Delighted for Darragh in particular, but congrats to all the lads. Next step is to get some guys involved in match day squads and starting lineups.

Absolutely delighted for all the lads, but can't help feeling disappointed that Dennis isn't getting a sniff.
Really can't be that far away from International standard this season....

Brilliant especially for Darragh it's come a bit earlier than I expected but well deserved. Well done to all the backroom, and for that matter the front line coaches at Connacht. This is a real thumbs up for the forward momentum that Connacht are now enjoying.

Don't forget there are still 2 games to play before November, and I think Kearney and Buckley are 1st on the complementary list, if one little injury happens in LH or lock...


Very surprised by Leader, was MOTM twice this season, but still I did'nt see this coming :ohmy: :)
Hope he will be released for Ospreys though, as well as the others...

Agreed. That said Joe usually picks a few extra players for the Wolfhounds game so I could see Dennis going up for that. Kilcoyne should count himself lucky to get into the squad with Cronin pushing him for his provincial place and Buckley and Warwick having stellar seasons. The flip-side of course is Rodney hasn't played much this season and still got picked up. Joe obviously has his reasons.

P.S. Congrats to all. Five in the senior squad is a massive achievement.

With Layden, Aki and Porter, I 'm not desperate
BUT for TH, I just pray that uncle Joe would consent to release one of White/AhYou. If not, big big troubles to come...

so who's gonna play full-back for us against Ospreys, if mils isn't fit then Layden is our only other option? you could'nt pick Carr on his current form, has Healy ever played No. 15? actually you know what I think he'd be a pretty good 15.

Loughney has played at tighthead and Loosehead.

Layden or TOH who should be back. But for TH... :huh: Really believe that AhYou will be allowed to play this one, Joe must see him as a medical joker and he needs gametime anyway

Yep, but don't know what to think about a comeback to TH for once...

Surely Mils must almost be ready. It was always late October when they expected him to be available

Initially it was the plan, but will they take the risk, after 7 months out of the fields

Nice for him!! But I hope Ross will make it at least on the bench. Even if I'd love a 100% Connacht-TH starter and sub, I'd prefer Ah You released for Ospreys...

Reading between the lines he seems to rate Rodney higher than Archer. Shame that he didn't give Buckley even a passing mention.
