I'd say POM will start. They said Jennings has been called into the squad, not the 22. So if Henry or Ruddock are already in the squad perhaps they will get the bench spot?

Knowing Kidney however they wont be. He'll go for the least progressive, most absurd and pointless option. Although Jennings can be usefull coming on after 60 minutes to speed things up a bit

Wonder who will be called up. Dom Ryan? proper number 7. Chances are minimal but would be good to see.
Dang.

I think Kev McLaughlin has been with the squad, he could be in with a shout, or maybe promote Toner to the bench and have McCarthy as back-row cover?

I'd love to see Henry get the shout but Kidney just doesn't seem to rate him.

Edit: just saw the post about Jennings, presume he'll be benching while POM starts.

Is it an accurate presumption to make that Jennings will be on the bench instead of Henry?

If this is the case, I give up.

It would seem the Ulster lads are not well thought of by the current management.

Its POM's first start though, you cant realistically have no experienced cover on the bench when blooding a new player. As much as I'd like Henry to be there if he was we wouldnt really have any cover. We know Jennings can do a job so he's the safer option I suppose.

Deccie's only brought through one Ulster player (Tom Court) in his four years in charge. The fact they've once again become a major European force has completely passed him by.

So can we start questioning Kidneys stance on Ulster players? I know Best has been made captain but he's the only provincial captai left in the starting line-up. That was a no brainer decision.

Tuohy and Henry can feel very hard dome by in these selections. And lets not forget Craig Gilroy. A starting winger for Ulster who is apparently not good enough for the Wolfhounds

Touhy's snub I can understand. He jumps at the front and doesn't have McCarthy 's experience of running a lineout. But Jennings ahead of Henry makes no sense, especially as Henry has been training with the squad afaik. Maybe Kidney wants an out and out 7 just in case POM doesn't work out and Scotland will be playing 2 7s?
