    How's Madigan getting on? Wouldn't mind seeing him ahead of Wyatt, at
    least he'd look interested.
    It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

    Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

      I think if you gave a plastic cone a Munster shirt it would look better then Wyatt.

          good to see bruff(and munster)old boy peter malone there,also good to see andrew thompson get some recognition after all these years.yet again tom cregan is inexplicably left out,although its no secret than him and galwey arent the best of friends.


          surprisingly low number of players from limerick clubs
          g\'wan bruff!!

            agreed on thompson.


            can only imagine he ruled himself last season as he would have been cert to make the side.


            no richie lane !


            if you play senior inter-pro are you ruled out of this ?


            no denis hurley, conan doyle, gerry hurley etc.


            considering the current table standings the selection looks strange !

              well.im pretty sure that at least one if not both of the hurleys have development contracts.


              theres a number of players there who have munster experience,madigan,keeshan,varley,malone and i think rory mcgrath and cogan played in friendlies last year

                  As far as i know Madigan has been injured for the last couple of months-was back playing with Bohs seconds last weekend.


                  \"I am \" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that \"I do \" is the longest sentence?

                    I see Barry Keeshan of Dolphin is included again! A bit of a surprise in my estimation but maybe it shouldn't be.
