Aki,Adeolokun,Marmion are the standout names.

O'Halloran is pretty good as well, and Jarrad Butler is a good aussie 7 on his day, used to play for the Brumbies in Super rugby.

Stars for Connacht are the others mentioned and Roux + Dillane - both on the cusp/in the Ireland squad.

I wonder if Adeolokun is/will be Irish qualified?

Not really going to see him play if he sticks with Nigeria.

Adeolokun has been in Ireland since age 11 and got a cap v Canada in 2016.

Surprised Fao'siliva, Haupt, Baldwin and/or Taufete'e aren't involved. However it's good to see a mix of experience and rotation.

Why didn't they have:

11. Adams
12. Mills
13. Hammond
14. Humphreys
15. Pennell

Probably because Hammond's defence has been criticised at 13 by Gary Gold.

Havenít seen Josh at FB much. Donít know too much about his kicking from hand, but if heís given some space Iíll bet we see some pretty impressive runs out of defence.

Didn't he go off fairly early in the A league game? Think Baldwin ended up playing 10 for the last 40 min.
