EOS, Best, Kane, Treadwell, AOC, Deysel, Reidy, Timoney, Cooney, Burns, Kernohan, McCloskey, Curtis, Stockdale, Gilroy

Andrew, Warwick, TOT, Rea, Ross, Shanahan, J McP, The Admiral


I don't expect we'll even get a team as good as that out!

Takes us back to the days of Reidy having to do the work of half the pack again.

[Although AOC's nasty streak means he is better than nice guy Franco around the pitch and Timoney is infinitely better than lattéweight Diack. Dunno whether we get high octane Deysel or dirt in the tank this week - could make or break the game for us if he shows up.]

Having missed most of the Munster game can anyone advise on how the scrum went?

They will soon be supplying that winter grade diesel and there is certainly not as much life in it.

Coetzee, Hendo and Rory will be increase the potency of the pack +++

Interested to see what Curtis will do at 13. I'm starting to despair over Addison.

They've looked half decent this season under Mr Friend.

No doubt they'll fancy their chances out wide.

The guards were stopping on the way back up the road after the Munster game. Pretty sure the dippers found bad Deysel.

Last seen being put on the back of a low-loader. Omens aren't good. :dredd:
