Re: Irishers-Official 33rd Dáil Éireann election thread

Fine Gael have been far too soft. To mention Corbyn for a second time, he was practically given full induction in the RA and Al Quaeda by the Tories for shaking a few hands. Not saying I like that style of politics, but the fact that FG havent been able to drive home their achievements since they ca...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Porter might be an option at loosehead? Healy was dire on Saturday. Hope I'm wrong, but not sure he has the legs for test rugby anymore.

Wales will munch us we're as static on Saturday.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

So Healy, Henderson, Murray, POM and Aki have to go. Easy enough fix. Just needs some balls. Delighted for CJ. Played to his strengths today I thought POM played well. Only Stander played up to scratch in the pack. Perhaps Healy and Murray should be given a rest for the next game. Played alright. H...

One thing is for sure. We can't play both of them together. Leaves the backrow too underpowered.
This. POM might have been better today but you can't play both. I'd pick VDF for his engine

He's plugging away for UCC. Though to be fair, I would say only Penny from the Grand Slam 20's has amassed any decent number of senior caps. Still very young. O'Sullivan is the one who should have a few more.
