You hardly thing there will be a raft of changes do you? Not Kidney's style. Sexton will be lucky to start against Fiji.
It's hardly Dad's army - Kearney, Earls, Healy, Cronin, Ferris, Heaslip, Fitzgearld, O'Leary, Bowe and Sexton are all in the squad and are all 25 or younger, front row and 2nd row players don't hit their prime till there 30 plus. It's a very good squad, what more do expect?
O'Gara is the incumbent, this time last year I was watching Sexton struggle while playing AIL with Mary's, he is far from the 2nd coming. He will see action against Oz, start against Fiji and all going well he'll stake a claim for a start against SA.
We have issues at tight-head and openside and we'll never fill the vacum once BOD retires but Kidney is doing very very well as head coach and at the moment we are very lucky to have him.
