First topic message reminder :

Ireland are going for Grand Slam wins on Saturday and Sunday this weekend with the seniors and U20s lining out in Dublin and Cork to face England.

After the slew of injuries in the Scotland, Ireland were looking at being down a good few players for their final match.

Bealham, Beirne, Henderson, McCarthy and Ringrose are all definitely out of the reckoning.  Rónan Kelleher may join them.   Sheehan and Doris might recover sufficiently from their knocks to be named in the squad.

Team named at 3.30pm Irish time.  

Porter, Sheehan, Furlong, Ryan, Baird, O'Mahony, Van der Flier, Doris
Gibson-Park, Sexton, Lowe, Aki, Henshaw, Hansen, Keenan
R: Herring, Healy, O'Toole, Treadwell, Conan, Murray, Byrne, O'Brien

England looking to change up things from their 23 last Saturday with Owen Farrell starting at 10, alongside Manu Tuilagi in midfield.  

Genge, George, Kyle Sinckler, Itoje, Ribbans, Ludlam, Willis, Dombrandt
Steward, Watson, Slade, Tuilagi. Arundell, Farrell, van Poortvliet
R: Walker, Vunipola, Cole, Isiekwe, Curry, Mitchell, Smith, Marchant.

In the past when at half time they figured out they've dropped the ball traditionally they'd look to even up.

Ireland have been very poor. The pressure and expectation of the Grand Slam appears to have stifled them, which doesn't bode well for the World Cup...

I mean they fell over themselves to check if Watson had shepherded earlier in the game but Jonkers silent for that.

It’s curious how Mr Jonker consistently spots infringements by England but not by their opponents.

Well Ebgmand have shown some fight since last weekend but many won't play for England again. Rebuilding storrs after this game.

And I'll say it now...Ireland won't win the world Cup. Its going Down South Again.

Ok, nothing more. I think the whole backrow has been better tbh. I think Ribbans has brought more balance to the pack, Chessum and Itoje are too underpowered.
