Tu'inukuafe hammered him in his first international scrum on the weekend. Hames in his first test season ground him in to the dust on the EOYT last year and Slimani copped a yellow card for his troubles.

I'd go Furlong regardless


He got eaten alive by a 23 year old who doesn't have any scrumming chops to his name. Good around the park though; although not as good as Tupou, who also happens to be able to do his main job (scrummaging) exceptionally well.

Furlong should play in the backrow or something. NZ will skin that pretender.


Lions series proved otherwise.

Deserved a nibble though.

Here is Tadhg dancing to the famous Katy Perry song with the swish swish and dance. Same as he’s doing above. It became his thing for a bit.
(2nd video in the link)

He’s a bit of a character which is nice to see.

:thumbup:

He had a massive clear out against Conway in the Pro14 semi. Sent Conway barrelling over backwards.
That pocock one is immense, though. Pocock was already low and latched onto the ball and just got rinsed.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m no1 furlong fanboi, but with a clear run up most props would shift pocock there. That’s no slight on Tige.

Ah yeah, he has the physics on his side. Still good technique to get it right on target. Was very important given the influence Pocock had the week before.

Getting there was excellent work. Love the guy :thumbup:

Another fact about Tadhg aka “The Dukebox” aka “The Mayor of Wexford,” (that’s his home town), is that he apparently likes to wear Gucci shoes with no socks.

All that just makes me laugh. :lol:

Can we just change this to the Tadgh Furlong jizzfest thread.

Some player and only 25. If he keeps it up he'll be the first prop to win WR POTY.

Two things.

Pocock’s technique is phenomenal.
He’s already jackalling as Henshaw hits the deck.
It could be argued that he’s part of the tackle and never released but that might be a bit harsh.

Furlong’s clean out is like a runaway train hitting a car stuck on a train track crossing.
He just lifts him off like a fork lift.

That was a real statement to dissuade Pocock.

Fair comment ... but now post the YouTube clips of Pocock getting shifted out from a similar position ... it ain't so common ...



Still trying to figure out why Pocock was not as effective as the previous week. The Irish guys all played the week before and knew they were up against the Pooper ... was a change-up in intensity all that was needed ? Then why did it not happen the week before ?

I am still keen to see a properly fit Leavy make the side this week and see whether he helped tip the balance in the first half ...
