Always thought he had a bit of speed but never saw him chasing anyone before to compare. God be with the days of Wally chasing down wingers after giving them a head start and spoiling us rotten. Pretty big boots for Tommy to fill. Best of luck with the rest of his development but you can't coach pace.
    He showed quite a bit of pace for. JJs try against Perpignon.

      Yes, he's very quick for back row ordinarily. Worrying that he might not be in top form or might be carrying a knock, because he was one of the key men in The Stoop last season, and we'll need a big performance from him to win against Toulouse.

        Yes, he's a flyer, so it is very worrying if he was caught by a player as (realtively) slow as Jennings alright. Most likely explanation is a knock, hopefully it was just a transient injury and he's back jumping out of his boots this weekend, cos as say we'll need him!!

          Has Jennings ever played lock?

                100% agree, this should have feck all to do with POC's wishes. He has an important year to come, and will be thankful later that he had the break.

                  Madness to bring Poc to the Argies. Feck it let him travel but no fubbing playing.
                  A tour to Argentina is always a great way to see what a lads are made of.

                    If he wants to go for the holiday fine. But play him? Absolutely no point. We know by now what he can offer. It'll be (hopefully) I long season, and the last thing we need is him off in a pointless pre season tour.

                    Always felt bringing the older players who are past it or players who are established to these trips are pointless, I mean at this rate, we might as well bring Gordan Darcy as well, call BOD see if he'll come just for one last trip.
                    Pointless. I can't see POC going the entire season without getting injured..and it's one hell of a long season next year.

                    Stringer is bigger even than his own immense shadow. Pound for pound, he is the best tackler in the world. If you put him into bag of cats he\'d come out without a scratch. He was hit very late for Murphy\'s try. And when he got up, as we knew he would, the crowd cried his name as if he had just fixed the economy.Billy Keane-After Munster\'s famous loss to the AB\'s.

                      I can see the logic in Trimble as he was only involved in internationals after Christmas and he's obviously on a high after winning his place, but bringing Paulie would just be madness. Mad ****ers need coaches to tell them to calm down sometimes.

                        Paulie should go, and he should play at least one of the matches with Henderson or Tuohy to try that combo out before the 6N and World Cup. He's had enough rest in his career.

                          I wasn't sure how I felt on this but I now think POC should go. He hasn't had a pre-season for a few years now. Having the Irish captain on board should help the younger players raise their games. His input with the lineout will be invaluable for the other forwards. I wouldn't play him in all the matches though.

                            The Pumas team we are going over to play is gonna be hella weak, we could send the Wolfhounds and still win the series at a canter.

                              It'll be a similar squad to the one England's second-string pulverised last summer. Some seriously average scrummagers made mincemeat of the Argentina pack, which is sad to say considering their history.
