It'll be interesting what approach Schmidt takes. Does he go with Strauss to back up best due to his experience, even though he is now possibly 3rd choice at Leinster or potentially go with Tracey or scannell. Suppose with the presence of toner in the line out that may favour Tracey over scannell.
I suspect Strauss for the Scotland game then possibly a change for the italy game. Scotland have a big second row, and wouldn't want to take too big a risk....I was there in 2013 when the line out was destroyed and we lost the game.

I'm more interested in the backrow/ bench makeup....some serious options open to Schmidt.

Would be Carberry, but he had surgery recently? Jack Carty then?

All the recent talk of project players and residency rules, CJ is the only PP in the 40 man squad. If Payne was fit, there would be 2 to be fair. Would be interesting to compare that with the other 6N squads.

Does this imply that project players are unimportant in the grand scheme of things or that the provinces have, generally, just not been very good at bringing in projects that help Ireland, rather than just themselves? Ultimately, I think it is the latter.
