Wow I completely forgot Strauss would be eligible too..

On that, Best or Strauss will start for Ireland? Will they be the two fighting for hooker for the Lions?

Best in his current form is well, well ahead of Strauss.

Strauss won't make Ireland team and hence will find it difficult to make Lions tour. Ford, Best and either Hartley/Rees/Bennett I'd imagine as things stand.

George Ford would be a good outside bet as an out-half. Massive potential, and is likely to nail down the Leicester and England out half position eventually.

Don't see Strauss overhauling Best tbh. If Best gets injured Strauss might be the man to step in but Best is a proven international player who is in good form.
