Decent bit of business and the Connacht offload style might suit him better than Munster....


It never really took off for him at Munster, most would assume the player is at fault for this, partly true of course but the organisation also has to make it work / create opportunities. There are a lot of players who go into Munster and end up wasted. JJ H is an interesting one at the moment. He's talented, but floundering at Munster. Good luck to Copeland.

Well that sorts that out then, still no word of a 10 for Ulster, mind you we don't actually have very many players signed for next season yet, or else they just have not been announced

A Centre AND an Outhalf. Ulster won't be impressed.

Connacht taking a leaf out of our gameplan v Edinburgh by gift wrapping 12 points for them.

Props Denis Coulson and J.P. Cooney both confirmed to be leaving Connacht. Rumours around that Dooley is going to be going to Connacht but it seems to be more wish fuflilment rather than based on any sold evidence.

Maybe they'll bring in Loughman? Carolan would know him from Ireland U20s

The Connacht coach has a bullet to bite if they are to become a better team.
Jack Carty isn't cutting it at OH.
His place kicking in particular is just awful.
You'd wonder how many tight games have they lost because of the difference in quality of the respective kickers.
IM would suit their style but he probably wouldn't be interested.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall who's the greatest player of them all? It is Drico your majesty.

Rumours of Connacht being linked with a Northampton Out-Half. Also Andrew Browne becomes the latest guy to leave. Supposedly some Munster academy players are going to go West next season but no idea who or if the rumours are true.
