No chance would he be in the squad if the only way to get him on was to put him on the wing. No point whatsoever

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

As soon as they said on commentary they weren't showing a replay of the Leavy incident you knew his career was at risk. I'm not too confident but I hope for his sake he can at least return to provincial quality.

At the moment, only Furlong and Ryan although Furlong seems to be perma-broken. Could be a transition couple of seasons for Leinster and Ireland it seems.

And the Ringrose love is too much at times. Forcing him in the side instead of Darce at 12 :lol: :uhoh:

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

After more thought, I'm not happy with Cullen and MOK in the second row. Toner has to be there if we're going for longevity. Hines or Ryan if we're going for quality (at least a full season to be considered in this regard, hence Thorn wouldn't come into it)

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

On the Leinster XV debate, it really depends if we're valuing longevity or quality. In terms of quality, Hines and Elsom have to be in ahead of one of the SRs and Jennings. Strauss was a lot better player than Cronin for a few years too
