    Backrow is also a bit of a lottery, Jordi Murphy will be getting a lot more rugby next season, VdF is left out here, Deegan and Tinoney could both have career seasons etc...

    It's hard to fit a guy who can only cover 7 in unless he starts. If everyone is fit SOB and Leavy are ahead of him in my opinion.

    Probably something like:

    1. J McGrath
    2. N Scannell
    3. T Furlong
    4. I Henderson
    5. T Beirne
    6. D Leavy
    7. SOB
    8. CJ Stander
    9. C Murray
    10. J Sexton (Captain?)
    11. J Stockdale
    12. R Henshaw
    13. G Ringrose
    14. K Earls
    15. J Larmour

    16. S Cronin
    17. C Healy
    18. A Porter
    19. J Ryan
    20. POM
    21. L McGrath
    22. J Carbery
    23. A Conway

    Others

    Dave Kilcoyne, John Ryan, Ultan Dillane, Josh Van Der Flier, Jack Conan, Ross Byrne, Bundee Aki and Barry Daly.

    This is assuming that Paddy Jackson is in jail and that Rory Best and Rob Kearney don't make it. (These are listed in descending order of likeliness.)

    Other players who could make it are Devin Toner, Jordi Murphy, Max Deegan (I suspect it might be to soon), Rhys Ruddock, John Cooney, Marmion, Ian Keatley, Chris Farrell(closest player I left out), Adam Byrne, Matt Healy, Tiernen O'Halloran (Just in case we haveany fans here) and Alex Wooton (chance next year at Munster with Zebo leaving and possibly the most talented of the lot.)

    29. Weber
    30. Mo'unga
    31. Barrett

    A lot of guys that are haarrrd to leave out, especially Crotty, Naholo and for me Savea. Maybe exchange one of them for Todd since we don't really need 3 sevens, but I'd want Todd be there.

    Hi Jenner, nice team mate, I agree with most of that, but when Crotty is fit, he's our guy, super reliable, deceptively good on attack, best defense and distribution, he's essential to the AB's when he's fit, so experienced too, I'd want him in those tight games.

    I know Hansen doesn’t like him as a lock but surely if he continues to play there for the Canes then Fifita should be in that 19 shirt. Barrett’s a quality player but I don’t think he ups the pace like the other bench players do, certainly not as much as Fifita would.

    I was hoping Fifita might be used like Vito was, utility man, massive impact off the bench

    Larmour and Conway would rotate depending on form. Same for James Ryan and Beirne/Henderson. Not really sure about scrum half replacement. Other than that, I think the team is pretty solid.
