    What do we need to do over the next 10 months to win the RWC

    After winning a GS, a series in Aus and beating NZ for the 2nd time in two years surely we can think about winning the RWC with realistic thoughts.

    In order to do so what do people think we need to do to give us the best chance possible?

    My thoughts are as follows:

    Kilcoyne, Scannell, Porter, Bealham, Beirne, VDF, SOB, Leavy, Conan, Marmion, Conney, McGrath, Carberry, Byrne, Farrell, Larmour, Conway need to get as much gametime as possible in the 6Nations.
    Players like Healy, Best, Furlong, Ryan, Toner, POM, CJ, Murray, Sexton, Kearney should ideally miss at least two 6 Nations games each.

    If we can get our players from 23-35 improving that will I believe determine how far we can go.

    Beirne should get gametime at 6 and 8 with Henshaw/Larmour getting gametime at 15 specifically

    And Joey C most importantly of all

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

      Win in all the group games, then come out on top in the QF, a win in the semi final and then score more points than the other team in the final. That should do the trick.

        Best thing all of us can do is ignore Ewan McKenna

        Just listened to the off the ball podcast where they had him on

        His perspective is fair jealous and bitter

          You’re doing something right when someone is that bitter and jealous of you

            Avoid too many injuries. At full strength, or close to it, we can win it.

              Enjoy the present. We have peaked this year - we will exit in the quarter final again. Pity but the draw is too tough...
