    Whilst we are dreaming, BiggMatt and The Z would be some duo to bring into the side

Farrell & Scannell prob won’t go to the World Cup if Henshaw, Ringrose & Aki are fit. At a time we’re trying to balance books and pay of debt I see no logic or potential in this move.

      Hopefully all a load of boll*x! But worried RTÉ are reporting it.
      Maybe Munster are expecting Farrell to go and are looking for short term cover at 13.
      He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

        He could show some of our forwards how to poach.

        Balls, not eggs.

          I have no real objection to us signing him- a for a bit of short term sparkle. However, what I’d really prefer is to use the fact we have a handy conference, and a WC going on that gives us an opportunity to try to see what JJ/TB can do at 12, give Arnold and Goggin, and maybe Nash a run outside, and see how we go.

          Recruiting someone like Basterau would just be a distraction from developing the game we need to enable us to make sustained progress. He’s a one off, even if he did famously for us til December, we would then need to develop different game plans for when he wasn’t there. He would inevitably prevent one of those mentioned above from playing- and that’s where the future lies.

            Very possibly he's travelling for personal reasons. He can get absolutely pissed without having any obligation to his country or Macron having to apologize for him. That must be quite a revelation for him

              Aye, and a return for Nick Williams too while we're at it. May as well think big.
              Tis but a scratch.

                    Mushy had good hands. I'd say scrumhalf.

                      Like the way we’re thinking here, a few of those “French” props and we’ll need a double decker team bus

                            Wood be great if it happened. Put plenty of bums on seats.

                              "To be energetic and self-sufficing is to be happy; but while one desire remains in the heart happiness may not come there. For to desire is to be incomplete: it is the badge of dependence, the signal of unhappiness, and to be freed from that is to be freed from every fetter that can possibly be forged." (James Stephens, Deirdre)
