  1. dk must have a very boring sex life as he seems unable to try anything different.
    I hope im wrong but i think its going to be a very long 80 mins, darcy isnt up to it anymore and the french are going to do what wales done run straight, hard and through him

  2. Murray is probarly the worse nr 9 in Ireland at the moment and still get picked above Reddan. How many chances is Murray going to get more to show his not good enough on 9?

  3. I think Rougerie, Fofana and Malzieu will be salivating at the prospect of running at Earls and d’Arcy

    With McFadden on the bench, its not like the Irish will be able to bring on a defensive centre either

    If the French mid-field have a field day, England will really start to fancy their chances
