Masterson was very unlucky with that long term injury. Thought that he did really well when he came in on Saturday v Ulster.

I agree, I thought he was really good.
I'd wonder if moving into the second row could be an option for him, I'd worry that the injury has robbed him of some of the dynamism that made him such an outstanding player for us.
Height wise he'd be on the lower end for a second row and he might need to put on 5kg of bulk for the position but I think it could be the future for him.

McKeon has been excellent the last two games for us too, our best player IMO.

Agree entirely about McKeon over the past two games being very good - even putting manners on O'Mahony in Limerick. With Masterson back we have some excellent depth in the back row when they're all fit.

Definitely on the short side.. 6'3" I think? Shorter than Sean O'Brien who was deemed to short to play lock at professional level.
