    Yeah they tend to update those slowly. I’d believe he was that coming out of school, now 115-120 is much more likely.

    Aight' that's fair enough. Tall fellas are much more likely to pick up injuries than thicc bois in general but especially when they're young. Hopefully Ryan starts getting that old man strength before the RWC, he'll be dad dicking lads in no time!

    Kearney did all right. Hard to fault him on this match.

    But, these performances are all too seldom. He's also not exactly building a solid body of evidence of being dependable fitness-wise.

    I'd really like to see a bit more focus on depth at 9, 10 and 15. Cooney or McGrath at 9. Dunno who at 10. Stockdale, Conway, TOH or even Carbery were all options for 15. None were examined in depth this autumn.

    In 2019 we could again be walking into a world cup depending on 2 or 3 people staying fit and in form throughout.

    Aw come on. Everyone knows that when the Celtic gods were handing out good looks they ran out after dealing with Scotland. :p

    Of the 3 teams though I loved Fiji approach. Really stayed through to themselves and are starting to combine the necessity of 15 man game with the sublime of the 7 man game

    You're not far wrong. Living in Limerick does that to people.

    ........ What in the world are you talking about? Stander has to be one of the most humble, well spoken and gentle men in World Rugby, and I have no idea what you're referring to in the other two either.

    Stander is a gent and very charitable man.
    Keith Earls has done more for regeneration of Moyross than most. A lad that puts family and roots first but very shy and not a guy who likes nights out etc

    To be fair, he did admit to judging by the cover, its just bizarre! We have Furlong and Ja Ryan who look like they eat people, Healy definitely fits the previous description and then you've got Murray and Kearney who only fight in a bar when they're trying to escape hoardes of women!

    OR

    To be fair Munster will always drag the reputation of this side down, they're the reason Argentina hate us!

    (Haven't grasped the atmosphere of this thread yet /s)

    Feel like it would also be remiss to not mention the 2015 Connacht team turning into crime fighting vigilantes when a bunch of knackers stole Henshaw's laptop. Vigilantism is illegal goys.

    What I found strange was complimenting the best 10 and one of the most intelligent attackers in rugby for being involved in a try...

    Frankly I also believe 3rd best to be an insult to the team that only two weeks ago hammered Fiji by 3 points.

    Maybe they just scare me. I know that they would beat me at rugby. That's for sure!

    I said after the Bok game that I don't think that Ireland score enough for all the class that Murray and Sexton have.

    That's more because Ireland game plan is structured and effectively like a script

    Just announced New Zealand are coming next November for a test. I hereby declare 2018 as the year of Northern aggression.

    Heard a rumour that NZ wanted one in Amsterdam too but demanded the full gate among other ridiculous things. Hopefully they get bummed over here and us and our London based Bros can get on with sauntering to a RWC final.
