    Early days yet. Whether the more expansive approach will work in the next three fixtures is the real test. Especially now the French seem to have got their act together.

                Here is why he deserves international recognition - as a young player he saw he wasn't getting game time in Leinster so he backed himself and moved west where he helped Connacht out of many potential losing situations. He then wanted to push on with is own career so he moved south to compete with one of the all time great outhalves and local legend at the end of his career. He helped bring a team largely in transition to HEC semis and played well in them. He struggled to lock down his place but kept working bloody hard day in day out and doing what the squad needed. 4 years ago he went to Rome and started at 10 for Ireland in a season where we won the championship. His kicking that day is part of why the record books will show we won that year. He got little or no recognition for that with Joe pushing him aside for the later games. When things were bad at Munster for the last few years he stuck with it and battled through arseholes like yourself throwing abuse at him and claiming to be supporters. He kept his head up and kept working hard.

                So with over a decade of training like a dog, playing in the ****tiest of pitches (Dave Parade, sportsground, Zebra - nevermind his time in AIL with Clontarf) and keeping his mental health up through rough patches and the death of his mentor and friend I for one was delighted to see him score the try that got us a home q in Europe and to get on the pitch today and play with his head up and a smile. He's a young man that deserves much more than scum like you. And yes your entitled to your opinion, but the flip side of that coin is that you're also entitled to be told your a scumbag for having it.

                  Munster players are having increasing influence on this Irish team.........got to be good for both.

                    more than a weekend off, I think.

                    I'm only catching up on the thread now, but I think a break until the end of the 6 nations is more appropriate?

                      Took a few potshots at Ian in the leadup to the game too.

                        I would like to put some oil on the discussion... After all, CJ and Craig Gilroy scored only three tries, i.e. 15 points... Paddy score 9 conversions, i.e. 18 points. So, Paddy for MotM!!!!!!












                        No, I only was teasing! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
                        The Scots (originally Irish, but by now Scotch) were at this time inhabiting Ireland, having driven the Irish (Picts) out of Scotland; while the Picts (originally Scots) were now Irish (living in brackets) and vice versa. It is essential to keep these distinctions clearly in mind (and verce visa).

                              You won't see me in that place. Not a word of a Lie, but I was refused entry to there one Tuesday night because I was wearing a Munster Jersey.

                                Facking Cummiskey again! Jamie Heaslip gets the same rating (8) as CJ. Don't get me wrong Jamie was good but CJ imperious.

                                Also mentioned if 2 try Earls might be under pressure from the returning Andrew Trimble?
