Frawley/ Hawkshaw 12/ 13 with Osborne at 15?

Or Frawley/ Osborne 12/13 keeping O'Rielly at 15 another possibility
He's gotten awfully fond of that brick

I know Turner was replaced early in the second half but didn't notice that he was injured.

was replaced at that time due to a shoulder injury.

2nd game in a row for him to go off injured with a shoulder issue.

Moloney has to feel worried about another contract considering his considerable issues with injury and competition in back row.

youd assume he will get his 3rd year in the academy.

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.

Isn’t that what happened to Beirne, had the potential but was always injured

Dragons currently playing Connacht on TG4. Assume it'll be a similar Dragons side to the one we'll face in a couple of weeks.
Look out Itchy, he's Irish

Ed Byrne and Jack Conan with the Ireland squad now, anybody know if we will be getting players back for the dragons game or will that cause an issue with bubbles etc.

Coombes has gone back to Munster (having been called up as cover) so I would understand from that that we could see players being released on non 6N weekends.

Not good news for the academy lads looking for game time. Which players do you think will be released?

You'll bury the dragons if their recent form is anything to go by, aside from their driving line out they offered next to nothing vs Connacht

Roberts has been their stand out player this season and it's odds on he will get a call up to the welsh squad now

I would say that If Davies and Williams are fit they are decent half backs and Hewitt has pace on the wing but the forwards especially the front 5 have struggled in the scrum and seem to be under powered at the breakdown and in contact this season

Not sure if either of their first choice flankers will be fit (basham/griffithis) if they are then they are both very good if not then leavy will dominate the breakdown.

I'd fully expect not just a leinster win but a leinster bp from this game

Hopefully Tommy O’Brien will be back for this one.

He looked very good before his injury. Ankles are notoriously unpredictable injuries to heal and they tend to reoccur.

Let’s hope we see Tommy sooner rather than later.
