Fitzpatrick sub TH. Makes the decision to give him 9 minutes in the a-game more strange.

Going for the balance in the backrow argument regarding POM over Henry. Not the worst justification, but still seems harsh on Henry.

Rest of the team is good. RADGE benching aside.


Missed Bent off the bench. Good call.

Harsh on Henry but POM does make sense in the context of having a proper tail jumper in the lineout.

How do you "target" the Welsh lineout?
Be in the same half of the field as the thrower?

I'm quite happy with the selection. As a whole happier that Mc Carthy and Gilroy get their chance. Unlucky on Henry. Gutsy call getting rid of Bent.

Quite happy that info yesterday did not turn out to be quite the case.

Not a bad aul team all things considered. Wings picked for the right reasons, I wish RADGE was f**king dropped, on his head, but sure it's not bad.

Feel for Henry, but was a tight call, Shobsy will do a job.

Gutsy in what way? He's been awful and Fitzpatrick (when he's not broken) is much better.
