Noel has been great recently, delighted for him and hope he can keep it up. If we end up at the business end of both competitions then I hope he manages to see some game time in the Pro14 games, fully deserves it.
Maybe a statue of ROL, Ferg and Dave standing on a brick wall called Noel.

Yes.
Reported in the paper of disrepute: https://www.independent.ie/sport/rugby/ ... 91801.html

A real shame but totally understandable. He is too good to be a bit part squad player.
He will also presumably be earning lots more money and in a tried and tested environment.
I'm sure Murphy will try and improve things, but their recent record with player welfare is poor. A great club though, with lots of traditional, and great links to us.

Reid has been a warrior this season. Brings a lot of passion to the team. He's had many chances and didn't really take them. This season he looks like a complete player. Good luck to him. He'll be missed.

Has his similarities with Paddy Wallace, a talented ten/utility who settled in late as a 12 and clicked. The international depth is such that he probably won't get the same chances.

Which makes him a good signing.
