"Jamie Hagan did okay on his introduction to the game and has something to build upon, while there was good news for Leinster and Kidney on Saturday with the possibility of Irish-qualified tight-head Michael Bent arriving from New Zealand to replace the Connacht-bound Nathan White."

Niva played for Counties Manukau after leaving us, don't know if he was retained for 2012.

Andy Dunne is still coaching/playing in the AIL.

I miss Carr and Hagan :(

I see Fionn is on the bench for tonights game.
I wonder are either of them actually happy with their moves? Maybe the prestige of playing for the European Champions outweighs the want to play each week.

Imagine have a proper choice for pros and wingers each week :(

Carr has 19 games or so this year, that's not a bad return when joining Leinster. The difference is they're not all starts, though.

No Darragh had a season in Oz, won their League with Vikings but he's been back in Ireland since last year with St Mary's but not getting too many games though, maybe injured..

He's obviously gone back over (or under) - he scored 2 and set up 1 in their first match of the season the other day. And he's the club PRO apparently.

Ah right, wonder how he managed the additional visa?

See he managed to get into a ACT XV that was walloped by the Brumbies in a Super15 warm-up/trial match back in Feb. And played for them (ACT XV/Brumby Runners) in at least on 2012 Pacific Rugby Cup game

Yeah, I'd say, at least this season, Carr will be the happier of the two with the move. He's played significant minutes in the RaboDirect and scored 5 tries, but as OldSchool says next season might be a different story without the RWC. And at Leinster you know there will always be younger players nipping at his heals. There's always the chance the move will payoff for Jamie down the line, but, to give a dead horse one more lash, both would have done well to spend another season or two at Connacht.
