Is there something I'm not seeing in this picture?
Games at the knoll, very heavy pitch apparently and won’t suit a lot of the younger players. Cronin aside the entire bench is single digits for caps. Ospreys were better last weekend and beat a reasonably strong Ulster side. I think we’ll struggle tbh.

How about showing a bit of empathy before throwing digs at other players?
What?
Empathy/ compassion/ understanding

We heard Hendo is out on family grounds and Earl came in whinging about Toner straight off, this is only a game.

Planet Rugby preview has us as favourites and the bordies on the Englander thread are rattled.
All I need to hear is Jaco has pulled a hammy and I don’t think I’ll last till kickoff.

Are the 20's on TV tonight? Can't find them. Does Sky not have England's 20's?

So? Hendo is a different person.
Don't think you can ever question someone that puts their family first

As said earlier, rumours that it's premature.

I’m actually more excited about this than the senior match. Love the 20’s. Big ask away to England though.

God it'd be a grim life being one of these Saffer refs. Spending your weekend in fúcking Neath in miserable conditions and getting shite from know-nothings for your efforts.

I hope all is well for the Hendersons.

We'll miss IH's presence as a 'seen work' contributor, especially with the current composition of the back row. Thank fudge Eddie Jones is determined to be wrong until proven otherwise in his back row selection.

The front row battle could be epic. Healy is closing in on 100 caps but might not get there unless he takes the chance to keep Dave Kilcoyne and a few others from shutting him out. Tadgh Furlong is under pressure too to show he's still No.1 No.3.
I think Sinkler and Marler are going to act the bollocks from the start and test the ref.

The Irish scrum looks so much weaker without Rory Best but they've had plenty of time to find a workaround. Picking JVDF and POM in the same backrow is madness against the biggest team in the 6N, I think, but we'll see what happens.

It's a brave call by Jones to pick Tuilagi if he's not 100%, especially against an Irish team containing Bundee Aki.

Ireland by a gust of collective Guinness fart carrying a last minute Ross Byrne conversion over. :)
