Money is one thing in terms of players, but opportunity is the other. Only four clubs get a shout at up and coming players. Those
players are shepherded through an established country targeted system by international grade coaches. Those of GB and France are spread across a multitude of clubs, and a multitude of systems

We focus on the players here, but we must also look at the coaching structures. The IRFU make sure the best coaches are put in place alongside Irish coaches so the future proofing is working steadily.

And then the IRFU appoint Andy Farrell as Joe Scmidt's replacement. Are they simply saying they don't have an Irishman ready yet?
