    No Sexton, no Henshaw, no Lowe and no Kearney. Hope they greased the wheels on the conveyor belt!

    Back three of Larmour, Daly and Byrne against Toulouse will have a few bloos supporters feeling nervous. Ross Byrne and ROL are good players but not hugely experienced either. Ringrose is their only back who wouldn’t be having sleepless nights ahead of this game.

    Massive challenge for them. Their pack, which is pretty much full strength, will have to own the ball all day.

      Add in Tomane, D Kearney, McFadden also missing really and it really stretches the depth chart....hopefully Toner/Leavy are fit and able to play.

            That team should still win at home. Weak wings defensively. Kolbe could cut either open.

              The pack looks close to a full strength selection, they should certainly be capable of a home win. Not up to speed with their group, are bonus points a consideration?

                The problem is not the starting team, it's what is on the bench. That's were you miss the injured players

                Comment


                  McGrath, Toner, Leavy, SOB, Sexton, Henshaw, Lowe, Kearney, McFadden, Tomane, all missing. Unfortunate for probably the biggest game of the season so far. Keeping it tight looks to be the order of the day and hoping for a 1 point win.

                      Is Leavy going to be back for the England game?

                        It is basically a group decider. Toulouse on 17, Leinster on 15. The group winner might get no 2 seed if Racing or Saracens slip up.

                          Think both Leavy & Toner would be starters, that said, Fardy isn't a step down

                            That’s probably 7 lads missing from the first 23. Big ask for the Leinster back line to manage Toulouse.
                            Going to be an interesting game .
                            Big leadership needed from Ringrose
                            When their numbers dwindled from 50 to 8, the other dwarves began to suspect Hungry

                              McGrath seems to have been dropped, not injured.

                              Only two overseas in the squad. If they win this one, it will be a great result for Irish rugby.

                                McGrath has been out injured and hasn’t got back to game fitness yet .
