    So long as Balcony Bob and TO'H are not in the equation that will do me.

      Yet of the three you retain the smallest lad who’s showing the least form?

      Also being tall in and of itself dosent necessary make you a great back three player, it’s often an indication that you are good under the high ball which both Larmour and Conway have been this year.

        Stockdale's defensive liabilities have been exposed in 2019, if he works them out, great. If not, you can't have him as a starting winger when you have defensively sound guys available who are also great in attack like Conway and Earls. Larmour has worked on his defense and getting better at fielding the high ball, which were the exact things he needed to do in order to overtake Kearney besides being great going forward. Stockdale needs to do something similar in order to secure a spot in the starting team.

                They've fulfilled their Byrne quota.

                        They recruited that Hawaiian lad into their sub academy after he played for US U20s. Mostly played American Football in high school and is a bit of a monster.

                          Honest question: has any player done less to become so many people’s chosen fullback than Addison?

                          I think he looks a decent attacking player, and he has good pace, but between injuries, shifting positions etc. has he really shown he’s a better option than Larmour, Haley, TOH, Conway and Stockdale?
                          Addison has looked a bit special in his last couple of games for Ulster, both in attack and defence. But Larmour does not deserve to be dropped on his RWC form and post RWC games for Leinster. He has improved tremendously as an all-round FB and should hold his Ireland shirt until someone clearly better displaces him.. I think Conway is a very good FB but is not picked in that slot for Ireland or Munster. TOH can be great, but seems to have missed the boat. Stockdale is a bit of a stand-in FB, but a very good wing when he is in top form. I don't think Haley is quite international class. Addison would be a useful bencher in the 23 man match squad, since he can cover centre, wing and FB.
                          I think Earls is a great wing, but perhaps not in top form at present. Would not be surprised to see a back three of Larmour/Conway/Stockdale against Scotland. Club form in the next few weeks could be crucial to selection and it will be a close thing.

                            Leinster have the bonus point after 20min. The Westies are falling off tackles but every Leinster player is playing awesome rugby

                                It’s galling to be in the same country and league as Leinster but that’s the standard to be measured against. It’s some organisation.
