Half-back conundrum still a worry for Andy Farrell despite landmark Ireland victory

As they say a win is a win so we’ll take Saturday’s victory but it was low on attacking quality or cutting-edge creativity.

n the end, we got there thanks to Ross Byrne’s nerves of steel, so often on display as a like-for-like kicking replacement for Johnny Sexton when closing out for Leinster on a regular big-match basis. Andy Farrell and Mike Catt are looking for more from their game-manager at ten but, with less than 12 months to go, don’t rule out the Leinster No 2 as that ultra-reliable bench replacement for the World Cup.
