The (disappointing) end of the Six Nations campaign ensures the next time we see Ireland in competitive action will be September's World Cup.
On this week's World in Union podcast, we caught up with former Connacht man and current coach with Hong Kong rugby union Brett Wilkinson and also picked the 31 Ireland squad for this year's tournament.
You can hear the lads discuss the squad from 18.50 here as well as try and predict some bolters who could force their way in.
