    I think it being in Chicago will be of benefit for Ireland IMO less pressure and should get a reasonable support size.

    Would you prefer a win in Ireland? A win the USA makes it feel a tad disconnected? Or just a win against the All Blacks and the monkey off the shoulder is good enough?

    The hype on this forum is starting to give me a few nerves :D

    There's actually a great TV show called 'Shameless (USA)' - Which is centered around an alcoholic Irish decedent father and his dysfunctional family living on the South Side of Chicago, it's truly hilarious.

    There's a huge Irish contingent in Chicago, so I expect the stadium to be packed with Irish supporters, it will be some what of a home game for them, it's a fantastic occasion.

    Beggars can't be choosers! I won't be at an Ireland v NZ game for at least two years, whenever you come back to Dublin, and I'm tuning in from Toulouse so I won't be in the mist of huge celebrations regardless! So to answer, I'd take it now and run if it was offered!

    Ah I didn't realise Todd wasn't in the 23, really liked what I saw of him during the RC.
    Also I don't like Sam Cane one bit
