Did the SRU get in Wayne Smith or someone like that for a few weeks?

Had a good laugh at the Irish Times report from Cumiskey who couldn't resist having a few digs at Munster. He claimed that Penney left Munster because Munster didn't want to renew Simon Mannix's contract (which isn't true as Penney did commit to a 1 year contract extension).

Leo is going to survive with Leinster - he is a wily old fox. Graham Henry is just a PR exercise. Very Happy


Its not to favourable to Munster alright.


"Only Foley and scrum coach Jerry Flannery were retained following the appointment of Rassie Erasmus as director of rugby. Erasmus will oversee team selection and all on-field coaching, primarily attack, while fellow South African Jacques Nienaber was hand-picked to tighten the Munster defence.
Foley remains the head coach in name but his responsibilities have been curtailed to coaching lineout and breakdown."




Is that true? Massive demotion if it is. Im surprised Foley stayed on with such a reduced role.

Foley should have walked away from that insult.  Well it is one.  You can't bury your head in the sand and re-classify it to something positive.

I'd walk away or I'd insist the title of Head Coach was handed to someone else.  It's bad enough being demoted without being patronised with the shell of a Title.

Its Gavin Cumiskey's interpretation of what Foley is! Gavin Cumiskey (ex-Blackrock College) is there to provide 'balance' to the Irish Times coverage. He clearly hasn't a clue about anything in Munster as he was surprised recently to discover that Munster had two training centres Very Happy

His comment about Rob Penney is also incorrect. Penney had agreed a 1 year extension on his contract and while Munster did not want to extend Simon Mannix's contract, that is not the reason Penney left (for the record it was the money in Japan).

Graham Henry is working with Leinster as a coaching consultant. Should be great for Leo and Girve.

From.... a year ago or from next season? ....by post, express mail, e-mail, facebook or twitter?

I'm suspicious of Graham - I think he must be earning a lot of loot doing armchair consultant from his own home for teams all over the world.  He gets sent the weekly videos - he gives a few wisecracks about the idiot at 15 and collects the fee.

Is he going to be resident in Ireland?

Hes doing a review of last season and will be in Dublin in August for a few weeks to observe training etc and will give feedback on training and tactics

Sure the only attacking tactic Leinster have had for the past 2 seasons is to give the ball to Teo and hope he creates something now he's gone...seems like a waste of a consultancy fee to me.

The best thing about the Gerry Thornley parody twitter account when it was still around was his constant disparaging of Cummiskey as Le Petit.

Yeah, it was embarrassing being top of the League this year with all the killer run/spurt/dodge/weave/offload sides that electrified the competition this year. Cool

I was ashamed. Hopefully, Graham will now advance our detail and give us more complex attacking strategies "Give the ball to Rob". Rob will be re-invented. Watch this space.

It'll be no more "Isa, Isa" from the stands. It'll be replaced by "Give it to Rob, Give it to Rob".

Foley's coaching role is breakdown & Lineout (extra responsibility for lineout from Mick O'Driscoll). He always coached the breakdown.
Erasmus's coaching role is attack (replacing Brian Walsh)
Felix Jones is a technical coach (covering some of Ian Costelloe's remit of skills coach)
Nienaber is Defence Coach (replacing Costelloe)
Jerry Flannery is Scrum Coach (same as was). Rob Penney was scrum coach before him. Flannery also coaches age grades.

I think it's key that Ireland get fired up and start well tomorrow. They need to gain parity in the collisions and build from there. If they lose the collisions (like the arg game) then it could be tough.
I think the changes by Joe are very smart, not only does it introduce an element of competition for places and freshness, hopefully the fellas who come in will add to the hunger of the team as they haven got a win of their own yet

I've read some people suggest on other sites, that they think Joe is resting players with his aim being to win the 3rd test and use this for experience, I think this couldn't be further from the truth.

It makes sense to rotate the squad so that the players not involved in what would have been the very tiring 1st test get to come in fresh, in what will be another tiring game and make full use of the squad.

The beast was dominating scrums even when CJ Stander was on, Ross not being a young pup is best saved for the 3rd test, and use Roux's bulk to tighten up the tightend side of the scrum with Henderson.

Give starts to fresh players very close to the 1st team, Gilroy and Olding start O'Halloran on bench

Healy unlucky to lose out, but I think starting him instead of Trimble would have been too many changes and not enough experience in the backs, and bench spot is already taken

Reddan, well its better to have Marmion,

its fantastic to see that we can have injuries and rotate so many players in and still feel like we could beat South Africa away.

I don't think there has even been a time in Irish rugby where we have had such depth. Normally if one or two people are not fit we only hold a hope of beating SA.

