More of Eddie’s best bits

Here’s a good one from a recent audio interview with Eddie posted on the IRFU website. When asked about David Wallace’s recovery from his ankle injury and whether he might play both of the first pool games Eddie replied:

“There’s a number of factors to put in the hopper!”

Then, after the humiliation of the Namibia game Eddie explained where it all went wrong:

“39 mistakes is catastrophic in one game. It’s like shooting yourself in both feet!”

Too true Eddie, too true.

Here’s another confusing sound byte for the French when talking about changing the team after a bad performance:

“In 2002 we got ‘hockeyed’ by England at Twickenham and there were a lot of people thinking there should be a slash and burn job on selection.”

He didn’t change the team then and he’s not going to change it now either! Bring on the Georgians!



  1. What does this “change” word you keep mentioning mean?
