Even if O'Sullivan stays there, I think Ireland team willchange face. They can no longer rely on players whose glorious days belong to the past. Horgan, for instance, who was never that fast, should be replaced by some younger winger. Maybe time to mix a few players from somewhere else than Munster in the pack too?
France will have to change coach too, and I suppose a few players will stop their international carreer, but I wonder how the French will handle the defeat to come. Bringing in new players maybe but will we play a game more fluid than the current unimaginative one we play? Or maybe the French will start playing good rugby now and win at least one match, but I doubt it.
