Or else we'd be allowed to sign a quality niq hooker as a replacement.

The only reason Zebo's move was announced so early was so as to pre-empt his being omitted from the Ireland squad. Clearly, Joe Schmidt said to Zebo that he would drop him if he signed for Racing Metro/PSG. He signed anyway and then made sure it was out before the Ireland squad was announced.

I suspect something similar is happening with Cronin and would not be surprised if we hear in January that he has agreed to sign for a wealthy club. In fact, I suspect the deal has already been done.

You're very suspicious Joe, I hope you're not going to drop a load of our approaching pensioner players based in your suspicions. :twisted:

"Approaching pensioner player"...Cronin is 31, still has his pace as we saw recently, the way your going on he's using a zimmerframe to get on to the RDS

Someone mentioned to me recently that Ollie had competed in an Ironman contest. I assumed they were talking utter b*%&!x and had got it confused with one of those Strongman challenges. This guy used to scrimp on the warm-up sprints when he was at Leinster. Lethal from two metres out though.

He was very fit though as he said himself...

I’ve always loved training. I’m an exceptional squash player. I also love water polo and there’s no more physically demanding sport

It's the least the Indo could do for you, given the amount of content for their rugby pages they get from here.

Malcolm Marx is 6'2 114kg, leinster should be looking to convert Peadar Timmins and other backrowers.

A refrain which is close to my heart and Marx will show how during his 65 mins. Thereafter, Oxygen debt - even at sea-level will prevail

No pure loosehead in academy at the moment and the possibility one of the younger senior looseheads could leave i.e Dooley.

Interesting to see what happens..

Can't see us losing a senior LHP when we will provide two LHPs to National Squad throughout November and all of Feb and March - probably seven Pro14 games in total including Camps. So Ed Byrne and Peter Dooley are essential components of Leinster, regardless whether Nucifora wants to shore up Munster or Ulster.

Loughman going on Loan to Munster is a new variation and assuming he can't play against us, a very good opportunity for him to get game time and still have a Leinster contract.
