Let's see what the prognosis on Luke McGrath is but he definitely won't make this game. I'd say we'd be lucky to get him back for Sarries.

JGP Frawley
Nacewa Ringrose
Lowe Larmour Byrne

Tracy/Byrne, Byrne, Heffernan, Kearney, Timmins, McCarthy, Reid, Daly

We'll need someone to give Garry a dig out in his first game back and Reids form means I'd rather it not be him.


I think we need to see Isa as a bit of a Sean O'Brien this year. I don't think we'll see him outside of knock out games. I'd love to be proven wrong mind you.

Any word on Rory O'Loughlin? If he's cleared to go, I'd have him and Ringer in the center and keep Isa wrapped in cotton wool till the Sarries match. Up North they're mucho worried Cooney's gonna get called up by Joe after Luke injuring his knee. If this comes to pass, I wouldn't be too hopeful of them doing us any favours vs the Scarlets....

Would gamble a bit and start Heffernan for this one.
He needs any experience he can get given that he's likely to be on the bench for the Scarlets game.

ROL presumably failed his HIA given he didn't return to the field. So he has his RTP this week.

Given it is a Friday night game I think it will be extremely tight for him to put himself up for selection
He's gotten awfully fond of that brick

Reckon you're right about Isa and he may even be injured but if he was fit for the Scarlets game I'd pick him.
Have McCarthy and Frawley ever played together?

I'm not sure both your goals are compatible. We have one fit centre with the squad this week, as I see it.

Luke McGrath out for rest of 6N, but Leinster confident of him being back for April 1st (read from that what you will)

Cooney called up to Ireland camp, good for him, bad, very bad for Ulster.

No word on ROL, no word on Tom Daly.

SOB is supposed to be back in 2 weeks. Targeting Scarlet's away. That's through unofficial channels.

Not overly bad. Ulster will get Cooney back for their matches. Decent player but I can't see him displacing Marmion now.

Damian Duff was seen at training.
