    The captain needs to be sure of his place in the side so the only realistic options when POC heads off on his sun blocked sojourn on the Cote will be POM and Murray.

        I will refer you to this..
        http://www.munsterfans.com/poll.php?...do=showresults

        The poll result is heavily skewed with Munsterfan bias, but I reckon it will be Rory Best or Seanie...
        He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

          In the two games that Heaslip has captained, Rory Best has also started.

          Front row are usually subbed, so I'd say that would go against him. POC always plays the 80 with Schmidt.

            Sexton picks himself. He has no rival for his jersey.
            I always knew Madigan was a closet Scrum Half. Ignore All things that suggest Continuity.

              Right now, POM is not assured of his place

                I agree with you on that and the last bit I added. There are a few bolters from the Leinster schools who could well make it.

                  Having just signed a 3 year IRFU central contract suggests otherwise (and also starting every game he has been fit under Schmidt).

                    His injury record isn't great though.

                      I think he probably will start but he's not "assured" of his place, Hendo could conceivably take it from him. Nobody will take the place of POC, Sexton or CM. POM not (yet?) in that bracket

                        I have no idea to what level you're taking the p*** but, of course, he's assured of a place in the squad. He's not assured of a place in the starting team, imo

                          I think Henderson is earmarked as a 2nd row for Ireland (or so everyone seems to think). While he is young yet, POM was a regular starter for Ireland at his age where as Hendo has got as much bench warming as Paddy Wallace.

                            His pressure kicking record isn't great either.

                              Henderson is a world class player who has a wrecking power ball level only previously seen in Ferris and Wallace. POM's talents are obvious but it's getting harder to leave Henderson out. After the WC he'll be in somewhere. Could well be a case of POM moving to 7 and O Brien to 8

                                Perhaps that should be the option at the WC.
