Brent Pope Discusses The Peter O’Mahony/Jamie Heaslip Conspiracy Theory

Was it planned all along?

When the news broke that Jamie Heaslip would be unable to take his place in the starting line-up to face England on Saturday, the Ireland camp told us that he rolled his ankle in the warm-up.

Immediately following the win, Joe Schmidt informed RTÉ that Heaslip had suffered a hamstring injury. This got a lot of people thinking.

Brent Pope was asked about the theory on Against The Head last night, and while he doesn’t think it’s something that was planned, or plotted- he does feel there perhaps could have been a case where Heaslip was actually injured earlier in the week, but the Irish camp decided to keep it quiet.
