Well Eddie it doesn't if you think Johnny O'Connor deserves a place ahead of either Shane Jennings or Keith Gleeson. This is pure politics no matter what way you look at it, Keith Gleeson was left out of the World Cup squad and we sat and watched David Wallace have a pig of a tournament without there being another genuine openside available to replace him, I thought you would have learned your lesson, but obviously not.
Both Gleeson and Jennings are playing out of their skins at the moment but you can pick Wallace and O'Connor ahead of them, IDIOT, whatever about Wallace, O'Connor should not be there and you must know this.
With O'Connell out where is your leader in the pack ? Easterby maybe and lets face it if he breaks both his legs you will still pick him, but other than him there isn't one, because Jennings and Gleeson aint there.
It will also be interesting to see what the second row will be, come the first game, considering you haven't thought about Leo Cullen for a few years. Will Heaslip (The in-form player) get the No.8 jersey or will it be Leamy, no matter what happens ?
Tommy Bowe, Gavin Duffy and Johnny O'Connor are not of international standard unless we are talking Germany or Spain. Gleeson should be in for his work on the ground and around the field and so should Jennings ON FORM ALONE.
At least you dropped that jessie Isac Boss, we should be thankful for that much.
I HATE TO SAY IT BUT I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CONFIDENCE LEFT IN YOU OR YOUR MANAGEMENT TEAM. THE IRFU SHOULD HAVE SACKED YOU AFTER THE FIASCO IN FRANCE BUT AT THIS STAGE THEY ARE MORE INTERESTED IN COVERING THEIR OWN ARSES AFTERALL THEY DID GIVE YOU THAT NICE NEW 4 YEAR CONTRACT.
EDDIE O'SULLIVAN, PLEASE STAND UP & FUCK OFF !!!
