Fardy is our second best forward signing, Nathan Hines being numero uno although I'm open to persuasion.
Thorn, Rocky and Ollie all deserve very honourable mention.
In the backs ISA and Felipe are the standouts.
Joe and Stuart are our best coach signings and no I didn't forget Michael or Indeed Matt who started the job that Michael finished.
Joe and now Stuart just brought us to another level.

MOC won us a Pro12.

From the 42.
The former Wallabies flanker joined the province on a two-year deal in 2017, meaning his current contract is set to expire at the end of the current season.
However, Leinster are keen to retain Fardy beyond this summer and it’s understood that there have been positive discussions with the 34-year-old about extending his deal.
Fardy, who has settled well in Dublin with his young family, stated his hope to extend his contract as early as the end of last season, telling The42:
“We will see what happens with that. There are a lot of things that have to happen with it being a centralised contract system. It is completely out of my control. I’m enjoying it here in Dublin. I would like to stay, if I could. We will see what happens.”
While Fardy appeared to be suggesting that the IRFU’s desire to ensure opportunities for Irish-qualified players might count against him, it’s understood that the union would not have an issue with Leinster re-contracting the Australian.

Here's to hoping. The man from Wagga Wagga would have said exactly the same though.
We are not Munster, so we will have to hope the Joecifora and the alickadoos are feeling particularly munificent when decision-time comes.

have no problems with older players, just that players set to replace them need to be developed.

Our best forward signing was a certain Leo Francis M. Cullen!

That's cheating a bit, I really meant foreign NIQ.
You're not wrong tho'.

When does one of JGP or Lowe become exempt from 2 non qualified player rule?

Lowe will still be NIQ, but we will have capacity to sign someone even if we keep Fardy, just not a non-European.

I'd be happy to run under quota if we we're allowed keep Fardy

There is speculation on the Wasps forum that Scott could be heading their way. In fairness the source is fairly rubbish.

Gutted if that's true. I think Friday night showed what we miss when he's not playing in games like that.

When there's a loada yum'fellas in the team I think he's been the glue that's holds us together this season.

Yeah it would be great if he stuck around, but seems like they are planning for his potential leaving with dowling/dunne getting more gametime.
