I don't subscribe to the much pedalled idea that we are always beaten because our pack get steamrolled. I'm not denying there have been games where they have been steamrolled but there have been games where we have held our own and even beaten HEC level teams scrums (Bath, Gloucester H, Agen A, Edi...

Well, if you find some world-class, uncontracted front row players out there, I'm sure the branch would be open to suggestions. If you actually look at who played in the various games you mentioned, you'll find not a lot of continuity among the forwards. In fact who's still in the starting pack sinc...

There was one other time recently when this backline (more or less) had problems with a rush defence: Ireland v France at Croke Park. So I don't think the problem can be reduced solely to the coach or the outhalf. With Ireland one could blame Steady's over-rigid gameplan, but Cheika has always stres...

My rant is about that Wasps sub 18 or 19 (the BIF with the hair so bad that the late lamented Mr.S (Mullet) Byrne could have given him useful styling advice), who about 2 minutes from the end of the game kicked the ball out of play over the stand & then turned to the crowd and gave us the 2 fin...

Mal did have a poor game. I'm sure he missed at least two tackles: the one that both he and Shaggy missed, another where he looked to have the player and just slid down his legs and maybe another earlier. His penalty for barging in the lineout was a ridiculous thing to do; he looked like he knew tha...

Stan the Man did very well. He broke the gain line every time he took the ball on and the scrum seemed to work well. Same front row to start on Saturday? I'm still not sure about Stan's scrummaging, we were under pressure a number of times. However his ball carrying was excellent. Since he's moved ...

Just back from Jamaica, the two games were amazing. If Ireland qualify we will seeded as D1 instead of Pakistan, it doesnt matter if we finish top or they do, although if we win friday we will have 2 points going into the super sixes.

Why does Cheika persist in announcing oversized preliminary squads which include every fit player as well as some who probably aren't even fit?!

Where's that exactly?

Surely not Dublin 6?


Very far on the Northside, I think!
