    Well done Shannon. The spiritual heart of Irish rugby lives on!

    Great news for Bruff RFC, beating Bucks, to copperfasten their Div 1B status. How the management of Munster rugby or the Munster Academy never gave an opportunity to Brendan Deady and/or Tony Cahill baffles me. Cahill of the Oz soon.

    Hear that Eoghan Cahill is leaving job as Shannon backs coach - correct? What about Stephen Keogh? Will Div 1A survival be enough?

    Well done today....Great performance, lots of Spirit, and gutsy abrasive rugby by all the Shannon Lads....Few sore bodies after the last 2 weeks, and well deserved few pints and blow out needed tonight!!!!!! Wow....pitch in great condition at Musgrave....along with a "Pedantic" linesman who was worried about how many were on the sideline!!!!!!

    Keogh and Eoin Cahill reappointed as head coach and backs coach respectively

    Did John Shine leave Bruff for Shannon? Word around town anyone know how true it is?

  7. #2557
    Yeah it's true. He'll be badly missed out in Bruff though. He's a quality 7.

    Thats a shocker that he left Bruff, a bit disappointing really but I suppose bruff dont pay players so its hard to keep them when you have limk clubs offering cash.

  9. #2559
    Huge shock for Bruff. i know he has been involved with Munster A's a couple of times so maybe he sees himself having a better chance of been involved more often playing with Shannon...
    Bruff have lost a huge amount of players aswell. Since the Bateman final until now they have lost something like 17 players..

    What age would John be lads? Has he missed the boat for an academy or development deal?

    He's 28. It would be nice to think he can still make it but nowadays 28 seems too old to break in.

    Way too old for the academy and really pushing it for a development deal now. He'll need to play B&I cup rugby at least this year to have any chance. Still though, if the rumours of Barry O'Mahony getting a development contract at 26 are true then it gives hope to the likes of John

    I heard things aren't good in the camp again. Players upset with Keogh, and even sessions being cancelled due to lack of numbers.

    I should add that I am only getting this second or third hand.

    Apologies, I didn't realize that I had to cite sources on an internet forum. I stated that this is what I had heard, in response to the question posed.

    Wouldn't be any suprise should this be true, Shannon really struggled for numbers at the end of last yr, eoin cahill close to walking away which says a lot in itself.

    Alot of clubs seem to have picked up a few players from Shannon. I'd say they'll struggle this year.

    To be fair,they've been doing it to clubs for years so there won't be too many outside of Shannon burning a candle for them!

  21. #2570
    No sessions have been cancelled!Just have a look at the players that played to keep Shannon up last year,and review with 20 20 hindsight vision!

    Fact - Eoin had a substsntial offer from a Junior club to be player/coach, so would mean putting boots on again. Did not take it.

    What age was Coughlan when he got a contract?

    I think it's unfair to put up 'Here say' about a club when you are not even sure about the statement.

    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

    Seem to be in a bit of dissaray at the moment, and there are a few players dis-enchanted with the set-up.
    I stress that is what I have heard from a few sources.
    Point on Penney
    "Such that our stock had fallen, I'm happy that we've made a QF, as it means good news for season ticket renewals, which contributes to keeping the whole show on the road (as you well know). After that, it's about performance, and I'm pleased more and more of the Munster forward power has come back into how we play. Everything after that is and hopefully will be, a pleasant surprise."

    Keogh's position must be untenable at this stage, nearly got us relegated last season, and shocking result to the start of the league campaign against our rivals
