    Who are we playing? And when? Is it on TV or in Fitzgerald Stadium?

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

                It looks as if Joe's main plan is intact. We were in bits at this point in the last worrild cup, with POC having to play 3 positions and Sexpot handicapped with the wheels of his wheelchair getting bogged down in the turf. The squad is in good fettle going into the real matches. 8 teams in a short KO tournament - 3 games max. Anybody who thinks Ireland have lost something will get a surprise. These are up with the biggest games any of these players played, it will be 1000 miles an hour stuff like a cup final and class will out. The Kiwis can choke.

                  Funny you should say that. Sexton used to do a lot of tap dancing in his early days. He had to give it up though.
                  He kept falling in the sink.

                    Yeah, the neighbours used to call him Fred as a kid. The tap dancing was a big deal in Listowel back in the day.

                      Idi Ow Salivan has Peter under pressure to start from Tadhg Beirne. Himself and Jackman both called for Kearney to start ahead of Lamour.
                      I'd be going with Beirne and Ruddock on the bench and starting Henshaw inside Ringrose.
                      Andy won't make the 23 unless Rob Kearney is 'carrying a niggle'.

                      We can beat this lot if we put them under pressure. Read in particular. I think he's flappable.

                        Larmer should start at 15 I think. He will beat defenders more than Bobert, he's more of a playmaker.

                        Ireland going out to beat NZ without scoring tries and mostly relying on the defence is not good enough to even compete IMO

                          Larmour should absolutely start. But will not unless there is an injury.

                            And in the biggest call of all, who'll be whistle-blowing on Saturday morning at 11.15am?

                              We need to attack them, and for me, I'd start Conway ahead of Larmour.
