It's far from ideal but the situation is perfectly manageable. High earners like Mal O'Kelly, Girvan Dempsey, CJ van der Linde and Bernard Jackman are off the wage bill from next season. Lansdowne Road will almost certainly be filled a few times next season (I imagine the Ulster and Munster Magners League games will be held there and maybe a Heineken Cup match or two) bringing in added funds. The Magners League appears to be going free to air and the added exposure will bring more sponsorship. Leinster are still in a strong position.
