Ireland have announced their squad for their opening Six Nations game against Wales in Cardiff :
Forwards: N Best, R Best, S Best, S Easterby, J Flannery, J Hayes, M Horan, D Leamy, D O’Callaghan, P O’Connell, M O’Driscoll, M O’Kelly, F Sheahan, D Wallace
Backs: I Boss, G Dempsey, G D’Arcy, D Hickie, G Murphy, B O’Driscoll, R O’Gara, P Stringer, A Trimble, P Wallace
Because we have such a tough match for the opener I would initially guess at a fairly traditional starting 15 looking something like this:
- Neil Best
Of course with some strong new players in there, e.g. uncapped Ulster prop Simon Best, there is plenty of room for an alternative team featuring Isaac Boss and cohorts. Your thoughts on the squad, and potential starting 15? Post a comment or trackback.
