Dan Kelly came off the bench on 59 mins in Leicester Tiger's win against Sale today which saw three Red cards. Johnny McPhillips also benched for Tigers. Good to see Kelly at this level, although he came on at wing rather than centre.

SOB was brilliant for LI today as they came back from a 6-34 deficit to eventually draw the game against Bristol. Oh how I miss him.

Jack Regan makes his Super Rugby competitive debut for the Highlanders against the Crusaders on Friday

Eventful debut! Good for him. Must have been an amazing buzz.

Adeolokun came on for Bristol early in the 2nd half today. I'd forgotten he'd gone there.

Didn’t see today but notice he was in starting at 12. He did rightly last week when came in.

Another SO'B contribution for the London Irish cause for 60 minutes. Watching Will Connors v Italy and comparing his performance with the snippets of SO'B on BT, you'd certainly hope that Will would develop the physicality that is still evident when SO'B is in carrying mode. Awesome!

Saw him play a few times in the Mitre 10 cup last year and he was brilliant. Always good for making a couple of yards in contact and a good defender.

I saw him play in an Irish Youths vs Irish Schools game a good few years ago between Christmas and New Years in Ashbourne – definitely thought he had the makings of a Leinster player at the time.

It strikes me that there have been quite a few forwards who have been let go by various provinces or provincial academies or sub-academies who have ended up going down to NZ and prospering: Oli Jaeger, Conan O'Donnell, Gavin Thornbury and now Jack Regan. Harry Brewer played for Manawatu before heading to Japan to play for the Docomo Hurricanes too.
