FRANCE 44, IRELAND 5

 

SEAN HOBAN,

Sir, - In the interests of Irish Rugby, the IRFU Committee of Six should bring Warren Gatland back. His greatest coaching talents were forward, scrum and lineout play. Since his departure, whether in victory or defeat, our team's performances in these areas have been dismal. We need Gatland immediately. Otherwise, our tests against New Zealand in June will also have the greatest margin losses in history. His dismissal by the IRFU was not only disloyal but stupid and a significant disservice to Irish rugby. - Yours, etc.,

SEAN HOBAN,

Streamstown,

Westport,

Co Mayo.
