    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.

    This is happening to many clubs in The British isles and I'm sure their make the money back. Anyway its a good investment aslong as the quality youths are coming through.

    Leinster will be ok as Snoop said they are off-loading high earners and have talent coming through

    Load of crap, only reason we are hearing about this is because of the Free to Air debate. Ticket sales for the Semi and Final should exceed the debt easily, and the increase in season tickets sold for next season will help no end as well. Hugh Farrelly showing he is an IRFU man through and through IMO.

    MunsterMan I think that is a perfect point too and well this free-to-air thing could get nasty but what I dont get is if the Government see it as a big part of everything why did they let the H'Cup rights go in first place and if Munster and Leinster are so important then why not get ML games also
