    While I understand what you're sayin I don' think Kearney even offers that level of comfort. Like you say Zebo has had bags of chances there but if you look he has very few caps at 15 and majority of games there he was very good. But he shouldn't be picked of it's being based on future. I get we have 2 inexperienced wing but we have a poor 15 who has gathered his last 15-20 caps on name more than form. And he has to be phased out for the clamour of better options sooner rather than later.
    And on Argentina lets be real. This team that takes the field tomorrow are a poor tier 1 if even that. Add in their European guys and we have a serious outfit but tomorrow's team are in terrible form and we will beat them by 20+ points

    Why is the match time in South African time? Lucky someone said the kick off time to me or I wouldn't have been home in time for it.

    5:30 Irish time so it would be 6:30 or 7:30 in SA depending on how many hours they are ahead of us.



    Who are the players to watch out for? Can't say I've seen too much of Argentina this year but they do play some nice rugby and can open teams up. I think they might score a few tries today.


    Irelands tactics today should be to give the ball to Stockdale.

    Seeing Chris Farrell is 24... I can't think of anything I'd want more than be good enough to play test rugby but those genetics aren't worth that face.

    Don't know why everyone shocked on Farrell being in. I'm blue in face saying since summer how Schmidt played big part in bringing him back and well was obviously backing him from then

    Yep, has clearly been a huge fan for ages.

    Also Schmidt is huge on how training as we mean to play. Reportedly Aki had been practising at 12 all week. McCloskey isn't a 13; ergo Farrell.

    The thing about Farrell is he has done some good things for Munster this season as well as the bad things. So while he has made some headline errors, there is potential there. He is very big and hard to stop once he gets going so by cutting out the fancy stuff he could be a solid option going forward.

    Farrell has the talent but consistency is the thing.

    I can see this being a hammering listening to ROG. Can't see logic viewing this as close.
    Argentina away, without European guys, a poor Jaguares club team no form and at end of season

    RTE should watch how long the camera lingers in those kids given recent developments.

    Beautiful Chris Farrell. Never doubted you or called you names for a moment.

    Think we'd be winning this by 30 points if we had out first choice centre patnership.

    Ok half, very similar to SA. Kearno and Stockers doing very well, Farrell has had some good touches. Bundee struggling.

    Pretty good so far, would like a more clinical touch but can't have everything. No bad performances.

    Robnoxious Kearange on full display.

    Hope Byrne gets some more ball in space.

    Delighted with my pre match prediction. This Arg team is awful. Stats say that too

    I'll still never forgive Stockdale scoring the try to put us out of the schools cup, but it's incredible how comfortable he looks already at this level
