Do we know if frawley is actually injured or just out of favour at moment? This is a big season for him to be fair. Is he a ten or a 12? Massive call for him to make. If he's a ten then he might need to move on but I'm hoping he stays. He's a very talented lad but at his age he needs some decent minutes and even when fit he won't be getting a start. Any thoughts?
He has a "niggle" and like others before him its not been announced in the injury report.

Nobody needs to move, with JS and RB away at Ireland camp or maybe JS retiring And HB getting a cap we need to be able to field a team during international windows.
As soon as europe comes around next month, frawley wont even make the squad. Even in the pro 14, will frawley be first choice at 10? No. At 12, maybe if we are resting robbie. At the moment, its tob ahead of him in the 12 shirt. If a player is happy playing second fiddle then fine but if he seriously thinks he can be an international then he needs to get himself some minutes asap.

TOB isn't ahead of him at 12, he is not available for selection.

Why dont they just say hes injured then? Not sure why they only give half the story when it comes to fitness or non selection. I do still think he has a decision on his best position though. When cob is fit he will be our best option after henshaw for me.

Not saying this is the case for Frawley, but it is now the player's call on whether or not Leinster can say if they're injured and how much information they can include.

It’s also their call on revealing COVID related isolation. Another reason to expect players to quietly disappear for a while.

Only 45 minutes until kick-off now. Reposting this for anyone that missed it yesterday.

Match Preview

Leinster earned an impressive win last Monday against a Glasgow team stacked with international backs. They also got another four try bonus point to maintain their record of obtaining maximum points from all four fixtures this season. A number of youngsters stood out like Harry Byrne, Scott Penny and Tommy O'Brien. A special mention needs to go to Jimmy O'Brien who once again filled in at full back with aplomb.

Interesting that we chose to play against the extra man.

I always think penalty try and a yellow card for that kind of thing is ridiculous. Double penalisation. Not convinced Penny pulled it down anyway from the replay.

Ospreys picked a pack to go after us up front and they're managing it so far.

A good test here for the likes of Milne & H Byrne which is what we want.
