Let's not forget ex-Connacht player Peter Durcan who has returned to Limoges after two years at Montauban. Peter also spent some time with La Rochelle. He had a good run in the Fed One play-offs last year.

Speaking of La Rochelle, where is David McGowan now?

Danny Kenny who played for the Connacht Eagles, Munster A and Leinster A has signed for London Irish. Hopefully he can make it there. He obviously has talent if all three provinces were willing to give him a try-out.

Dave McGowan was forced through injury to retire unfortunately during La Rochelle's season in Top15. Real shame as still a very young lad. Had hopes he'd come back to Connacht a seasoned Pro.

Hart apparently had a very good game last night for Grenoble against Racing. Good to see a young Irish Out-half making it outside the provincial system. Someone to keep an eye on.

Hart was outstanding in what was a most unfortunate stumble for Racing on their path to world domination.

Speaking of half backs from Leinster, Peter Lydon should start at 10 for Stade Francais on Thursday night: Paris is unlikely to risk any front liners against the might of Lusitanos XV..!

Ireland should nail down Hart, he's also eligible for France (Toulouse-born mother).

Eamon Sheridan (from Navan) is having a great season so far at London Irish and is worth keeping an eye on. He's only 22 and had a great spell with Rotherham last season.

Sheridan was mentioned here last year. Most importantly for Connacht he is a big lump of a 12 in the mould of Downey.

Peter Lydon put in a good shift for Paris last night, played most of the game at ten but moved to 12 for the final ten minutes. (Allowing the Lisbon-based collective of part-timers and amateurs (Lusitanos XV) play against a Top 14 side is wrong and it was fortunate that nobody was hurt.)

Also, Shane O'Leary, ex-Young Munster, got a run out for Grenoble last night.

James Hart has signed a contract extension with Grenoble keeping him there until 2017. Looks like he won't be replacing Parks next year for us.
