    I'd like to see

    McGrath Best Moore
    Toner Ally Muldowney
    No8 Stander
    7 Sob
    6 Ruddock

    9 Marmion
    Sexton

    11 Earls
    12 McCloskey
    13 Henshaw
    14 Luke Fitzgerald
    15 Jared Payne

    Buckley
    Cronin
    Furlong
    D Ryan
    Tod
    Murray
    Jackson
    Healy

    Ally Muldowney is playing great rugby at the moment. His probably too old to get the recognition.
    Best Captain but Ive a feeling it will be Heaslip

      Ally Muldowney is not sufficiently assimilated into the system to be considered.

      You know that.

            My stab at what will start against Wales:

            McGrath Rory Moore
            Toner Ryan
            Ruddock Seanie Heaslip(C)

            Murr Sexton

            Dave Henshaw Payne Fitz
            Roborto

            Killer Cronin White MicMac Henry Reddan Madigan Earls


            It'll be a throwup for 3, 5, 6 and 11 jerseys. When in doubt give blue a shout.
            I am the million man.

                  I'd be surprised if Jones has long enough to influence the England set up too much in year 1. They're a good side whose coach bottled it at the World Cup and threw away the expansive rugby they'd been playing very convincingly. They're lacking in the pack for me, though, especially in terms of ball carriers. All their danger is really in the backs.

                  Big question for me is whether this is the year that it finally clicks for Scotland. They've been progressing steadily. If they get their act together, it will make for a very tight tournament. They have England at Murrayfield on the first weekend - they must be bulling for that.
                  "We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven into an age of unreason if we dig deep into our history and remember we are not descended from fearful men" Edward R Murrow

                  "Little by little, we have been brought into the present condition in which we are able neither to tolerate the evils from which we suffer, nor the remedies we need to cure them." - Livy


                  "I think that progress has been made by two flames that have always been burning in the human heart. The flame of anger against injustice and the flame of hope that you can build a better world" - Tony Benn

                      My Team 1st up and I'm struggling for a suitable lock on the bench.

                      McGrath, Best(c), Moore
                      Toner, Ryan
                      SOB, CJ, TOD
                      Murray, Jackson
                      Earls, McCloskey, Henshaw, Trimble
                      Payne

                      Cronin, Kilcoyne, Furlong, Break Glass, Ruddock/Henry, Reddan, Sexton, Fitzgerald

                        I'd put money on Cowboy's predicted team being correct! :_raincloud__rvmp_by

                        I'd go for

                        McGrath, Best, Furlong
                        Toner, Ryan
                        Ruddock, SOB, CJ
                        Murray, Sexton
                        Fitz, McCloskey, Henshaw, Earls,
                        Payne

                        Cronin, Cronin, Moore, Dillane, TOD, Marmion, Jackson, Zebo.

                        Close calls between TOD / Henry, Heaslip / CJ, Zebo / Payne but that's who I'd go for. Definitely love to see Dillane involved, how you'd think of wheeling out Mick Mac again when you have a young lad like that available is beyond me.

                        In fact if any of Reddan, Boss, Mick Mac, Bent or Ross (unless there's an injury, he'd be 3rd choice for me atm) are involved then it's incredibly negative thinking IMO.

                          Please do correct me if I am wrong here, I thought that Ryan was a left sided second row? I know Toner has packed down on both sides, but he does perform noticeably poorer the scrum on the Right Hand side, it's the principal reason Leinster have kept Tom Denton on for so long - poor as he is in the loose, his tight game is actually pretty solid.

                          Can't say I'd be too disappointed if that were the team to line out V Wales though provided the Second row is balanced.

                              I agree fully with their point about Earls as a finisher - but I'm not so sure he would be picked by Joe ahead of others.

                                I'm extremely disappointed with Joe's selections so far.
