Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

We don't know the situation with POM, SOB, VDF, Leavy and Stander and won't unless they're all fit this Autumn. We also don't know the centre situation. 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 14, 15 look decided I would be flabbergasted if POM and Stander weren't set in stone from here. I'd also be very surprised if R...

Actually, the answer you gave is an absolute no-no. It’s regarded as one of those fake weaknesses, which are not really meant as a weakness but actually “look at me I’m amazing”. You need to come up with something which doesn’t sound like a reverse compliment to yourself
