Here’s the team:
Leigh Halfpenny (Wales),Alex Cuthbert (Wales), Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland) Jonathan Davies (Wales), George North (Wales), Jonathan Sexton (Ireland), Mike Phillips (Wales); Alex Corbisiero (England), Tom Youngs (England), Adam Jones (Wales), Alun Wyn Jones (Wales), Paul O’Connell (Ireland), Tom Croft (England), Sam Warburton (Wales, capt), Jamie Heaslip (Ireland).
Subs: Richard Hibbard (Wales), Mako Vunipola (England), Dan Cole (England), Geoff Parling (England), Dan Lydiate (Wales), Ben Youngs (England), Owen Farrell (England), Sean Maitland (Scotland).
Astonished at Maitland as sub, very strange. No Faletau on bench either.
As for our original predictions….:
I get 9.
Newman gets 9.
Boondock gets 8.
and Mark gets 9.
Pretty consistently mediocre all of us…….I blame the injuries….
