Lucky you, they're shit.
Though the actress that have in them is dirty looking and I would give her a sandwich for Sexton, if you get what I mean.
You don't because you haven't seen the ad, but you would.

Just for you winnie.

Keet has been good in fairness, but it's getting ridiculous how all the pundits are just promoting their old (team)mates. Just need Shane Horgan to suggest to bring Rob back at 15!

His distribution :lol:


Tbf, Earls has put in some excellent passes in the last two matches.


THey must have missed all his shocking passes during the RWC, imagine Keet marking Tuilagi last Sunday (I still have nightmares about the last time)

If the 6N gets cancelled, then what . . what the f**k are we supposed to talk about lads?
We can’t even talk up our next great white hopes as the U20s are off as well.
And if the summer tours are off, then how the f**k are we supposed to criticise Faz for not planning for the future!?
This is an unmitigated disaster for PR.

ROG on halfbacks for the team for Paris (ignoring the Corona situation for the moment):
'I genuinely think Murray and Sexton are better players than Cooney and Byrne so you start them. I'm not oblivious as to how many chances Murray will get, but after such a heavy defeat against England, he will know he will have only one more chance left this campaign.'

It's like 2019 didn't happen.

I've got this mental picture of Keet hanging off Manu's ankles squealing like Bimbobot "I demand that you take me seriously!"
Manu has him on ignore.

We need cohesion and to set targets for ourselves
1) Get 10,000 more pages than the Welsh (bonus point)
2) Then overpower the Scots. (bonus point)
3) Then squash the Brits (Triple Crown/ Grand Slam)

Training starts at the keyboards in 10 minutes
I want a good turnout.

I saw those, but I've also seen virtually every one of his 80+ caps for Ireland as well. If he had all these attributes that make him suitable for centre, he'd be a centre.

Hey, I'm not suggesting him at 13! Just acknowledging some excellent passes.

So the U 20 world cup is in Northern Italy this summer. That must mean it's likely to be cancelled, which selfishly from an Irish point of view will be disappointing for what seems to be a pretty good Irish U 20 crop.

They could move it, I suppose. But if there's still a major problem in 3 months then we'll have much more important things to worry about.

Would certainly be a real shame if it doesn't go ahead for these guys. Hopefully some arrangement is made one way or another. Without sounding greedy there would be a lot of expectation around next year's crop as well, am I right? Three good seasons in a row could really setup up Ireland for a proper resurgence given the talent that's already coming through from the not-so-great years (Larmour, Doris, Kelleher, Ringrose).

He had a couple of errors, but all in all I thought Tommy O'B outplayed Jimmy at the Hairsprays.

Would have liked to see him get another run. Would have had him or Kelleher on the bench at least.
