Interesting week with both Wales and England changing head coach due to performance issues and very late in the RWC cycle. Ireland are in a good place by comparison.

South Africa did the same the year before the last World Cup and won it!!

Ireland will eventually break their duck and get to the quarter finals this time then fill the togs. Blue scour all down the legs

You sound like a right barrell of laughs!  This team has worked its way to no 1 rating in the world, no matter what happens at the World Cup you have to admit that's some achievement.

They are not afraid of anyone, can play against any style and have a strong panel .
The lads hanging out of Etzebeth in the recent match against Sith Ifrika would be a good example.

It certainly is but until we get a good run in a WC there will always be an "underachieved" moniker hanging over this team as the talent is obviously there, it's just that we make a mess of world cups.

Feck the upcoming 6N's, work at getting greater strength in depth in key positions, outhalf being one of them, decide who the No2 and No3 outhalf is going to be and give them serious gametime. Sexton needs to be wrapped in cotton wool at this stage anyway.
