First topic message reminder :

What it says in the title - a place to put all bits of news not worth starting a thread for the Four Proud Provinces of Ireland such as new signings, interviews that maybe of interest to others etc.

I reckon there could be a clearout because they've signed Fardy as well as 7 academy graduates and are looking to sign James Lowe from the Chiefs. The highlighted players look the most likely to stay.

Bringing through 7 from the academy is good going.  Also considering two of them are outhalfs in Ross Byrne and Joey Carbery, those are usually hens-teeth to find.

The signing of Fardy as a lock still feels a bit wierd would it be better to have a pure lock enforcer than a flanker being outsized moving to the second row, we must be expecting a good few of our current options not to be around next season. And with Ryan coming through the system and Molony still very young there some decent competition appearing in the second row.

McCarthy is heading to Narbonne for next season. That's one lock gone from the squad for next season

Who are the 6 at Ulster?

Van der Merwe (Moving to Cardiff at end of season)

Coetzee

Pienaar (Unfairly forced out by Nucifora/IRFU at end of season)

Piutau

Projects: (both Irish qualified next season)

Herbst

Ludik

We were allowed two projects this season because Ireland have their eye on Ludik. Probably never play for Ireland, but does give them options.


So, for next season:

Coetzee

Botha

Piutau

Project:

Possible LH Prop.

Who are the 6 in Ulster he asks?

Then he names them Laugh

So you will have 4 next season like we have had for the last 4 seasons.

Do you want a medal?

I'm sure Munster won't have 9 next season either.

Only if you're including projects.

I was just setting out who is at Ulster, John. No need to be a complete prick about it.

Maybe Ulster supporters angst with the IRFU is getting under your skin? Our angst about Nucifora forcing Pienaar out isn't directed at Leinster. No need to be so precious about it, petal.

No need to call someone a complete pr1ck because you don't agree with them.

Or refer to them as petal when you wouldn't be seen dead doing it to their face.

So there's no need to be so precious about it eh... Munchkin.

Listen, if you're going to waffle on about "medals", etc, expect some fire in return. If you're too sensitive for the fight, don't start one, petal. Take up knitting, or flower arranging. Something more suited to your sensibilities.

Believe me I am not sensitive at all. No interest in "fighting" (as you put it) online. People who engage in horseshidt like that are usually too sensitive to do it in real life.

Have a look in that mirror lad. See who's being "sensitive"

I'll leave you to it.

Really nice goodbye message from Zane Kirchner to the Leinster faithful:

"To a badge and a fraternity that literally turned my life around. A place that became home. Friends that grew closer then family.  From me and my family we humbly thank everyone for the adventure. To the organisation, from top to bottom, thank you for allowing me to set foot in a club which I believe is the best that I've ever been.

To the Leinster blue faithful, I hope that even for a little while I brought joy to your presence at our games. The roar and memories of the RDS is something I'll carry and treasure for the rest of my life.

I am very grateful.”

And thank you too, Zane.  Your efforts were much appreciated.  Come back and see us sometimes.

Interesting that he's moving to Dragons. The WRU are to take over the Dragons, and maybe they want someone with Kirchner's experience to help with coaching?

It's also alleged that the WRU are to take over Cardiff. Peter pies will probably settle for a financial return on his investment over the years, or at least some of it.

Interesting times for Welsh rugby.

Say it softly - Welsh rugby finally admitting that for a Nation of a certain size, the Irish way ain't a bad way to attempt survival?

There's a particular Welsh rugby supporter that will not be pleased with such developments.

Ludik only stayed on the insistence of the IRFU

Kearney was looking dodgy re injuries, Jones retired, Schmidt not a fan of TOH.
They wanted cover just in case

I have read that Cardiff will run differently to the Dragons, marty. Don't know what that means, but your comment sheds some light on it. It could just be a temporary fix, but still seems odd that the WRU will have to manage Cardiff, what ever that means?

I think Wales Online have an article on it, apparently the idea is that the WRU takeover the contracts of the players and coaches for two years or however long the work goes on. Apparently they have a £500k shortfall they currently have to cover every season and that'll double when they leave CAP, not sure how though when the big stadium is being considered as a replacement in the short term and I doubt the WRU would overcharge them or burden them with as many of the costs they currently have.

It's strange that they will take over players/coaches contracts if Peter pies remains the owner, unless he is leaving and the WRU will look for a new owner, or take ownership themselves. I'm probably missing something Erm

Isn't the ownership of the blues and Cardiff RFC all a little complicated? Don't Cardiff athletic club own all the land and lease it to the blues? And if I remember the athletic club compromises a cricket and hockey club as well as the rugby club. So who is redeveloping the site?

Thanks, marty.

This is the really interesting bit:

"Would the current Blues bosses resume control and financial responsibility once the ground is completed or would the Union stay at the helm?

Might it even be a mixed ownership model, involving both the Union and private investment?"

So, still up in the air, but does strongly hint at the WRU having greater control, in some form.

Prove I'd be pi-ssed if the WRU took ownership of Clubs they cannot possibly own unless they pay the market price for.  Prove I'd be pis-sed.  You have no links.  Where's your links Martyn and Munchkinyn?  You two don't even know how to do a Google search much less prove your opinions with links.

You have no clue about business practices as your lack of knowledge of Section 3, sub paragraph 4 of the 'Corporate Structure of Big Legal Words and Profit Principle Private Equity Foundation Stock Renewable Dynamics Directives' proves.  And no, I don't have to show you the link as you can't show me the link you claim to have that proves I'd be pis-sed.

Donnacha Ryan is only 6'5 which is too small for a lock (apparently) was never going to cut it. Laugh

I don't know, but I think they take their stats from the provincial websites. The Ulster website have some strange statistics for the players that don't make sense.

Either way, if you believe the IRFU stats...



I guess that means Paul O'Connell was too small for International rugby, considering he was slightly shorter than a 6 foot 5 Ulsterman.

I wonder is Conor Murray partially to blame for Ireland's impotent back line? His biggest weakness has always been the speed of his distribution.

We never seem to score from first phase because we dont seem to be able to get the ball to our backs before the opposition defence has set.

While Murray was sidelined there is a case for saying that the Ireland and Munster back lines have looked more threatening. For Ireland Marmion definitely speed things up V England and Duncan Williams had a very good game in terms of distribution for Munster.

Nah...there's a truth there.  I been tellin' Joe for years to get a whip out for Conor.  That lad needs a few stings on the bum to pump his distribution rate up.  His heart rate is too calm..... and that blasted twirling of the ball as he waits to put in to the scrum proves the consistent lethargy.  
He's looking at the fast boys now from the sideline and he knows there'll be comparisons.  Good for Conor.  It might finally get him off his sleeping-pill addiction. Wink
