    Our fullback can't tackle

    The miss yesterday is unforgivable. Had it been Felix Jones or Zebo our neighbours in Blue would be demanding a public execution. For all his prowess, which is considerable, we can not carry a non-tackling Fullback. We aren't good enough. He has to be dropped. No Provincial bias here. We just can't play with a non-tackling 15.

    Who is Leinsters reserve full back and is he Irish Qualified?

      I doubt if the French will have noticed that, or be in a position to take advantage of it, so we should be ok

          His tackling technique is shocking and he should be held accountable for it . 1/2 p who is a good bit smaller just stopped Burrell from scoring and injured himself in the process . Wales well beaten but he did not chicken out of that tackle . RK nearly always goes above the waist and not with the shoulder just the arms and is brushed off by anyone travelling at pace . He doesn't try and tackle below the knees . Is he afraid he might get a stray boot in the face?

            He's our Poitrenaud.
            We are on for cship record for least points conceded. Plus he's had decent cship going forward.

              The panel on RTE yesterday agreed that tackling was the weakest part of Super Rob's game.

              A fullback who can't/won't tackle. How quintessentially Irish :D

                A certain fullback with lovely parents could tackle.

                  His parents taught him to tackle - a proper upbringing.

                    As a physio once told me, "remove the word 'can't' from your vocabulary." 'Won't' is another matter entirely.

                        Kearney's **** defense is no revelation, he's always missed big tackles. He's still had a very good championship aside from that horror show attempt though. If we find someone else who can play 13 instead of Payne he could have a bit of trouble on his hands though

                          Who will more than likely be playing 13

                              Robbie Henshaw could give Kearney a real run for his money if given the opportunity. I've no doubts on that at all.
                              I always knew Madigan was a closet Scrum Half. Ignore All things that suggest Continuity.
