        Jesus, you'd be forgiven for thinking that's a first choice side.

                No, that's the senior team.

                  With the senior team. Realistically, none of these players will be involved for Italy except for O'Brien and McGrath (both need games) and Madigan (hasn't played much at 10).

                      That is a very strong side. Delighted for Felix, and great to see Earls at this level again. Keatley must be starting at 10 next week, with Madigan providing cover for 12, 10?

                        i'll be shocked if Madigan doesn't start at 10 next week.

                          Surely either Earls or Fitzgerald will be at least on the bench against Italy if not starting at 13?

                          Do you reckon "Slammin" Sam Burgess being picked at 12 for the Saxons has anything to do with Reid not being given a start? D'arcy will know how to handle him.

                            It's supposed to be a development selection like england have picked

                            Makes a mockery of it in my view .
                            I always knew Madigan was a closet Scrum Half. Ignore All things that suggest Continuity.

                              Not sure, big games from Henderson (he could start against Italy), Luke Fitz (could also start), Earls, Marmion and even Felix (Joe loves him) and they have shot at 23.

                              Irish squad depth has never been better.
