Is it possible he joins by his own to face Cheetahs the week after if he doesn't play vs the US?

I read online that Barrett showed disrespect towards bundi after the match.
It did not mentioned what he did, I did not notice it myself did anyone see it?

Can't find anything about that online. Where you see it? He said before the game he was aware of Bundee's ability and wary of it. But can't find anything from after game

W@nker Francis at it again today in the Indo. Only player signalled out for a negative comment was Kieran. Thank God the prick isn't picking the Team.

He picks out Marmion's box kicking, but fails to recall McGraths poor box kick with 90sec remaining, it resulted in NZ getting the ball and gaining 25 meters.

Here is how the NZ Times rated him

Marmion 7:
Replacement for injured Conor Murray but proved he isn't necessarily second best.


To be honest I think he is trolling us.

I've seen more positives written about KM than any player except maybe POM (for obvious reasons). From the Guardian to the NZ Herald, they called out his composure in dealing with fact that NZ were, um, disruptive at the breakdown not to mention his defence rate.

I wouldn't worry too much about that lad has to say. Trolling for page views.

Marmion named in team of the week from all international matches.
Delighted for him, with all the unfair criticism of him m.independent.ie/sport/rugby/internation...the-xv-37542199.html

Hmmm. Marmion is good at filling Murray's void...

It was almost identical to Conor Murray giving away possession at the end of the 2013 game, except luckily this time it didn’t result in a draw.

I was Lucky enough to be at the game on Saturday night, and I'm still on a high after it. Very proud of Kieran & Bundee. Anyway here's my thoughts on Joe's current squad. Would you agree with my opinion that this side are our greatest ever? (see link attached for my article).

Any constructive criticism you might have is welcome as always!

I was at the game on Saturday, one of those where it felt a privilege to be there. Had a bit of an argument with a Leinster supporter before the game, he was giving out about Marmion being picked ahead of McGrath. I saw him again in the pub after the game and he had the good grace to say "I was wrong and Marmion was brilliant" which for me was the cherry on top of the icing on top of a cake made of Guinness.

Heaslip was at it on the commentary for channel 4 throughout the game, constantly singled Marmion out for criticism, particularly his box kicking - after almost every single box kick he said it was a poor kick, when overall they were actually fine and a huge improvement on where he was a couple of years ago. I've heard a lot of people saying he's an excellent commentator but Saturday was my first time watching a game with him co-commentating and after that crap I'm not overly impressed.

Anyway, Schmidt I'm sure can see Marmion's value, there's going to be loads of criticism regardless of how he plays because he's keeping a Leinster player out of the team.

Spot on Bazzo regarding keeping a Leinster player out of the team and we'll get the same stuff when the Six Nations comes around and Endorsement is no longer carrying an injury and the chorus will start up that Bundee be dropped to reunite the Leinster pair in the centre!

So Marmion starting and playing with an injury was preferable to McGrath.

Any chance Mr Francis might take a break from stroking the big, blue phallus to notice this?

I'm looking forward to his reaction to Cooney's first start.

Hopefully this is a real opportunity for Bealham to impress and get a shot at the main team, not a match that will be ignored because it's only the US
