    Emerging Ireland - IRB Nations Cup

    Any idea when this squad will be announced?

    Following on from the senior announcement I'll hazard a guess at a potential squad.......

    Props: Lutton, Ryan, Ah You, Bent, Furlong (presume Archer/DFitz injured. I think I have too many THs but can't think of any other LHs off the top of my head. I know I'm forgetting someone)
    Hookers: Cronin, Casey
    Locks: Foley, Tuohy, Kearney
    Back Row: DomRyan, McKeon, Copeland, Dougall, Butler, O'Donnell
    Scrum Halves: McGrath, Heaney
    Out Halves: Madigan, Keatley
    Centres: Reid, McSharry, Macken (presume Olding injured)
    Back 3: Gilroy, Conway, Leader, Morris (presume LFitz injured and Bowe rested)

    Props: Buckley, Black, Lutton, Furlong, Ah You.
    Hooker: Heffernan, McGuigan.
    Lock: Foley, Kearney, Stevenson.
    Backrow: Ryan, McKeon, Copeland, Dougal, O'Donnell.
    SH: Hart, McGrath.
    OH: Madigan, Keatley.
    Centre: Reid, Macken, McCloskey, Sheridan.
    Back 3: Gilroy, Conway, Leader, Healy, Morris.

    Cronin/Casey are out with injury.

      Cronin is getting the summer off and Casey is injured, no? So I'm guessing you'll see Jason Harris-Wright, Aaron Dunden, and maybe Dave Heffernan or Niall Scannell?

        I forgot about the hookers apologies. I'll replace them with Harris-Wright and maybe Henry/Scannell if they're fit. I don't see the point of bringing Dundon at his age.

        Bayern - Can I ask why you selected Stevenson ahead of Tuohy? Would you rate him higher?

        Based on the numbers brought to Georgia last year I'd be surprised to see 4 centers and 5 back 3.

            Would be a great shame if JJ isn't included, if this tour isn't an opportunity for young promising players to be eased into the setup then what is. What is to be gained by bringing a 27 year old 4th choice?

              You are endlessly tedious.

                Pretty sure Harris-Wright is injured. Think Tuohy is being rested this Summer.

                      I can't see too many of these fellas successfully defending the RWC in 2019.

                        Its a good platform and beats holding tackle pads.

                        Jun 2013, Jack McGrath was playing in IRB Nations Cup. 6 months later he got man of the match in a senior Irish international against Samoa. 6 months after that he was named Leinsters player of the year for 2013/2014.

                        Dave Kearney and Marty Moore are two others who had great seasons on the back of an Emerging Ireland tour.

                              Some amount of hookers injured or rested!

                              Sherry, Casey, Cronin, Strauss, Harris-Wright, Henry!

                              Are Bowe/Tuohy rested so they recover fully from numerous injuries do people know?

                              Fine line between needing recovery time and needing game time!
