Foley benefiting from competition
28 January 2005 15:58pm
Eddie O'Sullivan believes the competition within his Ireland squad has brought out the best in British and Irish Lions hopeful Anthony Foley.
And while O'Sullivan is quick to salute Foley's impressive development, he points out the 57-cap international must continue to look over his shoulder.
"Anthony Foley is an experienced player. He's worked very hard on his fitness and has always been a very good footballer," said the Ireland coach.
"His experience has grown so much that at the moment he's playing better than ever, but a lot of that is because he knows he has to.
"There are guys who are chomping at the bit to take his place and that's a reflection of the quality of the squad."
