    Assume McCarthy is the lad without a number who got the last two tries? Two great finishes, reminds me of Earls the way he ducks low and sidesteps to avoid the tackle. Munster look very dangerous off turnover ball from those clips.

    Who's the Ulster 14 though? Ridiculous pass behind the back before the first Munster try.

        Ah right. He always looked decent for the senior team but good luck to him in Scotland.

          So I walked as day was dawning
          Where small birds sang and leaves were falling
          Where we once watched the row boats landing
          By the broad majestic shannon

              Strangely he's declared he is aiming to play for SCO on residency in 3 years. Even we're losing talent.

                why strange? he has no chance of playing for Ireland

                    I think he's a fine player, could well do it.

                    Just strange for me to think our fringe is being targeted. We are supposed to be one of the top sides in the world now after all.

                    If he thinks he's good enough would a few years at Connacht not be a better option? He's already qualified, and if Dave Kearney can start every game in a 6n.......

                      I heard McCarthy got offered a development contract. I wonder who got let go then as a result?

                        I don't know if they've been let go, but O'Dea and Johnne Murphy are out of contract in the summer. Sweetnam is also signed up.

                          Perhaps they were being let go anyway and McCarthy just happened to be good enough to replace them

                            Only one of those 2 was ever going to be kept IMO. LOD's injury history against him, Johne's age might actually help his as he is a few years older than anyone else.

                            If DmC is getting a contract Dineen must be leaving. No harm having some depth at Centre for once.

                              Is McCarthy really being brought in to allow us to let a centre go? AFAIK he has been playing exclusively on the wing in the last 12 months at least

                                I don't know, I've only heard of the chap in the last few weeks.

                                I could see a whole Earls style debate opening up over this.
