I thought that Ruddock was immense, and obv. thought he should have played against Sarries; Ringer and Kelleher were also both good.

Hard to judge as the Dragons weren't up to Leinster.
Is there much to draw from the game?

The Keenan/Larmour switch seemed sensible, but the match didn;t exactly challenge either.

Likewise with Ruddock getting some gametime.

Any word on Sexton after the game?

It's very rare that I think Leocaster make poor selections, but you'd really have to wonder why Ruddock was sidelined in the past 6 weeks or so.

Ruddock was missed, but the Dragons were awful.

I understand why they didn't pick Ruddock but it was clearly an error. My understanding is they understand that

Just catching up on the game, Frawley won't last long in the centre if he keeps tackling like that.

Frawleys tackle was a mess. He ended up getting it from both knees..

12. Ringer
13. Farrell
For the test team? Or are we persisting with bosh at 12 despite clear evidence we need more depth, better lines and more distribution?

What's Farrell done of late to have people calling for his selection?

The form partner for Ringrose over the past 2 years is big Stu.

Yeah, that's just what Ireland needs. A selfish brainless cnut who dies with it more than a depressed jihadist.

Aki looked good in his limited post lockdown appearances tbf . I don’t think any of them are the answer though tbh , most teams are now playing with a passer at 12 that can get the ball to pods of fast men in the outside channels very fast . We’re still trying to bosh it up the middle and keep things as simple as possible

Also agree, not always been Aki's biggest fan but he's been good since the restart. Centre is about the only area of selection for Farrell that doesn't require a lot of thought.

You'd love to see Farrell to return North just to see how Earls' opinion of him changes.

Just a query here, but have you watched McCloskey play?

Because he isn't selfish or brainless.

I think he's a good player but he's barely played through injury and barely gets the ball in Munster's big games he is available to play.

Technically it is a penalty.

But there'll be a lot of cards if this is going to be reffed like this at every ruck.
