Paddy Jackson & Stuart Olding -treat women poorly


#241

Based on that one could legitametly argue that the pressure was on the IRFU


#242

Presumably the out half exception for Ireland selection that applied when Jonny Sexton was at Racing will also be applied here and Paddy will be eligible for Ireland selection when he moves to Clermont?


#243

Ah yea, I presume so, I mean I can’t think for the life of me of any reason why it wouldn’t.


#244

Clermont is the home of Michelin tyres. Hopefully “Paddy” will have a more plentiful supply of rubber available to him during his time there than he did in Belfast.


#245

Is Alan partridge your hero?


#246

No. Is he yours? Because you’re doing a very good job of impersonating him.


#247

This is getting tyresome @Sidney


#248

Ah haaaa


#249

IRFU ended up paying value if their contract anyway so paying them for the season and letting them cool their heels was an option that was worst outcome for the players.


#250

Jackson will need to tread warily in France.


#251

Getting to play international rugby likely a bridgestone too far


#252

He’ll be hoping for some goodyears during his continental sojourn.


#253

It seems his victory in court has turned out to be some what pirellic.


#254

:joy:


#255

Ah haaaaaa


#256

“Paddy” is more likely to receive hub caps rather than international caps in France.


#257

Paddy’s career has had a blow out in more ways than one.


#258

He hasn’t been having a goodyear


#259

You’re wearing out the threads


#260

He needs to remould himself.
