2 hamstring recoveries inside a week is a pretty tall order[/quote:022d52201c]

It all depends on the severity of the injury. It is apparently a minor strain, which isn’t a big issue at all really. A few days of rest and some massage can clear that up.

But if they tear their hamstring, forget about it!

I think that half the reason the Irish win is because of their determination. They seem to have this aura about them.[/quote:022d52201c]

True, that could be said about them maybe 4 years ago, when it was all about the Irish spirit and pride. But nowadays we have some of the best players in the world, and our form is mainly down to our fitness, skills, conditioning, coaching staff etc. Pride and grit does play a part of course, but only in that it can tip the balance in a very close encounter with a good team. The days of Ireland winning with determination and pride alone are long gone.
