I would have thought that Bundee’s stature in the Irish squad would have meant he would be looking at a standard 3 year central contract, especially with so many central contracts coming to an end after the WC.
I suspect this is buffering of column inches more than anything given how happy Bundee seems in Galway.

Bundee would seem unlikely to be a starting centre in the next world cup (though you never know with the way Ireland players stay in the jersey) so perhaps the IRFU are not bothered to offer him a better contract. It is a position of relative depth though on his day Bundee is better than most or all of the alternatives. No idea how a Farrell union team will play but you assume he will value strength and bosh - he is english after all - so Bundee could be in the mix for him.

Personally wouldn't like to see him leave Bundee has been great for Connacht but he came here to earn money for his family and if he can double that in England or France I won't begrudge him that, its a short career and he's had less big earning time than many.

Can't see the IRFU using a precious central contract on a Connacht player, not when one of the other provinces so obviously need them more than us....

Peter McCabe is back training with Connacht according to Copelands instagram story

Bundee has a new profile pic - Animated Ireland jersey - does that mean he's after getting a central contract????

Peter McCabe and Niall Murray have replaced Paddy McAllister and Sean O'Brien in the EPCR squad, per Murray Kinsella on twitter. Connacht squad on EPCR site not yet updated.

Update: Irish qualified 20 yr old Australian utility back Will Goddard has joined on a short-term contract to cover TOH. Hotshot schoolboy 10, Brumbies academy, played most of his club rugby in the back 3 in Oz, was on the longlist for the Aussie u20 team but didn't make it. Not added to the EPCR squad so more on trial than anything else it would seem.
