He did eff all apart from that but, hey, "I'm waiting for that call from Andy" will no doubt be in the Indo over the next few days

Eff all, I suppose you weren't actually watching the game then
Zebo played well to be fair, took his tries well, caught his high balls but is in France so out of the reckoning

I admire his skills. Really truly do.

But I'd be in the line for the bat.
3 exeter tries due to him, plus the missed kicks. Though starting scrumhalf gave him a run for his money with his 1st half performance.
He is the kind of teammate who would have you, as my Dad once said many moons ago, thinking long and hard during training about crocking.

Imagine an ex-Leinster player moved to France and score 2 tries in the final. Reaction of certain posters would be so much different.

Irish rugby can't afford to pick players playing abroad or will lead to a load of players chasing the cash., Zebo knew that when he moved to France.

Zebo wouldn’t suit the Irish pre-planned movez/“structure”/zero flair gameplan tbf.

He was very good today, and has been decent any time I’ve seen him recently.
But he just ain’t gonna get picked because he’s abroad. All the PR in the world ain’t changing that.

Look, we've done this a million times. You either have amnesia, think Zebo is a much more important player in a much more important position or are just trolling.

Racings half backs gifted Exeter 4 tries.
Racing scored four of their own.
Owens did his usual decide the winner thing in the last couple of minutes, and handed Exeter a handy game winning penalty.

Exeter were worth it due to Racings incompetence as much as anything else.

Change everything for 1 game? Lets see how Keenan/Shane Daly do, would trust them defensively before Zebo.

I'd love to see Keenan take the jersey in the long term, as it is we have a chance to win a 6n and don't have a recognised 15 in the squad so why not use one that's in good form?

Because he essentially retired from intl rugby when he left. Its as simple as that. He left in full knowledge that it ended his irish career.

Saw the highlights. Finn Russell will do some very entertaining stuff and occasionally win you a match with a moment of brilliance, but you ain't winning any serious competition with him at the helm.
Really don't get the love, he's just too loose to be a properly good top level player.

Leinster posters have managed to set aside years of xenophobia as it will mean JGP and Lowe get capped for Ireland.

Hypocrites who have no qualms lowering themselves to xenophobia and racism provided it suits their club. x(

All the noises seem to be about the government trying to keep as much economic activity going as possible.
Have there been any outbreaks associates with pro sport, so far? There've been isolated cases, sure, but AFAIK they've all been caught and dealt with precisely because of the measures that are in place.

Hopefully.

Good to know she's not some sort of weird outlier then. That's a manifesto I'd hope we can all stand by.
