    You forgot Liam Williams, Scott Williams and Halfpenny.

    The silver lining of that performance is that Gatland now has an excuse to pick a lot of Welsh boyos and leave our lads at home.

    Far as I'm concerned, the fewer Irish players on the plane the better.

    Unfortunately I think Warren is a bit smarter than that and knows he can't win another series by stacking the team with Welsh lumpers.
    True it would be an awful foolish coach that would continually pick his mates from the team he previously worked with regardless of form or fitness....... Oh wait!

    Hear, hear to that. Ireland losing 2 'easy' 6 Nations games against an average Scotland side and a poor Welsh one should help with that.Also with England left to play, who are likely to steam roll this Irish side imho, should at least ensure as small an Irish contingent as possible, on that injury inducing, end of season, brutal junket to NZ as possible. Hallelujah to that anyways!!!

    Fair enough - but the press have been very easy on him.

    You have to wonder if Joe was put under greater pressure how might he react - probably like Howley who was being massacred by the Welsh media and who just stuck to the tried and tested (and they were absolutely sheet against Scotland in the 2nd half) or maybe, just maybe Joe might sit Jamie down and tell him - Sorry Jamie but I really need to shake things up?

    Why start now?

    Yes. We were temporarily wrong footed by an Irish team beating the All Blacks. We can't unring that bell. But we're getting back on the horse and getting all our ducks in a row now. The Irish team under Joe is a different bag of hammers since the loss to Argentina. Eddie is calling it like it is.

    We are quick to turn on our own. We treat Kiwis as some kind of rugby deities and consider ourselves fortunate to be graced by their presence.
    Except when you're in rounds with one.
