    It would appear that Rob Kearney will have to sit out the opening match of the World Cup against Scotland on Sunday to nurse a calf injury back to full working order.

    The decision to take one specialist full-back to the World Cup was understandable and only open to inquisition should Kearney come undone.

    Presuming Kearney’s calf won’t be risked, the selection would appear to come down to a straight choice between Andrew Conway and Jordan Larmour to step up given the likelihood Robbie Henshaw will also be sidelined by injury.       

    There isn’t a player who has worked harder for longer to get where he is than Conway.

    It is a rare occurrence to witness the transformation of ‘the next big thing’ from a one-on-one Leinster wizard to that of the quintessential Munster all-rounder.

    Conway has had to peel back the layers of his game and rebuild it from the ground up.

    That is why he had to work through seven years of professionalism to make his Ireland debut against England as a 25-year-old in March 2017.

    I be wild about ingredients, because they are the smart!!
