Thats a pretty good draw for us

Think Nottingham have a few ex-Leinster players on their roster (Sam Coghlan-Murray, Jordan Coghlan) and are now being coached by Ian Costello, previously of Munster.

So he has. I'm going to blame my mistake on the Leinster Rugby tweet machine.

Team for this maybe looking something like:

1. Andrew Porter
2. Bryan Byrne
3. Oisin Heffernan
4. Gavin Thornbury
5. James Ryan
6. Josh Murphy
7. Will Connors
8. Peadar Timmins
9. Nick McCarthy
10. Ross Byrne
11. Hugo Keenan
12. Jimmy O'Brien
13. Conor O'Brien
14. Rory O'Loughlin
15. Billy Dardis

16. Sean McNulty
17. Jeremy Loughman
18. David O'Connor
19. Max Deegan
20. Charlie Rock
21. Joey Carbery
22. Ian Fitzpatrick

Who'd bench behind Carbery if Byrne's needed for the senior team? Crosbie's left, right? Call up for Scott Deasy, anyone? Would Dardis or Conor O'Brien or Tom Daly gain anything from time at 10?

Think Loughman will push ahead of Heffernan, Treacy should be there abouts at 2 as well likely Fitzpatrick and Carberry will be starters as well. Dan Leavy & Ed Byrne may be around as well

I was thinking Tracy, Leavy and Ed Byrne would be more involved with the senior team, and might not drop down. I've seen hardly anything of Fitzpatrick, but I liked the look of Keenan from the U20s. I suppose Carbery might start at 15, but I'd imagine Byrne will be ahead of him for the 10 jumper

Van der Flier, Ruddock, Ryan, O'Brien, Conan, Heaslip, Murphy, Leavy not all going to be playing 1st team if available so a few will drop down, Cronin, Strauss if fit no room for a 3rd on match days, ed Byrne has a lot of catching up to do won't be near the senior team until he proves himself injury free. On form Carberry is ahead of Byrne who is coming back from injury but he is a 10 and I think will overtake Byrne who needs a good season this year.

Leinsterforever's team above includes Thornbury but surely he no longer has a contract? I also heard that he is playing club rugby down in NZ

Was thinking the same. 3 Clubs London Irish, Richmond and London Scottish all "merged" back at the dawn of professionalism as Richmond and Scottish got into financial trouble - the professional London Irish Club had their crests at the bottom of their jersey which wasn't amazing to be honest..... On the plus side, it's good to see Richmond and Scottish back AT this level given that they've had to come up the divisions.

If anyone happens to be in London for our away game, I'd thoroughly recommend a trip to Richmond Rugby Club. A proper club,a canteen that only serves pies and bacon butties, great beer, lovely people and Richmond are just across the road from some of the best pubs in London.
