As a loosehead presumably? Makes sense given how injury prone Ed Byrne is. Porter got quite a lot of gametime as fourth choice loosehead last season before he switched.

Anyone else hearing the rumour that he left super rugby because he despised travelling to and spending time in SA?

Well am sure he wasnt going to play in every game anyway
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

Abdaladze is in the academy? Happy to see hair true, good player and would be a waste to leave him rot.

Could be looking at some sub-academy players playing for the 'A' team in the B&I Cup as bench loosehead and at lock?

Massive loss, like it has been said probably the end of his Leinster career.

From a personal pov that is awful for TOD.

From a Leinster pov we are down to Reid and O'Loughlin and the Academy in the centre.

Could be a big break for one of the academy lads.

With Ringrose, Henshaw and Lowe missing until at least October we are a bit under the kosh before a ball has been kicked in anger.

maybe Isa at 12 this weekend is an indicator, long time ago but he played enough at 12 for Blues etc

No offence to Daly but I wouldn't rate him much higher than the other centres in the academy plus they have a much higher ceiling.

Isa at 12 is an interesting call. Good to see Jordi Murphy back from injury too.
