Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

The winners in this series could well be the guys who weren't there. The covid closed shop squad meant that the provinces could give developing players a good run. Coombes, Casey, Healy, Penney, and a few more have had a good run and proved their worth. Some of the senior players will not be return...

Lowe should not be there. As previously mentioned I hate the concept of poaches, but would now question Lowe's committment.

My understanding is all the negativity around him starting for Ireland has really got to him. Quelle surprise. It is mostly driven by the scarf wearing super fans who want to pretend they were watching rugby when Gunty mauled 29 players 100 yards down the pitch to have us beat Wales 4 points to 3, ...

Naming him captain when he was playing poorly was a poor mistake. Continuing to start him and keeping him as captain is a bigger mistake.

Ryan has been the worst of Ireland's locks by a non-insignificant amount over the last few weeks.

If Schmidt was still the coach, I couldn't imagine Lowe seeing many more opportunities as he would have no time for a lazy winger who can't be arsed in only his second cap. It looks like Farrell might be of the same mind.
