Saw that and two red cards given out in the game (1 french and 1 Tongan) and a yellow as well. Not as bad as the Fiji vs Italy game (4 yellows for the Fijians) but the Pacific Island Nations really need to work on discipline if there going to compete against the bigger nations.

Shane Monahan had a hell of a performance against Munster tonight. Always thought we were to quick to let him go. Glad he's doing well at Gloucester.

I saw that, was the standout player for Gloucester, the Irish Provinces need to keep tabs on players like Monaghan who move to England in their early twenties and get a second wind. they should be brought back if they continue to shine, he's only on a one year deal.

I'd say Gloucester will extend his deal if there smart. NOC played well against the Ulster Ravens in the B&I Cup kicking over 17 points.

It was a shop window performance, he's been very average in some games too. But yes he probably should have been kept on after one season of very few opportunities...

Niall O'Connor is playing for Jersey Rugby it seems. Had a good game against Ulster A in the B&I Cup. Didn't hear he was being transferred, thought he was very much a home bird.

Brian MCGOVERN... formerly of (Doncaster) (Narbonne) (Venezia) now playing for st marys

Daniel Riordan... formerly of (leinster) (munster) now with old belvedere

Aidan Wynne... also lining out for old belvedere.

okay this guy isnt a former player but anyone remember highly rated roscrea player Philip O'Dwyer, he plays wing with daniel and aidan, wonder why he was never picked up by some province, he showed signs he'd be a good player

Adrian Clarke... Boyne RFC

Respectable man these days is Troy, who as it turns out is now an emergency addition to the Zebre team to play us on Sunday.

When Joe Merrigan returned from Coventry he played AIL for a bit with Corinthians and then retired, can't give you a date, maybe someone more knowledgable can fill you in.
