A quick look at the European stats - Leinster have given 14 starts in this European campaign to NIQs - Munster have 16 - Munster have more sub appearances but on average Munster have 4 NIQ in a match day squad, Leinster have 3. Munster may have two NIQ centres in a 23, Leinster often have 2 NIQ back 3 players (and will do so again next season)
Munster rely more on NIQ - we don't and probably will never have the depth within Munster that Leinster have - and the reasons for that (Population, schools system primarily) aren't going to change any time soon.
Its also very clear that we are developing more and better Irish players - Ryan, Scannell x 2, Sweetnam, JOD etc
You won't stop Paddyor trolling or change his mind. He still thinks Rhys Ruddock will make it as a Six Nations blindside on the back of a masterclass in tackling in Exeter (I think) three years ago against the English Saxons (see signature) Bless him
Funny, but MunsterSugar who seems to have been banned from the forum (he/she was provocative) has had his/her signature with a reference to Paddyor deleted by the moderators.
Troll on Paddy
I remember that year, Ruddock went on to get a 6 nations medal. Was in great form all the way into the 6 nations and captained the Wolfhounds. Handy reminder in the signature. Just the facts.
