        Ah... Am on an ipad at the moment and they don't do formatting...

        Still can't see Zebo et al on that list though... Will look at it on a computer.

          Fixed the formatting problems..

          Downey and Hurley do not have contracts at Munster for next season so are not currently included.

            Hurley doesn't have a contract?! Jeez, time to sort that out surely.

              Good list. Strong squad too. The only glaring weaknesses really appear to be exactly what our current problems are too.
              Lack of a quality backup 9 and the centre situation.
              I think Cotter is mostly loosehead these days, even though he started as tight head.
              We have ridiculous depth in the back three.

              Roger Roger. What's our vector, Victor?

                Downey not being offered a contract and is looking at France and Japan. Hurley in negotiations (not 100% on the latter)

                  Any word on a new centre? Have been a few rumours that a 10/12 has been approached in the super 15. The academy intake should be announced within the next month as well. Would imagine goggin and abbot are nailed on. A few of u19s Mcmahon, McNulty, and Fitzgerald will be close as well.

                    We were looking at Aki, who went to Connacht instead and who apparently is a competent 12, and has played well in super Rugby with Chiefs. Heard his connections with Clarke at Chiefs and 'a better deal' swung it.

                      We're signing Martin Kelly, the DUFC tighthead, on a development contract for next season. Will be switching to a Limerick club. Has featured for Leinster A a couple of times in the B&I Cup.

                        Seen Kelly play several times. Huge man and I'd say he is about 20 stone. Good signing on a development deal I reckon. He is a technically very good scrummager who always seems to get upper hand on his opposite man. From what I hear Leinster were after him aswell after some very good performances for Leinster A. Although he is playing at 1B standard you can still see a lot of potential that Axel, BJ etc can work with. Check out this highlight video below.

                          Considering the paucity of players coming through at centre and the glut of back three players in the Academy currently would it be advisable to repurpose some of the back three players who are in the Academy?
                          Saw Stephen Fitzgerald play a few times and looks like a player who could prosper at outside centre. Haven't seen Wooton but he's a sizable lump by all accounts. Sweetnam seems to have great ball skills and game awareness whenever I've seen him play, could he operate as a second five-eight?

                            Harry McNulty has been released by Munster. So I reckon Dan Goggin will be brought in and they possibly see Steve McMahon as a 13.

                              Good to see a new tight head signed if the rumours are true. Kelly is young still for a tight head prop and looks a decent prospect.
