The Deegan rumors are a couple of weeks old since he was named in the western forces squad

I knew Deegan was a bit of a gamble but I had high hopes for him. Seems he never did it for Keane as sure didn't KK name squads with no outhalf cover on the bench rather than include him. From a senior squad perspective he won't be missed so may as well release him so he can play elsewhere.

Glad Matt is on for another couple of years. He's back to his pre-hand injury form, looking forward to many more tries from him.

He never suited Munster's game and if he can stay fit I think he could be a top player for us.
Probably the best wheels of any backrow in the country, you give him space and he's gone.

The best Irish backrow available this summer (with Murphy gone to Ulster) so I'm not sure why people aren't more excited by this.


Fully agree, if he stays fit he's a monster.
He was the Tadgh Beirne of Cardiff before his fundamental error in signing for Munster, when he could have come to us played in a team that would have complimented is skills, and won a Pro12 medal instead..

He's an absolute unit, so he'll offer us the durability that Big George did in covering second row as well if we're short at any point.
But I do hope he's being looked at as primarily an eight, he's quick and has great hands...

Yep don't know what we didn't see about Deegan that prompted Keane to ignore him, I wouldn't judge a ten harshly from Eagles performances give how weak/inexperienced the teams we put out are most weeks.

Hope the Western Force project works out for them, they're politically/geographically and sports-wise on the periphery out in WA, so it's important that there is a major Union presence and not just cede the territory to Rules/League/Cricket..

Have to agree, I see this as a great signing. I'd really like to see Mark Flanagan signing from Saracens (Not sure but I think he may be out of contract in the summer). He's a quality experienced lock and is IQ. Keep's NIQ slots open for 10, 12, 2 and a quality back three.

Narbonne down to 3rd tier rugby. We have NIQ spots.
What about Tuculet brother, 24, as a utility winger, maybe more..

No I admit I just loved the input of the older brother with Cardiff, and would love to have a first Pumas playing for Connacht

Godwin was dropped for the Sharks game with Lealiifano shifting to 12.

Thought that was harsh, Godwin was good last week and Lealifano was rubbish.
