I don't really think he's up to this level. Can't remember exact time lines but he'd a good run for Leinster, got injured I think and just never looked there after.

According to Wiki, Liam was 20 when Jim was born. And Ian 21 when Liam came along. They don't waste time in that house.

The utter lack of control in games of rugby like this one, from both sides, gives me the screaming shits.

One might almost call it Bothamesque.

It's a while since I've been as excited about a Munster forward as I am about Coombes.

We’ve produced a few undersized forwards of late. Great to see a beast like Coombes.

Salanoa and Wycherley got a good few scrums there at the end n looked ok.

Not sure McCarthy ever got a real run for us but looked OK when he played and he'd formed an excellent partnership with Byrne at u20s so was given a large dollop of benefit of doubt. But faded completely, as you say, with the injury.

great to see Coombes given a chance at 8.. why was Arno Botha was playing ahead of him last season?

same with Hodnett, bar injury/rest there should be no situation where Cloete or TOD are playing ahead of him.

Jamison Gibson-Park, Keith Earls and Rónan Kelleher will all be closely monitored over the next two days before Andy Farrell and his assistants name their matchday 23 on Wednesday for Saturday’s 2020 Guinness Six Nations finale against France in Paris.
