very HAPPY WITH THIS SIGNING. Although, if it means the end of Triggs at Leinster, as it surly will. I'll miss Triggs as a player but also what he brings to the squad.

Connaught could do a lot worse than picking up Triggs

definitely, I have the feeling though theyre not being allowed NIQ locks though
Lam mentioned it re Muldowney leaving and IQ replacements only, dont think they were allowed one for Marshall hence James Cannon

Muldowney was IQ wasn't he?

Yeah Muldowney was IQ. I know this is more appropriate for the rumours thread, but re. the Maori back, well, according to the Indo we're making a play for James Lowe (who would count as a project player).

This thread, rumour mill, and senior squad have essentially become Peoples Front of Judea, Judean Peoples Front, and the Judean Popular People's Front.

Watching brumbies this morning and Fardy looks in great shape for them. Super work rate, he had tackled, carried, poached ball, spoiled lineouts and had a disallowed try where he showed quick thinking at the ruck. He's in his prime years too. It's an excellent signing, although he could probsbly do with eating steady for the next 6 months if he is going to scrum both sides and to help his clearing out. Donnacha Ryan is indeed a good comparison, mentioned earlier. It's fairly recent he has forgotten about the back row and has not had to serve two masters of weight and mobility. It's really worked for him.

Happy with this. It's a mark of ambition in terms of signing someone who can help win things. It's been a while since we brought in a big name (relatively) from overseas to target an area where we are light.

He should turn a weak area into a strength of he works out.

I watched it and thought he was OK. Gave away a stupid obstruction penalty and was a bit wild with his clearouts, but very energetic and forced himself over for the try (that got called back) very well. I little bit inaccurate, was my read, but in a Brumbies team where inaccuracy seems to be the objective.

He actually reminded me of a John Muldoon type, not just because of size, beard and scrum cap.

That's high praise. John Muldoon is, unfortunately for him, one of the most underated one cap wonders Ireland has ever had.
