    Living in Cork isn't that bad Ruck.

    Has anyone actually come out and said he's leaving? Same with Halstead, loads of speculation but very little comment from the players themselves.

    Yes DK yesterday after training when he presented him with a munster shirt at lunch

    The

    surprise exclusion of Christian Cullen, who moves on this summer.
    Cullen’s absence means there will be no send-off for the all-time top

    season-his post kicking is much better. i think hickey had something
    and i expect him to do well at LI
    I'm not being overly precious in defending Manning but look at it
    from Manning's point of view. He spent most of the seaosn playing
    behind a scrum going backward, with an unsettled backrow and an
    unsteady scrumhalf on one side and an unfamiliar IC on the other
    side, is it really surprising he didn't look flash? No-one looked good in
    that team (well, Coughlan had some nice cameos).

    Agree. Give him time and hopefully he will come good. At least he's not scared of putting his body on the line, something that many have claimed about ROG before.

    The thing with Manning for me is he same thing we're currently seeing
    with O'Leary. O'Leary gets a run with the senior team and suddenly he's
    on the plane to Argentina. A run of games with senior team is the only
    way to really judge some players. I've no problem admitting I called it
    wrong on O'Leary, I'm bloody delighted it going well for him. Same with
    Manning, we don't know what he would do if he had our first choice
    pack and Stringer beside him, but I reckon it'd be different player to the
    guy we often see.

    If you accept Warick should be 2nd choice on merit
    the question then stands Joey? Why should we sacrifice results to
    bring through a 10 for Ireland. Ulster wont do it with Wallace.
    Leinster wont even include Sexton or Dunne in 26 man squads ahead
    of the woeful, non kicking, imitation out half Warner.


    Perhaps we should focus on trying to win the ML next season and
    leave the developing young players to other provinces. Its clearly
    what the other provinces are doing from their recruitment. Why
    should we care?
    I don't think we are sacrificing results
    by playing Manning, imo, O'Leary more or less directly cost us 2
    ML games this season, not Manning.
    Now, I'm delighted O'Leary
    is finding form and getting a shot at an Ireland shirt but against
    Llanelli away and Cardiff at home he couldn't kick, break or pass and
    it killed everyone outside him. I'm not looking to tar the guy, but he
    was incredibly poor in those games, virtually everyone I spoke to
    about it agreed.
    Can't agree here Joey. He was out of his depth against Leinster in LR
    in October and cost us a seven pointer with a missed tackle.
    However, I have to say that he is still very young and as has been
    said earlier is no worse than O'Gara at the same age.
    Actually you're right on that, but he was playing fullback so I don't
    count it...
