Not sure I ever heard official confirmation of the Bradley to Zebre story (possibly because Zebre didn't officially exist) but apparently he's taken a training session with them ...

If I read between the lines from the IRFU Connacht doesn't exist either..A team that is unable to afford to live. No matter all the STH folks we are unable to pay the Strength&Conditioning folks never mind paying for the players. I would like that we set up a fund for our team. I don't want a stadium outside the SportsGround. But I do want a proper stadium within the SportsGround. I, as a Connacht supporter, would be most happy to invest in our future. If the Connacht Clan wants to do this, I will be the first to put my money forward.

I wan't to stay in the SportsGround, its a perfect location, but I wan't to help improve it. So if ConnachtClan wan't to setup a fund I will be the first to contribute.

The word legend is horribly overused but George is one in Connacht. Great to see he and Sene are returning to Ireland, and hopefully to Galway.

My best to George on his retirement, long may he call Ireland home. So happy he was able to experience the championship season with Connacht after having but in the hard work for far less reward during his first go round. Yes, a true Connacht legend!

I've said this before but I honestly believe him signing on for the first time in late 2009 was a turning point for Connacht. He gave us the impetus we needed in the European run that year and that close to the season, in particular the occasion against Toulon gave Connacht the springboard to push on from after a few embarrassing seasons prior to that. All round good guy and a huge part in building to our league success. Wish him all the best for the future.

Great player for Connacht. Glad he's heading back home and whoever gets him as a coach will have a wealth of knowledge to tap into

Himself and Sene are genuinely great people outside of rugby and I wish them all the best

his rampaging runs and ball in one hand was a thing to behold in his first season with us, just wish he hadn't gone to japan before he came back to us, was always a steadying influence on the pitch and no doubt off it

With Pro12 rushed expansion and Currie Cup, Cheethas and King may need extra players... I know an underated winger who's South-African, and may come to visit the Sportsground again...Hope so for him!
