    XXIII to beat New Zealand

    Zebo
    Bowe
    O'Driscoll
    Marshall
    Earls
    Sexton
    Murray
    Healy
    Best
    Ross
    Ryan
    O'Connell
    O'Mahony
    Heaslip
    O'Brien

    Kilcoyne
    Strauss
    Andress
    McCarthy
    Ferris
    Reddan
    Madigan
    Kearney

    14 or 15 of 23 still standing with Kilcoyne and Andress out of the loop.

    We need to look at developing the fifth province, the Black Pig's Dyke.
    We're a rising force, Stephen Moore said so. The times they are a changing.
    Holy Joe is the man, RWC 2015, Bring it on. Fire in the bellies. Its gonna be some ride.
    Hendo, Giller, Henshaw, Killer, Marshall, JJ, Tommy, Payne. The new green wave. We've been laid low with injuries. **** happens. We were in the mix having started out like a bag of nervous s**t. At 39 mins imho the wheels fell off. Give Joe his green m and m's and he'll be Smokin' Joe Schmidt in next to no time.
    Go Joe!

        Shouldn't it be 23 plus a very poor cook?

          On the basis that you're only as good as your last game, not sure Best would be in my starting team. Might even be under pressure from Sherry at this point. Also, Henderson for Ferris, who won't be back yet (if ever).

          Earls v R Kearney v Gilroy v McFadden v D Kearney v Jones v Henshaw for a back three slot alongside Zebo and Bowe will be interesting next season. Serious depth there.

          Wonder will we see Marshall or Marmion nick Reddan's shirt.

            not sure about this year but the idea of our backline in a couple of years gives me the heebyjeebies:

            marmion, hanrahan, zebo, madigan, olding, earls, henshaw.

            hanrahan and madigan very interchangeable. the likes of murray, mcgrath, gilroy, conway, marshall and bowe knocking about as well. terrifying stuff!

              Unless Kearney has a big resurgence i think Zebo at fullback would be interesting! Bowe on one wing and Earls/Gilroy on the other wing depending on form would be what id like to see.

              Strauss/Sherry/Best will be interesting battle too! Getting a good working backrow is the key though to our success... picking a good balance between SOB/TOD/POM/Heaslip especially hard and hopefully if we can keep our core players Healy/POC/Ferris/Sexton/Murray/BOD fit for a six nations run we might have a sniff.

              Wales to have a Lions hangover

              In Joe we trust...

                We currently haven't got a 23 capable of beating the All Blacks I reckon.

                We should have beaten them in the last couple of years ago, but failed.

                  we should have beaten them last year. 1 dodgy penalty from Nige, & then Dan "Puppy Kicker" Carter scores a DG & the AB's win. the following week we get mangled 60-0 by the AB's, but we should have beaten them the previous week.

                      Is Marshall OK after his head injuries?

                        If that team can beat NZ then ustix's team should be able to in a one off game right at the end of NZ's season. I think history will be made on the 24th November. Ireland by 7. Followed by the GS, Munster winning the HEC and pro 12, Ulster the Amlin and Leinster back to back British and Irish cups.

                            That team only managed to beat the Awl Blix on a wave of diarrhea and vomit.

                            I think a side of;

                            15. Kearney
                            14. Bowe
                            13. Payne (he's eligible now, right? If not, BOD.)
                            12. Marshall
                            11. Zebo

                            10. Sexton
                            9. Murray

                            8. Heaslip
                            7. O'Brien
                            6. POM
                            5. POC
                            4. Ryan
                            3. Ross
                            2. Sherry
                            1. Healy

                            Bench of: Kilcoyne, Best, Fitz/Archer, McCarthy, Henderson, Marmion, Madigan, O'Driscoll/Earls

                            Would have a shot against the Darkness.

                              1-15: Healy, Strauss, Ross, PO'C, Tuohy, PO'M, SO'B, Heaslip, Murray, Sexton, Bowe, Marshall, BO'D, McFadden, Zebo
                              16-23: Sherry, Kilcoyne, Fitzpatrick, Ryan, McLaughlin, Reddan, Madigan, Earls

                              Huge number of players could force a rethink on some of those selections if they play well in Sept/Oct e.g. Henderson, TO'D, Marmion, Henshaw, Jack and Luke Mcgrath, Keatley, Jackson, Gilroy not to mention the likes of Best and Rob K coming back into the fold.
