  1. Am I the only one surprised by Ollie Kohn on the bench? He hardly screams impact. He’s more the sort of player to hammer and grind down the opposition so that they are softened up for your proper impact players. Still we’ve been here before and Wales love being written off, and despite many commentators picking Healy as a Lions prop in waiting, their scrum (as England showed last year) is vulnerable – plus no Priestland – so another bonus

  2. So the logic of leaving out the best 7 in Europe. Beats me. The Irish always start at 90 miles an hour so logic would be get the fastest 7 on the pitch to slow the ball down and maybe nick a few.
