    Wales will be champing at the bit to stick another 30+ point defeat on us- and I would hate to see that done to whatever morale we have left after England. So does joe STICK with the non-injured starters from last week, giving them a chance at redemption? Or TWIST , and make the three front row (inc Scannell, who can at least hit his jumpers regularly), one second row (Henderson for Ryan, I’d keep Kleyn), two back row ( beirne and Conan), half back (marmion and carty), midfield ( Farrell comes in, at 12), wing (earls) and FB that Saturday showed were needed. My guess is that Joe’s money is on STICK.

      Lads, we'll be grand. Joe's the best coach in the world. His attention to detail is meticulous, so much so, that every player knows their individual role inside out. Get them leader beans down ye ffs.

        He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

            Ireland are a busted flush, they've been done since winning the 6N at Twickenham. Wales by 20 points no matter who Joe picks, because if the first choice aren't good enough then the likes of Scannell and Farrell aren't either. No one in the reserves with any x-factor or world class ability.

            We'll be lucky to beat Scotland and Japan will be looking to show what they can do to a 'big' nation at home. What a pity.

                  Apparently both teams will be experimental. Makes some sense as it's the last match before the 31-man squad has to be announced.

                    Agree- wholeheartedly, but very reluctantly. I’d advocate Scannell, Conway and Farrell, not because I believe they are world class, or have X factor, but just because they can do their jobs competently. We have nobody who might make it into a top international side- with the possible exception of Ryan. Two-ish years ago, on form, we might have had half a dozen worthy of consideration: Healy, Furlong, Best, POM, CJ, Murray, Sexton. A shot off SA in the quarters is about as much as we can hope for. We seem to have learned very little since the last World Cup.

                      Very strong rumours that Sexton is a doubt to make the plane. Apparently the injury is more serious than is being let on

                        Unless Wales experiment with their backs in the scrum, and forward in their backline- it won’t make any difference.

                          Kilcoyne, Scannell, Furlong, Toner, Ryan, Beirne, Ruddock, Conan, Marmian, Carty, Stockdale, Henshaw, Farrell, Earls, Addison - McGrath, Cronin, Ryan, TOD, Murphy, Murray, Byrne, Ringrose would be the team I'd pick

                            A fair team based on form to date, or game time for guys who haven’t played yet

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

                              Gatty will send out a duff team to paper over the cracks by letting us win. Then he'll clean up on that bag he slapped on us with the biscuit and cookie for not getting out of the group.
