Or Chaume from Lyon, free international agent, too, and interesting medical joker.

Or smart idea, there's somewhere a guy called Conan O'Donnell...

Watching playback of weekends friendly against London Irish on Connacht Rugby You Tube page.


As was concern for a good few fixtures over last season or two, another case of Men against Boys physically.

Against teams with power up front and pace/skills out wide we are in for a lot of trouble. Replacing Quin with Fifita alone just isn't enough.

Lose Papa & Fifita and we are an extremely lightweight outfit up front, as the big hits kept coming in 1st half and Connacht's biggest/most dynamic carriers were stopped dead in their tracks or driven backwards.Lots of errors from Conancht at set-piece simply because of the pressure Irish were able to apply due to their greater size and physicality..Irish could have kept the ball tight and made life miserable for us, but they have some great firepower out wide to hurt teams with also.

Better second half, but the first try would not have been given in a competitive game. Final pass to Prendergast was definitely forward...

Wonder is this the Loose Head cover Friendy was mentioning recently, He was on the bench last weekend vs Leinster Development.
21 year old Belgium U18 International who arrived a couple of seasons ago at Trinity as a No.8, but was converted to Loose Head by Tony Smeeth.
Was talk of him getting into Leinster.

I'd be quite disappointed if this was the LH cover tbh but the way finances are maybe it's all that's available.

From listening to AF last week he was speaking about trying to convince someone to move from the other side of the world for a 1 year contract but they were hopeful of getting it across the line, so I assume Vermuelen is not the individual they were speaking about but maybe looking at him as future potential.
