He should have gone there in the first place.

He is apparently badly injured according to an interview he gave last week, said he's spending all his time on the watt bike and hadn't done much training on the pitch.

Played for the A's last night, but only mention of him in match report is that he was held up for a try.

Think it's a little early to be declaring the moves a failure especially in Eoin's case if he hasn't been able to train properly. It's a decent change for the two of them so I'd give them most of the season and then make a judgment.

Talking to some Leinster fans who kept an eye on Hagan after he left, he apparently didn't have a great season last year for L.I. No idea about this year but I could see him moving on again after this season to another team (maybe Ulster might take a punt on him?)

Saw hagan a few times on BT last season and he was mullered in the scrums tbh. The silence among the commentators said it all really. Don't think he is going to make it.
LI are playing an irish qualified lad by name of mulchrone at 13 and he's doing well for them. Geraghty is keeping Sheridan out of the team at 12 atm also.

Any faint hopes that Tom McCartneys Auckland had of making ITM cup playoffs disappeared this morning after defeat by Bundee's Counties side. Both players will be free after this weekend.

Unfortunately for us one of them - most likely McCartney - will make the playoffs. Going in to the last fixtures at the weekend the two teams are fighting for the last semi-final place, with Auckland a point ahead and with a home fixture to come.

Thanks Salmson. I thought both duvisions combined for 2 semifinals rather than 4

Counties Manukau win 41-18 against Auckland last night, one of them is heading for the semi-final if i've read the tables correctly. 4 semi-finals means 4th placed team in the ITM Cup Premiership moves on to semi's

Shane Delahunt up-graded to academy contract from Sub-academy.

As a matter of interest does anyone know what's up with Jack Dineen? Is he injured or is Delahunt just playing better?

AND it means Aki won't make the play off for Manukau! We may have him in the Liberty Std!

Look at the highlights of his last match this morning :


Created 2 tries and won the last penalty in a defensive position at the breakdown!
