Preferably a Kiwi. It is an outsider. Maybe it should be an insider. Is it, really? Farrell was part o...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Ross Byrne lacks the agility/athleticism. We all know this.

We all know his brother and Frawley are better players.

How long will that realisation take to occur to the coaching staff? I hope it's not longer than they take to replace Murray & Sexton.

Can they just stop playing Sexton & Murray. It won't be a cure-all but I mean c'mon?

They're finished at this level. Probably done almost two years at this stage.
