where did you see that? I thought the Bears announced their squad already and Bryan was on the list of departing players?
he's a great player so sure he'll land somewhere but a tough time to be on the market.
best quote from croker was this old boy behind me after about 65 minutes when you could see the red jerseys flooding out of the place

"Lock the gates, make them watch"

Disturbing yet arousing at the same time

Happy for him and a decent signing for Bristol. He's compact and dynamic with a high ceiling if he can improve his throwing.

Well if he doesn't do anything else for the rest of his life he should never be forgotten for his performance (and in particular his offload for Henshaws try) in 2017 at Christmas when we sent the kids down to Thomand and took all the points home :D

Maybe Guy Easterby should pull out his contact book and give Niki Adeolukin a call. With Adam Byrne & DK having exited stage left, we could do with some short-term cover for the wing. The applicants should be competent in the air and capable of taking sharp chances. NA has these abilities.

Hamstring injuries in Leinster? This should be the subject of a forensic examination. Our track record in recent years is really poor and by now, I hope we have some idea why.

at least 3 players out with hamstring injuries at the minute: Adam Byrne, Dave Kearney & Conor O'Brien.

add McFadden and that's 4 backs out with soft tissue issues of the lower body. Not Great.

While the others are suspect I wouldn't agree that DKs hamstring is down to S&C issues. He was caught by a late tackle while in a vulnerable position and was lucky not to have ligament damage.
