Wallace gets the nod ahead of Williams. Moyne is in too
He sure showed me
His positional defence is appalling. But he's got pure pace which Fitzy doesn't
Also any defence with Byrne AND Williams in it, is weak in my opinion. For all Byrne's plaudits, he's not much use as a defending fullback and Williams is just too small for an oppo like the boks.
I do like the front and back 3, although think we might struggle with both POC and AWJ in the side. We are really stuffed if Mears gets injured.
Instead of having a big unit in there. I would've picked Hines just to have a Scot in there.
Apparently Murray is out of the tour, gutted for the big man.
Bowe to cover centre, Super Rob to cover back three.
I'm still gutted Ferris is injured. He would've won the game on his own
He was playing out of his skin.
I would have shoved Hines in there. I'm hoping for a bit of biff in the first 5 minutes, 16 man brawl at the first scrum.
Just like this.
Wally and Heaslip dream team YESSSSSSSSS
you look a much better touring squad without Alistair Campbell.
Good 3rd option in the lineout, quick, good defence, strong, high-energy and stamina...other option is a tackling donkey like worsley or nugget who's skills are fairly limited. Plus with him AND Vickery in the team the yellow-card threat becomes problematic.
I worry the Saffa backrow will toss him around
can't believe he's not even on the bench.
why the fuck take him if he's not big enough?
questionable form and lack of discernible defensive ability might have something to do with it.
His form has deserted him, and in no way deserves a place over Monye of Fitzy, and he doesn't have the ability to cover the whole back 3 like Super Rob
..but you deffo can't have him AND Byrne in defence...

I know little about Kearney, wasn't that impressed with him in the 6N, but happy to be proved wrong. Might be worth calling on Armitage for additional cover.
In the Heineken Cup he's been at his line picking best
BJH is my favourite player of all time. Ireland should invent knighthoods just to give him one. The man is a hero
John Hayes is a man amongst men
People still remember William McGonagle for being the worst poet in the world. If you're going to be bad, you may as well be the worst prop in rugby history.
Al Baxter has existed
although we were admittedly rubbish!
But you mix in the crying and the baldness, and you're left with a truly shocking package
Just because you're national anthem only has the potential to inspire laughter, you don't understand.
I cried when we won the grand slame. Big men cry. It's what they do
I don't have a problem with men crying
I don't even have a problem with men crying during anthems
I just have a problem, specifically, with John Hayes crying
The pre-amble to games against NZ/samoa/tonga must take hours
I can just imagine him blubbing on the flight all the way down there. two seats to himself naturally
And that's because he's hard as fuck.
Seriously, people who slate BJH will have to answer to me
But my playing career path is sadly looking similar to BJH
tight head no doubt awaits
my dad always said, cowards run in our family
try the fish
That man-sized box of tissues can't sit in the aisle
I think he'll do well to make the test team, but then again, there isn't much barring GJ who could say they are better than him
