A friend of mine in Ulster reckons that both Addison and Haley will be in the Irish squad very soon...

I imagine they will. If the IRFU have tempted Will and Mike with test rugby, a) the union need to try them out sharpish with so few games until the RWC squad is announced and b) Iíd guess the union will want to make sure England donít claim them both back.

How can England claim them back if they are playing Ireland?

I assume that Yareet means they are both England qualified, a well as Ireland, so until they play for Ireland, they are potentially available for selection for England,



Unhappiness, where's when I was young
And we didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as a fun and take it if we can

The trick for Schmidt now is to give Addison a few caps this autumn, then come the six nations pick him for the game against England, hope he plays a blinder, then rub it in eddies nose should Ireland win, as he'd be the one that got away!

As much as I always wanted to see him play for England, I really hope Will gets the nod for Ireland (and by all accounts, media/pundits/ex-players, it's going to happen). Playing really well for Ulster atm, even slotting in at 10 a bit.


I'm not sure Haley will get the call up. He's going well enough for Munster but not standing out half as much as Will is. Ireland have a lot of talent in the back 3 and his not really playing anywhere other than 15 will count against him. Larmour, Kearney, Earls, Stockdale, Conway, Addison - Carbery covers 15 too. I can't see there being room for Haley, unfortunately.

More than qualified, they were in the England pathway/wider squads but yes that is what I meant.

The main, perhaps only, problem for Addison is his ability to pick up an injury just as he is beginning to make real progress. a good injury-free run will surely see him get there.

Thought he had a really good game - rock solid at the back, some nice offloading and took his try well.

I might be eating my words when the side is announced!
