    I would say that teams have sort worked out how we play and know how to counter-act us ~ Scotland are something of a flake-y outfit ~ Against anyone but England at the moment.

    Funny enough old Six Nations this year ~ All be it, entertaining enough.

    Anyway we certainly are not as good as the Dublin media talk us up ~ I would say that South Africa, New Zealand, France with Dupont, and maybe even France in the right frame of mind, Perhaps England from now on are better than us ~ Certainly the first three of those, and maybe all four.

    Certainly some of the present Irish panel are at the end or near it ~ It will be interesting to see if Farrell will be able to get the same or better replacements.

    That’s a hot take. For example, we’ve coped fantastically with the loss of Sexton, arguably one of the greatest players of his generation. There’s a bit of a conveyor belt of Irish talent and that’s recognized broadly across the sport - and practically through the success of Irish underage teams. There’s many media pundits and former players from around the globe (not just Dublin media) that are talking about how Ireland are set to be at the top table for at least the next 5-10 years and how it’s down to how the system has been set up from top to bottom, the quality of coaching etc.

    It’s one sport where we’re actually run really professionally, really well - in that it’s something we should be proud of.

    The schools set up in Dublin with professional coaches feeding into the leinster academy and to a lessor extent the other provinces has us in a great position. The best young kids are being coached to a high level from junior Cup level at 14yrs old

    Just won the home nations for the second year in a row.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.
