fitzgerald (Leinster) Fitzgerald probably couldn’t believe his luck for most of the game, scoring a hat-trick and running riot throughout. The Irishman seems to be playing some of the best rugby of his career at the minute. 13. Brian O’Driscoll (Leinster) Without a shadow of a doubt. Some said he was too old, some said he should have retired last year, but the veteran put on a masterclass against Saints. He set up two tries and scored an interception to cap of a superb display. 12. Mathieu Bastareaud (Toulon) I’m being a bit cheeky here and putting the big man at 12. Dan Bowden ran him close but Bastareaud was pretty much Toulon’s only attacking threat and way of get ...
Rob Kearney keen to avoid ‘dip’ after high of All Black performance via
Ireland v New Zealand: Ireland player ratings November 25, 2013 Jamie 6 comments healey 15. Rob Kearney: 9 A performance of steel, grit and determination exhibited by his sprint down the line for Ireland’s 3rd try which put them 19-0 ahead inside 20 minutes, an opening quarter that no-one could have possibly envisaged. Kearney topped the stats with 114 metres gained and his defensive work deserves mention too. 14. Tommy Bowe: 7.5 New Zealand being incredibly strong in the wide channels it was always likely to be a difficult afternoon for both Irish wingers, but Bowe still managed to contribute to Irish efforts with a couple of fine restart takes and one interception inside his own 22 as the All Blacks threatened to break through Irish lines. 13. Brian O’Driscoll: 8 O’Driscoll looked devastated when forced to sit in the stands after once again putting his body on the line for Ireland. Up to that point he’d led by example in his last throw of the dice against the All Blacks, scrapping his way throug ...
Best of the Weekend: One for the ages in Dublin November 25, 2013 Ireland seconds away from rewriting the history books One of the best matches of recent years played out at the Aviva on Sunday, as Ireland came within seconds of breaking their duck against New Zealand. The Irish raced into a 19-0 lead early in the first half, thanks to tries from Connor Murray, Rory Best and Rob Kearney, and looked to be well in control of the game at half time, as they went into the interval with a 22-7 lead over the All Blacks. New Zealand are not the number one side in the world for nothing however, keeping Ireland scoreless in the second half, and then narrowed the deficit to just five points in the dying seconds of the game. Breaks from Ma’a Nonu and Dane Coles gave New Zealand the field position they needed, and then a neat offload from the hooker gave the ball to Ryan Crotty, who was able to dive over the line and tie the game. With the clock well in the red, Aaron Cruden’s conversion could win the game for New ...
New Zealand deny Ireland to win 24-22 and seal perfect year IRELAND (22) 22 Tries: Murray, Best, R Kearney Cons: Sexton 2 Pen: Sexton New Zealand (7) 24 Tries: Savea, B Franks, Crotty Cons: Cruden 3 Pen: Cruden Ireland remain without a win over New Zealand as a converted injury-time try for the All Blacks condemned the hosts to a heartbreaking defeat in Dublin. The Irish led 22-17 but Ryan Crotty's try, converted at the second attempt by Aaron Cruden, saw the world champions end 2013 with a perfect 14 victories. Tries from Conor Murray, Rory Best and Rob Kearney helped Ireland lead 19-0 before Julian Savea's reply. Analysis Image of Sir Clive Woodward Sir Clive Woodward Ex-England coach & BBC Sport expert "I think it was important for world rugby because this is a very good New Zealand team but it's not the best New Zealand team of all time, and they're certainly beatable. Yes, they've won every game this year, but I just feel Ireland showed the world you can beat this team. Even with Ireland losing today ...
TRY! Oh wow! The All Blacks have gotten out of jail in the most dramatic fashion! They stretched Ireland from left to right before an off-load from Dane Coles put Ryan Crotty over in the corner in the 82 minute. Cruden misses the first conversion but Ireland charged early and he gets another go and nails it! Heart-break for Ireland and history for the All Blacks! Stay tuned for a report, video highlights and reaction.

Ireland v Samoa: Ireland player ratings November 11, 2013 15. Rob Kearney: 7.5 Sparked into life with an electrifying break just before the interval and continued in that vein thereafter, running some attacking lines and providing an assist for younger brother Dave on debut. The Kearney family will be very pleased with that! 14. Tommy Bowe: 5 There weren’t many opportunities for Bowe to get involved from first phase ball as the Irish pack took the game to Samoa early on, and he’ll have been frustrated watching his replacement Dave Kearney run in two fairly straightforward tries as Ireland pulled away in the final quarter. 13. Brian O’Driscoll: 7 George Pisi had better of their duel in the beginning but Drico reined him in, and although this wasn’t vintage stuff, we can hardly expect perfection of a player who’s made only one appearance so far this season. The tank was running dry before the hour yet he still felt compelled to entertain with an audacious but effective between the legs pass which ...

