A Solution to our back 3 problems at least for the rest of the season. If we all chip in for money for the flight to Knock and take turns putting him up, feeding him and the odd pint here and there it won't cost Connacht a penny. Pro14 and Challenge cup finals anyone ?

He’d be a decent replacement for Sevu Reece anyways

Any rumors at all of players coming in?

Thought there might be mutterings at the match Saturday but didn't hear a thing. Might be some news at the end of next week to help the season ticket renewals hopefully.

Why would McGrath exchange the bench at the RDS for the bench at the Sportsground?

Sad and all as it is to see what’s going on in Wales but surely a chance to nick a few decent players, wouldn’t say no to Johnny mcnicholl replacing kelleher

Will probably stay in Wales or be picked up by one of the English clubs.
Clayton Blommetjies wouldn't be a bad option and will probably be on the way out.

Hanno Dirksen would be a good buy.

If we assume we sign Fitzgerald to replace Kelleher, and promote de Buitlear to replace the departed Scholes, then we do have a NIE/NIQ squad place (for the never-arrived Reece) but I can't see using it on an injury-prone Welsh qualified player.

More relevant question might be which Ospreys/Scarlets players are Irish qualified (Angus O'Brien, for instance)?

Callum Sheedy looked really good for Bristol at the weekend and I understand that he's been good all season in the times that Mads has been out. However we'd need some backing from the IRFU as I imagine he's on a decent amount already, but as he's not capped yet he wouldn't be on top bracket. Especially if there is a possibility of Carty being called up for world cup, another fly half would be really good (even if Godwin was good at the weekend, not sure that's a permanent move for him)

That's a pity but one for the IRFU to monitor.
