Godwin has got 1 cap for the Aussies. Butler will be IQ’d in summer 2020, the other 3 will have to do the 5 year PP period under the new rules - so IQ’d in summer 2023.

Any project player signed after Jan 1 2018 will have to do the 5 years qualifying period.

We should apply for Connacht status since we are not accorded D4 or Munter status, Connacht can sign whoever they bloody well like.

New 3 year sponsorship deal between Connacht and Bank of Ireland, doubtless this is part of the few dollars more that the FIRFUCs secured for their treachery against Paddy & Wee Stu.

It was close but Connacht grabbed the win over Sale. Great stuff.
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

A win in Round 6 could see them through as a lucky loser. Sale ahead on head to head.

That all but confirms we have a monster NIQ loosehead prop to be announced!

We clearly need a loosehead and their wouldn't have been much better Irish qualified out there. There is no way Paddy would have turned down a return to Ulster over going to Connacht.
