    Ulster would rather go to another Irish team than Racing again too. The formbook is less of a thing in games like this I think.

At the moment he looks the complete midfielder and is only getting better.
      And he didn't get picked for the Lions tour 18 months ago.

        There's no reason Deegan can't overtake Conan at Leinster - I think he has more talent.

          He also has to watch out that Doris doesn't overtake him

            does that rule apply to Munster ? We have often played more than two.

            Is is this why cloete was left out of squad does this only apply in Europe ?
            Overseas ruling only applies to Aussies and Kiwis (Canadians too I think)

            Saffers and South Sea Islanders are excluded

            THe exclusion of the Saffers is a bit of an anomally, Gibson-Park was complaining that it is wasn't quite balanced just last week.

              Maybe not as powerful?

                Conan just doesnt seem to have that X factor (to my wallabluffer eye).

                Christmas was supposed to be the day he put down a marker against CJ and he was resoundingly invisible.

                He just seems a small bit of a flat track bully, he hasn't shown up with big plays against the top sides or Test sides, bar minnows. He's 26 now and has 80 odd caps for Leinster, you'd think if he had a big of scumbag in him it would have bubbled to the surface by now like

                  I'm a bit of a fan but the idea that he might threaten CJs place is now gone.

                  He is very powerful and very quick and I think he will keep his place even with (possibly) SOB and Deegan and Doris breathing down his neck. Might make the Irish bench for a game or two

                    It certainly is a wonderful issue for Leinster having Deegan and Doris both not making the team, I think ppl forget how big a player Deegan was in that RWC, I’d love to see more of him, sure he looks like he needs another year of training but he does have a big frame and is the most talented of any of them in terms of handling. Haven’t seen any of Doris but the hype is big so he must be v good.

                    With Leavy Sob Vdf Conan Ruddock Fardy Deegan Doris Penny Murphy Connors plus whatever new starlet there is from the senior schools cup coming through you’d wonder how long they can keep them all happy. Even with Sob injured and Fardy as a lock Deegan and Doris can’t even make the squad for the big games.

                          IMHO Ruddock and Conan are similar in that they’re both good players who perform well at club level and can do a job for Ireland but aren’t up there at the level of POM, CJ and SOB.

                          Doris and Deegan may get there. If either of them are to leave for gamtime I’d like to see Doris go home to Connacht.

                              Excellent finish from O’Loughlin.

                                Rob side stepped and made a show of out on the wing by a back row, resulting in a Scarlets try.

                                Merciful hour!!!
