RODNEY AH YOU’S inclusion in Joe Schmidt’s 44-man Ireland squad was perhaps the biggest surprise of last week’s announcement for the majority of us, and if he is involved in the Wolfhounds clash with the England Saxons on Saturday, his performance will be watched with particular interest.
The New Zealand U20 cap’s appearance off the bench for Connacht against Saracens provided the Irish province with one of their few highlights on a torrid afternoon. The powerful tighthead prop unleashed this hit on the unfortunate Sarries’ replacement lock Alistair Hargreaves. A few more tackles like this one would certainly go down well at Kingsholm this weekend.
