A Lot Of People Unhappy With ‘Unsportsmanlike’ Leinster Behaviour In Connacht Game

‘Bad form.’

Connacht captain John Muldoon couldn’t have asked for a better send-0ff yesterday, as his side absolutely hammered Irish rivals Leinster 47-10 at the Sportsground.

Muldoon is set to retire and take up a coaching position with Pat Lam’s Bristol next season, after playing over 300 games in an incredible career for the Westerners.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I expect it, 47-10, Jesus! I thought I was in dream land when we won the Pro 12, but this… It was some performance by the lads,” Muldoon told TG4 after the game.

Two tries each from Niyi Adeolokun and Kieran Marmion, along with one each for Ireland internationals Tiernan O’Halloran, Bundee Aki, and Caolin Blade ensured a complete and utter rout in Galway.

To cap it all off – Muldoon converted the last try, ensuring he ends his career with a 100% record from the tee! And in truly classy fashion, he even apologised to Leinster for the kick, insisting he meant no disrespect.

“On one more note, I apologise for taking the conversion, it wasn’t meant in a bad way.”

But a lot of people feel it’s Leinster who should be doing the apologising, after they charged down Muldoon’s kick – rather aggressively. With the game over at 45-10, and only a few minutes on the clock, many feel they showed a legend of Irish Rugby a complete lack of respect.
