    Camp Joe on the moment, Sweets, John Ryan, Murray and Joey there among others, yet seems POM and KEarls allowed time off.

      Earls has 27 tries in 72 Ireland appearances (64 starts) which I would have thought is not too shabby. Stockdale is a phenomenon re try scoring it must be said so anybody else will pale in comparison. And Earls is playing as well as he ever has. Conway is playing superbly but cant displace him. Not saying nothin about Rob. Larmour has loads of potential but unproven. Addison looks really, really promising. Thats six. After that there is a drop off

        Knowing Franno he'd still have Macken in the first XV but Conway, in taking the step down to Munster, showed he doesn't have the ambition or talent to play for Ireland.

          Surprised that anyone wouldnt have Leavy in the Irish team now after last season. He was phenomenal and key to club and country's success. SOB is gone IMO, class player but a guy who plays like he does always was at risk of a short shelf life, I think hes crocked. Leavy edges VDF but both are excellent 7s.

            Many had Mr Healy written off for finished 2 years back. I reckon Seanie will dominate RWC 2019.

              Jack McGrath and Rob Kearney, both wondering if they need to contact VirginMedia to get a ticket to Japan this autumn

                Irrespective of Henshaws performance this weekend, I don't doubt Kearney will be starting FB for Ireland come World Cup time. Will Conway, Addison or Larmour even make it to Japan?

                  31 man squad. I think at the most only one of those will be dropped.

                    Meant to say 'and' not 'or'. if there's no injuries prior to WC, one of those 3 will miss out. Meanwhile, Kearney, who only covers one position, will be there.

                      If Robbie goes well this weekend he could end up playing there throughout the 6Ns. That would change the picture considerably. Unlikely Rob won’t travel but not inconceivable given his lack of versatility.

                      However, I think Conway is least likely to travel. He’s an excellent player and deserves the spot more than Larmour or Addison (based on form/accomplishments rather than potential) but he hasn’t really been that involved and Joe seems to favour the other two (plus Rob).

                        Whatever happens, I'm glad Joe is giving someone other than Rob a chance to show what they can offer.

                          I backed Joe to know what he was doing, if he was comfortable putting Henshaw in for that game I thought that was good enough for me. It was the wrong call. He spent so much time chasing bobbling ball.

                              So where does Quinn Roux go?

                              Peter O’Mahony

                              Jordi Murphy/JvDF/Roux?

                              Scrum-halves:
                              Conor Murray
                              Luke McGrath/Marmion

                              Chris Farrell definitely a Joe favorite

                              Back three:
                              Rob Kearney, back in favour
                              Jacob Stockdale
                              Keith Earls
                              Jordan Larmour
                              Will Addison, injury not helping his cause.

                                Chris Farrell will surely make it very impressive every time he plays. Would imagine Joe will only bring 5 half-backs, possibly bringing Cooney to play 10 and only Sexton and Carbery as out and out 10s?
