The Official Irish Rugby Thread 19/20.

harry byrne got man of the match..dragons very poor considering they only had 3 ro 4 players away on world cup duty

Lot of work still to do at the Dragons. Signing the likes of Hibbard who’s coasting to retirement won’t do them any good at all.
Ospreys way behind Connacht too right now. If you were a fan you’d tear your hair out no one putting their hands up for a run with the starting strongest XV.
Leinster side for Connacht game tomorrow night

Few of the internationals brought back in..Good to see Kelleher get another start at hooker..looked impressive last week..still have cronin/ryan/vdf/sexton/ringrose/larmour to come back in

Connacht side

looking forward to see how Tom Farrell goes..also blade/carty will be interesting against mcgrath/Byrne

(15-9): Darragh Leader, Niyi Adeolokun, Tom Farrell, Peter Robb, Stephen Fitzgerald, Jack Carty, Caolin Blade (1-8): Denis Buckley, Tom McCartney, Finlay Bealham, Cillian Gallagher, Joe Maksymiw, Eoghan Masterson, Jarrad Butler (C), Paul Boyle.

Replacements: Dave Heffernan, Matthew Burke, Dominic Robertson-McCoy, Sean O’Brien, Colby Fainga’a, Kieran Marmion, Bundee Aki, Kyle Godwin.
Lots of players there with a bit of form behind them already, particularly Kelleher for Leinster and Robb for Connacht.

Strong benches for both too.
