    Fair, I've heard Noel Reid has already impregnated 8 Leicester women just because of the raw sexuality that wafted off the contract he [may have] signed.

    In fairness the Pro14 producing more class on the bigger stage.
    2 Scots and 3 Irish. Not bad. A poor Munster amd iffy Leinster breeze through groups with 2 English teams each.

    a small amount of truth, it is fair to say the better team doesn’t always come out on top and I think in the case on Munster Exeter this was the case, if they went through and Munster didn’t it would be 2, 2, 2 which puts a slightly better complexion on it from an England perspective.

    Maybe it's up to Premiership clubs to change their selection policies? Leinster rotating isn't a negative, it's smart use of resources. The sooner Premiership clubs recognize this and stop making excuses, the better equipped they'll be to compete. Dai Young amongst others should take note.

    I can remember 10-15 years ago when Munster lost to Wasps and Toulouse in European semi finals. The English and French teams had far stronger squads, bringing high class players off the bench to close out those games. Munster built their squad as a result to compete. The same happened Leinster in 2010. Toulouse had far greater strength in depth. Leinster went about increasing their strength in depth as a result. It's incumbent upon Premiership clubs to do the same. You do so by building from within and rotating your squad, not splashing out, say, £500000 per year on a loosehead.

    True but as we were once told if my Aunt had balls she'd be my uncle. It's a results business.
    Exeter could've won yesterday. But didn't and another spin could be poor decision making from being in Premiership may have been cause. But again thats a what if

    Just @ me next time.

    I don't see anything wrong in spending 500k on the best loosehead in the world.
    POM is on 450k, Sexton is on 650k
    Players in Ireland don't just play for the love of their region.

    Plus this is actually us increasing depth seeing as we only have one senior loosehead we use.

    To add to this look at this look at the way the rotation is served. Sexton (A World Player of the year) is out and the system means it's not a huge issue. Yes a loss but not a massive disruption.

    Yes but difference is an English international may be on £400k at club and another top up too for England. Irish biys are on a wage and no top up unless bonuses like rest of world.
    IRFU wage bill is lower than lowest 4 Premieeship clubs wage bills. That is fact.

    And I'd argue that while they don't justvplay for the loyalty or love they do have ot as the can get much bigger contracts abroad eg Zebo but most stay.
    A lad like an Andrew Conway or Devin Toner who would be on modest wages like €150k-€200k max could easily get at least double that abroad but wouldn't leave.

    Could have kept Mike Haley, Will Addison and signed a quality loosehead for that money.

    the difference is England have 13 top flight clubs that stretch the resources and Ireland has 4.

    If England had what 6 clubs we would dominate everything.
