There was a French team walking around town on Saturday afternoon, any idea who they might have been? Just curious because it couldn't have been the u-18s if they were in Ashbourne.

Good to see a good quota of Exiles involved too, our supply of British based Irish players hasn't exactly been a production line recently. And congrats to Diablo Junior on his cap!

None of the Exiles looked like potential superstars unfortunately.
They have just kicked off their 2nd match against Scotland but there is no live feed unfortunately so I will have to go back to work! Hawkshaw, the Belvo outhalf is starting.

Yeah, I see on their site Scotland only retained 3 players from their 1st game against Wales. Still, the Irish team had a lot of changes as well. We clearly have a lot more strength in depth.
