    But Brian O'Driscoll has recovered from the hamstring injury which kept him out of the defeat by France and will lead the Irish in Saturday's showdown.

    Stringer fractured a finger during Ireland's opening match against France.

    O'Driscoll's return means Shane Horgan moves out to the right wing while Leicester's Geordan Murphy has been left out of the match 22.

    If Stringer does not make it, Isaac Boss of Ulster will retain the number nine shirt.

    Ireland: Dempsey; Horgan, D'Arcy, O'Driscoll, Hickie; O'Gara, Stringer or Boss; Horan, R Best, Hayes, O'Callaghan, O'Connell, S Easterby, D Wallace, Leamy.
    Replacements: Flannery, S Best, N Best, M O'Driscoll, A N Other, P Wallace, Trimble. </TD></TR></T></T></TABLE>



      Sigh. He really needs to start Flannery.

                  Easterby better perform a lot better this week. Want to see Best and Fla on by 60 at the latest.

                    When is he going to start best?????[img]smileys/mad.gif[/img]


                      What the hell are Best and Easterby doing on that team

                      Esp Easterby ..he was shocking aginst France..he was awful and he keeps his place..shocking ..seriously how bad must he play to get dropped

                      Good to see G Murphy dropped mind..we dont need ANOTHER missed tackle from him

                      To not give it everything, is to sacrifice the gift.


                        Murphy not even in the squad

                            Biggest surprise for me is that Murphy is out of the 22.Who covers 15? Hickie?/


                              Good old steady Eddie.

                              His innate conservatism will be the loosing of this match I fear.
