Plus 1 Rum.
As I said on another thread Ben Stokes is repaying his set up for the backing they showed him.
He feels the need to repay the faith.
With Ireland it's the exact opposite effect.

I predicted that this side would unravel after the PJ /SO affair as it demonstrates a set up packed with self serving, weak willed individuals run by arrogant sycophants.
Who wants to show for this shower?
No fecker!

There's more to rugby than a wage packet.
When it goes wrong you need to believe in each other and the set up to get you through the tough times.
Ireland are unravelling, momentum is spiralling and no-one can stop it as the seeds of ill will have been well and truly sown.
World cup failure is justifiably inevitable with little sign of a feminist rallying cry to be heard.

Murphy, Marmion and Addison kept in the training squad this week so assume they're on standby for the WC.

Heard a rumour that Toner wasn't included in the final squad because they couldn't get a big enough bed for him in Japan.

Big Dev doesn't sleep, he just lays there in wait.

I met Toner once. A total gentleman even with an Ulster supporter. Disgusted with the decision to drop him and include incomer Klein who has yet to show he has any ability in playing at international level.

Kleyn isn't even Irish, hate the residency rule. Makes a farce of playing for your country.

Anybody with an hour or two to spare care to put together a list of how many players from each Pro14 team will be going to Japan? Any team with fewer than Ulster's three?

Would imagine the Dragons, plus the 2 Saffer teams won’t be contributing many either.

Is the Ulster contingent not 2 also anyway these days, with Hendy and Stockdale?
