My favourite things to talk about are guitars and rugby union so I figured with the NI's coming up I'd see who wants to talk eggball.
From my POV while the Ireland squad looks pretty familiar, the fact that Joe Schmidt is now calling the shots is huge. I loved how Leinster played under him and expectations here are really really high here. After ther Lions and before the end of the Rugby Championship I would have been resonably confidant of turning over the Aussies, not so now. 1 win from the 3 would not surprise me, though expect if we really show up then beating the Wallabies is not beyond us before our now annual battering from NZ.
How are England, Wales and Scotland looking?
