    Reasonable possibility (hopefully) that Ireland and U20s both playing SA on Saturday afternoon.

      And a reasonable proposition is that we'll emerge victorious on both fronts.
      Stand-out day approaching in CJ's career.

        He actually had the stand out day last week to be fair... getting redcarded on his return to his homeland will take some beating.

          Lads its fine, Fergus will be flown out. With that in mind I propose a backline of,

          Murray, PJ, Fergus, Fergus, Fergus, Fergus and Payne. Fergus to take the kicks...

            That's all the confidence I need. First ever SH series win in the bag

              Much as I like Payne at FB, with Henshaw out and McCloskey at home (ffs) our best centre pairing may be Marshall 12, Payne 13 with TOH at 15.

              Up front I wonder is it time to rest Henderson? Dillane at lock with Stander at 6 would freshen things up and add two serious carriers to the side. The Ulsterman makes a great impact sub. Ruddock did enough to retain the 7 shirt I reckon. Had a very solid game.

              Front row I'd start McGrath, Best and probably Ross, holding Furlong back for impact. Think I'd put Cronin on the bench. He's not the best thrower but he's a real impact player, unlike Strauss. I worry about Killer's scrummaging. Who else have we as a sub LH?
              Bealham. He can play both sides of the scrum and I'd have him on the bench ahead of Killer. In any case, McGrath has an immense engine on him and can go close to 80 mins if needed (if he can avoid injury). He is one of the very few (maybe the only) world class players on the Ireland team. Can't think of a better all-round LH prop in any country at the moment. He is the unsung hero of this tour.

                Murray is as good as any scrum half on the planet.

                  I don't think McGrath qualifies as unsung. Most people are well aware of his quality.
                  My computer thinks I'm gay
                  What's the difference anyway
                  When all the people do all day

                      At his best he's better than Smuth.
                      Conor has the calm assassin about him. I reckon the young Saffer Faffy will be as good as Aaron once he gains some experience outside of the space invading game down south.

                        None of them offer anything like CM's defensive abilities.

                            Nyakane is out for Boks with an ankle injury so another prop will be drafted in

                            Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                              That's a shame, he's not much of a player. How he wasn't penalised in that last scrum of the second test is still beyond me.

                                Happy to hear that tbh, Ireland's scrumaging has been excellent on this tour and you can clearly see that t totally derails the saffers when their scrum is beaten, they don't know how to play behind a retreating pack.

                                If Ireland can keep their focus, play to their considerable strengths, and play out to the finish I see no reason why we can't win this series, despite what the bookies are saying.
