Never a dull moment with Declan Kidney. On the surface he may be the dullest man in Ireland but Kidney is essentially placing his future in international rugby management on the shoulders of wee Paddy Jackson. Shunting BOD aside was one thing, but personally I could never imagine him turning his back on his Cork soul brother.
Via Brendan Fanning, who does not report rumour on the Ireland, merely facts yet to factify in the public domain.
Paddy Jackson in line for start v Scots - Rog on bench. Kidney has just made the biggest call of his coaching career
