Surely they should be looking to stagger their debuts a little, if only for commercial reasons. If Mils' name is on the teamsheet, I'm sure it'll create a surge of ticket purchases, same with Bundee.

I suppose they'll be just back from a 3 week break so not much chance for these guys to get gametime before rounds 3 and 4 of challenge cup (assuming they're on our selected panel for ERCC).

How the feck did D'arcy get in there at 13? Alex Dunbar surely. (off topic sorry)

Conor Gilsenan has played exactly one minute of rugby for London Irish since moving over there (tbf I don't know if he's injured at the moment). It doesn't seem like the move is working out the way he hoped. He's someone we should keep an eye and try and get back when his contract expires.

Wonder if Griffin could end up at munster yet after all. They are supposed to be looking at loan options for centre due to long term injuries to bylendaal, Earls, goggin and Bohane.
