James Ryan.
I'd say Conan is another.

Van Der Flier is obviously a model professional.

Are you suggesting that "Tit" and "Buff" are not reliable witnesses?

Why do people go onto Twitter to confirm themselves or family members as witnesses? w&%kers! I'm way to cynical to be this naive!

I was really struck by the way both Leo and Stu talked about him in the last weeks as being an example to the squad. As you say, a model pro.

On the basis of IRFU statement, looks like SO'B is luckily 'between contracts'.
Open season on social media about how late is public statement and the absence of public contrition from Sean.

The price of public fame is the loss of public sympathy, for any departure from exemplary behaviour. There is no longer any hiding place and the reality is that top class athletes, with very low tolerance of the effects of alcohol, should stay well away from the public is they want to indulge in 'end-of-season' relaxation.

In the real world a lot of stupid things happen and thankfully are known only to a few so that people can get on with their lives, however, online means that every troll can resurrect something best forgotten. I agree there is no rehabilitation, mitigation or forgiveness in this circumstances as you only need one idiot to be negative and thousands read it.

It’s why I think it’s best to contribute positively to this forum by not commenting online on personal matters (say your piece in small groups amongst your friends) and keep the forum to opinions on how to improve the team which is presumably the wish of all of us.

Big season ahead COYBIB and green.

Indeed, add in the fact that people will believe what they want to believe, will usually believe the worst and you end up with a poisonous, toxic mix of vitriolic, holier than thou, self righteous hypocrisy.
Let thee who is without stone cast the first stone unless, of course, it's your job.

Any update on O’Brien’s injury? Not heard much about if he’s still heading to London Irish
