Ireland scrum-half Luke McGrath has received a bit of stick following his call-up for the Rugby World Cup – and now somebody has edited his Wikipedia page.
Kieron Marmion had been a regular presence in Joe Schmidt’s group in recent years but it now looks as though McGrath’s excellent performances in pre-season training, as well as his form for Leinster last season, have won him the chance to back-up Conor Murray.
It now reads: “Luke is currently under investigation for robbery, after taking the place of Kieran Marmion in the Ireland RWC 2019 squad. “
