    Top 50 players in Ireland

    http://www.irishtimes.com/sport/rugb...land-1.1996185

    With clear eyes and a full heart, here follows a list ranking the top 50 rugby players in Ireland.
    Now, some ground rules. It’s not necessarily the best 50 players but the top 50 on current form and impact. Or, in the case of a few injured men, how much their presence is felt by their enforced absence.
    Many players are excluded entirely due to injury.
    The Sports Illustrated writers got hammered for only ranking Kobe Bryant at No.24 in their Top 100 NBA list, released before the season got under way. But Bryant had been crocked for a while.
    The top 50 is wide open to debate, and disagreement seems guaranteed, with the only certainty being the list will have changed significantly come the Six Nations.
    Foreigners living in Ireland are included and so are Irish players playing abroad but in the latter’s case only one has made it. Bet you can guess what number is beside his name.
    Here’s 50-41. We continue the countdown every day this week with the top 10 rolled out on Saturday.

    This will be fun! Need to see the full list before we can start bitching about it though.

    However, interesting to see a player ranked 46th was on the bench on Saturday. I wonder where Dave Foley will come...

      Cue provincial bickering.
      He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

            Cant wait to see where Dave Foley is placed, given MicMac is at 46

                Pointless page filter. 50 is too many, mix of Irish and qualified and may qualify and spreading out over 5 days. Pointless even getting worked up over his view on it

                  Shameless clickbait. It doesn't deserve to be dignified with a discussion.

                          TOD at 40.

                          Bwa ha ha ha..

                          He's some Spoofer that Commiskey clown. The arrogance of the whole thing....to assume his own opinion carries such weight.

                            Marmion ahead of Reddan!

                            It also suggests four or even five Leinster backrow players ahead of TOD.

                              Marmion ahead of Reddan is self explanatory really. Its called form.
