      And he's a rarity among Irish back three players who can tackle. Never shirks a tackle on a bigger man.
      He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

        The fact that people think Conway can hold a candle to Rob's good looks is laughable

          That’s the real reason he left Leinster

            Why would he do that when Bobert was (and still is ) ensconced in the No 15 shirt?
            Ha! I'll defer to Munsterboy on that one.
            Tis but a scratch.

              The fact they allowed him to leave and instead kept Fergalicious, Daverage and co instead still boggles my mind.

                Who will we see this week? Best will get a chance to redeem himself surely. POM should have a rest.

                Healy Best Furlong Kleyn Ryan Ruddock VDF CJ Murray Sexton Earls Henshaw Ringrose Larmour Kearney is who I'd guess. Id go with Conway @15 but Rob will surely play, he needs a good game, ppl cant keep turning a blind eye to his wasting of good ball, his turning over of the ball and his non tackles where he turns his back to the ball carrier.

                  Conway got impatient at Leinster and decided to leave of his own volition. He made 42 appearances (23 in his last season - starting both finals) for them and was only 21 when he left. I'm fairly certain that Luke Fitzgerald is the only player who'd played more often for Leinster by that age.

                    Ringrose might sit this one out. He's been involved in the other three matches.

                      Hasn't he also previously called himself a 'Lunster'? His dad being from Munster and he said he had been to plenty of Munster matches over the years.

                        I understand that retiring the 15 jersey is being considered, and possibly even playing without a FB- in part as a celebration of the contribution he has been making recently.

                          He's as tough as a coffin nail. Tomas O'Leary tough

                            Did he not decide to leave when he heard Nacewa was coming back?
