Jamie Hagan currently playing a game with Beziers. It's been a long time...
32 next month, good to see he can finish his career starting games again :)

Talking about ex-TH, Newcastle is going to be dropped out of Premiership despite 3 wins in a row. Carey's leaving. Don't you think we could bring Rodney back as 3rd/2nd choice behind Bealham (who's not busy by many caps so available most of the time) and competing with McCoy?
31, he has 2 years left in the tank...

From Falcons, Brett Connon is an IQ fly-half/FB I'd like to be signed ASAP too, with Carty going to be Irish-bound for the next 4 years IMO (Sexton retirement)..

Are you taking the p*ss Connachta? Getting rid of Rodney was one of the best bits of business we’ve done in the last few years.

Robb has come back in contention recently, good to see.
It's him or Daly for next year. Exactly the same ball-carrying 12 profile.
Daly is slightly less injury-prone, Robb better tackler IMO
The next 4 games will be decisive for their battle.

It's a shame we didn't see more of him. Seems to me that Keane was a big proponent on commitment to the team, it was pretty clear early on that Ahki wasn't staying beyond the year and as a result Keane didn't really play him unless he had to.

Robbie Henshaw v Pita Ahki at 12 on Sunday.
A lad we tried so hard to hold on to versus a lad we didn't really seem to want for some reason ...

Wonder would Ahki have stayed if Friend had been in charge.

Keeping Henshaw would have cost us zero on a central contract. Keeping Ahki would have cost us the thick end of a quarter million per season (average Top 14 wage is ~200k p/a). Was never going to happen once Toulouse made eyes at him.

Fair point, but signing him and not using him probably won't go down as our greatest piece of business. It will be an interesting matchup anyway.

Very true, but strange we didn't seem to try make more use of him when he was here.

I seem to remember KK had little interest in giving game time to lads he knew weren't going to be with the team the next season.
