He's an empty shirt at this level.

Ross Byrne though is worse. It's painful to watch him just shovel shit on.

Is Frawley a 12? Byrne isnt an international ten. Burns ditto

He’s a tidy player. I’d rather roll the dice with a guy who might be a difference maker.

Keenan isn’t, Byrne isn’t, and JGP isn’t. No matter how much people don’t want Stockdale or Murray picked.

Byrne is doing grand. It's the forwards getting raped. Proper embarrassing at this stage that they can't get to grips with these English players at club or country level

Harry and Frawley have more about them. Cullen just needs to try the bigger games with them.

Carbery could've been great but he's a permacrock and I've more or less given up hoping he'll be back the same player.

He's just passing the buck and does very little going forward. It is crap.

Anybody crapping on about Byrne is a clueless cünt. This is all on the forwards. They are shite and the fact they haven't come up with anything for years to counteract the same group of English lads is a shame for them and their families and their neighbours

Doesn't help when POM is still getting picked

Hendo and especially Connors could have made a difference

He is standing still 10m behind the gainline ffs, just because he's from Leinster you don't need to defend him. He takes it, he ships it on, we lose a few yards, rinse and repeat

Nobody's crapping on about him, just calling it like it is.
He's not anywhere near an international fly half.

His brother is clearly more talented, but sometime just a bit too adventurous.

Farrell butchered that, dont care, he was over the line.

I'm fine with a young player trying shit/being too adventurous. Even if he curtails that he still has everything Ross does imo.

It's irrelevant what he is or where from. The forwards are and is the problem for Leinster and Ireland when it comes to England.

Doris utterly quiet again.
POM just a completely spent force.
Stander anonymous.

Leavy
Connors
Ruddock.

Hope we get to see that with Leinster at least.

Ringrose can do a lot but he can't really lift the level of our backline single handedly.
