France team named, Montpellier bound Daniel Brennan starts at tighthead, we can expect lots of balls/joe articles on why isnt he playing for Ireland and working for Premier Dairies

More importantly, the French blindside is called Woki, best named player sinced Remi Martin

Monsieur Brennan played for the French 20s v South Africa and Georgia in last year's U20 World Championship - so he is committed to the French cause.

No he isn't - the French BaBas were their next national team last year and u20s can no longer be used as a disqualifying level.


He is however, to all intents and purposes, French so why would he want to play for Ireland alright

No, he didn't come into the Irish side until the year after the tour, at the same time as Smith, Saunders, Staples, Clarke and Geoghegan.

Rob Saunders' son played for the u20s last year along with the sons of Michael Kiernan and Brendan Mullins. And I feel even more old!

Yup and Alain Penaud's son would be on the senior team too except for injury. Alexandre Dumoulin is Marc Cecillion's son, but the least said about that the better.

Niall Saunders is back playing btw. Made his debut for Harlequins in November. No idea what his career prospects are but the blood issue he had sounded horrible. I thought it was a sudden thing but he'd had it for most of his life, really impressive to overcome it like he has.
