    He wears them. No problem. Except he can't play in Ireland when his team do because of the IRFU rules iirc.

      correct
      "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

      Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

        I don't fancy the mini coaches this weekend who have to clamp down on Goggle wearing kids who play with them. They were never allowed play but logic prevailed until the IRFU reaffirmed their stance on it.

                  I love the word "accepted" onto the trial.
                  Tic-Toc. POC and DOC. Stop the clock.

                    It seams they had to (were forced to from public outcry) "apply" to be accepted into the trial. I heard McKinkley on the radio one morning talking about how he couldn't play when his team was on Irish turf. Bizarre really the IRFUs heretofore pigheadedness on this one.

                      and for all those amateur players who need to wear goggles of medical purposes, and were heretofore excluded from full-contact rugby.

                        But hasn't he gone back to playing with Viadana? I think he was only WC cover with Zebre

                          Yeah, he did. You're right and forgive my lack of deeper knowledge, but I don't know what remote possibility there would be for Viadana playing on Irish turf if they were to get back into the Almost Sooper Dooper Goblet Challenge. It does mean though that he would now have the option to play on Irish turf if the opportunity were ever to present itself. I don't know the man and perhaps he loves living in Italy, but it would be nice to know that you're not essentially banned from playing in an Irish club.
                          I suppose more importantly, as duly noted above:
