Ireland’s fringe players get their opportunity to make a mark. A serious game for them with the matches before World Cup selection running out.

Joey Carberry gets his opportunity at out half and with an interesting looking backline. Will Addison is a fantastic pick for full back although I would have liked to see Andrew Conway get a run out there.

With a stellar year behind them, this is a great way to sign off for the year.
