Still no Coombes. If he played in blue he'd have a number of caps under his belt already. He should be in the squad alright. I’m a massive fan of Coombes but right now Conan and ruddock are ahead.

Re: Jaguares to join PROxx

I’d feel the same about a potential spaguares team as the saffer expansion. I’d prefer a Celtic league but anyone with a brain knows that that alone leads to player drift to England. We rely too much on the European cup to bring in attendances etc. The higher the level our players play at in the pro...

As long as Beirne is playing regularly at lock for Munster, I don't see the issue with the odd game against bigger sides at 6. And given he's already played 6 for Ireland this season, it's clear they're looking at that option. I think in the absence of Doris a br of beirne/Christ/Derek is probably ...

Jack Crowley, being talked up a lot by ROG and the media? Is he that good? Good eye for a gap and seems to play close to the line. Tends to overdo a double pump pass.

McCarthy supposedly returning to Leinster next season. It's an interesting one. He must trust himself to push to the top (/second) of the pecking order at Leinster; whereas, third choice at Munster is the best he can hope for. If he doesn't push up the pecking order for Leinster, it'll be a poor de...

Congratulations Leinster. We played well in a lot of ways but all these matches come down to scoreboard pressure. Ultimately the 6 point swing before halftime was crucial. Nearly never bulled a cow.

Statto is right. The Scots simply need to exclude foreign based players from selection for the national team. Not sure if that's sarcasm but if not, Scotland's problem is only two teams.
