I think a long lie-in will be had tomorrow. Although not too long, obviously, as the match starts at half one, so I’ll have to be up for that. Scotland- you going down! fingers crossed, touch wood, etc etc.
Denis Hickie has been having back spasms and so Geordan Murphy has been called in. I likes Geordan, and was disappointed for him when he was dropped out of the squad last time. Still, it is a great position for the team as a whole when players as good as Geordan can be left out.
There has been some talk of rotating the squad a little, giving some players more game time and resting a few of the others. Obviously with the same squad, pretty much, as last time Eddie O’Sullivan doesn’t agree. And I’ve got to go along with him. We need to win the Triple Crown. The Grand Slam is gone, and the title itself depends on England beating France which I really can’t see happening, but you’d never know. So anything we win’ll be vital. And lets not forget that it wasn’t too many years ago that we couldn’t beat Scotland for love nor money. So a victory is not to be sneezed at.
InnÃ©, chuaigh mÃ© ag imirt pÃ©ile, well, soccer I suppose. NÃ³, sheas mÃ© on the pitch, and kicked a ball once or twice. BhÃ mÃ© ag smaoineamh, agus ceapaim that I haven’t played soccer in something like 15 years. In ainm DÃ©! How old am I?
