Interesting comment. The Christian Brother beat the brad pitt out of me for free.
:D Nice reply to an interestingly twisted and unnecessarily unpleasant remark. Does it indicate a large shoulder chip on justinr73?

Ach you're being a bit hard on Justin. It's quite amusing to see a Westbrit being slegged by somebody who, as an Ulster supporting Lionel, is quite possibly the reverse. Not sure what the term is, Eastpaddy maybe?

UR providing a maximum 3 possible international starters out of 35 ( I am afraid big Stu is there for IR training reasons) is probably a reasonable assessment of our capabilities, pro14 finalists or Heineken quarter finalists or not. Let them get on with it, and we will start the rebuild !

And justin, play the ball, not the man.

Whatever became of Boggymouth? Did BoI hunt him down? Or did the moderators strike?

Does the meteoric rise of keenan provide ample evidence of the halo effect for being part of the leinster set up? I have no doubt had lyttle been in the same position he would be in the Ireland set up by now.

Lyttle is younger than Keenan and outscores him 13 tries to 1.

Unfortunately Lyttle is in some respects too little and not an automatic choice of Ulster the player who should be there and would have been there but is Baloucoune a much better prospect than Lyttle ,

For my money Keenan got the call because like Lamour if the sh-t hit the fan he can go to full back. I can't see Lyttle having that ability and as a winger he Lyttle is average Pro14 good but not great.

And like it or lump it if Earls was fit he'd be picked . I can't see Keenan as a long term solution as an International winger If Sexton comes good.

Actually surprised at PoM being dropped to the Bench despite the fact he has only been at 1/2 the pace for the last 3 years and playing by memory.

How many 15s do you want Rum? Conway and Henshaw are in the 23.

The point is not whether or not Lyttle is good enough but how Keenan, who is hardly an automatic choice for Leinster (!), has walked into the side.

Still, injuries have obviously played a role and it’s a home game against Italy, so good luck to the boy.

POM was never going to start that game in a million years and has scraped onto the bench on versatility grounds alone.
