That is the best draw we could possibly have got. Neither Scotland or Japan will be easy but we would currently be favorites. As others have said it is now all about the schedule of the games. Any thoughts beyond that are into the realms of idle speculation which is what I think we are here for. Let the dreaming begin.

Does anyone know when the fixtures will be released? I seem to think it was towards the end of the year post draw last time rather than the year after.

South Africa would be likely q/f opponents and look very beatable too. But it would be typical Ireland to blow this.

Could we hold that thought until the morning of the game against SA, or whoever it may be.

Even now JS is probably thinking about RWC2019 and how the NZ result yesterday looks in that context.

Without doubt he has already studied what Scotland and SA did in the past month and he'll have recognised that both are still on an upward curve. SA in particular have improved dramatically in 12 months and we will certainly face a hyped-up Springbok Squad in November.

Townsend will be pleased with the Scots performance against Australia but we will get a better idea in 6N in new year, whether that was a function of Scottish skills or Australian implosion.

However, JS will have watched the NZ backplay very carefully, but particularly defensively. They are still the only team he "fears" internationally and yesterday's result suggests more vulnerability than before.

SA's upward curve is worryingly steep. Maybe France have regressed but SA look like they have a fearsome unity of purpose and they certainly were not go backwards under Erasmus

On South Africa, improved yes, dramatically no. They were so cr@p last year that any sort of improvement would look dramatic, let's see how they get on I need the Rugby Championship before we jump to any conclusions.
