For those of you that travelled over, thanks for coming and I hope we'll see everyone again. Nice atmosphere at the match but boy was it cold!

Just an answer re Farrell and the Irish coaching job. I think Farrell's appointment was as much about continuity than about there not being an Irish person ready yet. Mark McCall, Conor O'Shea are two that come to mind and obviously Leo Cullen would be in with a shout too I think but it probably would go against what appears to be a fairly well thought through plan. I think the plan is to get the best coaches available it provincial level and let their coaching filter up into the national side as evidenced by Munster getting Larkham and Rowntree in this year.

Anyway, I enjoyed the forum and good luck for the future guys.
