Yep true, although those signings had already been announced, just mentioned the other two because they have not been announced as being part of the Connacht academy.

Was thinking the same thing about Leinster scorers for all the provinces. There are three guys in each of those line-ups who were contracted to Leinster in the past, not guys whom Leinster overlooked and other provinces found value in.

There's a weird and widespread media opinion that this redistribution of Leinster talent rarely happens. It's a belief that flies in the face of fact. The scope of it makes it practically a one-way system. And Leinster are still capping guys earlier, starting guys younger, and putting out more inexperienced teams than any of the other provinces.

For sure. When the TV commentators reminded the viewers of the Scarlets match, that Scott Penney played on the victorious 'Rock team in last March's Leinster Schools Senior Cup final, I nearly fell over.
