    Bit of a relief to finally have a fixture list after all that nonsense with the Welsh regions. With new coaching teams at Munster and Leinster I'd fancy both coaches will want to put down a serious marker ahead of the HEC. Leinster may have lost plenty of players but if we can find a decent replacement for Cullen than we might have a decent chance of putting up a serious challenge. Would be a massive surprise if Jackman can consistently hit decent form.

    Obviously O'Driscoll will be a loss but in the Celtic League it's manageable, might hit us when we need a bit of magic in the games against Bath and Bourgoin, if they turn up this time around.

    Some of the fixtures might need revising, looks like Ulster are down to play Leinster on Christmas Day, can't see many people making that game. New Years Eve for Leinster Munster isn't a bad way to start off the evening.

    They have one, his name is Ben Gissing, Cullen was a donkey who didn't deserve to be in the team.

    Right so we'll go into the season with 2 locks, one of whom is still injured from the Lions tour. [​IMG]

    The Blackrock captain (Gannon I think), and the guy with the funny name- Knu or Kok or somesuch, God forbid Leinster should have to blood new players

    You're proving my point, we're not exactly spoilt for choice, therefore it wasn't the best decision to let Leo go. He's hardly pushing up the daisies. Bad enough that Kidney let so many other players go before fecking off back to Munster.

    I forgot to mention the Australian second row, Adam Brynes. According to Cheika O'Kelly will be fit for the new season after a hernia operation.

    That's grand then, hadn't heard anything about him signing, good to have some cover though.

    Gordon D'Arcy has undergone keyhole surgery on his injured shoulder which ruled him out of the 3rd Lions test and not the fatigue as was reported by Woodward and Campbell. He should be back though for the start of the season.


    What happened to Christian Cullen??
  12. An Tarbh

    An Tarbh Guest

    He had shoulder surgery in March after tearing ligaments, missed the knockout stages in the Heineken Cup, don't know whether he'll be back for the start of the Celtic League. He was supposed to be out for anything between 4 and 6 months. Don't know if he's back in pre-season training.


    I feel sorry for the guy,should have grabbed the record for most tries in test,but has had alot of injury set backs,and hes had too many surgery's now.
  14. An Tarbh

    and the news just keeps getting worse for Cullen, due to complications with his shoulder surgery he'll now be out of action until February.

    Leinster squad for match against the Ospreys, to be finalised later in the week.

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div>
    Munster squad for the Borders

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div>
    Connacht are at full strenght for their match against Cardiff except for Mark McHugh.

    Ulster have no game this week.

    and O'Driscoll has been named captain after Reggie's retirement but Contepomi will captain the team in his absence, although Easterby, Hickie, O'Kelly, Gleeson and who knows who else will be part of a leadership team. Could cause more trouble than it's worth especially with all the crap that goes on at Leinster.

    Tough start away to the Ospreys as well

    Here's the full team. Warner at out-half [​IMG] Nice to see Brendan Burke back in action.

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div>
    Munster are playing David Wallace on the wing

    Connach have lost to Cardiff in their last 4 matches

    Thought Heaslip would get a start, also thought Kearney was a full back, at least he's a kicking option.

    scarlets were crap, dragons ok, but munster were lucky.

    Scarlets were alright, Regan King looked good but Hercus just kicked the ball any time they had a chance.

    connacht picked up the win in a scrappy game. Warwick was good, first half was poor from both sides. Hopefully when Mitchell comes over he will steady their scrum abit.
