    Excellent player, it would be hard to believe if we hadnt made an offer for such a player.

        Well, while a big name signing would be nice, surely one of the
        Academy players like Doyle must be nearly ready for the step up?
        Gaffney capped him 2 seasons ago, but Kidney seems less 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

          Of what we have available now, I would readily play Doyle at 12 for the rest of the ML.

              Anyone know how he's going for Garryowen (LLCoolJ I'm looking at
              you), I know he scored 2 tries against Clonakilty over the weekend but
              overall how's his season going?

                  Can't see Kidney playing Doyle there for the rest of the season, he doesn't seem to have any interest in him.


                  I'd like to see Warwick tried there next season.

                    Any sense in playing Hickey there if ROG is at 10? He seems to have a fair break, and if he has a weakness it seems to be the speed of his kicking.


                    He might learn a fair bit, or develop in to a good 2nd 5/8.

                        That's whatI was wondering! how could Munster lose out to Worcester??? This is not good, he would have been perfect for us -decent hands, always gets over the gain-line and lots of guts...

                          Quick pair of hands and a good eye for a gap. He doesn't have the kicking ability to be a top class outhalf but he sure can get his backline moving. That's why I would like to see him tried at 12.

                            He'd be a good kicker at 12 but a bad kicker for a 10, if you see the
                            distinction? Is he big enough to play 12 though?

                              And from those in the know, he played schools rugby with Mafi. Munster should be signing someone by now.
