Brett Connon, 18 starts for Newcastle at fly half in the English Premiership has an Irish father. How bad is he?

Oisin Heffernan joining the Falcons next season, Connor Kenny Irish qualified tight head prop also there.

On one level, because Blackett has joined Bath.

Fans of the Scarlets credit him for “turning their season around”.

Given they still only managed to finish above Dragons and Bath, it’ll be interesting to see how the ‘dream ticket’ of Peel and Payne get on next season (if, indeed, Payne gets his cards at Clermont a year early).

Racing are sniffing around Libbok apparently - he’s got a year of his contract left.

Stormers would miss him big style.

They’re supposed to be signing Willie le Roux who is looking to cash in his yen and settle in Paarl.

If Leinster get him they have Furlong, Porter, Byrne, Clarkson, Healy, Milne, Jager >jawdrop
You've got to get your first tackle in early, even if it's late.

Who else! I expect they will also get injury cover for Snyman and Carbery.
We may have got a new playing field but we are still playing uphill both halves when it comes to FIRFU.

I don’t think they will.

With Archer and Ryan both being 35, and Knox set to leave/be discarded, Jager to Munster is a good fit.

Why would Jager want to come here to be 3rd choice behind Moore and O'Toole

Jager is not even that good. He is a decent player but his ability is being inflated because he happens to play in New Zealand for the Crusaders which is unusual for an Irish-born player.

O'Toole is better, and Moore is also better if we assume he can get over his injury and get back to his previous levels.
