Pick Your Ireland Team To Play New Zealand At The Aviva Stadium

Pick Your Ireland Team To Play New Zealand At The Aviva Stadium
By Gavan Casey Updated

We've poked the bear, and now it's time to finish the job.

With history made in Chicago and a recovering New Zealand arriving to Dublin on the back of a reflexive win over Italy in Rome, only two squad players have departed Joe Schmidt's Ireland for their clubs - Munster duo Dave Kilcoyne, who impressed against Canada, and Darren Sweetnam, who torched the Maori All Blacks on Friday night.

But with Peter O'Mahony, Seán O'Brien and Iain Henderson all now available for selection in the pack, it remains to be seen to what extent Ireland's Kiwi head coach will tinker with his side to face his native country at the Aviva.

New Zealand haven't lost consecutive Tests to the same team since a South African double in the Tri Nations seven years ago, and they'll be looking for blood after Ireland broke a string of proud All Blacks records in the Windy City.

With almost a full compliment to select from, we're calling on you to pick your Ireland team to play New Zealand in Dublin. Stick of twist after Rob Kearney's gargantuan display two weekends ago, after Tiernan O'Halloran's brace vs Canda? Is Peter O'Mahony sufficiently match-fit for a game of such inevitable intensity? Is it time to throw Garry Ringrose in at the deep end with an eye on 2019? You be the judge, but do so with care, because hell hath no fury like the All Blacks scorned.
