Not to sure what to make of Kearney at the moment his first game was sh1t and the last one he salvaged it somewhat .

Wouldn't be to surprised if PoM and Stander reverse roles next week with Stander being the player winning turnovers as the Aussie pack will try to negate PoM .

Joe has a decision to make now does go to win the series or does he try to increase the experience in the squad and experiement

Having proved a depleted Irish squad can win, at this stage of the cycle, I think I would go for the latter. Especially if Sexton is carrying a knock I think I might blood Byrne and Cooney in the first half when the opposition is fresh . If they come through that then deserve a place in the squad. He knows Carberry is a "flakey target" requiring protection which detracts from the back row performance.
Joe had that same decision in South Africa and fecked it up

I have no faith in Joe

South Africa was different Sexton wasn't on tour and the RWC was not the next year .

At that time he had two outhalfs .

Now he has one out half and one scrum half . To play in a semi final they have to survive five matches in at least 5 weeks that's the thin thread by which Irish expectation hangs .

So not content with being a sly filthbag he is also a whinging bítch. Needs a good kicking and someone to tell him to get on with his job.
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

Rum, ignoring the spaces before full stops; this is the most sensible and well constructed sentence you have ever written on the UAFC. Well done sir :salut:

Pity its off topic :lol:

What if you are the same size and very stupid, your opposition are as daft as a fox, but have only one leg each, who wins in Ron's World?

South African warriors falling on their arses as they charged onto the pitch is my highlight of the day.

seeing the Lacey incident from behind the posts it is obvious the French 9 was in no mans land but that said the incident took place before the score and pass and in fairness he should have reset the scrum .
But it was never a result change decision .

AB backs were to good on the night and were passes didn't go to hand last week the errors were fewer .
