    So you wouldnt have 3 of the 4 scrum halfs ? Come on Stringer wasnt playing well enough and who else is there.

    Bent, Its his ability to play both sides that has him in the squad. Even training and in the build up games this will be of use to Joe.
    Furlong, His got great potential without having enough gametime in my opinion but Archer can be the only one who should have got a shot. Is Furlong a better scrummager?
    Tuohy, Ive no issue here as Dave Foley was the only other real hope and his not fit yet. Hopefully he can get himself sorted. That leaves McCarthy Doc and a few Connacht lads who werent good enough.

    Trimble, Showed great improvement under Joe and got Irish player of the year the year before last. His a solid player and Joe is giving him a chance and rightly so.
    McFadden, Solid squad player and he can cover a number of positions.
    Fitz, Well that all depends on if he can stay fit. When his fit and in form I'd have him in the squad.
    Conan, A bit disappointed that he didnt continue his good form from earlier in the year for the season but you will get that with young players. Massive step up and a choice for the future more that 2015. Wont make the plane
    Jordi, His had a great season and also played well with Ireland, Who would you have instead of him.

    Herring, Not many options when you take away the foreigners and those injured.
    Jordi Murphy has more than proved himself at this stage. Mc Fadden offers goalkicking as well.
    I always knew Madigan was a closet Scrum Half. Ignore All things that suggest Continuity.

      Ya, His probably ahead of Tod and if fit his probably going to make the plane. Covers more positions also.
      When their numbers dwindled from 50 to 8, the other dwarves began to suspect Hungry

        Yes on the second part of your statement. TOD played as good if not better than him in the 6N but it's hard to compare given their limited game time. I think TOD had an excellent second half of the season for Munster and would shade him over JM for that. I would still take TOD as he offers something different.
        He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

          23 Leinster players when the squad have been ****e this season. Form shmorm.
          While strings might not be the long term answer his form over the last three months has been very good and he should have been called up to at least have a reliable experienced head in case anything happens to Murray.

          As bad as it must be for the likes of Archer, imagine being a leinster player and not making the squad, you would be gutted. Isa must be crap.

                Its Henry or TOD with Murphy being in the 23 backup. Henderson covers POM, TOD/Henry covers SOB, Jordi Murphy covers Heaslip and general cover.

                    Which Leinster players have you an objection to and which alternatives would you select

                      I can see why Yordy is selected to be honest. All he does is tackle, that's his prime strength and we are set up not to lose rather than run the ball to win.

                            In fairness to McFadden he's played quite well for Ireland on the wing in the past too

                              Bent - Cronin, Buckley
                              Reid, D'arcy - Marshall, McCloskey
                              Strauss - Casey
                              Conan - Wilson, Diack
                              Boss - no one, why have 4 scrum halves?

                                It's going to send this place into raptures but I'm fairly sure Boss will make the WC squad. Murray and Reddan are 1 & 2.

                                Marmion is a very similar player to Reddan and hasn't been in the form he was at the start of the season.

                                Wouldn't even be that surprised if he started Boss (depending on the team) if Murray got injured. Joe was always very horses for courses with Reddan and Boss, and usually favoured Boss in away games.

                                Conan/Wilson/Diack and Reid/McCloskey are fairly inconsequential as none of them will make the WC squad anyway
