I've read on Twitter that Abraham Papali'i has signed for Brive from next season and it was also discussed on a podcast I was listening to this week.

Does anyone know if there is any truth to the rumours?

I've been wondering why he hasn't been involved in the last couple of games since his time away with Samoa when we could have used him with Boyler out injured. It would be a shame if he did leave as I don't think we've seen the best of him and we don't have many big physical carriers in the squad.

No smoke without fire - fingers crossed its just speculation gone mad at this stage. Obviously he had his work ons, but really will miss the physicality if he is off to less-greener pastures next season.

Absolutely agree. We don't have many big forwards and, while we usually make up for it in other areas, you need guys who can win collisions too, expecially when it's an arm wrestle.

Seen something swirling about that Ultan is off to France next season. He's some warrior for us - but I think he's spoken in the past about wanting to play in France. Would be a big gap to fill.

Sad to see Ultan go, he’s given everything for us over the years. It’s hard to begrudge him a big pay deal, I hope he has a great few years over there.

According to Duncan Casey in the Examiner, Tom Daly is going to Munster to replace de Allende.
