Why does he often sit on the bench behind Archer?

Ryan isn't as dominant as Porter.

Porter arguably the most important player in Irish rugby.

There's more to TH play than scrummaging alone. There's also how you want to structure your team over 80 minutes.

Anyone with an iota of rugby knowledge would be aware than John Ryan is a brilliant scrummger. He doesn't bring much else to the field, but he's a top top scrummager.

It was marginal, but still.
Fair summary
In a pub full of fans who know nothing maybe but the laws are quite clear these days and it was simply not a forward pass regardless of which team threw it.
So annoying. Hate when that gets called at J4 level let alone with the help of replays. The TMO was simply wrong there. Dunno how he was so convinced.

We just got turned over off first phase, off the top lineout ball.

That is a pretty bad indictment of the coachs.

Point is that you and luckycharmer are full of crap when you state that Kearney was some sort of man mountain in defence. Great positioning and under the high ball, but heart of a lion in a tackle he wasn't
You lads brought up Kearney not us you loon :lol:

So your point is that Stockdale is allowed a howler because a Leinster guy had one 10 years ago. Is that your point? :lol:
Stockdale had Burns inside him, absolutely had to take the outside man. If the pass had gone and he had hit the ball carrier most on here would still be hanging him out to dry.

Agreed. Who is going to take over from Farrell with 30 mins to go though?

Ryan and Ross Byrne are already on.

McCloskey is a hugely underated player. Always gets the better of Aki when Connacht come to town, but never gets selected ahead of him.

It's a joke that he hasn't played for Ireland during the past 2 or 3 seasons when he Ulsters best performer (alongside Coetzee)
Yourself and Earl need to get on the same page with this so your story stands up, he says Luke Marshall always gets the better of Aki

Made a forward pass early on in the 2nd half. Very quite though.

Get Bealham off.

Henderson doing some talking too. Ryan is a bit of an empty jersey this season so far; a shadow of the player he was.

When? recently? 2020 fixture in June we played you off the park. 2019 in Ravenhill Bundee wasn’t playing. So we’re going back to what, 2/3 seasons ago? Interesting

We're not taking it particularly seriously with all the subs but I don't know why they are keeping the ball in scrums against Georgia.
