  1. Wowser. This really is an incredible side. The more I look at it, the more excited I am by the game in prospect at 3pm on Sunday. Riddled with Lions and exuding world class. I dont think the Aussies stand a chance!

  2. I agree Nick, great team. Wish I hadn’t already made my SportGuru prediction now – looks like it should be a comfortable Irish win.
