I don't thing they do, they just keep dropping everything so have to keep having to pack scrums and lineouts where they are clearly second best.

I was so wary of Teo as just another league journeyman, but every time I've seen him he's been genuinely good. Try well taken.

Joking aside though, he's a plum. Got fed up with his strapped up arm being used against the head of tacklers.

The Irish have a couple of poaches, the Welsh have a few (mostly English :x ). It's the modern game. Understand people don't like it but there aren't many teams who are immune.

No joking matter, I'm all for countries being more like franchises with a loose affiliation to nationality like now

Yep. Just can't have Farrell at 12 if teams are challenging you on the gainline.

The disadvantage of playing two flyhalves is you lose a carrier. Eddie has done well with his subs.

Care with an awful box kick.
