Its going to be a very tough game at Croke Park this weekend. My heart is telling me Wales - but my head is telling me something different. I have this image of O'Driscoll showing us again that he is one of the best three quarters in the world game.
No serious disagreement with the team. Mostly, it picks itself, particularly the pack. I hope that Alun Wyn Jones is fully recovered though. At halfback, I thought he would have gone with Dwayne Peel, using Phillips as an impact player 10 minutes into the second half. Stephen Jones' selection was a dead cert - as were all the backs. Only question was whether Jamie Roberts is ready to take over from Mark Jones. I don't think so, especially when defensive capability is going to be the key to the result. As writing this my heart is starting to get the better of my head. By Saturday, I'll be predicting a 15 point win! We Welsh will never learn.
