At least Addison won't get broke.

Well at least he selected the correct wingers and full back but no good if we can't get them ball.

Aki seems to be an untouchable. Hopefully he won't lose his head again and get sent off.

Don't see the value of Henshaw on the bench. He can only play in the centre. Surely Addison would be a better option.
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

Murray was never going to be dropped for this one.
Aki? I just don't get him at all.
There can be only one

Max Deegan is unlucky not to bench ahead of O'Mahony.

Just hear Farrell on the radio say Murray had trained really really well all week.

Is Doris good in the lineout, Herring could be put under a lot of pressure if he has only two options? Guess that might be why Toner is on the bench if things go pear shaped. Back row at least a bit of change, will be interesting to see if Stander can make a few more yards at 6. Yes I get it is frustrating not seeing Cooney starting, when he gets his chance he will need to take it. Agree on Aki, probably 3 or 4 centres in Ireland should be ahead of him. Hope Stockdale returns to a bit of form if he gets a chance, and that's big if! Biggest question is how are we going to play, will it be same old same old from the JS era, frig me I hope not!

Training well in week before match is clearly more important than 12 months of playing indifferently. Murray is still untouchable I suspect some will be annoyed if he still
Isn’t first choice for the next Lions tour as well...

Addison makes an ideal bench option given his ability to cover several positions well it doesn’t make any sense but to keep the numbers down..

Aki must have photos of someone simply don’t get him at this level..

Doris is an option for Herring,

He's won 16 for Leinster this season.

Stander 11.

POM 28.

Then he gets to start his recovery a week early. Win win. He was always going to get injured. Might as well be in training.

I would have Aki ahead of Henshaw but problem with Henshaw is that if he doesn’t start he’s not worth a bench option for me. Addison much more versatile for the 23 spot.

Murray - this is why once again I won’t give a feck about #FIRFU this season again. The explanation given is utter dung. Feel for Cooney - so let down after what he has done the last 2 seasons.

POM with his angry face and NFL shoulder pads on the bench is another kick in the nads for the young future options out there. What does he offer coming off the bench. Was a great, on the wane and way out so don’t let a servant as him spend a few seasons getting shiter and shiter on the big stage. Kiwis don’t do this. Once they see it happening they’re off and new blood in.

Rest of team looks good but disappointed nothing pushing the Loop for his spot but suppose as he’s been made captain he can’t exactly not get picked.
