Ireland Team based on Quotas

Postby Oldschool » November 13th, 2017, 8:33 pm

What would an Ireland team look like if JS had provincial based quotas imposed on him.
Quota Rules.
A min/max of 5/6 each for Leinster Munster Ulster and 3/5 from Connacht and two wild cards in case JS wanted to pick Zebo for exampke or two extra players from any province.
In theory the max number of players any province could have is 8 ie 6 from max entitled plus two wild cards.
Perhaps some leeway where inter provincial transfer have occurred. Henshaw and Conway come to mind.
So a possible match day squad for JS to ponder.
Henshaw (Connacht)
McGrath Best Furlong
Henderson Toner
SOB VDF Stander
So far so good
Leinster(6) Munster(3) Ulster(3) Connacht(3)
The Bench
Scannell McGrath Ryan Dillane Cooney Carberry Bowe.
Leinster(8) Munster(6) Ulster(5) Connacht(4)
Getting Ulster up to 5 was difficult because of the Jackson and Olding situation and injuries to Payne and Gilmore.
Give JS a dig out and point out the omissions or better options.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall who's the greatest player of them all? It is Drico your majesty.

If quotas operated here you'd probably find Finlay Bealham making a lot more matchday squads. Adeleokun and TOH would be firmly in the mix. Dave Heffernan or McCartney might have benefited from our lack of depth at hooker (and already, they couldn't be much behind Herring or Tracy).
