Well done Strings, great career, great servant to Ireland.
Wonder will he open up a club - Peter Strings?


#3688

Hell look really messed up when he hits 50 & above :joy:


#3689

Well there is a vacancy :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:


#3690

… and he’d know a few hookers.


#3691

The bank could prop him up til he gets up and running.


#3692

Would you have to be over 22 to get in?


#3693

Unless you could out-flank the bouncers!


#3694

That could cause a bit of a ruck


#3695

A lot of big lads in the front row seats.


#3696

Might hire a few ladyboys from Leinster


#3697

Sam Warburton retired. only 29. Just shows the attrition of it all. Thank god in our sports you can be 5 foot nothing as they say, and barring serious bad luck, play away hassle free for as long as you want.


#3698

Read O’Driscoll and Ferrris autobiographies on hols. BOD has had his vertebrae fused among other things - Ferris’ ankle is in shite - among other things. I doubt there’s a pro player that won’t carry some injury legacy into his middle age.


#3699

concussion or other injury?


#3700

Thankfully not. Only glanced at the article but he’s had neck surgery and was unable to get back playing.


#3701

I can see it where very few (if any) play rugby beyond 18 or 19 years of age unless they play professionally. A bit like American football.


#3702

Unbelievable. Some people will just never learn.


#3703

Going by the bould Dylan Hartley antics this will probably get Cipriani back in the team.


#3704

He was only just back in the team :joy:

Can’t even claim to be young anymore


#3705

It’s the real reason the English underperform at rugby. Their players are arrogant dick heads.


#3706

Dylan Hartley isn’t arrogant.
A dickhead, however, he is.
