      Do you mean is he unavailable due to injury or unavailable due to selection.

          He wasn’t dropped, just suffered a convienient dead leg

            Was Gilroy suspended permanently? I can't remember.

              we have a number of players not playing well over their last few outings, the halfbacks & Kearney, best.

              Farrell is short of game time and very little if any time playing alongside Aki. Quin roux is a 5th choice lock.

              Scotland had a nice run out last week.

              The bookies think we will win by at least 6. I don’t, a one score high scoring game I think that could go either way.
              They'll get their sporrans handed to them on a plate. And like it.

                A 'permanent suspension' is called a 'sacking' mate!!!

                Nah he's back end of April pending an internal review and lots of b*ll*ck*ng.

                  In relation to sending the disrespectful messages to the WhatsApp group he was suspended for a two weeks if that’s what he’s on about.

                    Do I detect a note of sarcasm ?

                        Funny thing is he highlighted these issues last year as well.

                          It would have been 100% silly to immediately drop him from the 15 position had he been fit. It's counter productive to have only one frontline Fullback for RWC and the position is a worry if Kearney isn't fit.
                          Not just my opinion, is Quinny completely wrong as well?
                          Anyway expect Robbie to go in there against Italy.

                            Simple question would you expect Leinster to beat the combined forces of Glasgow and Embra (plus Finn)?

                            P.S. Nell is a huge loss

                              Whatever about Henshaw, we need to give somebody consistent game time in the position to have adequate back up (and ideally a real alternative) to Kearney.

                              Compounding his reluctance to play anybody else at 15, when Joe has given somebody a run he’s chopped and changed so there isn’t a single obvious experienced second choice fullback at the moment.

                              For that reason I was hoping he’d persist with Henshaw this week, and maybe he would if Ringrose hadn’t been injured. We still have a problem there and diminishing time to address it.

                                Scrum is overrated, we had England's number there last weekend, see how much it worked for us...
