    XV not starting against Italy

    Some serious depth in Irish Rugby at the minute:

    1. McGrath
    2. Strauss
    3. Moore
    4. Ryan
    5. Touhy
    6. Ferris
    7. O'Brien
    8. O'Mahony
    9. Reddan
    10. Jackson
    11. Gilroy
    12. Marshall
    13. Earls
    14. Bowe
    15. Zebo

    Would have no fear about any of those XV starting an international test match. And in many positions, the players would be stars in many international teams.

    All this while fielding a side against Italy today (and the other matches so far that is close to the best in the competition.

    Just off the phone with Joe. He wants Felix to not start against Italy. Zebo hasn't not done enough to not start against Italy.

        If everyone was fit and available I do think we would see a slightly different line up to the XV we will see today, so not sure of the merits in putting in a bunch of people who are injured. The controversial selection choices are at; 3,4,11,12,13 & 14. With the exception of 13 where there is not a stand out replacement and 3 & 12 where potential replacements are largely unproven at this level, the other positions are straight choices and Joe is nailing his blue colours firmly to the mast at this stage.

                  It's not the same without a mad-musher.

                    An entirely justifiable response. I'd have banned you, not just from the forum but from appearing in public too.

                    My changes to the not-starting 15 - would have no difficulty seeing this team in the autumn ...

                          I'd prefer see Henshaw at 13, Marmion at 9, Earls to the wing and Touhy or even Foley in at lock.

                            Damn my befuddled brain, I actually forgot about Marmion! Would definitely have had him ahead of Reddan. Think DOC has been outperforming Tuohy this season overall, but as for Foley I'd like to see more of him at HEC level before advocating him as a test starter - overall Ireland has pretty decent depth at lock.

                              We have very average locks, POC on his lap of honour and some tall dude. Launchbury, Lawes and Parling - now thats a selection headache
