Any ref's out there want to explain to me why Wales weren't offside at the turnover leading to the Amos try?

That was strange.
Bit of a farcical game with neither side close to full strength it had a look of an A fixture about it and not sure if caps should have been handed out.

Australia should hopefully provide Ireland with a tougher assignment than that springboks side.
Joe now realises the importance of giving his squad players proper test experience as opposed to throwing them enmasse against lesser opposition.
That way when 5 of your frontliners are unavailable in a world cup quarter final you don't rely on untested options against quality opposition.
A harsh lesson but learnt non the less.

The look of strength and depth in Ireland is better than ever.
Bierne coming in will ensure that no one in the back 5 of the pack can rest on their laurels.
Possibly Sexton is the only man who can such is the healthy competition for places.
That is the only thing that makes this squad look vunerable and love him or loathe him Carbery must get at least a start.

Carbery isn't a 10. Oh sorry I forgot he beat the all blacks.

Paddy Jackson will be that horrible quiz question: who was the best Irish outhalf who never got to be the regular starter for Ireland?

There have been precious few who could have laid claim to that, Paddy by a long long distance.

I would hope that in the shortish - medium term when Janny is no more and Wee Joey shows he is the new Paddy Wallace (i.e someone who should never have been forced to be that round peg in a square hole, neither one a 10, both talented) that Schmidtferbrains will realise he would be a mug to overlook Paddy.

Be interested to know Joe's thoughts but I would have assumed he should have moved heaven and earth to keep Paddy Jackson..
Paddy was clearly his number 2 back up 10 and Joe invested a lot in him.
With Joes attention to detail he must know that without Sexton he has massively reduced chance at the world cup now.
It's the one area we lack depth.

However I couldn't help think that whatever Joe says goes and if he had truely wanted Paddy it would have happened.
His silence spoke volumes and I think he was another startled rabbit in the headlights of a truck load of feminists.

I remember the action taken by the English rugby team before the 2003 World cup over image rights when they went on strike.
Woodward publically admonished them as did the media.
It was only over a few hundred quid but it was the principal and England rugby had to relent or they would not have had a side for the world cup.
Dallagio was very publically caught in a drugs sting but whilst receiving punishment remained an integral part of the side.
Not even a whisper of either event since.

These are examples of the unity, strength and player support that wins world cups.
They all understood the bigger picture

It may just be changing times but I think whilst theres no doubting the talent Ireland have.not one of the great teams that do great things would ever idly sit by and watch their own get shafted.

Well made points gorgeous, anyway, with any luck Australia will ride them ragged though I'm sensing it is not their strongest squad ever.

Schmidt smiles a lot when things are going well but people should not be fooled underneath he is a ruthless cu'nt.
