Supposed to grow the game yet we have a position where there are less games in the main tournament yet no additional coverage of the 2nd tier.

Thats before we get into the new better magic sponsorship deals which are so magic we have the same sponsors as the old tournament but at less money.

What a f%~k up.


Under the old Sky/BT deal, Sky always showed a Challenge Cup game on the Thursday night etc. In France there are 2 Challenge games shown every round - one on BEIN Sport and one on Free To Air TV.

Connacht are in the market for an IQ Scrumhalf as a medical joker so I'd imaginge we'll be seeing James Hart heading up there sooner rather than later. They're also looking for a back three player (medical joker) so Leo could be getting a call to let one of our guys head west for experience.

Their stadium upgrade projected to cost €30m.
How accurate is that likely to be and how much will the IRFU have to put up to make it happen.

Is the Connacht team, named to play Perpignan this weekend in France, the youngest average age they have selected in the professional era?
