Ireland XV v Wales not revealed yet
31 Jul 2015 20:08
Joe Schmidt has given his Ireland stars no indication who is in the running to face Wales in Cardiff next weekend.
-
Ulster lock Iain Henderson admitted head coach Schmidt is "keeping us in the dark" over selection for the first of four World Cup warm-up matches.
-
Ireland take on Wales at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, 8 August, before facing Scotland, Wales again in a return match in Dublin and England.
-
Schmidt has been at pains not to reduce his resources by whittling down his training group before he names his 31-man World Cup squad on the 31 August deadline.
-
"Joe is so hard to predict when it comes to selecting squads," Henderson said.
-
"He keeps us on our toes at all times, so it's typical of him to be keeping us in the dark and that's what's happening now.
-
"It's making everyone work harder and harder all the time, and that in turn probably puts more pressure on him just to make those selections decisions.
-
"We're not even sure what the squad will be like for next weekend's game yet: Joe has kept us in the dark on that, and no doubt that's deliberate."
