We are over represented. They are doing their heads in on Munster fans forum. Someone the other day had 16 Munster players in the squad
Zebo not making it is no surprise. The last time Zebo and Murray were in a squad there was more action off the field than on it

They can cry all they want. The 6N is Andy Farrell's playground. Luckily there are no semi finals anyway.

So 6 x Ulster; 7 x Munster; 2 x Connacht; 19 x Leinster (or thereabouts)

Has Ireland ever fielded an all-Leinster team, either at the start or later in the match? Not out of the question with this squad.

Forgive my ignorance. What's a 'training panellist'?
A tackle bag holder? Someone to step in if one of the squad gets injured? ...?

I think it is someone who is on the radar to be capped down the line and they want to bring them into camp to experience it etc.

Human tackle bags, I'd say.

Jelonch has done his other knee which is a massive blow for France.

He’d certainly been on the weights when he was injured last season as his shoulders looked pretty big from my vantage point on the East Terrace against Toulouse.

Rumours of no ulster players featuring in the ireland 23 for the game against France. No real surprise but a damning indictment of our positon and fall from grace this season. Anyone know when this last occurred?

On the one hand I feel like it's no more than we deserve. On the other, I wonder do other provinces get punished so quickly for poor performances like Ulster does when it comes to Ireland representation?

We're also above Connacht and Munster in the URC table...

So no Ulster players. Only Hendy was even a contender. Mc Carthys form has been rewarded.

The only ulster player I'd say has been really hard done by was John Cooney a few years ago.

Can't judge URC yet due to uneven spread of games.

Hendie is unlucky given his form in the RWC

Going for a 6/2 split to counter French power but leaving hendo out of the 23 is a strange one. Doris and Vdf are 80 minute men so having baird and conan on the bench is a bit weird. Replacing both 2nd rows at the 60 min mark should have been an option IMO.

It'll take some spinning to blame Ulster players if Ireland lose.

Not impossible though.
