But injury is the big issue ahead of the final Test with Ringrose, Leavy, Henderson and Conway all out. Joe has made big calls in the backrow with Jack Conan starting at 8, POM moving to 7 and Stander to 6. And Sean Cronin may be first choice hooker next season, as he gets his first start of the tour, with Schmidt’s words ringing in his ears. Shane Horgan joins us to preview the game.
