We're still short a bullocking, ball carrying back row or second row South Sea Islander. That's the biggest gap I see in the squad at the moment.
@ Connachta - Robin Copeland won't like to see you having him in the 3rd's!

Have agreed about your 1st part for ages

but we've quality in back-row and I can't see who can be downgraded for Copeland...

Peter Sullivan of Lansdowne, a 21 year old winger, has linked up with the squad on a trial basis.

42.ie ran a piece about him a while back, it had a potential Connacht target written all over it. Looks like a good prospect, well worth taking a chance on.

Looking through the squad list again I'm struck by how good the age profile is. Average age is just below 26 by my calculations.

So it seems Dean is up to the game

I watched Russian game again, and though critics about Horwitz seem harsh, it's true he doesn't look impressive in contact

I'd go with Godwin, I know this is not the favorite hypothesis

10) Godwin
12) Robb/Daly
13) Farrell
11) S.Fitzgerald
14) TOH (covering 15)
15) Leader

22) Horwitz (covering 10/12)
23) Healy

Fitzgerald looks good but I'd like to see a bit more of him before ousting Healy who to be perfectly honest is one of our all time greats.
