      Having watched both Munster and Leinster fail in basic skills this weekend, do you think that this coach may have a point?
      Only fools and drunks argue over everything. If you don’t have a hangover the next day you’re not the drunk...

        I think most of them are far too afraid of making a mistake so go for the easy option of going to ground.

          If players are playing with that much fear then there's an argument they're just not very good rugby players.

            No seriously though. Bringing more matches to Cork makes sense. Is a full stadium in Cork not better than a half empty one in Limerick?

            Stringer is bigger even than his own immense shadow. Pound for pound, he is the best tackler in the world. If you put him into bag of cats he\'d come out without a scratch. He was hit very late for Murphy\'s try. And when he got up, as we knew he would, the crowd cried his name as if he had just fixed the economy.Billy Keane-After Munster\'s famous loss to the AB\'s.

                Whether it's a full or empty stadium, low quality rugby won't be put up with..

                Sh!T rugby is sh!t rugby.. Nobody wants to watch it...

                  I don't think anyone is blaming Schmidt for a lack of skills, they are saying that Schmidt's directive for soulless, dull efficient, rugby has taken the joy out of the game for players and supporters alike. Ireland is trying to play Orc rugby without the power to carry it off, maybe that is why there is such an apocalyptic injury list across the Island.

                    Depends on the costs. Rest easy though because it'll never happen.

                        There is no hope, the hope went out the door to Northampton which was endemic of our culture of conservatism and cronyism. All those "fans" who shot down any and all criticism towards Keatley/Williams/Archer/Hurley with a "get behind the lads" or justified horrific performances because it was "only the Pro 12" got what they deserved in the end. It's too late to be demanding now, the horse has bolted. The club was allowed to coast on ridiculous decisions for years enabled by "it'll come good eventually" mindset and this is the consequence.

                          Yes, but only if Newstalk have Special Effects Microphones on hand.

                                I think he's playing a game plan that suits the Skill levels of the players at his disposal. Whether you think it's incumbent on him to raise the skill levels during the training camps is another thing.

                                the dross that Leinster played under MOC paid a huge disservice to the national cause, the sharpness and eye for the game quickly disappeared with Leinster trying to bosh it up, while this worked fine against the minnows in the pro12 it was found out v the big boys.
