            Apologies if this is covered elsewhere, but does anyone know if the games will be on tv in the UK?
            O'Gara with the drop at goal, has gone between the posts! Ronan O'Gara, between the posts! After about 145 phases! O'Gara between the posts!

              I have had a look in all the usual places and can't see it covered, it is on TG4 live and repeated on the sunday lunchtime so it will be a case of hunting for links I would think. Not sure I will be up at three in the morning on the off chance I can find a link however, I will have a look on the sunday.

                    Overnight Friday, or Thursday evening US time. Think I read that in the Examiner.

                        Times and Indo have Henshaw and Madigan starting. Their probable starting teams are identical. 1st XV must have been training against others all week.

                        Henshaw
                        McFadden
                        Cave
                        Olding
                        Zebo
                        Madigan
                        Boss

                        Kilcoyne
                        Strauss
                        Ross
                        McCarthy
                        Toner
                        Henderson
                        Henry
                        O'Mahony

                          Starting Ross in this match really is pointless. It's essentially a development tour, if Hagan starts and get's hockeyed then he'll learn from it, if he does well then it's test exposure and a boost for his confidence.......... either way Irish rugby will be in a better place.

                          But NO NO, let's wheel out Ballyhooly's finest again, maybe they think he still needs a bit more test exposure!

                            TG4 are currently advertising that they have a new APP, & saying with the app, that TG4 is available worldwide.

                              Jamie Hagan is missing a tin foil hat.
