Ronan O'Gara

The recovery of the Munster and Leinster players, who played so poorly in the Rugby World Cup, notably Ronan O'Gara, has been so striking that the fingers pointing at Eddie O'Sullivan have got even longer and more insistent. If Declan Kidney (Munster) and Michael Cheika (Leinster) can get so much more from the players that Eddie O'Sullivan failed with so spectacularly, doesn't that say something? And among the thing it says is that Declan Kidney should be preferred as the national coach. And soon.
