I sometimes wonder if they like to keep the video analysts guessing too. Preparing for Luke versus JGP is very different for Scarlets, likewise Isa versus Henshaw at 12. Do they fly a few false flags so the opposition don't get to be too focused on the specific team that is starting?

He is fcuked. You will see less and less of him going forward. I don't think his troubles are all physical either.

He had a rather tragic episode in his personal life a few years back, just when he started become more susceptible to these injuries ...... I reckon he hasn't been the same person since, maybe Lions tour excluded.

Folau is entitled to believe in whatever imaginary sky person he chooses and publish what he believes. The fact that he thinks the imaginary sky person will send the gays to an imaginary purgatory is a bit unfortunate.

The whole PC movement is veering dangerously away from a respect for how people choose to live their own lives, towards an expectation that it should be possible to dictate how people live their lives and express their views.
Fair enough. Seemed a mental place but I suppose they are ignored at your peril

I see Off the Ball are dredging up Rorys captaincy again. Quite hard not to think theres a focus to this until the Irish captain doesn't have a northern accent.

Your squad would be better off focussing their attention on their own jobs. There is a big clear out needed and quite a few of them will be on the list

Nah. Virtually no talk of his captaincy since the week of his big day out in court. I suppose they could be bored of the Kingspan two and be moving onto him.

Off the ball have been a shower of counts over this. I watched a video this morning OTB with BOD on it talking about those 2, barely holding back a smile.

Probably just bitter that most people still consider Mike Gibson a better player.

Sounds a bit paranoid to be honest.

Rory is much highly respected by all Irish rugby people. The only questions I have heard asked are related to his age and if he can keep this level of performance up 'till the WC.

No sign of the club captain. Maybe to close to the story though for him to do it. Maybe he didnt want to.
