    So he was tighthead in a dominant scrum, was one of the top tacklers in the team and yet you think he was beaten in the scrum and did nothing around the park....

    Most tackles outside the back row too.

    you mean like giving caps to Archer, McGrath, Henshaw, Kearney, Fitzpatrick and also giving Marshall, Jackson and Madigan game time...

    Ross, Darcy, BOD too old, too slow. A dominant tighthead and a pair of centres would give us an extra edge we could build off. We have the wings if he picks them for their flair rather than their error count

We don't need more depth or cover, we need to focus on the strength of the team we intend to take to the field.
    Agree 100% look after those with knocks POM, BOD etc but keep changes to the starting side to a minimum . There is scope to look at the bench and bring them on earlier but only when the match is won . We need a good points difference from this match . We have a great chance at winning a championship a big win over Italy would send the team to Paris in great spirits and with silverware in sight .

    Where do I get a copy of that then? Can I get a live reading from a Californian with a head mic while we all whoop and shout YEAH!! at all?

    I relaise this is mad, but I'd change the lot and go for a younger ball carrying fifteen:
    Kilcoyne Cronin Moore
    Henderson Ryan
    Ruddock Copeland TOD
    Marmion Jackson
    Luke Fitz Marshall Henshaw/ Cave McFadden
    Zebo.

    We need tries and lots of them, the above team is full of try scorers. Bring back the old men for the french game.
    Mad ted, completely mad. All of those guys could justifiably make a case to start with, perhaps the exception of Copeland who is still living off a couple of good HEC games, but to throw them all in together would be suicide.

    I would personally probably make 6/7 changes to the starting team infiltrating-McGrath, Moore, Ryan, Henderson, Jackson, Marshall and Zebo but can't realistically see more than 3-, Henderson to 6, Marshall to 12 and perhaps Gazebo into the back three.
