Noel Reid in Argentina, does it mean McSharry has his chance for Emergin' Ire?

Ah You to make the Argentina tour as Moore is forced to withdraw


Fair play to Rod the Bod. Hope he gets capped but it will be a great experience for him. EE and McFarland have a right to say I told you so.

7 tries in 15 games at centre? Not that crazy at all.

I have to say that I thought it was a Leinster based decision, can't say that it would have been the first name on my list.

Just saw this on the irfu site, big surprise but obviously a personal decision.

Have to agree. Surely J.J. Hanrahan would be in front of him? Reid isn't a bad player but he strikes me as an unfinished article. That said Joe has a good eye for talent but think he's got it wrong here. Obviously hope I'm wrong.

Not just down to pecking order, but injury/availability too of course..
From my sources in the know, Reid has been Leinster's most improved back this season...

He's looked good and seems to found his position as a 12 rather than a ten and with the lack of centres in Ireland it's probably a good idea to bring him so he gets used to the systems but I just think Hanrahan is ahead of him in the curve at the moment.

McCarthy out of the emerging Ireland squad with injury. Donnacha Ryan now captain. Barry Holland, Ricky Lutton and Stuart McCloskey added to it. Will intrigued to see how McCloskey does I've being impressed when ever I've seen him play.

Does anyone know if the Ireland vs Argentina match is being televised? Can't see it in the papers.

Looking forward to the game, but even without Argentina's reserves there are some concerns. Not sure about Henderson behind Ross. The backrow is underpowered. Jones does not impress me although he has his moments he doesn't seem consistent.
