Kate Rowan: Speculation on Six Nations selection takes flight with focus on wing
IRISH rugby is rife with speculation this week. There is much talk of Heineken Cup permutations, with particular focus upon the fortunes of Munster and Leinster. Adding to the media mix is the rising conjecture surrounding Jonathan Sexton and his French fanciers.
With the fever surrounding these stories, there is not much hype around Declan Kidney’s announcement of his Six Nations and Irish Wolfhounds squads tomorrow - yet. This could also be due to the fact that much of the young blood that had been called for this time last year has since been infused.
Maybe the make-up of the squads will not provide as many surprises as some but once European destinies have been decided, there is bound to be the usual debate surrounding starting names.
