    James Cronin moving to Tighthead

    It's been rumoured for awhile but the indo had this today:

    Meanwhile, the Irish Independent has learned that Munster's James Cronin is expected to switch from loosehead prop to tighthead before the start of next season
    .

    Well if there is a Silver Lining it is that we can now have both Cronin and Kilcoyne on the park at the same time now.

      Would this be driven by Munster or Ireland?

        Frow what I know, this was a Munster decision taken nearly 2 years ago now.

          rumour it's been experimented with for awhile.

          So

          Kilcoyne/Ryan at LH
          Archer/Cronin at TH

            Hope it works out. You can never have enough grisly bastards in your pack.

            Cronin
            Mr Angry
            Pom
            (hopefully Foley)

            we could do with 1 or 2 more really, you know the kind, the claws, fla's and leams' of this province.

              Hopefully it'll work out. Between injury and whatever, he sort of stagnated this season. Always looked (to my untrained eye anyway) the better scrummager between him and Killer

                Hopefully this turns out to be a masterstroke

                  He's Munster's best LH scrummager and Ireland's second best IMO. Really really hope it works!
                  He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

                    Reading elsewhere that Munster have been preparing Cronin to play TH , surely game time would be the best way of getting him used to the position.

                      True but the injuries this season to so many of the Front Row might have hampered them doing that .

                        He truly IS NuClaw.

                          More of a Crobar I'd have thought.

                            Kilcoyne, Ryan and Archer are all coming along nicely. If Cronin can make a go of it we'll have pretty strong front row resources. They're all reasonably young too.
