Yep thought he would defo make the extended squad.


Highlight Reel McCloskey didn't make it either.

Well done Dave Kearney.

Probably only Rory O’Loughlin and Fergus McFadden from Leinster unlucky to miss out. Mike Haley isn’t good enough IMHO.

With that many players, I'm more surprised by who's missing that who's in.

JGP
Roux
Deegan
Addison
McCloskey
Blade
Sweetnam
Tom Farrell

I'd say you'd get a decent XV out of players not picked for this squad.

Addison hasn't played since getting injured in the pre 6 Nations camp - he had surgery in April

Roux and Addison probably the big surprises out of that. Can't understand Schmidt dropping Roux now after he has picked him so regularly over the last few years. Or is he injured? Addison will surely be in too if he can prove his fitness. Very valuable player to have in a RWC squad.

Delighted for DK to be in.

Not sure what R Scannell has done to be in there!

Out of all those I'm most surprised about Addison's exclusion.

Are the IRFU precluded from saying a player is unavailable due to injury if the player doesn't want his injury status made public?

Are you thinking with Addison? It's odd that he hasn't been included given his versatility and ability.

given its a 44-man training squad for pre-season and preparatory camps....shown Joe correct technique and ability holding a tackle bag and mimic other teams back-line movements perhaps?

Just checked with sources, possibility that he might not play again apparently. Hope that doesn't transpire, he's a super player.

Dads from Kildare, played for us at U-19, turned down offer to play for Wales at U20, playing for England in BaaBaas game which does not tie him to England. I wonder could a chat from Andy Farrell get him in green?

Maybe, but there isn't really a spot for him at one the provinces. Classy player, but he's doing well where he is and would probably back himself to kick on to the England squad proper.

Scannell would become an attractive option in the event of an injury to Aki or Henshaw due to his ability to cover 10. I'd be interested to see how he'd go with the better attack coaching at Ireland level compared to Munster.

Apparently Roux has a neck injury so is out at the moment. He might come back into the mix. Surprised about Tom Farrell. I thought he would have being worth a look, Deegan too.

England vs Baabaa's is well worth a watch. Three Connacht players got gametime with Heffernan getting on the scoresheet.

There are already 4 outhalves in the training squad.

There are 4 centres but it's been an attritional position so 5th choice is not totally irrelevant. I'd have had McCloskey in there ahead of Scannell though.

Scannell's inclusion is 90%+ down to his use of the left peg. Cooney rated ahead of him as cover for 10. Carty is the 10 who has made most progress, over the past 4 months, in the view of coaches.
