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.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Zebre player pulls a Glasgow and tries to end Casey's season with a late shot to the knee.

That should be red and a long ban, but it won't be. It's an attempted career ender.

Naming him captain when he was playing poorly was a poor mistake. Continuing to start him and keeping him as captain is a bigger mistake.

Ryan has been the worst of Ireland's locks by a non-insignificant amount over the last few weeks.
