This season’s 6 Nations is still scheduled to kick off on February 6th but as we have seen things could change in the next few weeks. Ireland will face Wales hopefully in Cardiff on Sunday February 7th. Here is the squad I would select for the Championship.
Of course some of these players will be ruled out through injury and for other reasons over the course of the Championship.
Cian Healy, James Cronin, Peter Dooley, John Ryan, Tom O Toole, Andrew Porter.
Ronan Kelleher, Dave Heffernan, Rob Herring.
Tadgh Beirne, James Ryan, Ultan Dillane, Gavin Thornbury.
Peter O Mahony, Rhys Ruddock, Will Connors, CJ Stander, Gavin Coombes. (18)
Craig Casey, John Cooney, Jamison Gibson Park.
Ross Byrne, Jack Carty, Ben Healy.
Robbie Henshaw, Chris Farrell, Bundee Aki, James Hume.
Andrew Conway, Jordan Larmour, Jacob Stockdale, Hugo Keenan, James Lowe, Keith Earls. (16)
Here is the squad of 34 I would select and of course there is room for others to come in and be part of the squad….
