The Japanese team selection for this will be interesting - will they go all out and try to take on Ireland in front of a roaring home crowd with the belief that they can win the pool or will they rest some key players in the hope that they can turn-over a demoralised Scotland in a few weeks and qualify second from the group?

PP is at 21.

I missed out on the Scots game as my PP account was locked for some reason when I went to place the bet.

Not rolling out your first team until game 3 of a home World Cup? That'd be daft.

I'd like to see a strong side named for Saturday. We'll need to be on top of our game defensively to counter their attacking threat so I'd expect our big tacklers (Furlong, Ryan, Van der Flier, Conan etc) to start. Give Ryan and Henderson something close to a half each, with Kleyn coming on and Beirne playing a full 80 between lock and covering Van der Flier once the game is hopefully won.

Similar setup to last week. Look to murder them in the tight and stifle their expansive game at source.

1. Kilcoyne (Porter after 60)
2. Scannell - (Cronin after 60)
3. Furlong - (Ryan after 50)
4. Beirne - (Henderson after 40/50)
5. Ryan - (Kleyn after 40/50)
6. Ruddock
7. Van der Flier (Beirne after 40/50)
8. Conan
9. Murray (McGrath after 60)
10. Carberry (Carty after 50)
11. Stockdale
12. Farrell
13. Ringrose
14. Earls (Larmour after 60)
15. Kearney

Fair point. Perhaps we hold back Cronin in a similar way to Scannell last week.

Looks pretty good. Although I'd definitely start Conway again as his aerial ability will be needed. Probably wouldn't risk Porter as LH sub just in case anything happened to Killer early doors.

Did we know about this spoofer that should be playing against us?
Japan's fullback was suspended for two years after failing a random drugs test in April 2011. Yamanaka claimed to have used a cream containing steroids to grow a moustache.

They will of course try and win but it is possible they may try a very attacking team with the hope of picking up a 4 try bonus. Might be a bit hopeful against Ireland's defence but if they open up the game and tries start flowing no-one will care. If they get 2 BPs (I know, I know, very unlikely as Ireland are not going to want them so close and the defence will not want to ship points) it Scotland fail to get maximum points against Samoa and/or Russia it could make that final match up very complicated.

I suppose the reality is I would like them to get 2 BPs despite the worries that may cause for the Irish defence, maybe it would acceptable if they got 3 tries in the last 10.

I can see Japan scoring at least a couple of tries on us. They won't get much front foot ball but they will find space out wide and punish us at least a few times.

As the best team in the world Ireland should win by at least 50 and hold Japan tryless. Anything else would be disappointing.

No.2 in World Rugby, No.1 in craic. ;)

The AFL grand final is dangerously close to overlapping with the start of this game. No one follows GWS so the post game celebrations should be brief.

Japan will be looking for a big scalp and could cause Ireland some problems. It really depends on what team Ireland put out. It would be very risky to make changes for the sake of it. Might be a good exercise to give most of the team that faced Scotland a short turn around. If we progress beyond QF they'll need that resilience.

That said I'd like to see Carberry and Luke McGrath start.

We would never be so rude towards our hosts. We will play like shit and scrape a 3 point win with a lucky penalty in the dying minutes

For laughs Ireland should let Japan win by a few points, preferably in a high-scoring try fest.

It would make it almost impossible for Scotland to then qualify for the QF - would require an absolute horsing of Japan in the final game.
