His availability will certainly help us get through the opening period of the season."In other squad news*Cian Bohane*will undergo a scan tomorrow after sustaining a knee injury on Friday night in Munster's victory against London Irish at the Waterford RSC.

      I hear he's rubbish at opening email attachments which was a big plus for the management.
      "It’s not the team you support, it’s the club you should support. The team on the pitch will ebb and flow because that’s the nature of sport. No team has ever been successful decade on decade. The club has the history and that’s the passion you should have."

            This must be a new record to a nickname?

                        Thought Casey has done well since he got his chance. Hopefully he continues to do so.
