He hasn't packed down yet, but that's pretty much all he hasn't done.

Fair comment.
There should be a jurnos as well as a fan vote imo.

Gloating is unbecoming.Winners don't do it. Wales and England don't craw like we do and assume they are world beaters. They get on with it and focus on the next challenge.

My fear is We become complacent , sit on our laurels and show nothing at the World cup.

And make NO mistake this is very much our form.
I mean hyping up Kearney is retarded. Who cares if he had two games where he didn't fuck up massively. He should not be part of any side with serious World cup ambition.

Larmour should have been given way more gametime this year.

I'm happy we won the grand slam but the hyperbole about this side is infuriating. The press have collective amnesia that in the last 3 world cup we showed excellent 6nations form then fell apart.

Let's not do that again . Irrespective of what Gerry Thornley or some Vodafone exec tells us.

There is no cover for Sexton or Murray.
Toner is absolutely shite yet is still a starter. Kearney gets motm because he wasn't terrible. Best at 36 next year should not even be in consideration for the flight to Japan.

For all the media bullshit Ireland are heading into a world cup with several starters who are too old and no cover in several key positions.

Great that there's a bunch of young players being blooded right now too. At least 4 young players have proved their mettle during this championship
That aged well

Same as Best, it's a safe pair of hands guaranteed.
You'd hope by then that Larmour will have him ousted at Leinster, if Conway continues his vein of form then there can be no reason RK gets picked ahead of both.
Took a look back to see what I had said.

Oh but there was, there was a reason RK was picked ahead of Conway.

Fantastic call by Dan (I presume that’s who One is?). Hit the nail on the head.

Devon Toner still a regular starter.
Rory Best will be 36 come the World Cup.
We have next to no cover at ten.
If Sexton picks up his usual knocks then we will be up shit creek at outhalf.

I said two years ago he needed to be looking at building a side for 2019.

He hasnt and six nations be damned, we will pay the price in Japan.
.

There are some absolute gems in this thread m8s.


INTERNET: Serious business.

This time last year, it was the best Irish team ever.
