They have plenty of talent in their squad and will be the subject of plenty of money from patriotic punters both in the build up to the tournament and right throughout the matches in New Zealand.

In Brian O'Driscoll and Paul O'Connell, Ireland have two players of the highest quality they will be hoping will lead them to a successful tournament, both players are former Captains of the British and Irish Lions and they will need all of that experience once again in 2011. O'Driscoll has been the talisman for the Irish for many years now and although he may be slightly past his best he still has the ability to turn a game and inspire his team mates
