not really news, but a tweet from our former prop, dylan rogers.

So lekker to be in a squad that knows how to have fun. Missed this the last couple years. Being positive breeds success #trainhardplayhard


lekker is Afrikaans for good.

NOC is finished with Ulster after this season with McKinney coming in to replace him. Apparently he's got offers from English and French teams so will going abroad for next year.

Also Cathal Sheridan is in with a very good chance of joining the HEC squad for Munster. Will be good experience for him if it happens.

Yes NOC is in talks don't know with who and yes that is our former SH. He was always a good organizer and someone I'd like to see as Manager of Connacht or Ireland someday. Not coach now Manager.

Was chatting to a friend of mine of he said that Damien Browne might have to retire at the end of this season. He's out with a shoulder injury and apparently rehab isn't going as well as they had hoped. It's still up in the air but you never like to hear about a player being forced into retirement through injury.

It was Colm O'Shea who was injured. So Fanning replaced him? Good to know. Carr came on for Boyle who was 14 which means Fanning played on the left for Coughlan-Murray.

Apparently Damian Browne will be going back to France next year. Not sure what club but it looks like he got a better contract than that being offered to him by Leinster.

It's still up in the air because of his injury and the club that has offered him a contract is US Oyonnax rugby. This was mentioned on the Leinster thread.