Rob Kearney is just so hot. Perfect specimen of a man
For the upcoming End of Year Tests, what fifteen would you pick for your country if you could? For my own country, Ireland, I would go with: 1: Cian Healy 2: Rory Best 3: Mike Ross 4: Mike McCarthy 5: Paul O'Connell 6: Peter O'Mahony 7: Sean O'Brien 8: Jamie Heaslip 9: Conor Murray 10: Johnny Sexton 11: Andrew Trimble 12: Luke Marshall 13: Brian O'Driscoll 14: Tommy Bowe 15: Rob Kearney Of course, with injuries etc, the team may be nothing like this. But, should our full squad be available to us, this is the team I would pick
Right now I am improbably close to Rob Kearney in a pair of shorts. That is all.

Patrick Rala O Reilly what a magical evening on Wednesday for your book signing.well over 270 turned out to congratulate and support a true gentleman. Irfu officials in attendance were President Pat Fitzgerald, team manager Michael Kearney, hon treasurer Tom Grace, the players were represented by Brian O Driscoll, Jamie Heaslip , Alan Quinlan, Rob Kearney, Fantastic show of support for a friend to all. Over 200 international games and 2 lions tours completed. Keep an eye out on Against the Head for coverage if you couldn't make it. The book is available in Dubrays and is supporting the Umbrella Foundations work rescuing children from traffickers over 350 so far.
I am rarely put at total ease by a man carrying guns, tasers, handcuffs, and extra clips. But with Rob Kearney it never fails. You are a beacon in the fog, brother.

RaboDirect PRO12 Team of the Week: Round 4 September 30, 2013 15. Sean Maitland (Glasgow Warriors) The “kilted Kiwi” was making his first Pro12 appearance of the season after returning from the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia. He didn’t look to have missed a step, with some intelligent offensive play, and typically accomplished handling. Provided both assists for Byron McGuigan’s tries, the second via well-weighted grubber kick. 14. Alex Cuthbert (Cardiff Blues) Another Lion, the powerful Cuthbert showed both his brawn and pace in attack, standing up Rob Kearney, and powering his way up the touchline to score a brilliant solo try. He almost added another moments later, but Kearney this time was able to bring him down inside the Leinster 22. The Welshman will, however, be disappointed with his missed tackle on Ian Madigan leading to the fly-half’s try. 13. Brian O’Driscoll (Leinster) On his return to the Pro12, the great man showed no signs of rustiness with the sort of classy perform ...

Did anyone watch the Ryle Nugent skit on Mario Rosenstock the other night?" Conor Murray. Gets the ball. Darcy out to Sexton. Out to Mc Fadden. Look at the lovely. Rob Kearney. He's flipping gorgeous. Don't you touch Rob Kearney. Leave that shirt on him. Batter him. That's it come on Ireland." I couldn't stop laughing!
Rebels v Lions: Lions player ratings Posted on Jun 25, 2013 15. Rob Kearney: 7 It was a solid but unspectacular day out for the Irish fullback who managed to make 90 metres but never really threatened too much. Swept up at the back and always looked solid but is in the desperately unlucky situation of having a certain Leigh Halfpenny ahead of him. 14. Sean Maitland: 7 A mixed bag from Maitland who showed his blistering pace at times but was also a little loose. Super support work saw him feature in the build-up to his own try, which he finished well. With Bowe and Tuilagi returning from injury his place in the test squad will be fiercely under threat. 13. Manu Tuilagi: 7.5 Strong surge and deft offload in the build-up to Maitland’s try was one of the highlights of the match but he was well marshalled other than that. Made 11 carries and, more tellingly for Tuilagi, five passes – not a huge number by any means, but enough to be conspicuous for a player who has been accused of just putting his head down ...

