Farrell ahead of Addison. What a joke after Farrells pathetic performance on Saturday. Ulstermen dropped all round so who can now claim that there is no anti-Ulster bias.
Ireland in for a hammering on Saturday I hope.

Kleyn is very lucky to get in that squad. I haven't seen anything from him to suggest he should be playing international rugby.

The only big question really is if there are enough Kearneys in that squad.

I think Farrell is from Ulster while Addison is not.

Besides which I don't think the selection was between them. If Addison got in it would be as a full back. So really it is probably Larmour's ability to play on the wing which has kept Addison out of the squad.

That being said I would have selected Addison.

Kleyn selected because he's a specialist tigjthead lock apparently.

The comparisons with Jared appear to be justified.
