With reference to the above, reminds me of the Ireland team pre Brian 'O' Driscol days.One of the pundits when asked why Ireland lost most of their matches in a given period given their strength in depth, pundit replied Ireland have 15 good players, the only problem there are 15 captains in the team on the pitch at any one time.

Ireland didn't have a lot of depth in the 90s. A lot of deeply average players got capped, so would be interesting to know the context there.

I tend to think that the reality is that a lot of our players aren't as good as people think they are (at least not by AP standards). Sure, coaching is an issue, but I don't think clubs will be fighting over too many of them when we go down.
