    Eamonn Sweeney: 'Andy Farrell has made a mess of his first big decision as head coach - and it could be very costly for Ireland'
    Handing the role to a player who won't be in the picture for the next World Cup is pointless

    Not only that he isn't going to be in the picture for 2023, he's barely in the picture now at provincial level. Sweeney mentioned the on field criticisms Sexton routinely dishes out to other players; how long until one or more of these guys look back at him and say "**** off, johnny, you barely play, cry foul after every hit and whinge at the refs every chance you get. Enough with your bull****." I can see it happening.

      There is the kernel of a good point in there but it's hard to find amongst the steaming pile of clickbait manure.

      New Belgian owners are improving the Indo much are they?

        It's a good point. When you're a player who gives out yards to your team mates, you really do have to be able to cash the cheques you're writing yourself.

          I've never manged to feel a miligram of respect for that gurrier since he kicked Mafi in the face/eye (twice?) In retaliation for being dumped unceremoniously in 2009. He opened up his eye with a heel stud!

            That garbage he pulled in Thomond last year was deplorable. First ripping the scrum cap off of Wycherly and then pushing and allegedly stomping on Carbery. Things get heated, I understand, but for him to go after a kid coming for his jersey who is having a good season was downright ridiculous.

              Great point, his bad attitude outweighs his any good delivery on the pitch at the moment. Although we may be waiting for a while given the current Munster representation in the team. He'll be coaching Leinster in five years so none of the conveyor belt output are going to be the one to say it.

                      Is there any chance Italy will get a referee's decision in this game???

                        No, I maintain that Wales get more refereeing decisions at the millennium stadium than any other team at any other ground.

                          Italy have added some nice touches to their game, but they makes so many errors they must be so frustrating to coach. Wales doing not much more than taking the opportunities that come gift wrapped on a regular basis.

                            Agree, Wales have looked fairly average for most of the match. Their scrum and defensive width is very poor.
