The Irish Team coach Joe Schmidt declared his team that will be heading to Japan for this season of Rugby World Cup 2019. There were certain additions and omissions giving surprise to all.
When one starts with the training and a few are to be excluded, given that all of them are competent and talented enough, it becomes difficult whom to be kept and who to be omitted.
In the current team declared, one of the surprise omission was Devin Toner who was replaced by a much younger player Jean Kleyn who has only two caps to his credit so far. Toner had suffered a ankle injury which may be a reason for his exclusion from the team. Toner has been present in Schmidt’s 60 out of 70 tests.
Another omission was seen of Jodhi Murphy & Kieran Marmion and also alongside it adds to the fact that physicality is one of the major factors for selections for the big event.
