Do the same Kolpac restrictions apply in the Pro14 competition as in Europe? Genuinely unsure and would love a definitive answer. Regardless, I am certain that James Lowe now deserves the opportunity to play in a 'big' game for us. We also should encourage Scott Fardy and his wife to consider applying for citizenship or residency as a consequence of their Irish-born daughter.

i've come around to really wanting leinster to win this game, mostly due to bitter munster fans and their reaction to leinster winning, but being realistic knowing that it will be very difficult to get up so soon again post final celebrations.

Eaten bread is soon forgotten Peg Leg.
What have Leinster done for us lately?
Plumber will be under pressure if don't beat the orcs out the gate in the semi.


How's that for moving on?

And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

it's a bonus post saturdays win.

i'll enjoy the hell out of it if they beat munster and go on a win it, but if they lose... ah well, season was still a huge success.

Ringrose/ROL for me.

But sets in the reality of next season, minus Nacewa to cover 12.

If that's true it also puts the pressure on Carbery as goalkicker, without McFadden or Nacewa to step in. Ringrose is a good goal kicker if needed but hasn't done much at senior level. Rob Kearney would be another option if Joey is struggling badly. Is Ross Byrne injured? Given his generally better goal kicking and the management's previous preference to have him at 10, I can see him being parachuted in, with Joey possibly on the bench again.

Ross Byrne is fit I think.

Himself/Daly/Molony looked to be the 24th man on Saturday from what I could see.

Not sure who though.

Carbery has apparently become an accomplished goal kicker behind the scenes. Yet to be tested at serious match intensity, but they'll definitely have him kicking if he starts. If we don't have Henshaw or Nacewa at12, we have a serious problem I feel.

thats the nature of 24th man, you can have as many as you want, depending on who pulls up late.

Bent, McCarthy, Molony, Byrne, Daly were all there ready to step in just incase.
