Noel Reid leaving Leicster, I'd take him in a heartbeat...I'd have Manu too if he's keen to get some practice in with Bundee

Wootton signs on a year long loan. Hopefully goes in the same as the majority of other loan signings

Decent player who should be right in the mix for numerous starts, but one year loan deal is not exactly a ringing endorsement for how the outside world views us.
If that's one of our two signings you'd hope the second is a big ball carrier in the pack, even with that next season is looking incredibly tough (smaller squad, less quality, possibly condensed season), without that I could see us dropping down to the bottom of the league as on paper we're a step above Zebre and Kings, about on par with Cheetahs, but behind the rest of the squads in the league :(

Does he have a year left on his contract with Munster? Could be the cleanest way to get him up here this season. Otherwise would Munster need to release him from his contract, which might be messier. I would read anything into a loan, and it having any impact on how the outside world see's us

I think that there are still two signings to come, a No. 8 and a No. 15/utility

You're bang on the money there it seems.

His contract with Munster is due to run until next June.

O'Donnell has a nice step and turn of pace.

Papali'i looks to be a physics student and ardent supporter of the theory that the shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line, so just smash things out of the way and be done with it.

Both guys look like they bring some badly needed beef to the squad.

Papali'i looks like a serious athlete. He's also lightning fast as well as strong and lovely hands always looking for an offload. Tackling could be an issue though. He always seems to go high.

Gosh I am :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

lots of skepitics on board.ie, never played pro rugby at 27 etc.

But we don't ask him to be player of the year. We ask him to put opponent forwards on their arses, gain ground, and offload sometime.
Naoupu 2.0
Our squad needed that profile


J.O'Connor has S&C work to do for his conditionning (he doesn't last a full-game), otherwise I'm really optimistic he brings something special for us : Beast-style
