Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Sexton is IMHO our best ever out half.
I’d like to remember him that way rather than watch the long fade (or crash) out that dims the memory of the good times of which there have been many.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

The Sexton problem is bigger than just the 10 jersey. If everybody sees a player playing badly/not resilient enough any more to last until at least half time, it kills squad morale and and creates a culture of mediocrity. Dropping Sexton for even one match would give all the rest of the squad a kick...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

If Sexton is “the best we have” at 10 we are fûcked one way or another. Better to let somebody else have a chance at fûcking it all up.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

It’s reflective of the wider view in the media that there is absolutely no 10 who possibly might replace Sexton and it’s pointless trying them. But just in case anybody might think about it, they aren’t experienced enough. :lol: I don't think people are of the view that others shouldn't be tried. M...

I think the thing that’s annoying is that instead of wishing well into their retirement players who have been brilliant servants to Irish rugby, you end up kind of resenting them for sticking around too long past their sell by date.

That’s not setting the bar too high TBF. Murray is nowhere near his best form. Didn't say that, I said he is playing a lot closer to his best than Sexton is, and that's hardly a stretch. :thumbup: not disagreeing with that. We do need to start moving in though. Neither look likely to be good enough...
