    I believe he is the first Irishman to ever play in that league

        Anyone any input on Zebo's next move. He has had a bit more Munster related social media stuff in the last week linked to fans asking him to come back...
        My feeling is he has a decision to make regarding staying at Racing, difficult to say if Munster is an option for him though

          We have a few good young players coming through in the backs, Nash, Daly, Liam Coombes. Who probably could do with some more game time. Also think Haley has also been solid this year.

          Having said that if Zebo is available at the right wage, couldn’t see us not going for him. He is still our record try scorer, and is a bit special. Heard we’re linked with a Saracens lad Gallagher at FB as well, similar to Haley IQ. Don’t know much about him. Could also be bull.
          "The PRO12 is our domestic league, it's what you earn your bread and butter from; it's what pays the bills. We need to broaden our emphasis and get an understanding in Irish rugby that the domestic league from now on is most important and that's what qualifies you now for Europe.'' Garrett Fitzgerald, CEO Munster

            Heard a rumour that he's ‘off foreign’ - more foreign than France
            "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

            Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

              There's no point in bringing zebo back to Munster at this stage. 30 years old, looking like French food agrees with him and Munster don't have a shortage of speedy backs who need to get senior minutes.

                Talks today of him going going to New York and playing in Major League Rugby apparently. Wouldn't be surprised. Cant see him coming back to us

                He would be a marquee signing for the league and im sure he would be well looked after too

                  That news makes a lot of sense. To me it looks like he is on the move and putting out the feelers. With Munsters signings next year and the age Zebo is it would be a difficult signing to justify , then again he is our record signing with star factor like no one else.

                    Zebo's move further abroad, as opposed to home, starting to look increasingly likely.

                        Still no room on the list for poor oul' James Hart - did he spill your pint or something?

                        Also, there are a few numbers repeated/out of order:
                        22 Shane Buckley Ealing Trail Finders UK

                          Numbering tidied up and James Harte, (I have forgiven the pint incident by now) added to the list of maybe/maybe-nots.
                          Given that Keatley is on the list is there an argument to be made for others, including perhaps Grobelaar, Mafi, Saili, maybe even Jed Holloway?
                          Perhaps there's a case to be made to include others who we've let go, but I don't think letting Harte go constitutes a missed opportunity for either party.
                          I have, entirely subjectively, only included Keats in the list (a bit like Conway, he always seems to me to be a naturalised Munster man), we could have done with him this season, and I cant help thinking he'll turn out to be valuable to any club on an ongoing basis, I bet he ends up running someone's academy.
                          Im open to other suggestions?

                          ps. Who'd have thought there'd ever be 10 (at least) Munster men playing pro rugby in the USA?

                                In the Pro2 team of the week this week. Playing regularly at 7 and seems to be going well. Billy Scannell (brother of Niall and Rory) came off the bench for his debut
