Is there any alternative to Healy? Because although his work rate and ball in hand skills are great, he is a terrible scrummager and I feel this has cost Ireland quite a lot in the past. If we go down and have Healy start we're going to be annihilated in the scrum.
Isn't the main reason he was so good in the Six Nations because he took over kicking duties? If they pick someone else to do the kicking I think it's a pretty even contest (a lot closer than some seem to think anyway) between Hogg, Kearney and Halfpenny, though I'd probably pick Halfpenny in the end.
