    The teams in the British and Irish cup have to name players that are in their squad right???
    Newport RFC named two Crosskeys players in their team for yesterdays game, one starting and one on the bench but the one who was due to start didnt but the one on the bench featured.

    is that allowed?

    In short, yes. He could have pulled out due to illness or injury or something
    I'm sure in the Australia/Scotland match, there's a player for Australia who wasn't named in the team for today that's playing

    I think as long as the player is named on the list of players for the match, he's ok to start, as the guy in the starting XV could be injured/ill or something, so it's only like having a sub at 0.01 into the game or something
    However, i don't claim to know anything about these sort of things

    Sorry for the third post, but i just realised i completely misunderstood your question :p

    You mentioned in another thread that the two Crosskeys players are in the Newport academy? I'm assuming that because of that they can play, as when my cousin was in the warriors academy he came of the bench in one of the senior sides games before he 'graduated'

    The 3 Irish sides won by the way. Leinster took a 16-13 win from Plymouth with Shaun Berne taking 11 points while Munster beat Coventry away 20-13. Ulster rounded it up with 29-3 win over Bedford. Good stuff.

    Good result for us, we put out a very young side which had an average age of 21 or so. Was shocked to see that Arwel Thomas is STILL playing for Neath.

    A few interesting results there. Great result for Newport - not sure if that was the full exeter team but still good stuff. Ponty will be sick that they lost to Cardiff up there - the rivalry since regional rugby has become even more intense.

    I quite like this competition - it can only improve the standards of the 2nd tier teams.
