Just have to wait for the Welsh commentary teams to learn how to pronounce Tadhg now......

It's the same as Tiger without the R. In case you are wondering.

Samson out for 3-4 months, looks like that is why he was benched in the last test.

We have an injury crisis already, as I'm not sure Kruger will be available until after the SuperRugby season

Yet another player returned to his club from team Wales duty crocked. If he needed what sounds like a serious shoulder injury why was he played in the 3rd test?

This is a big setback for Samson who takes quite a long time to get match fit following an injury. With 12 to 16 weeks out he is unlikely to be up to full match fitness until Xmas.

DH in Irish is like a Y sound in English. So Tayg. Wink   They should go back to the older style spelling in Irish, which was less confusing.


As for Beirne the player, from what I remember he is a rangy second row or 6 with good skills. Certainly looks a capable pro12 player if nothing else.

Either Rushed back for the AIs or being held back to be fresh for the 6Ns I reckon. He could end up next seasons Sanjay, fit for Wales duty, unfit for regional games.

The reports say he is out for 12 to 16 weeks, so he will miss; July, August, September, at least and maybe October as well. With Samson a player who seems to get fit by playing the chances of him be fit and in form before Xmas are slim and playing him in the Autumn tests will not help him or Wales.

The Wales player management really needs to be looked at. I accept there is very little strength in depth but flogging injured players only causes more problems in the future.

I have never heard anyone south of the border pronounce it Taig. That's a term of abuse in nordieland. It's definitely Tige. I know many of them including several relations.

SS. The guy himself is decent enough. Surplus to requirements here with Ian Nagle and U20s Captain James Ryan coming in. He was only retained as WC cover and got all 4 of his caps v Welsh opposition. Released by Leinster.

Is young(ish) Frazier Climo still knocking about for you guys?

What chance does he have of getting first team game time this season?

You know he wants to and is obliged to play for team Wales right? The season hasn't even begun and all of you are already blaming Wales for your season. I don't agree with the extra AI either, but if he still misses that through injury then you don't really have an excuse.

Mikey, try reading the posts before commenting.
No one has a problem with Samson getting injured playing for Wales. Its Wales playing him (and others) when injured, resulting in further complications which results in the need for operations and a long time out of the game.
