Re: Dragons Away, 19th Feb, 7.35pm

You'd wonder what the position is with Dev. Not used in the last two games. It will be about 6 weeks between games. a player has been absent due to covid. Unlikely I think but possible. No sign of Dev at traiinng on 25th Jan Dev was training last Thursday Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk

Re: Irish Depth Chart 2020-21

Thanks as ever rtb. What do people see as the plan for Ciaran Frawley? Is he going to be a competitor for 10, or is he going to be a second 5/8 type at 12?

Re: Tighthead Prop going forward

Was a poor u20s side from memory. Exactly what I was thinking. We have only got two players born in 1997 in our squad - Frawley and Larmour. Not a single forward. I think we've got nine from 1996 - James Ryan, Andrew Porter, Max Deegan, Will Connors, Vahk Abdeladze, Hugo Keenan, Jimmy O'Brien, Cono...

Touch wood, Church will get his 100th cap in Paris on the 31st. Pity his family and friends won't be there to see him lead the team out.

Re: A whiff of Cordite

Thornley's latest offering begins with "the contrasting 7 & 5 day turnarounds" that leinster and munster have ahead of Friday night - we should assume that maths wasn't one of gerry's stronger subjects in school.
