    Ahhh you got to dream eh.

    Only two points I'd take issue with on the main post. I dont see you beating Ireland in Ireland. Not because were anything special, but because you guys havent really shown the yourselves to be capable of beating us.

    And Williams has been tempted out of retirement while Charvis has been ommitted. News just in.

    Backs: Lee Byrne (Ospreys), Jamie Roberts (Cardiff Blues), Tom James (Cardiff Blues), Mark Jones (Llanelli Scarlets), Shane Williams (Ospreys), Tom Shanklin (Cardiff Blues), Sonny Parker (Ospreys), Gavin Henson (Ospreys), James Hook (Ospreys), Stephen Jones (Llanelli Scarlets), Dwayne Peel (Llanelli Scarlets), Mike Phillips (Ospreys), Gareth Cooper (Gloucester).

    Forwards: Gethin Jenkins (Cardiff Blues), Adam Jones (Ospreys), Duncan Jones (Ospreys), Rhys Thomas (Newport Gwent Dragons), Huw Bennett (Ospreys), Matthew Rees (Llanelli Scarlets), Ian Evans (Ospreys), Ian Gough (Ospreys), Alun Wyn Jones (Ospreys), Jonathan Thomas (Ospreys), Martyn Williams (Cardiff Blues), Robin Sowden-Taylor (Cardiff Blues), Gareth Delve (Gloucester), Alix Popham (Llanelli Scarlets), Ryan Jones (Ospreys, capt).

    Thanks for doing my job for me :D I'm not sure we'll beat you in Ireland, but I think I'd be confident of a good result out there. Either way, I don't see Ireland finishing higher than 4th. I'm not saying Wales have the capability of doing better, but we have a new coach who could possibly make us pull off a surprise this year, whereas Ireland have the same backroom and I wouldn't bet on them improving for a year or two. Although the same could be same about Wales, but I'm a biased f*g. :p
