First topic message reminder :

The IRFU have been taking care of business whilst the national team have been taking the plaudits for their successful NZ tour series.

A week after the 3rd test, Leinster announced their new IRFU-approved CEO to take over from the long-serving and very successful Mick Dawson.  As the wags put it, they searched Google and came up with their man - Shane Nolan -  a Google executive who happens to be a longtime Leinster fan with a strong remit to build up the commercial side of the business including delivering the revamped RDS stadium and a lot more corporate backing.  

Only a couple of days later, up popped the new CEO of the IRFU, Kevin Potts, to say they’d already sat down with Andy Farrell before he headed off to NZ and agreed a two-year extension to his contract with options to extend further if certain performance markers were met.  Presumably that includes not just winning a RWC quarterfinal for the first time…

Farrell is being given the resources and budget to develop the best squad possible including a stronger input into provincial selections and development of all of his likely RWC squad players.  

One gets the impression that IRFU supremo Kevin Potts is going for broke at his first attempt in securing greater success in the RWC than his long-term predecessor, Phillip Browne, ever achieved.  

The Autumn Internationals should be about developing the wider core of players outside Farrell’s 20-23 already selected cohort of players.  

O’Toole, Loughman, Baird, McCarthy, Timoney, Carbery, Coombes, Casey, Larmour, Hume, Stockdale, Baloucoune, Frawley will need greater club and country time this coming season, with possibly some being played out of their regular starting positions for province.  

All in all, it should be an interesting season starting September.

Wow. Thinking I was right then.

With Eddie Jones contracted until 2030, I feel this is going to be a very long 8 years Sad.

Ross Byrne has been called up to the Ireland squad. Also Frawley to have knee surgery. The frailty of the young Irish fly halves really is quite bizarre. Carberry, Frawley and H Byrne are always seemingly in the doctor's surgery.

Yeah and people call Sexton injury prone. Given how physical Sexton and how long he has lasted I dont agree.

You don't get over a 100 caps being injury prone.

Sadly, I do think that it is time to move on from Carberry. he really is more injured than fit.

As for Sexton being injury prone... I kind of liken him to Wilkinson in that they play the game with an incredible level physicality so will pick up injuries but i would hardly suggest Sexton has been injury prone throughout his career but as he gets older, the body will suffer more with the intensity he plays at.

Papers reporting that Baloucoune to be dropped for O'Brien. Disappointed for Baloucoune but he has been rather quiet in both games. He needs to go looking for the ball a lot more. I'm hoping the papers are incorrect. Also reporting McCloskey to get the nod as well which is fully deserved in my eyes.

Really wierd to think that Jonny Sexton has never been to South Africa, never with Leinster, Ireland, nor the Lions. Never on holiday etc.

A couple of members of theat Aussie team must be commentators nightmares, particularly Nawaqanitawase...
Much easier with solid anglo-saxon or Gaelic names like van der Flier (and yes I know he's Irish of Dutch ancestry)

What a strange game this is. Ireland seem to be treating it as tackle practice, and Wallabies with incredibly naïve tactics which is playing right into it. Wallabies need more variety instead of just passing side to side - get some pick and goes going, actually win your lineout and get mauls trundling to pull players in.

Not much of a spectacle so far.

Absolutely dreadful game, and Ireland will be very relieved in the end that they didn't lose that.

Wallabies again lots of effort but just not getting the win. It's been a horrible year of injuries for the Wallabies and they'll be glad to go home and lick their wounds!

Still got Wales to play before they can go home. Think both teams would happily call it off at the moment.

Oh jeez I'd forgotten about that. Wallabies will have fully run out of steam by then.

Wales will have to pick domestic players only I guess?

It may not have been the best of matches but a win is a win. Ireland used to lose games like that but under Farrell, Ireland have a lot more resolve and belief.
