Kyle McCall likely to be released I'd say. Ross Kane may escape the cut.
Kyle never quite made the requied standard. He can't hold his own in the scrum.

Can we assume the rest of the local lads are staying?

Any more signings, your highness?

LL surely retiring. I’d back there being enough cover with the pups available now to let Faddes go. Interesting to see how much financial pressure is part of the decision process.

Alby is living here without his family i think; must be seriously tough and he could definitely do a job at mitre 10 level if not super rugby for another season or 2 if he fancied going home. Pity as he would still be the no.2 nine next season if he stayed. The fact shanners got another year would point to alby going.

Agreed - certainly wish him the best of luck & hope he gets something lined up.

Assuming with the talent coming through with youngsters in the back 3 means Lowry still very much in the 10 mix.

With Houston gone from the Academy not aware of another Out Half coming through unless someone in the Sub Academy or potential for Doak to cover. Will be interesting to see how things develop.

Wouldn’t blame Bill if it was his call. Hope he gets over to Galway.

Has to make way for the return of The Ginger Prince. Perfect timing, no feminazis allowed in stadium or to gather in groups outside.

Ulster rugby have thought this one out....

Yep.even the London Times today had an article musing the lack of Irish international 10s, and wondering if PJs contract suspension was intended to be a life ban
