Kidney failure costs Irish rugby

While Declan Kidney will be forever lauded for delivering the Grand Slam, he has stuttered too often and failed to cultivate the exciting rugby Ireland has expected over the last few years.

Apart from the past weekend, he seems unable to see the potential from Ulster – Andrew Trimble should have been on hand against Scotland.

Kidney seems too comfortable in defeat.

Having beaten Australia in the World Cup, to lose to Wales was simply not acceptable. Either Joe Schmidt or Mark Anscombe (is it too early for Brian O'Driscoll?) will re-ignite Irish expectations.
