I see Danny Qualter and Shane O'Leary are starting for Nottingham versus the Not Not's (Not in London & Not Irish),
It is a bit ironic there's more Irish players in Nottingham and Exeter than in LI.

Great to see John Cooney doing so well up North. Fair play to him for taking his chance.

Tadhg Leader and Pat O’Toole have been named in the USA Men’s Selects squad, which is USA's second choice team, well done to both.

Dave Gannon has popped up in Rugby United New York for the 2019 season. Doesn't look like he has played much since leaving us in 2013.


He's been in the US since 2014, so an outside chance he could play with his cousin, Aj at the world cup?!


Nah he's played for Ireland Wolfhounds 3 times, scoring 1 try

Anyone who was at the Sportsground that night won't forget the incident. But as he said in the interview, it could have been a lot worse.
Wishing him every good luck for the future.

Sad about Ciarain Gaffney alright, at 23 you should have at least ten more years of elite rugby ahead of you.

In more positive news, Stacey Ill has been running out at outside centre for Hawke's Bay this NPC season, he ran in two tries today in a 55-41 home win against Northland in the Mitre 10 Cup Championship...
They'r 6 wins out of 7 this season, in 2nd place...

Congrats to Stacey Ili on making the Manu Samoa end of year tour vs USA, Georgia and Spain. Rewarded on his good Mitre10 outings.

Ofisa Treviranus as always also in the squad.

Api Pewhairangi got promotion with the London Broncos to the Super League. He was injured in last few rounds, but started plenty of games. Not 100% sure how he done overall, if he'll be kept as his contract is finished. Hope he's signed and someone we can keep eye out for.

Sevu Reece ('former player' as he had contract signed and interested in his career) is about to play the Championship final in Mitre10 in 10mins. Live on Sky Sports vs Otago where Naulia Dawai is on the bench. Nathan White is assistant coach to Jono Gibbs for Waikato
Sevu has scored 4 trys in semi final vs Northland last weekend. Last round game, the week earlier, Waikato played Otago in Hamilton and the home team lost as Sevu was suspended for one match.
Reece is currently the outstanding player in New Zealand provincial rugby, leading the Mitre 10 Cup in tries scored (12), defenders beaten, clean breaks and offloads.

Sevu has also asked to be taken out of consideration for the Duane Monkley Medal, awarded to the best Mitre 10 Cup player of the year," Lendrum said.


Which he was leading and would of won

Sevu scored 2 trys in a game he was quiet enough. 1st half was more about the backs and in the second half Waikato used the forwards a lot more to carry.

Dawai came on last 25, was quiet enough until last 5 when he carried more inside the 22. Had a good start to the Mitre10, hope he gets picked up.

Never in doubt, Waikato 36 - 13 Otago.
Well done Sevu and Nathan, some nice rugby
