Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

That win is a huge endorsement of Cullen and Lancaster. They trusted the squad that was performing in the Pro14 and it payed dividends.

He's 30 years old and has never been a first choice international.

Nobody in that group will be given a chance by Farrell as there are much younger guys with a much higher ceiling.

Great try.

Guys like Kearney, Byrne, and Ruddock are so good for Leinster at this level.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Are Ireland asking/expecting too much of Ryan? We are expecting him to do everything like a POC or a AWJ, and he's clearly not up to it at the moment. Hopefully its just a run of poor form, because it's extremely worrying when the guy touted to be Ireland's captain for the next decade has been the w...

Stockdale went fine at fullback. Spilt one ball, would have created a try for POM if he had a bit more gas , reduced a couple of shoddy passes and managed to make yards and is clearly being used more of set piece to get his hands on the ball, something we desperately need. I'm still not sure he mea...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

With Hodnett injured, POM's performance at 7 bodes well for Munster. A backrow of Stander/Coombes/POM could be excellent for Munster.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

At 21 Casey is already looking like a guy with 30 international caps under his belt.

Cooney is great in his role with Ulster, but there isnt huge value giving 20 caps to a 30 year old at the expense of younger guys.

Extremely unlikely.

Ross Byrne will be involved despite not being anywhere near the standard required. I'm no huge fan of Burns, but he has been a huge step up on Byrne.
