Surprised about Keatley being retained I thought he was signed up in France somewhere? Expected Ryan to be retained and the talking about it all in the media was he and Munster trying to put pressure on the IRFU

How are things looking with Bill Johnston? Is he out injured again?

Where's Madigan off to? Thought he was meant to be a big prospect?

Johnston is injured again as is JJ Hanrahan and with Bleyendaal's injury record, I'd say thats why Keatley was signed.


John Madigan just cannot stay fit. He picks up injury after injury. Maybe a change of enviornment will do him good. He is going to some French second division club.

Anyone watching the Munster game? Can't say I agree with commentary (or the referee) as Biggar was clearly obstructing the ball carrier.

This is one of the mysteries of Rugby Laws, the ball carrier dummied a pass to Biggar just before the tackle. The intention of a dummy pass is to induce the defender to tackle the wrong player, but if he does then it's tackling a player without the ball and a penalty! Somehow this does not seem right.

Salli tackled Biggar.
His actions suggest he was not trying to tackle the ball carrier so hence no obstruction.

I reckon the ref was spot on

If Saili didn't tackle him he might have won a penalty for crossing.
