I thought Griffin was out of contract too at the end of the Season,I thought he would be a candidate to be set loose, in favor of a less injury prone, up and coming option. Maybe an IQ recruit from the championship.

He is. I think throughout the season we've gotten a good idea of who Keane does and doesn't rate. Griffin has played 15 times, I wouldn't put him into the latter category with the likes of Scholes, Ili, Deegan, Crosbie, Cooney etc. who can't get a look in.

I'm trying to think who might be available, off the top of my head:

Darren Cave
David Johnston
Tom Daly
Brendan Macken
Eamon Sheridan
Piers O'Connor (don't know anything about him found him on Connachta's list)

With Godwin Griffin and Ronaldson (not that much injured this season) + Aki/Farrell + a utility-back straight in for Ili (13/14), we'd have 5 and a half centres on a 43-44-man-squad. That's enough IMO

Put money on a real top-quality 10 and Connacht will be brillant again

Sheridan doesn't start any game with 12th club of French 2nd Tier rugby (Carcassonne) ....
And O'Connor signed with Pat Lam

Not a fan of Kelleher but K.K seems to be. Others would think the same for Griffin/Ronaldson.
Good overall to consolidate squad options IMO

Out Half signed from Oz


Has played pretty much all his super rugby at 12 and his NPC one season at 12 and one at 13, but his club/underage rugby was at 10 and that's clearly where he sees himself. With this lad and Craig being 10/12s, and Bundee in the mix for 12 too, I'd be fairly certain Godwin will be at 13 next year. Squad is really starting to come together.

That's a few back up 10's now cos Godwin was 10 underage and with Perth Spirit.

Looking forward to some Super influences in the days head (see what I did there?!....i'll get my coat...)

One more scrumhalf and a back 3 player and that's probably our backs finalised.

Saw something on his Twitter account suggesting he's going to BOP, assume it's Bay of Plenty Steamers...

Right after Super Rugby. Except if their clubs make the final they should be ready for early September!
