Still think this will be more difficult than ordinarily billed, as Fiji are a big, physical team (there again, we've just beaten one of those).

JS probably wants to look at other for this fixture and I wonder if we'll see Carbery at 15 or 10, as part of that thinking.

Ireland has only played Fiji 3 times, all November Internationals.

1995 44-8
2002 64-17
2009 41-6

All comprehensive wins and I expect at least another 40 point plus win for Ireland Its not arrogance, usually we play a more structured game centred around set pieces against Fiji which frustrates Fiji who try to run it from everywhere and Ireland picks them off. November weather in Dublin doesn't help either Fiji running style.

If that midfield partnership is correct that must be the largest centre pairing Ireland ever fielded.

Henshaw and McCloskey vs England is a close one.

Here's the Irish team. It is as much if not more of a second-string team than the Welsh team that shall play Georgia. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/42014917

Fupp....Fiji nearly scored and we can't get out of our own half (or even 22)

2nd half about to start: Ireland 17 Fiji 10.

Fiji's try was superb running enterprise.

Blimey, could be the greatest weekend for Fiji if they manage a win!

Certainly would and the Fijian tackling and turnovers (10 of them as I type) are just crushing us.

This is the NextGen of Irish rugby too.... :scratch:

I said this would be difficult and it is.

CJ Stander on. Carbery off.

64 gone.

Really poor and sloppy performance, should have expected it but still.

Keatley pen Ireland 20 Fiji 17. 66 gone.

They've stopped our maul stone dead.

Fiji pen. Ireland 20 Fiji 20. 68 gone.

TMO investigation, possible yellow: definite penalty; dubious tackle; no YC.

Ireland 23 Fiji 20. 73 gone.

We just cannot make any headway, against their defensive physicality.
