Having seen how badly wrong people were 4 years ago this is a pretty difficult task. I think there are always far fewer changes than people think and then of course there are bolsters like Henshaw who are impossible to predict because they are only 16 or 17 now.
15 Stuart Olding - if he manages to stay fit I think we'll find that he may move position, he could even up at 10, but I've liked what I seen of him at FB. Kearney could easily still be in position though.
14 Luke Fitzgerald - all his injuries to date may prolong his career
13 Robbie Henshaw - safe bet, although Ringrose is a talent
12 Sam Arnold - only 19 and already has a couple of pro 12 caps under his belt and has already been promoted from the Ulster academy, I think he is quite a prospect.
11 Simon Zebo - May make the 11 jersey his own once Bowe and Trimble etc retire
10 Paddy Jackson - Sexton may still be a factor and then there are the likes of Byrne and JJ, but I think Jackson is most likely to be the 10.
9 Conor Murray - safe bet
1 Cian Healy - injury allowing a safe bet
2 Sean Cronin - next in line to Best
3 Tadgh Furlong - very promising TH, could make the position his own for 10 years
4 Devin Toner - struggling here a bit, but I think Toner could still be around, he isn't renowned for his pace and athleticism so age shouldn't dim his strengths
5 Iain Henderson - will be in the team, not sure if in the second row or back row
6 Peter O'Mahony - if he is in the team will be captain
7 Sean O'Brien - hopefully his body holds up
8 Jack O'Donoghue - very impressed by what I've seen of JOD. He could well be Heaslip's successor.
