      Best of luck with the retirement McFadden, gave his all in blue and green, and one of the few remaining wingers in the pro game that you can use the phrase 'dirty bastard' in summing him up. I dont mean that as a sleight, Fergie was always more than willing to get stuck in and dish it out.

        Yep, would agree. Whiff of Cordite gave him the well earned nickname of the Kildare Lewis Moody. Huge courage and he never shirked the physical side of it.

            For me, Ringrose getting a central contract is an odd decision considering his lack of top performances against the big teams, in recent years. He has been the organizer of the least aggressive defensive line in the six nations and hasn’t ever really looked like a massive attacking threat against the top few nations. Similar to Larmour, he hasn’t been able to replicate the attacking form he shows when given space VS Italy/Canada/Japan, against the likes of New Zealand/England, but unlike Larmour, he has been given plenty chances to prove he was good enough to become an attacking force against the big teams.

            Also, find it strange that Ireland have three centres on central contract, with no guaranteed starters and plenty of other highly rated options (Farrell, McCloskey, Marshall, Addison etc...) below that level. Would it not make more sense to give a central contract at 7 or a position with less depth?
