    Seriously, does Daire O Brian ever have a good word to say about anything. At the end of a brilliant display once again, his first words were "it was down to luck". What a moron.

    well done ireland

      Brilliant result, delighted for the lads. Just finished watching it now as got home late
      "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

      Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

        He's failed the moron exam twice and has to repeat the ludramaun class for another year. Got an 'A' in spoofing though.

            Some very odd commentary about the team. I've heard a few times this week that the team is better than the sum of its parts and they've no outstanding individuals yet as a team they were awful against Wales but scored 4 tries and had 3 tries cancelled out by the TMO.
            ​​​​​​

            Penny, Casey, Tierney, Baird, Hodnett, Byrne, Hawkshaw, French... etc etc. Some outstanding individuals there and plenty of others.


            As a team they looked very flat but they dug in and got the job done. That will stand to them. The coaches will have to rotate a bit more during the U20 world cup.

              There isn't a clear pathway in Munster. That's my whole point! Leinster have a clear pathway, Ulster have a clear pathway, Munster do not. Its a cluttered pathway.

                Fantastic achievement, should not be underestimated - Grand Slam beating the World Cup winners and Finalists on the way. The supporters at the games in Musgrave Park should take a bow (& I'm a Limerickman!), played a major part in the games vrs. England & France.

                  There’ll always be congestion in some positions. Take LH prop for example. Killer, Cronin, Liam O’Connor and Loughman are all good players and it will be very tough for anybody in the Academy to break through. Doesn’t mean we should get rid of any of those four.

                  We’re decluttering in some areas (SH for example) and I think we have one too many OHs but I don’t think it’s systemic issue.
