Bundee is spotted in the latest Connacht Instagram story, so he's around at least.
I'd still rest him until Ulster personally

I would expect Bundee to start in the RDS alongside Tom Farrell. I would then expect to see Kyle Godwin replace Bundee for the Ulster game and finally for Bundee and Kyle to face Munster.

Our SOB not theirs...
Copeland looks fit though
Butler/Copeland/Fainga'a + Masterson and Connolly, I'm not worried yet

Yes, I meant more so from his point of view as he’s had a great season and would have had a chance to impress Andy Farrell in the Interpros. We have the depth to manage.

As I said before, not good enough :D

No I'm kidding, that's right I forget about him all the time, he imposed himself as a regular starter so so fast it's just amazing!

Reading through the Leinster team, I was feeling quite confident until I got to 5-6-7...

This is pretty much our strongest team. Would prefer if we held our fire for Ulster and Munster. Anyhow we might win this one :) . Gents see you post match for a beer in the Bridge.

Leinster's team still looks strong. Fardy is the glue that holds the team together when the big names are missing and lads like Ruddock have huge experience. Leavy is a class apart for me. Even with the inexperience in certain areas the team Leinster have out is strong and playing with confidence. Having seen how well some of these Leinster lads played v Ospreys & Dragons they are well able for this level. O'Brien at 12 in particular has hugely impressed me.

Having said that we are on a decent run and that's a strong side we've out. Bundee could be a trump card off the bench if we are still in contention. We've mixed and matched fairly well in Europe so hopefully that should stand us in good stead in the interpros. Matt Healy is a loss for me though. Leader has done fine in recent weeks but this is a step up.

If I was offered a losing bonus I'd probably take it at this stage but we've been on the end of a few near misses in the RDS. It'd be great to end that run. Mark McHugh's winning drop goal at Donnybrook is an awful long time ago. If we are in contention late on hopefully the experience we have on the park can get us over the line.

Tonight's game is going to eclipse 2002. 3 tries by half time. Unless we beat ourselves, I don't see this Leinster team having the ability to reverse this score. Cmon Connacht
