Kidney, like the man before him oeprates to diktat, that of one Edward Wigglesworth a boIIox of the highest order. I used blame Browne for Irelands lack of ambition, but the likes of this guy are embedded in there in careers and are not for shifting, nor sadly, is there any move to shift them likely to happen anytime soon. They are the ones that say promising players can't be selected unless they have been through all "The Programmes".
But you're still right about Kidney and perhaps that situation suits his lack of an adventurous spirit and even disdain for any kind of risk taking on the field. Ask D Ryan if in doubt.
