Alongside a 36 year old Earls, 38 year old Sexton and 37 year old Toner no less.

Sexton has spoken about wanting to be like Tom Brady and play on till he's 40. Sportspeople in general are keeping going much longer than decades ago. There are loads of top level boxers in their mid or even late 30s. Look at Justin Gatlin winning a World Championships silver medal in the 100m at the age of 37. No reason Earls and Kearney can't keep going for another four years.

You better convince me that you're not trolling at this stage.

2019 https://touch.boards.ie/thread/2057474430/1

2015 https://touch.boards.ie/thread/2056389107

Hanrahan at 15 with Rory Scholes on the wing for ‘19 and McFadden at 12 with a second row combination of Nagle and Tuohy for 2015, predictions taken from the first team in each thread show how ridiculous it is to try this. But a bit of craic I suppose.

Reading back through the 2019 thread, almost everyone had Marty Moore starting, the move to Wasps was really a terrible decision for him.

Also the below jem from IBF:

Hard luck Jordan Larmour and James Ryan, I had high hopes for you.

My prediction,

4 players traveled injured,

7 players travel on poor form but have central contracts,

10 get left st home as they never got consistent enough exposure, not 10 mins here n there

Thinking of predicting future teams, I think the 2023 RWC will come a bit too soon for Joe Tomane. To qualify for Ireland through the Olympic 7s loophole he'd first need citizenship, which he'd be eligible for in Summer 2023. Then he'd need to play in four Olympic qualifying 7s events to be able to switch his allegiance to Ireland. But if it's the same as it was this time the qualifying events for Paris 2024 will take place too early in 2023 for him to be qualified, so he'll have to wait until 2027 to qualify. But he should be an option in the green jumper for the 2027 tournament in Argentina, Australia or Russia anyway.

Tomane being away on international duty with Ireland from 2027 onwards would finally open the door for Conor O'Brien to get the gametime he needs to develop at age 31.
