And Ben Te'o's. He's still wearing protection on his forearm to this day, as far as I can see.

depending on where the future is wrist fractures can be an absolute bitch - Darce's forearm break was a fvkin mess multiple breaks on both radius and ulna that was always gonna leave a stain
the irony being that ad-hominen and appeal to majority are the most often used defences of the apologist.

What makes you say he wasn't training? He was at training: was he just watching?

Also JVDF back doing some training.
Just need our internationals to come safely.
Joey is a loss, hopefully compensated by Lowe, Ringrose and Keardashians

Bench: 16. Byrne, 17. Byrne Ed, 18. Loughman (Porter), 19. Josh Murphy, 20. Timmons, 21. JGP, 22. Marsh, 23. Larmour

It could be very different but its not a bad Squad.


Isa and Ringrose very unlikely

Wearing runners is never a good sign.

I'd say we'll see a team very like the one against Glasgow. Our old friend 'a week too soon' back in town with regards to a number of injury worries.

Backs [15-9]: Larmour, A. Byrne, O'Loughlin, C. O'Brien, D. Kearney, R. Byrne, N. McCarthy
Forwards [1-8]: Dooley, Cronin, Bent, Fardy, Molony, Peadar Timmins/Caelan Doris, Jordi Murphy, Deegan
Subs [16-23]: R. Strauss, E. Byrne, J. Loughman, Josh Murphy, Peadar Timmins/Caelan Doris, Gibson-Park, Marsh, Keenan

EDIT: Would be very tempted to put Ronán Kelleher in as sub-hooker. Was impressed with him in the pre-season friendlies and for the U20s last year in terms of his aggression, pace and attitude, and he looks like a guy who has massive physical ability [inpho training photo: http://inpho.ie/assignment/uNrzCYkMjzUS ... aIl1New..a ].

Dragons at home is a good match to give guys their debuts and it'd be very useful to try another hooker out and hopefully bring a good young player into the mix.

I know how it works, they could have picked any template.. they chose that one, hopefully because Nick Mc is starting.

That's another example of the poor marketing stuff I mentioned ages ago, "#jointheroar"...and nobody is roaring. Don't want to get into another argument about it but whilst I think the criticism was OTT, that stuff is just so basic.

Its patently obvious that you don't know how it works - that ad has been circulating for nearly a month at this stage, since before the Glasgow and Ulster games.

I think the players are a more accurate representation of the likely attendence/atmosphere on Friday night than the hashtag

You can exclude me from that. I'm really looking forward to it, sad I know.

Oh no, I agree with you - can't wait myself. I have a feeling though that the likes of us are in the minority

Ah I don't know about that Dave - I reckon we have a core of about 9,500/10,000 who turn up to every game and actually quite enjoy the chance to see 'the kids' breaking through while the 'big boys' are away
