Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

I don't get this thing with POM at 7. There is no mobility in that backrow. Sad day when you're depending on a lock for mobility and jackalling. And screw Harry Byrne for getting injured when he could start at 10, and at least give us an excuse to rant at Sexton starting at 10. Not that Sexton will...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Great to hear Willie. 👍 I remember hearing the hype about him 2 years ago. Ulster have a lot of quality in the back 3 around his age. I think McIlroy is a gem, there is Stockdale, Lyttle, Baloucoune and Lowry. He won't get many chances, especially if he doesn't take them I hope he can get back fit ...
