Re: B & I Cup 16/17

AFAIK Adair has offers on the table for next season from two Premiership sides and one Irish province, the move to Jersey has worked out well for him given the amount of back three talent there was ahead of him at Ulster.

Re: TRANSFER RUMOURS!!

Hardly a new rumour but Irish times reporting today that Greg Jones, ex Irish U20 back row, will be part of our squad next season once completing his degree at UCD, doesn't state if he will be Academy, development or senior squad.

Angus Curtis to arrive over in January.
