easterby released to take up the international job. Hopefully good for Ireland although rough on Scarlets, bad time to have to go looking for a new head coach.

Really happy with this appointment. Think Easterby will be a great addition to the coaching set-up.

Looks like Robbie and Payne are the top two contenders to replace Drico.

From the Indo:

THE race to succeed Brian O’Driscoll as Ireland’s No 13 has begun at Carton House, where Jared Payne has linked up with the squad for the first time.

The New Zealand-born Ulster player qualifies to play for Ireland through residency next month and will be eligible to make his début in November.

Joe Schmidt has assembled 46 players for a three-day camp where he will review last season and plan for the upcoming campaign.

While the IRFU don’t confirm squad details for such gatherings, the Irish Independent understands that Payne has joined up with the panel, along with Robbie Henshaw, who is expected to be his main rival for the No 13 shirt.

Spotted Henshaw and Marmion in Dublin today as part of the photoshoot for the new Ireland gear. Also in attendence were Ross, Bowe, Murray and Henry (maybe some others were indoors when I walked by). I don't know if anything can be read into this but aside from being in Carton house, it's great that the pair are now on the more visible side of things.

I did but I honestly didn't pay much attention as I was on the phone at the time. The one thing that stood out was the hideous Three logo.

A bit like our lifestyle sports logo............... just to big. Want to support the sales of jerseys but do not want to be a walking advertisment board.

Would it really make that much difference to the companies to have the logos a bit smaller, to make the jersey and the badge look more important than the sponsor?

If Healy is out for the November tests (hamstring), Buckley should make his way to the Irish Squad.

Agreed especially with McGrath looking dodgy as well. That means he's up against Black, Bent, Cronin and Kilcoyne. I think he has a dam good chance of at least making the bench on one of these games.

EDIT: O'Connor said that the bang to McGrath's calf was "very, very minor" and that he should be "back in the mix next week" for the match in the Aviva stadium against Munster. Ok so McGrath should start for us but Buckley I'm hoping will be involved at some stage.

Martin Moore apparently out for 12 weeks with concussion/shoulder injury. Adding to that Tadgh Furlong out with concussion and Declan Fitzpatrick getting injured everytime a gust of wind hits him and Nathan White could be making his senior debut sooner than we all thought for Ireland.