5 Reasons the Lions will win the series Posted on Jun 21, 2013 Leigh Halfpenny’s right boot If Folau can win a game for Australia, Leigh Halfpenny can do so for the Lions, albeit in an entirely different manner. The Welshman’s metronomic boot shows no sign of tiring, having been off target just once so far this tour. It is an astonishing record, and in a series that is likely to be decided by the smallest of margins, having the most reliable goal-kicker in world rugby on your side is a huge advantage. To say he is just in the team for his kicking would be to do him a disservice, however, as there is no doubt that when given the chance he is a potent attacker. Sean Maitland’s presence on the bench in favour of Rob Kearney or Stuart Hogg points to – barring a calamitous injury – Halfpenny playing all 240 minutes of test rugby. The pack There’s no getting around it – and as much as backs would like to think they influence a game just as much – the majority of games are won and lost up front. ...
No Sean o'Brien, Rob Kearney or Conor Murray in the lions squad. Did Gatland not see Ireland beat Australia in the last RWC?
Lions' squad to face the Brumbies Tomorrow. It's only a second string side with the big names rested for the test match on Saturday. With about 11 names guaranteed to start on Saturday, there's still a chance for a few players to force their way in. The likes of Sean O'Brien, Justin Tipuric, Rob Kearney, Simon Zebo, and even young Christan Wade could force a spot on the bench. Toby Falateau needs a huge game if he has any hope of even starting the first test which is unlikely even if he does. A weak team to face probably the form team in Super rugby at the minute, so they'll have to be careful. The backline is weak apart from Kearney and the experienced Williams, so this will be a tough game, and I see a first defeat for the Lions here. The player to watch is ROB KEARNEY, still a more complete full back than Leigh Halfpenny and a good performance could force Halfpenny out onto the wing. Team to face The Brumbies. 15 Rob Kearney 14 Christan Wade 13 Brad Barritt 12 Billy Twelvetrees 11 Shane Williams 10 Stu ...
Brumbies v British and Irish Lions: Preview and prediction Posted on Jun 17, 2013 The final tour game prior to the beginning of the test series sees the Lions travel to Canberra to take on the Brumbies, and given the strengths of the two squads selected, it could well be their biggest challenge to date. British and Irish Lions It’s been a busy week for Warren Gatland’s side who, thanks to a number of injuries, have had to call up the likes of Christian Wade, Billy Twelvetrees and Brad Barritt as cover, whilst Welsh legend Shane Williams has been drafted in with the sole purpose of taking on the Brumbies, and allowing other Lions the chance to rest up ahead of the first test. All four of these players start against the Brumbies, whilst full-back Rob Kearney makes his first start on tour, and Stuart Hogg and Ben Youngs get their last opportunities to try and force their way into Gatland’s test squad. They face the talented duo of Jesse Mogg and Henry Speight in the Brumbies back line, and if they can ...
Congratulations Rory Best! He captains the Lions side against the Brumbies on Tuesday! Rob Kearney and Sean O'Brien get starts, and Murray and Zebo are on the bench.
Good performance by the Lions today, a few changes in my starting 15 for next weeks first test. Corbisiero Youngs Cole O'Connell AW Jones Croft Heislip Warburton Phillips Sexton Zebo Davies Tuilagi/Roberts (both struggling with fitness) North Halfpenny Subs: Youngs Farrell Hogg Gray Hibbard Jones O'Brien This doesn't take into account the Brumbies game but not sure he'll risk many of the test team. With Christian Wade the latest call up, things are very fluid due to injuries, especially in the backs. I reckon Rob Kearney will be involved in the 2/3 test just needs more game time.

Rob Kearney is infinitely better looking than Dave Kearney.
Might be enough for Heaslip but too late for Rob Kearney I'd imagine. Sexton, S O Brien and BOD on the the plane.
Rob Kearney making sure the selectors don't forget him
Shane Byrne believes Rob Kearney and Jamie Heaslip are facing their last chance to stake a claim for the Lions:
exactly .. I hope they have the packages for Melbourne - would be awesome
time to plan the where and when and panic about the how much I'm spending. lol
Very true .. First up will be Splendour in the grass! Better not clash although its end of July
I'm not sure I would like the dates & tix dumped on me all at once either! A big tour needs prep!
A month would be a great start! As you said...we can plan then. Can't plan not knowing :/
Yep .. I agree even the month confirmed would be great.
Just need to plan so many things. Evan confirmation of the month would be good.
It's a bit like that. I'm absolutely positive we'll know first hand from when dates are :D
I'm so over watching my email 24/7 hoping for something from Frontier touring. Got a life to live too :((
Pretty disgusting to see POC named in the Munster team while Dave Kearney is still out injured.
