      it is strange seeing him in the Munster colors. I have a feeling that he and De Allende are the last big money NIQ signings that we'll be seeing for any of the provinces in the near future. They were in the works prior to Covid and the landscape changing. I just don't see the IRFU going for any big time names in the next few seasons.

        Private money is paying for him apparently, just as private money has helped to pay some Leinster salaries (and I think Ulster have had some backing of that kind too), so it’s not necessarily down to what the IRFU can afford.

        If these lads help us get back to the top of the European pile, it may result in more signings of that kind in the future.

          Crikey, he looks great in the slowmo run (2.16). I know everyone looks better in slowmo (well I do anyway), but he looks unstoppable.

          I wonder who's lifting him in the lineout? Better get the five of them on the Weetabix!

            Hasn’t really worked out for him since he left. Got a couple of cup games for Leicester and spent some time playing club rugby in Australia. Has been playing championship rugby for the lady couple of years with limited success. Was released by Ealing Trailfinders and has signed up with Doncaster.

I recall a few games where the superior fitness and speed triumphed over doughty opponents, and indeed others where we raced into a bit of a lead and got dragged back as the sheer bulk of the opposition counted. The key point is that rather than facing an AIL side with a few academy players in your own and the opposition sides- you are preparing as an elite team to face whatever the opposition is- and the Ealings etc Of this world have some decent players .
              I try not to over complicate this. I’d like to see our fringe players

              1. Playing as regularly as possible (preferably with other Munster players)
              2. Playing to the highest standard possible

              If the B&I cup could be properly reconstituted as a genuine “second 23” competition as it used to be then it ticks both boxes.

              Fringe players get to play regularly with other senior/academy players at a standard above the AIL.

                All relative though. The definition of "big money" is going to change too.

                    Didn't Contepomi rubbish those reports during the week?

                        Crikers, he would add a hell of a lot

                          They have 46 players signed up for next season. 47 if Kearney sticks around for another year. The other provinces all have 43. Do Leinster really need another signing?

                              Another back row then maybe.
                              They look a bit light there.

                                I think Conan and Leavy are good enough additions for the next season. If anywhere is needed its backup prop and utility back.
