Sexton will continue playing for Ireland I believe.

That would be an awesome squad to bring, but I think 1 or 2 older players would be important as well to guide the younger guys through.

I think most of those players will actually tour though, since its likely that a new coach will be brought in after the 6Nations. Henshaw, McSharry, Nagle, O'Donnell might not make the cut but I hope they do. They have all been extremely impressive this season.

I definitely think Cave is a player for the future. He is a very solid defender at 13 and works really well with Luke Marshall and PJ. In my mind McFadden is a better 12 than 13, but Marshall will have that jersey for a while I think. I reckon Marshall/McFadden at 12 and Cave at 13, with Maddigan/PJ at 10 should be the looked at for the coming years.

P.Marshall, PJ/Maddigan, L.Marshall/McFadden, Cave, Zebo, Gilroy, Fitzgerald/Henshaw/Jones should be the backline brought on tour this summer for Ireland (presuming Zebo/Gilroy don't get Lions selections, which I doubt they will). And bring Trimble and Bowe also to add some experience.

Tim Nanai-Williams finishes amazing passage of play and scores great solo effort

Yea, I felt the same. Although with Farrell on the team it's almost acceptable to go to the corner. Give the boy some kind of challenge!

Edinburgh's Nick De Luca flips Tom Grabham in dangerous tackle

Terrible tackle, he knew well what he was doing going into the tackle. Silly stuff, Grabham could have broken his neck. He should get a decent ban for that, despite regretting his actions.

Agreed, although Nanai was wrecked from that passage of play. The match was fantastic overall, really enjoyable stuff from both teams. A lot of wingers make no attempt to get it near the sticks. Zebo does it for Munster though, and there are a few wingers who also do it as much as possible.
