Thats a matter of coaches choice though, the players were there if the coach chose to use them. And neither coach over the last decade was infallible when it came to selection. Indeed, Joe Schmidt, for all his success, could be a mediocre selector and made some of the worst selection decisions (including the very worst selection decision this millenium) in the history of irish professional rugby.


What in your mind is the worse selection decision?

Kleyn over Toner at the last world cup. If Devin Toner had passed away in the weeks leading up to the tournament, a stack of Devin Toner In Memorium cards would have contributed more than Kleyn.

I have to disagree. I suppose it would’ve been the kind of thing where Deccie was appointed head coach of Leinster in this millennium, at the end of the day
