Ireland coach Declan Kidney's selection for the Six Nations opener is a step in the right direction, says James Hosie.
The inclusion of promising wingers Craig Gilroy and Simon Zebo is a bold decision, but the back row offers no such excitement.
Gilroy's Six Nations debut might be a controversial pick, but will ease to pressure on Kidney to freshen things up, says Kieran Beckles.
While doubts remain about the 21-year-old's defensive abilities, he is the right man for what could be one of the highlights of the entire tournament in Cardiff.
