Hmm.. the Eif detractor bandwagon are 100% wrong here..

Adam Jones (as dragonboy notes) came on very early in the game (I was sat behind the posts thinking we've got this in the bag..) and played out of position.. he was also carrying a knock, unfit to play 80mins and from memory Quins also went down to 7 in the pack
Yet we got stuffed in the scrum on Hilly's side the entire game - AJ was immense

Same thing happened to PH vs Leinster and also vs Tigers

No-one is writing off PH - Eif is making the point that very experienced props will make a point of tearing into youngsters with big reputations.. one learns and as we saw towards the end of the season, they come back stronger

In the media love for all things big hit / 40yard carrying / pseudo 7 turnovers - one can forget the point of a prop is to scrummage, to hit 40-50 rucks, to stand at guard in a non-shall pass capacity and to be a key part of the lineout..

It's all good
