So Dooley or Byrne at 17.
JGP or HOS at 21.

If ROL available, him at 12.

Not too bad of an injury report. ROL back in is a big boost. Sounds as though both Leavy & Conan could play a part. McGrath out for Xmas interpros is a bit of a blow, but good chance for the other two to step up and both have been doing well.

Should get a better idea when the sportsfile photos are released later and we'll see who's actually training and who's standing around. Not conclusive I know, but a better idea.

I was wondering why Jack was MIA the last couple of weekends. I assume Ed Byrne will come in for him, hope he does well, he really deserves to after the injuries he's had and the form he's in.

I too have been very impressed by Conor O'Brien's performances in the last two matches. Am I right however in saying that he's ineligible for selection vs Bath, as he's not on our ERCC squad list?

ROL running too, although his knee is heavily strapped. Just a hunch but I can feel the phrase "a week two soon" being used for ROL when they announce the team on Friday.

It's just a case of registering him tomorrow before noon in place of someone like Henshaw or possibly Daly or Tomane

3.5 Each club may register up to three additional players during the pool stage, each to replace a player previously registered. If a club registers three additional players, one such player must be a front row player. Additional players must have a three-month contract with the club and must not have played for another club in the tournament. Additional player registrations must be submitted by 12 noon (GMT) on the Tuesday before the match. De-registered players may be re-registered (in place of the relevant additional players) during the pool stage.

4 Euro games and 3 interpros to get through before you can make any more changes. You can only make 2 non front row changes in that time. I'd say they will use Reid or Frawley at 12. No sense messing about unless you have to.

Also H O'Sullivan in the squad already so we can stick him on the bench if we need Fardy and Lowe.

They call him Dana International in Bath (CockOnASinger) Or did you mean the famous Galway mountain The Rock of Dungooney?

Also. I don't think Dr Jaw is available for them. Joseph is "week too soon" also

I just remembered that Bruce Craig asked for the Toulouse game to be replayed and now I hope we win by a million points.

If he can take down Nick Williams and Josh Matavesi the doc should be no trouble.

Roberts is gone very, very one paced.

Mmnn... he’s also still very, very powerful and big.

I do think that Noel is a brave tackler with a (mostly) sound technique. But size does matter in rugby collisions I’d pick Conor O’Brien.

42 suggesting leavy won't make it for sat with Conan more likely to be involved. Rol should start alongside ringer. Good job we are stacked with back rows!
