Anyway, whatever the precise day, the main point is : YES he can be selected for November tests :woohoo: That's what you implied, no?


Yep. You'd hope to see him in the Wolfhounds squad at the very least.

We did actually have prop Fabien Boiroux about 10 years ago. I think he came from Montferrand at the time.

I was thinking this morning : If Muldowney continues like that, don't you think he could be Scottish 3rd choice after Gray and Hamilton? Scots haven't much depth for locks, and I wonder if his contract with Connacht force him to remain IQ

You bet your backside it does. All contracts are actually with the IRFU rather than the individual branch.

Getting a bit ahead of yourself there? I know he had a good game at the weekend but he would still be behind Glasgow's Al Kellock, Johnny Gray, Tim Swinson and after that utility options like Rob Harley, Josh Strauss and possibly by the six nations the up and coming Andy Redmayne.

Of course if Muldowney can put in another impressive performance at the coming weekend and keep any and all of the above quiet, then he could become of interest to the Scots.

They can't stop anyone playing international though. Not even Mourad Boudjellal can do that.

i watched the game at the weekend, he definitely played like he had his eye on the plane to Ireland, i.e was'nt going full speed in attack or defence apart from the short video clip. His right leg was heavily strapped for the game, hopefully that's just precautionary. I would'nt be surprise if he had been released already.

Agree his ITM season hasn't been inspirational but doubt if he'll be released early. Mathematically they can still qualify for playoffs but highly unlikely. Otherwise his last game is Oct12th - less than 3 weeks away.
Although a little further up table Auckland's Tom McCartney is also unlikely to feature in playoffs. He's been playing 90 mins for most of the games. He played very little Super rugby this year - Played in the Singapore 10's tournament in June. - so his season hasn't as long as Bundees.

Danie Poolman qualifies next summer, too near the worldcup for him unfortunately.

We seem to have reversed the numbers from a few years ago, it's now 2 NIQ and 5 projects. Pretty impressive when you think about it.