BJ Bothas thoughts

“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time”– Confucius

I used a quotation by Confucius to describe the enormous achievement of Irish Rugby in coming out on top in Cape Town.

It was always going to be a tight affair with the Irish side having a point to prove, sending a young but exciting side out to face a completely new Springbok outfit with little experience left over from the 2015 RWC.

The bookies had written off the Irish side, and had actually anticipated a win by a margin in excess of 15 points. I was, however, more skeptical than the rather sombre mood that embraced the Irish media, and believe that the issues off the field played a big part in preparing for the first Test.

Appointments such as Head Coach and Captain are of the utmost importance for moving forward, especially in a relatively young and inexperienced Bok side. That being said, one cannot take away the enormity of this occasion for the Irish players and supporters, as it has not been an easy run in with a disappointing Six Nations campaign and early World Cup exit.

However, this weekend will be an entirely different affair.

Ellis Park is a special place to play but daunting for any opposing team. The Irish will have a lot more to deal with and will find it tough to prepare for; namely the altitude, the crowd and fortress of Ellis Park.

I have been carefully following the South African media, with some calling their performance in Cape Town “the worst in the history of South African rugby”.

There were some who claimed that the defeat to Ireland was worse than that which was suffered at the hands of Japan.

I, however, view this a little bit differently, and believe as set out earlier, that the Irish side that went over to South Africa was a lot better than people gave them credit for, and they were extremely well coached. I was also slightly more optimistic about the South African team and their performance.

I saw glimpses of good things to come.

The Springboks work at the breakdown in the first 40 minutes, as well as the speed at which they were able to get ball out of the loose phases, was extremely encouraging for them, and at times it appeared that they were building a combination or two of something really good coming off.

I accept that the combinations may not have come off in the First Test, but many of these players were playing together for the first time.

The Irish side on the other hand will unfortunately be missing Irish player of the year, CJ Stander, whose presence will definitely be missed this weekend.

This weekend’s rugby promises to be another mouthwatering occasion to witness a wounded Springbok side looking to bounce back in
a venue that is a cauldron, and if Ireland are to win the Test Series, it is going to take a far stronger performance than the one on display in Cape Town

Fair play to you eirebilly. You have her well trained. thumbsup


Yeah I'm looking forward to it too. I think Olding's selection could be a masterstroke. Marshall was very good last week but Olding brings an x factor and a bit of unpredictability. It might be a sign that Schmidt wants to (finally) play a more expansive game. The team is a gamble but I've been calling out for more risk taking from Schmidt so I'm satisifed.

The selection last week could have been seen as forced (I certainly think it was forced) but may have opened Schmidt's eyes a bit there prof. This is not a forced selection and is very balanced and I cant be more happy to see Gilroy and Olding given a chance against SA.

It shows an approach from Schmidt that I have also been wanting for some time.

Going to watch the soccer now and wait for the game to start thumbsup

12-3 ahead. Surely Ireland need to play the joker and get the match called over now. Or am I thinking of a different game?

You hear the crowd on the Springboks back here. Ireland putting all the pressure on the Boks, our back three and halfbacks just controlling the territory and then when they do get in our half every breakdown is slow, the balls getting ripped...

This is almost exactly what we did to them in 2014.

Payne again has been excellent from 15 but Ruddock has been the best player for me. He has been everywhere and constantly breaking the gainline. Henderson has also been excellent at getting across the gainline.

Wow this is awesome.

I don't want to get ahead of myself but I think England and Ireland might well be the top two in the 6N for the next couple of years. Both seem to be on the up and finding talent. With France struggling to sort themselves out and Wales maybe the other side of the slope I think it is possible.

Scotland may disagree but it's hard to know with them not touring one of the best sides.

All that said, I expect the Boks to come out on fire in the second half, they are the team with everything to lose here. That could be good for Ireland if the game opens up.

Well done to Sean Reidy winning his first cap. He's come a long, long way in the last two years.

They've certainly come out on fire ! Think Ireland did well to stop that attack.

Could be a lively few minutes here...

Ireland snuffed it out in style. At the moment they are just flat out better.

Be interesting to see how SA go in the RC, we haven't seen the SH dominance outside of NZ at all (though Aussie will be keen to reassert it next week now they are a wounded wallaby).

South African crowd on the verge of rioting at their team's scrum performance.

Indeed : has been quite a turnaround from the World Cup ...

NZ still the ones to beat though.

I have no idea why La Roux is booed all the time. He is such a balanced runner and all attacking play from the Boks has come through him.

This is a stuffing at the moment, complete Irish dominance.

All these tries ...I'm wondering if I'm watching a highlights reel Smile

Still fancy Ireland to close this out with an eleven point lead ; but SA aren't going to die wondering...
