Declan Kidney has named the team to play Samoa and he has made ten changes with Johnny Sexton being dropped for Ronan O’Gara after his poor performance last week against South Africa.

Kidney will be hoping for a better performance and a badly need win.

” Its a mix of experience and youth, I believe in the squad we have and a lot of the players were unlucky not to have made the cut against South Africa, We now have a squad, we have to build it, so if we get any injuries we still have a team that can win, That is what we aim to do every time we go out on the field” said Kidney

Stoke introduced their Irish trio of Marc Wilson, Glenn Whelan and Jon Walters as they crept home 3-2 winners..............................

Carberry Favourite To Take Ruby’s Crown as champion national hunt jockey
William Hills have installed Paul Carberry as their new 4-5 favourite for the 2010/11 Irish National Hunt Jockey’s Championship following the news that Ruby Walsh could be sidelined for up to three months.
