I see Cormac Daly in the training pics. Did Cormac not move to Connacht ? To be fair I haven't kept up whether he's played AIL last season? He was always a 'big unit''; looks even bigger. Another second row option?

Two spells at Connacht - once in their academy and then a short term deal in October 2020. He had a spell at RUNY in MLR as well.

He played for Clontarf last season, both at blindside and in the second row, and was MOTM in the AIL final as a No6. Always struck me as a good fit for Connacht, never understood why they let him go in the first place. A tough, hard-headed player who has good size and very reasonable athleticism.

I'd like to praise Leinster for a commendable lack of marketing gibberish around the new jersey launch - it says what it is, what it looks like, and how it's made.

I am keen to see Jason Jenkins out there. He needs a Leinster pre-season more than anybody else in the squad. His last match was 03 June, which is more than six weeks ago now.
Probably injured!

Amen brother. They have got a hell of a lot right with that jersey and that release.

This was originally in jest but I see a photo of him and it looks like he has a broken finger!

Jenkins is doing gym work which is good to see. He needs a full pre-season with our S&C guys.

Good to see Cormac Foley & Harry training too.

Nice Ngatai highlights reel.

We're certainly getting a powerful centre with a big boot and a good kicking game.

He'll be a very useful extra carrier against bigger sides. Himself & Lowe in the backline gives a lot of power.
