    Even 2/3 wildcards could be the catalyst to remind the settled that ALL jerseys are up for grabs

    The injury list makes it easier to overlook wild cards though I fear
    I am the million man.

            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.
            What compelling reason has he to pick Zebo though? Rob may offer nothing at 15 but Zebo doesn't either. It's a goose step and contact please from both of them. If Joe was being brave he'd put Henshaw at 15 with Mc Closkey and Ringrose in the centres

              Zebo is for my money a better kicker.....but the difference is not such as I would make a fuss about it. You could argue the merits of one as a better tackler over the other.

                Ringrose?

                      Played in our largest win in Thomond Park* setting up a beeeeeeeautiful try for Isa, turned the poor defence inside out, and was placed under no pressure by the Munster attack.

                      I think that the term is rotation.

                      * 17 points winning margin in Thomond Park is, I believe, our largest win down there in the professional era, as always open to correction

                        Would the current Munster team be similar to 6N standard.

                        He may be 'that' good, let's see him dominate a few games 1st.

                          Different argument Bazzy, just knocking aside the ridiculous notion that he doesn't get his game for Leinster, I think I'd actually agree with you, I'd rather he not be thrown in deep end yet tbh.

                          there are reasons that Joe should think long and hard before putting him in, but not that nonsense spouted about not getting his game with Leinster

                            Sure lets go with Denis Hurley or Payne instead . That should improve matters

                              McGrath, Best, Moore
                              Toner, McCarthy/Ryan
                              SOB, TOD, Heaslip
                              Murray, Sexton
                              Earls, McCloskey, Henshaw, Trimble
                              Kearney

                              Buckley/Cronin, Cronin, Furlong, Ruddock, Stander, Marmian, Jackson, Luke

                              Ryan a better player than McCarthy but McCarthy is in better form - performance over next 4 weeks could decide.
                              Ruddock on bench to cover 2nd row to give more mobile option
                              Luke on bench as most versatile back we have and want to see how Ireland do with a far bigger set of backs

                                Should win the home games (Wales, Scotland, Italy).
                                I'd expect us to beat France away.

                                Bascially all comes down to how we go at Twickenham.

                                Anything less than four wins would be disappointing.

                                As Sewa and many others point out, apparently this is a jokeshop of a hemisphere, so anything less than comfortably winning a Grand Slam would be terrible. Apparently Argentina and South Africa would walk the Six Nations
