1. Cian Healy
2. Ross Ford
3. Adam Jones

4. Richie Gray
5. Ryan Jones/Courtney Lawes (or another tall back-row hiding as a lock. Against an underpowered Aussie scrum I think having a mobile lock will be a necessity)

6. Sean O'Brien
7. Sam Warburton
8. Dave Denton

9. Ben Youngs
10. Jonathan Sexton

11. Tim Visser

12. George North (I think he might get quite a lot of game time at centre this season, and be rather good at it!)
13. Brian O'Driscol

14. Chris Ashton
15. Lee Halfpenny


16. Dylan Hartley
17. Dan Cole
18. Alun Wyn Jones
19. Justin Tipuric

Defending champion Reds blown away by the Sharks in Brisbane

I don't have too much of a problem with what Will Genia said. First, he says that the team on the front foot normally gets the rub of the green from the referee, but I think that's him identifying that the Reds didn't play well enough, and second, he says that he didn't understand how the try decision could be inconclusive. As I understand it, Kaplan questioned the TMO about the first grounding, which was not over the line, and hence the try was not given, despite the second grounding potentially being a try. In an ideal world perhaps he shouldn't have asked that question, but I've heard far worse comments from players/coaches, and he wasn't directly critical of the referee.
