Good to see that FIRFU are prioritising the Mexican appointments.
We can't even get a toilet attendant.

From the six that have left? Wouldn't think so. Kennedy and Fitzpatrick (both wingers) are with the Ireland 7's squad and neither of them ever even got a sniff of a bench place for the senior side in their combined seven years in the academy.

Charlie Rock may even be smaller than Dave Shanahan while McNulty (hooker) is poor enough.

Cathal Marsh left the senior squad at the end of the season. He's alright-ish.

Charlie Rock may be smaller than Shanahan but he's orders of magnitude better.

Tough last 16 tie against Brazil following their hammering to Sweden. Certainly have paid the price for taking their foot off the gas in their final group game.

Bate me till it. Good question.
I'd personally just ignore them entirely.
Other than it's where we hang a right when heading to Turnipstan, Mexico is of no use to me.

The Ulster squad is going to be fairly heavily depleted without them.
