Yep.

Grandson of Beefy
Wow. That makes me feel old.
Beefy is 64, so he and Liam were both quick off the mark.
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.

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.
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.

Kinsella and Toolan very positive on Ireland in the 42 pod. No real criticism of the sluggish back play and predictable passing patterns.

I have a bad feeling about Saturday too.
Wouldn't be surprised if France come racing out of the blocks and get a couple of scores due to us not being switched on. We'll continue to stick rigidly to the "plan" and and make a couple more cock ups and let in some soft scores.
France will switch off in the second half but we won't be able to make up the deficit but score a couple of tries after the benches are emptied and Toland etc will say the future is bright and ask why the subs didn't start in the first place.

No arguments there. Also a jod Hodnett Coombes Back row is well balanced.

Coombes has had a lot of bench minutes covering lock and 6 this year but I was very impressed with his control from the back of the scrum last night.
Look it was only caaaardiffff but you have to see each level of the pro14 as a step up and a lot of these guys are showing they’re capable at this level.
Very few look like rookies.

Watched back the last few scrums to look at salanoa and Wycherley. Certainly no lack of power. I’ll leave it to those who know better to critique the technique.
Salanoa and kleyn were involved in Two impressive late mauls Which shows his use



On and France by 10. It’s going to be ugly I feel
