    Some serious back 3 options available for them aswell. It'll be interesting to see who gets Pro14/Premiership game time across the nations and who's rested up.

            its ironic that when I started the watching rugby in the eighties ,3 of the 4 5 nations matches were horror shows but the one match that excited me was Wales because we always had a chance and always won in Cardiff . They have been our Achilles heel the last four years

                Would be far more worried by the Scarlets guys like Shingler and Steff Evans than some of the old has beens like North and Faletau returning. Fingers crossed they all walk right back in to take the place of form players as is the way with Gatland, maybe we'll get double lucky and he'll stick Anscombe at 10 as well.

                    But nothing ruins a six nations more than losing to Scotland.
                    Beating them every year should be axiomatic.

                      I agree with the majority, should be Bundee Aki and Tom Farrell in the centre for this one.

                        A real shame about Henshaw. I was hoping for a miracle. I have always rated Chris Farrell very highly so am not to concerned about his ability to step up to the next level.

                        Furlong is, fingers crossed, positive news.

                        Could Schmidt change it up with A back row of 6 CJ, 7 POM, 8 Conan?

                          I saw it on the 42 article that they expect Furlong to be fine for the Wales game.

                          what are the odds on Ringrose being the one to replace Henshaw rather than Farrell?

                            Beating England in 94 in Twickers and then drawing to Scotland back in Dublin is a particularly demoralising memory.

                              I can’t envisage Ringrose coming straight back into the Irish camp after not playing for Leinster. There was a b’lls up made of his injury last season and I cannot see him being rushed. Not sure he should be rushed either.
