Always a bit on the Darren Anderton end of the psychosomatic spectrum for me was old Lukey!

Check out craggyrugby.com/index.php/2019/09/11/aki...connacht-connection/ for the stats on why the Bundee/Robbie partnership might be the one of choice for the RWC

Lukey had no issue with project players when Richard Strauss was getting his Ireland caps - He is a hypocrite.

Great article with Bundee in the times today:

“Connacht have supported me from day one when I first arrived and Galway, everyone knows how friendly they are and how they are such good people. Look, I call it my home at the moment and I’m sure people will feel like I’m one of them as well.”


and

“I have shed a few kilos, but that’s just me losing a bit of fat that I’ve had for a few years,” he says, laughing. “I’ve been enjoying the Supermacs a bit too much.


I just cannot imagine him digging into a snackbox, tbh.

What do you reckon he means by at the moment?
This is his last year of his contract I think.


Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

I'd say he's just keeping his options open. I don't think anyone would be surprised if made more plying his trade in France or the UK - or even head back to NZ if family obligations changed etc.

Hey, shame they had to call off that match at 20 minutes this morning, eh?

In all seriousness - fair play to Japan. Utterly fearless, had us totally sussed once they got into the game. Jack and Murray fulfiled their kicking role well, but the role chosen for them was shown up in a major way today.

Some party in Japan tonight, well deserved. Hope they are able to bring that to bear against Scotland. All Blacks QF here we come.

Re: "Hope they are able to bring that to bear against Scotland" - if we can get 10 from the last 2 games (bigger if than yesterday I know) then we would have 16, Scotland can't beat 15.

Of course, Scotland are playing Samoa tomorrow so we could find ourselves third!

So, no Connacht representation on the bench tomorrow. Strong team out, of course, but you'd have to think that KM and Bundee would have added something to the mix (especially Kieran, I don't think McGrath has shown himself to be a better SH).

So Bundee would have been rested for 2 weeks anyway, doesn't change anything on the Connacht POV, back for Leinster game at home
What about Carty? Didn't play too much recently, may he go to Swansea?

“I was looking at both 15s and I wouldn’t swap anyone – I actually think New Zealand might take one or two of our players if they had the choice” - Jamie Heaslip, Saturday 19th October, prior to kick off in the Ireland vs New Zealand World Cup Quarter Final.

What a plonker. I have been listening to some of the postmortem and there is repeated criticism of the role of media and commentators, mostly how they are too close to the team to analyze them properly - that quote from that plonker immediately sprang to mind.
