Louisi's card on Sunday really should mean that he is in the last chance saloon as far as contract extensions are concerned. We are going to be light at 4/5 now until Europe with only Rawlins and Helps with any pro 14 experience. Time for Drake, Jones and Morgan to step up.

I think Fiji selection is also based on players club home. European are in loco..

Yes. I thought the same about Fonotia. At 30, and only making himself available for the last RWC I thought he effectively made the decision on his future for the club.
Tex hasn't much of a top tier pedigree thus far, so to lose him to an international call up is unfortunate.

Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Then we have back to back trips to Ireland to face the 2 sides least affected by call ups, Connacht & Ulster before finally Leinster at home.



I am only confident of beating Zebre right now.

I was being optimistic! Our season could well be done by the European break.

 We sign overseas players to cover International windows, and they are also missing .

  Let's be honest with the shambles of the season we have now, our recruitment there as not been good .

With the exception of Losi(arguably?),all these absences could have been predicted.Shouldn't they have been planned for?

Well done Tex, leaves us little light at second row, the depth being tested, maybe Kennedy to move up or back the next generation in Helps/Price/Jones alongside Lewis?

Congratulations Tex. Hopefully Lousi wont be banned. Looking at the slow-mo it looked bad, but the attacker lowered their body position after they caught the ball, not sure if that will mitigate the punishment but hopefully so.
