Pear young seamer Josh Tongue been called up for Ireland test.

Hope he gives them a good licking.

It would be the lick of the Irish.

Can the Bears now have Woaksie back now then please

Won’t see Woakes in a Bears shirt again this season

Nor an England shirt is my concern. Hope he doesn't become a permanent 12th man as that's a waste of his season.
Honestly if they are not going to include him in the XI he should be released. At this stage in his career he needs to play cricket rather than be 12th man. 12th man should be up and coming youngster who's just missed out on selection.

I imagine that they’re resting Woakes to preserve his fitness for the Ashes in case Jimmy or Robinson aren’t fit. They also get to see how Tongue gets on in test cricket. He has the ability to be a surprise package against the Aussies, he’s pretty quick.

Agree, think Tongue is getting his chance as an extra alternative for Robinson, going to be a pretty intense Ashes series and Robinson might not be robust enough to play every test at 100%

Not sure you’d be wanting day 4 tickets for this….over mid Saturday afternoon with a win by an innings on evidence of day one so far

I've heard the Irish aren't exactly up for this match, which is disappointing.

I sympathise they’ve had Test status since 2017 and this is what their 5th or 6th Test? Ridiculous.

Still, a Test at Lord's should be motivation in itself. We'd still have won, but it does take a bit from the game when one side can't be arsed.

Good to see Ireland giving the crowd a bit of a day of it.

We’re looking a bit light with only 4 bowlers.

The lack of a test quality spinner is the obvious weak link in the team
