      Usual question for A games... "is it on TV?"

        Doubt that many of the "Horseshow Bor" crowd will be making the excursion out to Tallaght, hard enough to get them to cross the liffey to Croker... Bit daft not playing this in their RDS backyard.

          On the contrary I think its a great idea. Tallaghthas a huge population and a massive rugby club. This game is targetting new fans and hopefully new players in the future.

            This is it - leinster have done a great job making the game more family friendly in the area and I'd say the irfu want to spread it around as much as possible - they'll always have a solid base in south dublin and limerick so why not branch out a bit!
            The system is dead! Long live the process!

              could be very beneficial for Leinster rugby to get a whole bunch of hard as F*ck new blood into rugby. Was'nt the working class players what limerick and munster rugby was built on?


              btw no insult intended it's genuinely impressive the work that has been done with Tallaght RFC and I'm very glad they have been rewarded with an International game.

                    On the contrary after the Fiji match, I hadloads ofenquiries about getting tickets from people in the Ho Show who know I'm involved in the club.


                    They played an A game in the RDS last season against Scotland and there was feck all there. Personally I think the IRFU should be applauded for thinking outside the box on this one. An 'A' game in D4 is just another game, an 'A' game in Tallaght is an event. Hopefully the locals will come out to support it, they've put 150 free tickets into the schools so that's a good start.


                    And since it's not on TV (for shame RTE) hopefully people will make the trip out. It's only a tenner in (fiver for kids) and it's only a five minute walk from the Luas stop.

                        Given Henry and Ryan are cannon fodder for the seniors for the first half of the week:


                        15-Jones, 14-Murphy, 13-McFadden, 12-Matthews, 11-Dowling, 10-Keatley, 9-Boss, 8-Henry, 7-Ronan, 6-Muldoon, 5-Caldwell, 4-O'Driscoll, 3-Ross, 2-Fogarty, 1-Wilkinson

                          Not sure about that. Is Ryan there for second row or Flanker? Seems
                          to me O'Brien and McLaughlin are covering for Leamy on the seniors
                          and one of them, likely Mclaughlin, will play six. O'Driscoll will captain.
                          Where's Best? Gone back to Northampton? Still not convinced Leamy
                          won't be pulled before the end of the week.

                            No Bob Casey, No Neil Best ?

                              Cant see Leamy making the 1st squad. It would be a great
                              recovery but would be risky too have a sub not a 100% fit.
                              Too big a risk of him coming on and having too be replaced
                              again.

                              O'Brien should sub better impact player than McLoughlin

                              Cant understand why Fionn Carr isnt in the squad. Great
                              talent could really benefit from being in that environment
                              for long term.

                              I wouldnt have Mick ODriscoll there. He won't be getting on
                              the 1st 15 ahead of Casey or Cullen. If thats the case then
                              we should give a chance to Ryan for the 2nds
