Ulsterman to lead Ireland

Lets hear it for Eddie O’Sullivan. Not only is David Humphries starting the game on Saturday against Romania, but he’s to lead the team. Arguably this is the first chance he’s had to take risks with the team, but New Zealand’s superlative performances demonstrated that you need to a squad not simply a single team to compete in world rugby. Let’s hope his change of strategy pays dividends on Saturday!
