JGP qualifies in June
I’d say Knox will be in the senior team next year, he looks some player, absolute beast

Nope
Leinster : Tomane, Lowe, Fardy
Munster : Botha, Knox, More

Honors even and I think they are eyeing up Alby. Anyway the unofficial rule is supposed to be 4 + 1 so as long as we’re within that who cares.

They also haven't signed anyone.

He's gotten awfully fond of that brick

Leo on Fardy
“Scott has made an amazing impact since he has come in,” the Leinster head coach continued. “It feels like he has been here a long time, certainly longer than the 18 months.

We encouraged him to bring ideas, bring his thoughts to the party and he’s not shy on giving his opinion which is a positive for us. He has had a great impact on the field but also off the field as well. He’s a great influence around the dressing room and around our team meeting environment.

“He’s a great competitor for us and adds to so many different facets to our game, the way we’re trying to play and the experience he has built up. It’s great news that he has decided to sign on again as he’s had plenty of interest I’m sure because lots of people see the impact he has made here.”

Scott was spotted today in Parnell Park for the Dublin v Wexford hurling match. Wearing a Wexford jersey no less. Tadhg was with him of course.

Thanks big guy, glad you passed our way. Scott fits nicely into the Rocky, Thorn, Hines class of imported forwards

What a privilege to watch that chap play for my team, guys like him willing to put in shifts in matches that nobody else cares about, in a league that nobody else cares about is what has helped propel us to where we are today, where we can rotate in lads considered third or fourth choice and the standard doesn’t drop because a guy like Fardy wouldn’t let it drop. Great player, always spoke well in interviews, a guy who seemed to understand his role in the greater environment and someone who was going to enjoy his adventure as much as he could.

But could he do it on a rainy Winter night in Treviso, f%~k yeah he could. It was his bread and butter! He bought into everything and that’s why we love him. All the best Fards.

He has been an absolutely brilliant player and a great leader for us. Right up there in the top rank of players to have played for Leinster. He seems like a great guy, and I am certain that he has added an awful lot to the team and to the wider environment.

Thanks a million and the very best with the next step in life.

I’ve said it in other threads he’s been a legend for us and continues the amazing tradition of bringing in Southern Hemisphere players who have not only done their talking on the pitch but brought so much more off it. I really am gutted his time is coming to an end. I wish him and his family the very best at the end of this season on their next chapter - I know he has given me and mine very fond memories for the blue of leinster

:clap: Fardy has been a great signing and a great leader
But the standout quality he gave us was confidence.
Good luck mate. Gud on yer. :clap:

What an amazing addition he was to our team and its ethos. I remember when we'd play against Oz and he'd been playing blindside and I used to spew such profanities in his direction; the air in the living room would become acrid so great was the vitriol poured upon him. When he signed for us and it was lovely to experience first-hand what he did for his team. He'd easily be one of your first names on a team sheet EVERY TIME. He always brought his A game, but not only that he made sure the others in the pack did too. Thank you Scott so frickin' much, you complete and utter legend.
This is the way

GF watching her first Leinster game a couple of years ago;

GF: Who's that chap with the beard?
Me: That's Scott Fardy
GF: He's so annoying to that other team
Me: He sure is
GF: Can he do that?
Me: Probably not
GF: He's like a Dad play wrestling with his kids
Me: He sure is

Every subsequent Leinster game;
GF: Is Scott Fardy playing?
Me: Yep
GF: Is he at it again?
Me: He sure is

Leinster legend. Thank you Scott!
I'll die before I surrender, Tim.

One of our best signings, up there with Nathan Hines. I remember after the 2018 European Cup win Tadhg Furlong described him as 'very Australian.' He seemed to mean it in the best possible way!

Mr Niggle - hats off to you Scott, been a fantastic signing and always loved when he was involved.

Incredibly robust too and never seemed to give anything but 100% even away to the Dragons.....

No doubt the likes of Ryan, Molony, Baird etc have learned a few dark arts from him too :happy clapper: :happy clapper:

Another master signing from Leinster.
A player who always gives everything if Zebre away in January or a Heineken final in Bilbao.
love the photo of himself, Ryan and Conan trying to block the last kick drop goal .
The photo just highlights the utter determination to make the block by all 3 of them.
Thanks for some great memories

Clean niggle, the kind you can really appreciate.

He was a key part of the Pocock, Hooper, Fardy backrow. I thought it was a clever way to balance the backrow to get those 2 on the pitch rather than put them both sides the scrum.
