Slade confirmed to Pau after their promotion yesterday, doubt we were really in the running as he's getting €500k a year :blink:

I see joe ford is out of contract at sale. I haven't seen much of him in general play but he has a good goal kicking record and is behind cipriani there.
Ben Marshall is also out of contract at leinster. He looked good for 60 minutes yesterday until leinster pressed the self destruct button. very athletic looking.

There was talk of Paddy Butler going to Pau . Not sure if it was ever confirmed. Would be a good addition for us.

Can someone just start making up believable lies....we need something in here :oops:

Season ticket renewals are due a week Sunday, in the past we've announced signings to correspond with things like this, so of there's no word of anything next week it could start to get very worrying :unsure:

Ive seen on another forum that Nikora is off to Zebre. If true that would leave the door open for another out half .


Courage is knowing what lies on the other side and still opening the door.

Injury update ahead of Glasgow makes grim reading:

www.connachtrugby.ie/squad-update-ahead-...game-4/#ConnachtNews

Summary: White confirmed as having surgery so out for season; Roux sustained high ankle sprain against Ulster, requires surgery, and is out for season; Ronaldson's quad injury up to 4 weeks recovery so possibly out for season.

I was told Robbie Henshaw was likely leave soon last night. That'd be a huge blow.

No, he's contracted until the end of next season (summer 2016). His father, who I believe is also his agent, has said he'll decide on his future after the World Cup (i.e. 6 months before end of contract, when most renewals/transfers are done). Let's hope Ben Te'o turns into the second coming of BOD in the meantime ;-)

What I was told is that the IRFU are forcing his hand. If Connacht don't qualify for the Champions Cup it could happen quickly too.

It'd send a terrible message to Connacht, and to the fans and players, if the IRFU forced the issue. A homegrown talent, brought up through the Connacht Academy system and developed through the Senior team, shepherded onto 'better' things by the IRFU as soon as he hits his stride. Would be disgraceful.

This is the same story that comes up every couple of months.
He'll be with Connacht next season

Are there any rumours of signings for next season? With the early bird season ticket renewals up soon you'd think some news would leak out to give people extra incentive to re-sign.
