Any word yet on Bundee going on to a central contract and being given another 2-3 extension with us?

Bundee's contract runs to summer 2020 so we won't hear anything this side of summer.

Heffernan and Niyi have signed contract extensions.
No mention of length.
Great for Heff
Niyi hasn't had many opportunities this season. Is he injured?

Mark mostyn, thank you. Is Luke carty considered a full back now? I think he’s played 10 for the eagles and Buccs this season. He could be needed at ten this week if Conor Fitzgerald isn’t fit

That was the rumour I heard but as you point out he's still playing ten, will change it.

So looks pretty safe to say
Buckley
Delahunt
Cannon
Eoin mckeon
Mitchell
Are all out of contracts.
Possibity that a few players only got a one year contract last season.

Finlay signed a new deal

Suppose Buckley is the most important to keep
Then McKeon, and then Cannon

All depends on whether we have other players lined up.
Can definitely see Cannon moving on, but fear that if McKeon doesn't get a new contract, that might be the end of his professional career

TBF I'd have Mitchell ahead of the other 2. Gallagher/Maksymiew/Claffey can push for 2nd row + lots of IQ abroad. Back-row is full, one of Connolly/McKeon may well have to go

Think he was speaking about Eoin McKeon not Conor

Pau are about to release their 3 IQs

With Dillane/Roux/Thorbury probably busy at time with Ireland in the next months/years, Dave Foley might be an opportunity

Same with one of Dougall/Butler, IMO underated, even if we're well stocked for back-rows..

Connacht can confirm that Conor Carey will leave the province at the end of the season to join Worcester Warriors. Best of luck in the future Conor.
